My Benchdog RT came with a couple of spacers to offset the outfeed part of the fence for edge jointing. The slots between the fence and the sacrificial faces allow two different depth settings. I have used it on a number of occasions and it works quite well however set up takes some time.

Wood magazine detailed a jig for table saw jointing but since I gave away all my back issues I can’t look up the issue.

And, I would never consider either approach for face jointing!

In both cases set up time makes a dedicated jointer more appealing.
