I believe co-planer is the term Mike is searching for above. I agree that you need to check this. Some jointers have adjusting screws under the tbale. look there first before shimming since those are easier to use. the table surfaces should be parallel. The knives should also come to the table top. Check both ends of all the knives. Your owners manual should have directions for setting this up. This is important since this is the heart of making a board straight. good luck and let us know how this story ends.
