Hi all,

I’ve purchased this WE an old Ridgid JP0610 jointer on Craigslist and after cleaning and changing the blades, I’m left with a little issue. I can’t seems to be able to adjust the outfeet table height.

There is a know under the outfeet table but I can only turn it 1/4 turn one way or another. I’ve noticed that there is a screw on the fence side and according to the user manual, one is supposed to lock it down to remove the play in the sliding mechanism of the tables. I’ve untied this screw but the table is still stucked.

I don’t want to damage my jointer so I was wondering is someone owning a similar unit could let me know if I’m missing something.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day,

Pierre

Greetings,

When I received mine, the table lock nuts on the back of the outfeed table (I think there were 3 besides the wingnut) were locked down too tight, I had to adjust them per the manual to be able to change the height properly

Ok, does this mean that you unscrew the 4 bolts, adjust the height then tie them back ?

Three of the bolts on mine are set screws with lock nuts. You should be able to loosen the nuts, adjust the screw then tighten the nut.

The manual states that you should “finger tighten” the set screws until they bottom out then re-tighten the lock nut without letting the set screws move.

There should be no play in the table, but it should still raise and lower freely without too much resistance

You can download the owners manual from here, if you don’t have it.
