I have just purchased this Jointer. I am assuming the long lever under each table, feed and tail, that you loosen the table lock screw, back off the bolt limit screw, and push up or pull down the lever to adjust the depth of cut. It does not have a hand wheel. The levers do not rotate to move table. Any input will help. Thanks. Don

You could call Grizzly and get a manual for the jointer. Or look at this thread which discusses the same thing.

Oops, after I posted this I saw that you were in that thread! Sorry.

In that thread, is that a picture of the jointer? If you could post it here more folks would be able to give you some help.

That’s how my G0654 works. While not as nice as having hand wheels, the table slides very easily.

Here’s the manual, if you don’t already have access to it: http://cdn2.grizzly.com/manuals/g1018_m.pdf

I have the manual, but it does not say anything about the lever, except on installing them. In the parts manual it say’s it is an adjustment lever. So I figure it just moves up and down. Mine seems to be pretty stiff. I’ll use alittle more muscle. Don

Grizzly customer service might have some answers in regards to getting it to move more easily. I’m pretty sure you shouldn’t have to apply much force.
