Only use electrolysis or evaporust to remove rust.
Minimize use of abrasives. Think of them as polishing thingies.
Only use a hammer after ALL other alternatives have been unsuccessful.
Only rarely use a hammer to tap something during reassembly.
Squeezzing is better than impact.
If you do not understand, ASK!

JPG - Hard to tell your tone in your reply, but I was jk. I read the newcomer information before and didn't recall seeing the same information you shared in my post that will eventually get buried in all my updates and questions. Also, the information you shared is about operating the jointer and not related to restoring. I would think this information is more valuable to the forum.
I am inclined to "jk" as well, but the comments are valid. I do realize they will be buried as they stand.
If there is sufficient interest in a sticky restoring tip thread, speak up folks and get one started.
