Topic tags/keywords: jet jointer power tool

Just picked up a 12” jet jointer. The previous owner could not tell me much about the machine. Thought maybe someone on here had some knowledge of it. The rack and pinion fence adjustment will not move, the wheel turns freely but the fence does not move. Thanks in advance

The first thing I would do is to to, go to the manuals section and see if I could download the
pdf manual for the jointer. That should give you the parts breakdown and some troubleshooting tips. I do
not know that much about Jet tools, but they seem to have a good internet site.

Is the wheel properly fastened to its shaft, either with a key in a slot or a roll pin? If it uses a pin, it may have sheared off.

Sorry for the delay in not getting back to this. We had a family medical emergency come up and it will be a week before I can get back to the machine
