Hello everyone, i’m really hoping someone can shed some light on this problem for me. I have an older craftsman Jointer/Planer that is in great working condition, however it has one major problem. Even though the infeed and outfeed tables are parallel when i push a board through it raises up off the outfeed table. Hopefully the pictures below will help…...
To me the table look very parallel weather the depth is set to 1/8” or zero. Now time to put a board through…..
So as you can see it begins to raise up more and more the further i push it through the jointer. I have to keep that back end held down really well or it’ll teeder and no long cut. I have no clue what i’m doing wrong here, i’m really hoping that it’s just a user error. The tables are flat and parallel in my opinion.
I really look forward to any responces you all might have,
