Topic tags/keywords: jointer dj15 parallelagram adjustments

Just bought a used DJ-15, 1987 model, Invictus made in Brazil model 37150 serial# 1641
It runs smooth and cuts well.It seemed taken care of with just the usual surface rust. The out feed table falls away from the blades to the end. looking at the fence it seems to be about 3/16 fall. I loosened the stops but the table just goes up and down with that adjustment. It seems I need to raise the end of the out feed table. These are the parallelogram adjustments I assume. There are punch indents on the P-gram adjusting “screw” which line up with punch indents on the body. I take this to mean it is in factory adjustment. See the pics showing the table fall in relation to the fence, the P-gram adjusters and a straight edge across the tables. If I need to adjust the parallelograms do both sides need to be adjusted or does turning one side turn the other side. More importantly, how to they adjust, it looks like it requires a special tool. I tried a hammer and screw driver but am just going to nick the brass that way. I did remove the locking allen key nuts and loosened the lower ones that hold the parallelogram adjustment in place.
Now I see I can’t just down load my pics, not sure now how to get the pics up.

I found the adjusting directions from Delta and printed them out. The remaining questions I would have for others who have done this are; what tool did you use to turn the adjusting screws and is there another problem here because when laying a straight edge across the tables its close to 1/2” off is there even that much adjustment available.

The problem you have to fix, if I read this right, is shimming the outfeed table to be coplaner to the infeed. .5 is quite a drop

Start by inserting feeler guages in the ways. once you have the tables coplaner you can make sure you have the outfeed correct to the cutterhead and then the knives cutting to the outfeed table. This way when you adjust the infeed it will stay coplaner to the outfeed. Dont retweak the outfeed table once you get the slop out of it.

Are they really .5 out?
