I recently bought a Grizzly 1018 and the outfeed and infeed table is worn. I noticed this when I was checking the baldes, the outfeed is worn back on the oper. side I did not notice this when I bought it. Just wondering if there are any tricks to compensate for this bein worn? it still planes ok but long boards seem to plane with a slight curved cut, I will add some pics in a few days and show what is wrong but I have to go to work now so thanks for any input

Hard to imagine how this could have happened. It should take centuries of normal use to do that. Are you sure it’s not just an alignment problem ?

Sounds like an alignment problem to me too.

no really the infeed table is worn thin the leading edge at the start of the outfeed table is worn to a slight curve I did not notice when I bought the jointer I will send some pics this weekend. Just on the overtime monster at work rite now. But I was wondering are the better jointers made with a hardened table or just cast iron that hasn’t ben hardened I haven’t done a rockwell test on the table but I have a mobile kit at work I may bring home and see

I believe I am seeing what you are, and I can’t imagine how this would negatively affect the performance of the tool.

You will set the outfeed table with a straightedge which will reveal, in a sense, the “average” plane of the outfeed table itself. This worn part, being lower, is just out of the picture as the wood advances from the lower (average) plane of the infeed table, meets the knives which take away material, and then the newly-cut surface meets and travels on the outfeed table. This worn-lower part never makes contact with the wood and will not affect its being properly jointed on the machine.

Kindly,

Lee

I finally got my tables coplanar and a new set of knives, thanks for the help it planes very well now. I got the tables coplanar by leaving the bottom gibb bolt a little looser than the top bolt on the infeed side just takes a little tinkering I guess
