I was wondering if anyone has seen a good source of info on getting jointer tables co-planerl. I’m talking the non parallelogram tables. I think I understand the concept, but sure would like diagrams or photos. The manuals I have looked at don’t seem to have anything substantive. I’m not sure where to shim and how.
Thanks in advance.

Ideally, the outfeed table shouldn’t need any shims unless it sits below the edge of the knives at the top of their travel. Once you have it there, the rest is all about getting the infeed table parallel with the outfeed table

When I had a jointer, I clamped a straight edge to the outfeed table and let it extend over the infeed table. I set the infeed table for zero cut and checked for gaps on the infeed side then shimmed as necessary. Took a while, but generally worked just fine.
