I have a Grizzly Jointer, model G0656P, and after adjusting the outfeed table to be level with the blades now the fence is not high enough to move over the table. How can I raise the fence and maintain 90 degrees perpendicular to the table?

First, I would think you need to adjust the blades to match the outfeed table, not the other way around. How much higher is the outfeed table than the fence? On my old 6” Grizzly jointer there were two small “nubs” on the bottom of the fence that actually slid along the table. Does yours have this?

If it is very close you may be able to loosen the fence and slightly lift the fence up onto the table. Some pics might help diagnose the issue too.

For machines with adjustable infeed and outfeed tables, you typically raise the infeed table to zero cut on the indicator, then you adjust the outfeed table to the same height and lock it in place. After that, you lower the infeed table to get it out of the way and set the knives to the height of the outfeed table. From your description, you either had your knives set too high to start with, or your outfeed table.. or both.
