Yeah your right I’m sorry about that I got the knives in as per the owners manual and It didn’t work so well. I got the knives within .002 of each other. When I made a cut It felt like it was banging on the bottom of the board. I think I need to raise the knives up to .030 above the locking bar ” GIB’ and then set the outfeed table according to that. The manual says to set the out feed table .015 above the cutterhead body so this it what I did. I’m using a OneWay Multi gauge with the flat tip. after I finnished setting everything up I then dropped the outfeed table .003 below the top of the knifes arc. Is this correct so far?

-- Ive cut this board three times and its still too short?
