A jointer is used to create a straight surface on a wooden board.


  • To prevent nicks on the blades, please check your board carefully and remove nails, screws, and any other metal bits.
  • Work with pure wood only, please! Masonite, for example, will quickly dull the blades. Even plywood, particleboard, MDF, and the like will shorten the blade life because of the glue content.
  • DO NOT adjust the outfeed table except when changing blades! if you check them and find they are out of adjustment, contact the zone warden or equipment trainer, they will advise what action you should take.

The depth adjustment is made by moving the infeed table height adjustment.

Maintenance Info

Two critical adjustments need to be maintained on the jointer. The infeed and outfeed tables need to be parallel to within 0.001 in. or so, and the blades need to be 0.001 in. higher than the outfeed table.
