I bought this jointer used a couple of months ago… I am just now wanting to use it and working on figuring out HOW to use it. new to this particular tool.
One thing that I cant seem to figure out is the fence. if I am facing the fence and holding on to each end of it, I can push and pull each end of the fence about 1/2” forward and back. I found the adjustment knobs to control the width and the angle, but I havent found anything that locks the fence securely…
so my question is, could this be broken? also curious as to how important this ‘swing’ is in relation to the type of work the jointer does. is it something I should worry about considering the angle and width lock just fine. the only thing I would think this would affect is the angle of the cutters to the surface… instead of being perfectly perpendicular to the blades, as I go through the cut it would veer slightly.
if this is something that needs to be fixed, anyone know who you would go to to get something like this repaired?
