My first "good" jointer.
 
The first one was that lil POS Delta....chucked it.
Should the outfeed table be flush with TDC or lower? FWW says some are .015" lower. Hmmmm....

Tips?

P.S. It's a 6" older BusyBee.

Jointer
 
Just wondering what you intend to use it for. The bed is rather short to be effective at flattening anything longer than 24". I had practically the same unit (Grizzly) and after months of trying to fool myself into thinking I couldn't get along without it, I sold it to some other unsuspecting woodworker apprentice for half of what it cost me. Now I invest my money in really good saw blades for the table saw and cut my glue lines rather than joint them.

I think that's the lesson that I'm learning too. I keep trying though!
