I recently purchased a Jet JJ-6csx jointer. I was setting it up yesterday and before I knew what I had done, I lowered the infeed table too low, engaging the safety mechanism, and now I can’t get it to zero out. It briefly discusses this in the manual but I can’t seem to get it to budge. Has anyone run into this or something similar with their jointer?

Contact Jet support. The number should be in the manual. Jet has very good customer support and they will direct you to a tech fairly quickly. I have called them a couple times with questions regarding a jointer/planer and the service has always been prompt and the tech very knowledgeable.

Had this happen to me on my Craftsman, disengage the safety mechanism. Mine has a small knob that pulls out to let you move the bed up and down on the infeed side. On mine you pull it out and raise or lower the bed till the pin does not go back in. Hope this helps.

Thanks David and Greg. Figured it out. Should anyone ask in the future what I found that helps is to crank the infeed table a little while you’re pulling on the safety pin ball-knob. This helps it to dis-engage. Prior to doing this I knew something wasn’t right as I was tugging with all my might and the pin just wasn’t budging. Now I can practice some edge jointing…
