With the out feed table lowered slightly below the level of the blades at top dead center, use the block of wood method KnotScott shows to get all the blades the same height (they’ll be the same height when they all drag the stick the same amount). Make sure you check the height at both sides of the blades.

Then raise up the out feed table untill it is at the same level as the blades at top dead center, and tighten up the gib lock screw to prevent the outfeed table from moving.

Set your depth indicator to zero and you should be good to go.
