@AJ2 I had a heck of a time setting the knife height. I was trying the method where you measure how far you can “pull” a straight edge by hand turning the cutter wheel. Having three knives and adjustable outfeed would only add a fourth thing to screw up for me. Using the 123 block and dial gauge I was able to set the blades dead even with the outfeed table and get flat boards. The only way I can tune the infeed table is to buy a straight edge that would cost about half of what I paid for the jointer. As you said, it sounds like a pain to do so if I start getting poor quality due to infeed table I may just sell it and trade up. It will get me by until it doesn’t for now.
