Do you both have this same Jointer 60HH Helical head ?

Keep in mind that i have only made about 20 passes and there is nothing clogging the dust collection side it is empty of any shavings! There is just a small flow of dust coming out of the area I mentioned.[email protected]/shares/ux0f

Also I just thought of this is there any chance my infeed and out feed were installed incorrectly by the factory as in reversed—so that my infeed is actually the out feed—-I need to look at the configuration closly to see if this is possible.

I just can t believe the machine was designed this way there has to be a glitch

Are other woodworkers just allowing this and moving on !!

Yes same jointer, 60HH. Don’t expect that you will get 100% dust collection from any machine, but it does appear you have more escaping than I do.

It is highly unlikely that your tables were installed backwards. But it you want to verify, the front edge of the outfeed table has a rabbetting groove in it. Look at the picture on the PM website.

Oh, and PLEASE use push blocks and read up on safe jointer use before you run another piece of wood across that machine. Your short video scared the bejeezus out of me. You will be happier if you keep all your fingers.
