JM3 is right. I never measured my bed widths. Just went measured them. The beds are different widths, for the reasons he states, and therefore give different measurements from the fence. I’ve never cut a rabbet using my jointer, always used the router table or TS. I always knew it was capable, but never much considered it after that.

Buckeye, how much do the measurements differ from each end of ONE bed (infeed or outfeed), and over what distance? That would give a better indication of how much skew present.
