Let’s be clear on alignment of tables. Almost all jointers have table that will adjust up or down with a hand wheels or lever.
Using them is perfectly ok and should not affect the coplaner of the tables. One might be higher or lower but still in the same or very close plane.
Jointers with Dt ways are not really meant to be adjusted with shims but can be as a last resort.
The Dj jointers with cams in the corners can be adjusted if they need but only if you have a good straight edge and clear picture of what going on.
What type of jointer do you have Holbs.
