Old grizzly jointer question
I just bought a '96 grizzly jointer as a bit of a long deliberated impulse buy. I have been wanting one for years but always ruled it out as a want over a need and was seriously considering one again for a cabinet/countertop build I'm about to start, but decided to go with using a table saw sled. Saw this one on craigslist and went to see it and bought it.
Question: Right after I bought it I noticed the head (think that's what you call the thing the blades are in) was crooked. I'm pretty sure every jointer i've seen the blades are parallel with the in and outfeed table. This one is angled a decent amount. One of the guys there said they're supposed to be like that because they cut better at an angle. I was in a hurry to get home and assumed that was ok, but not questioning. Is there an adjustment that can be made on them to straighten it out, or is it broken, or did older units have a fixed angle?
I'll get the model # off it tomorrow and a picture.
