As long as you are using straight knives (and not spiral cutters), the outfeed table need not be coplanar with the cutterhead, but it must be level with the top of the knives (there is a debate – some say the knives should be about 0.002” higher than the outfeed table to account for predicted wear; this is how my jointer is adjusted). Since the blade heights are adjusted independently from the position of the cutterhead, aligning the blade edges level with the outfeed table will true the jointer, regardless of cutterhead position.
