Topic tags/keywords: jointer infeed table

Has anyone ever had a problem raising the infeed table on a Jet Jointer (model JJ-6CSX)? I’m checking to see if infeed and outfeed tables are parallel. It needs less than an 1/8” to move…but it won’t budge.

Thanks!

I should have provided a few details. The adjustment wheel will not turn. I have removed it and I’m’ using a wrench to turn the shaft but it is not moving easily. I have just greased the threads of the adjustment shaft. Hopefully that will help. It has almost moved up to the outfeed table height. I can’t figure out what is causing it to move like its in a bind. We’ll see how the grease does.

Did you pull the knob in back that pops in when it gets dropped to more than 1/8” cut depth? At least my Jet JJ6 has one and it will block the infeed from coming back up.

Hi Rich! I attempted to…but am not sure it came out. I read about it…it’s a depth stop i believe. I probably should have paid more attention to it. I bet that’s what was restricting it.

Thanks a bunch for commenting!!!

You’ll need to lower the infeed a bit. It sounds like you were cranking the handle pretty hard and that will pin it. Turn the handle to the right a bit and then pull the knob in back with the round head. Also, you’ll have to keep pulling on it while you crank the wheel left.

Rich you were spot on. I now understand what you meant by pinned. I couldn’t pull that knob/pin out initially so I ignored it not realizing what I was doing. i loosed those three screws on the back that the knob was attached to and it came loose. Now the wheel is moving freely.

Thank you so much for your diagnosis and cure!!!!!!
