Hey Man ,I’m new to this site I just joined today. I live in Pensacola, Fl. I started Woodworking Two years ago at that time I purchased several machines that I knew very little to nothing about. I’ve seem to have gotton my jointer smooth out of calibration and need some help in a bad way. It is a parallelagram jointer so each table has four cams two on each side that you move up or down in order to get the tables co-planer. I would appreciate it so much iF SOMEONE CAN HELP. If someone just happens to live in this area I would be more than happy to pay someone to come and fix this rascal Thanks Chris

I found this tip on the newwoodworker site to be helpful:

And another one:

There are several others in the Jointer part of ‘Tips & Tricks’ at newwoodworker. Also search LJ as jointer tuneups are a constant topic here.

Yeah I’ve watched that video and its a pretty good, but the problem I’m having now is are have been having is that the out feed table was moved so what I need to do is to somehow get the out feed table parallel or even with the top of the arc of the knife inserts from front to back. A]. I have the Helical Cutter Head so the knife inserts are just a little harder to work with. The infeed table also has a depth gauge so that has to be considered before you just arbutraily (oops ?), start moving tables. The Tables have 4 cams two on each side that you turn in order to raise or lower that side and area of the table. Also once you adjust one it effects the other three as well. Bottom line is If I can get the outfeed table adjusted then the infeed table will go much easier. But how to get the Out feed table even , front to back with the top of the knives? Does anyone have some type of method to do this? Thanks Chris

You are a little too far from me, but welcome to Lumberjocks!
As I am sure you will be told, it is addicting, and very informative!
