check out thewoodwhisper.com. episode 6 “the jointer’s jumpin’ will show you several good ways to flatten & joint boards.

the “getting started in woodworking” icon is a great place to start on his website

goodluck

You want to keep pressure against the fence and on the in feed table, till you get past the middle of the board then shift the pressure twords the out feed table…basically keeping pressure on the side that has the majority of the board on it…at least thats the way I was taught! You have to remember that you are removing wood and the tables are not level.

I have a story with photos and a video on using the jointer at the link below. Have faith, this machine takes a little getting used to! It looks so simple yet is very technique dependent.
