I recently purchased a Delta 6” bench top joiner from a friend on CL. I have read all reveiws on the bench tops but have some quesstions that can hopefully be answered.

I was checking the coplain on the unit tonight and I noticed that when I set the infeed table to 0 on the indicator that the infeed front portion seemed to be highter and the back portion seemed to be lower. I know I can shim both tables but I am not sure what I need to do next.

Junk it. I thru mine in the junk because it spent more time in a ups truck going back and forth getting fixed.

Well 1 out of 3 being neutral verses negative is a start I guess. I know these are not the best machines but I have to work with what I have. I would love to swap out all my tools for good high end stuff but not everyone can do that.
