So i went to check out the shelve and mine was off quite a bit:

I didnt feel like adding all these up, but as you can see….there was quite a gap:

I took a look at the fence locating key, everything appears to be ok, i took the entire fence off and when i put it back it appeared to be the same.

I ended up loosening the two bolts that attached the shelve to the jointer “body” and fine tuned it a bit. I ended up cutting the gap above to about half of whats shown.

Is this how everyone’s jointer like this and i just never noticed? The point is to square a face or two on a board, so if the fence is out of whack a bit, i dont think its the end of the world as long as its close to 90 degrees as possible to the beds.
