IMHO… the term your looking for is ‘co-planar’. Your outfeed table is stationary. ( I own an old craftsman 6” jointer) There are four adjustment points under the INFEED table. I had problems with mine trying to tune it with a straight edge. Went to HF and paid twenty something bucks for a dial gauge and magnetic base. End of problems. I also use it to set the knives @ .001 or so above the outfeed. If you need documentation for your Jointer to assist in the tune up, PM me and I can help you out.
