Miles, I’m not 100% sure on saying this. But on the jet the I own I don’t think there is a place to shim it. I called Jet and they sent me an email showing 2 bolts on the sides of the table you loosen, then you adjust the table and tighten the bolts back down. But I can’t get the outfeed table to be coplanar with the infeed table. The infeed table is lower more towards the knives than at the far end. Also the problem I seem to be having is when face planing the middle of the boards are low when I put a straight edge across it. The same happens when I edge join. The middle on the board is low when looking at a straight edge. Maybe it is something I am doing wrong. I checked out the link bubinga posted and realized I am putting entirely too much pressure on the outfeed table. But Any advise on if it is my jointer causing the problem or my skills jointing would help.
