New Jointer questions
i just got the porter-cable jointer from Lowes thats $250
I did this stuff in high school but i forgot stom stuff I think
how do you feed it? I remember passing my hands over the blade after a point, but vieods i find do not show them doing this
What my issue is:
I can still see light when I put the 2 pieces up together and hold it to a light, now i have to move around the angle i'm looking to see the light, if i squeeze the pieces a little it goes away is this okay or should it be perfect out off the blades?
on this jointer I notice i have to keep the pressure on the feed side or the joint only get further apart
I have checked the alignment of everything, The blade are even wit hthe out feed table
and i noticed the in-feed table has a slight uphill from the blades moving to the right. shouldn't these be perfectly flat? ( i put a long straight edge on the out feed over the blade onto the in feed, the gapp at the blade is more then gap on the far side of the infeed table. Does this need corrected?
It seems when i adjust the cut height only the infeed near the blade moves, the back does move just not as much
Can i adjust this table with shims or do i need to return to lowes and try another one ?
I would rather just adjust it and use it then have the hasell of return and setting up again
I'm practicing on a 2x4 for the moment, and side to side is square the square is tight once both sides or all 4 are planed/jointed
just seems the joint is not perfect for jointing, seems fin for other uses like flatting it
