Thanks for the link and suggestions! I am jointing 12” to 16” – 3/4” Cherry and Walnut 1 1/2 to 3” wide. For clock legs. Presently I joint one edge flat and then I rip them on the table saw to 1/16” over final width. Then I go back to the jointer/planer to clean up the edge. This is where the problem starts. If the width is 1 9/16 to start over the length of the piece, after jointing one end is wider than the other. I have resorted to eliminating the final jointing and set up my thickness planer to get all the pieces to the same thickness/width. This system works fine but….....the jointing would be so much easier and faster. I am reading over the article again and then i am going out to “play” with the jointer and see what I can figure out!

Thanks again!
