A jointer should probably be at least as flat as a jack, if you are using the jack-jointer-smoother sequence it is doing more precise work.

I would clean it up and put a sharp blade in it, and see if you can take blade-wide shavings of the thickness you need to do the work, roughly 0.005”. If you can, it is flat enough.
