I am having problems when jointing boards on my 6” Delta jointer that I am putting a bevel on the side I am jointing. I know the problem has to be me since the fence and tables are leveled and coplanar. I am wondering if anyone can give me some insite as to what I am doing wrong.

I’m sure you will get some replies but you need to give more info about what you are doing and how you are attempting to do it..

Is the face of the board that is against the fence flat? If not you will get a beveled edge.

when i do beveled edges
i turn the fence to the table side
this ‘traps’ the board into the acute angle formed

with the fence outboard tilt
it can let the board ‘slide’ away from the fence
changing the angle slightly
from the vibration

hope this is what you are asking about

I started by jointing the face if the board but something might have not been flattened correctly. I then jointed the edge with the jointed face against the fence.

Id suggest flipping the piece over and see if you are getting the same bevel on the edge with a different orientation of the board. I can almost feel a “suction” againt the fence when things are jointing properly.

I will try that tonight, the pieces I am using a not thick enough for the intended purpose so I can joint till they are toothpicks.
