I have to prepare two boards to join them, i dont have a jointer, but i do have a power planer, so i put it sideway on a table, checked that i`ts at 90 degrees and put some guides.
So i check the power planer, put the infeed at 0 and find out that the infeed and outfeed are not coplanar, the outfeed it`s paralell to the body of the machine, but the infeed it`s not, the beggining of it is closer to the body than the end of it (The part closer to the knives)
There is no way to adjust them that i can see, i went to the place that sell them, checked the same model and are all the same.
It`s there any way that i can fix that? i was thinking about adding a guide coplanar and paralell to the outfeed before the infeed so i can bypass it, but dunno if it can work.
The boards i need to run are 50cm long and 4,5cm thick.
Here are some pictures.
Here you can see how i put the tool, but that pic is before i put some extensions for the infeed and outfeed…
And there you can see that the infeed is slighty upwards at the beggining.
Any idea is welcomed!
