Newbie with question

Hi all. This is my seventh season as a woodworker and really enjoy this forum. I need help with my powermatic jointer. I recently replaced the blades and need help with alignment. Where should I seek help?
Thanks,
Michael in Murphy.

Yes to the manual. I have one blade that is a mm higher than the other two. Can't seem to get all three blades perfectly lined up.

You'll likely experience a knife shifting when tightening. The magnet setters can help with that. Unplug the jointer. For clearances, you can set a straightedge on the outfeed table, and use a piece of paper between the straightedge and the knife when rotating the knife by hand. The knife should just scuff the paper.
