SOURCE: How do I align beds on Jet jointer?

i found on some jointer/planers that this problem, is the way its designed. you can adjust the two feeds close but not close enough. what your supposed to do is push the wood thru one side with pressure on top and side(right hand), then when it touches blade slowly but steadily switch pressure part on the outfeed side. when you think anout it you are cutting an L shaped notch(until the end) so you dont want the side to be exactly parallel. table top jointers are tricky to use.

Try these folks. They were formerly a Powermatic dealer and still have a number of parts on hand. I was in there yesterday and they are getting away from Powermatic and going exclusively to Sawstop.

SOURCE: infeed table is not level with outfeed table. Can

I'm not familiar with hobby type machines like craftsman, but good shop jointers have levers or hand wheels for the infeed and out,either on the sides or the front. I hope your outfeed is the higher one. When jointing, the amount of stock material removed should be compensated by the hight of the outfeed table, otherwise you will produce a taper near the end of the board your jointing. Check and see if raising or lowering the knives moves the outfeed if you still can't find separate adjusters.

SOURCE: my outfeed table does not run level with infeed table . How do i adjust?

The most important part of the jointer is that the cutting edge is perfectly level with the out feed table, then, bring up the infeed table, with straight edge on rear, make all adj necessary to get these things lined up flat, not level, but flat, straight, even. Then it will cut perfectly flat and even. no snipes,. Hope this helps.

Adjustment on dewalt planer


I don't know which planer you have, but if all the planing happens on the top side of your stock then all surfaces underneath should be at the same level.
If you have a fancy planer that cuts on the bottom side, then the outfeed table should align with the cutters and the infeed table would be adjusted below that by the cut thickness (like a jointer

HOw do I adjust the tables so I do not get a snipe?


Hello,
Adjusting a jointer to relieve snipe can be trickey but here are a few procedures that will help.

-The two tables on the jointer are adjustable, the front (infeed) is what you adjust for cut depth.
- The back (outfeed) needs to be the exact hieght as your knives

The outfeed needs to be adjusted first
-unplug jointer
-using a straight edge on the outfeed table adjust it so that when you turn the head (counter clockwise) the knives just touch the staight edge (NOTE** all the knives should touch the straight edge the same, if not your knives are not set correctly) This is your most important adjustment, if the outfeed is to high or to low it will cause inconsistant jointing.
-Now that the outfeed is trued up to the head you can adjust the infeed table, using the straight edge align it so that it is perfectly lined up with the outfeed table (not touching the kinives) Your jointer is now at ZERO

You can now adjust the infeed for depth of cut, Start by lowering the infeed a very small amount (1/16 of a inch to start)

The biggest problem I have seen is that people try to cut to much at one time, it will work alot better if you take several small cuts instead of one deep cut.

Also- getting the knives set perfectly in the head is a key to success, if this is not happening you WILL have jointing problems. ALSO if the knives are not sharp they will pull the material down causing snipe.

I really hope this helps and if you need a visual aid try looking it up on you tube.

I have used my jointer for numerous different projects, Here is a cool one for tapered table legs.
Take a piece of square stock (like 2x2 ) about 3 feet long, make a mark about 2 foot up and wrap a piece of tape around it at the mark.
now make a mark (we will call it a stop mark) on the fence of the jointer by the head.
with a pencil and number the edges on the 2x2 (above the tape so you dont joint them off)

turn on jointer and run side 1 until your tape is at the fence mark, carefully lift 2x2 and do the same to the 2 side.
only joint the #1 & #2 sides, run several more times and you will have a perfect tapered leg.

I need to know how to adjust the blades on my powermatic model 50 jointer. Its an older model, I'm not sure what year. There are three blades and i need to know what position they need to be in compared to...


I usually adjust the knives slightly above the outfeed table. I use an aluminum straight edge & adjust them using a sheet of printer paper on the outfeed table so that they are about the thickness of the paper above the table. I place the paper on the outfeed table put the straightedge on the paper & rotate & adjust each knife so they just slightly hit the straightedge when I rotate the cutterhead by hand.

Needless to say the jointer needs to be unplugged while doing this.

The infeed and outfeed tables on my DJ 20 are out of alignment


This is common on joiners due to moving of the machine by lifting it around by lifting it by the end of the infeed and outfeed tables. It causes the tables to be moved out of alignment due to the weight of the machine, it must be moved by the base or you always have this problem reoccur. Raise the infeed table so that a 6' to 8' straight edge will clear the cutter blades. At most automotive stores or machinery supply stores you can purchase shim kits (.0001" to .0015") you won't need much, the best because they are a hardened metal or stainless, you can use foil or hard paper in a pinch but it won't last. The outfeed table is only ment to adjust for the cutter height only. Under the out feed table are the wedge slides, loosen them as needed (not to loose) untill you can lift the table enough to slid in the needed shim, start with a .0005" shim. Put same size shim on both sides unless the table is out of level with the infeed table. The shim needs to only go in about an inch, not the entire lenght of the slide, this will raise the end of the table to bring it up. Retighten the wedge slides, pretty tight but not torqued. Check it with the straight edge to see how you did. You probably will have to repeat the process with other thickness shims till you get it right, unless you get lucky the first time. It took me two or three trys. The proof is when you get a straight edge on your wood. Have Fun!

Infeed Table leveling


Well, the infeed table is supposed to be lower than the outfeed table. This is how the jointer actually removes material to flatten a face or board edge. What is important is that the the outfeed table is level with the top of the cutterhead blades, so as you push material through the cutterhead, the outfeed table fully supports the workpiece.

The infeed table is supposed to be adjustable up and down to remove different amounts of material.

If both infeed and outfeed tables were aligned, no material would be cut (assuming the outfeed was aligned with top of the blades).

Technical


a jointer includes infeed and outfeed tables. A set of rotating blades is positioned between these two blades. A fence is set on one side of the jointer to serve as a guide. The infeed table and outfeed table are adjusted so that they are parallel, but the infeed table is slightly lower thereby exposing a small amount of the cutting blades. The woodworker then presses the lumber against the infeed table and pushes it onto the outfeed table; the rapidly spinning blades remove a small amount of material. If the wood is particularly warped, several passes on the jointer may be required.
