It’s 9-17-07 and I’m running a 5” by 24” piece of wood through my jointer. Instead of it cutting at an even thickness. It is coming out on a slope. About ½ inch in it is .66 thick and I stopped immediately. At about 1” in it is .73, at 12 inches it is .83 and at the other end it is .92 inches thick. At the beginning I’m putting most of the pressure on with my left hand. As soon as the paddle in my left hand is past the blades and there is room for the paddle in my right hand to move past the blades I keep all my pressure on the outfeed table. What am I doing wrong and how do I get this piece of wood the same thickness all the way along its 24 inch length?
Please feel free to call me at 302.328.8333 or email me your phone number and I will be happy to call you.
Thanks in advance for your help.
