I just bought a new entry level jointer. The Grizzly G0452P. I have it fully assembled and I’m trying to align the fence. While I can make the fence 90 degree square to the table I can not make it parallel.
My question is this…should I be able to make the fence be parallel to the jointer tables?
I can not find any way to make it parallel. You can see from my two photos that the infeed side of the fence to the outfeed side of the fence is more than 1/2 inch different. Is this common? Am I missing a setting?
As I’ve never used a jointer I have some other questions:
1. Should the notch in the bottom of the fence trouch the jointer table?
As you can see I am a novice when it comes to a jointer. I am totally self taught in everything I’ve done in my shop (thank the lord for forums like this and You Tube videos!).
Thanks for any help and advise any of you can give me.
