just wondering, could the width of the board(s) vary over their length. i assume you are jointing the board, i.e. cutting the edge. a bubble level may not be accurate enough to see the difference in elevation from one end of the outfeed to the other. you may need to shim the outfeed table to get it level. over time the ends of the tables can dip just a hair. they don’t have to dip a 32nd to see a difference of a 32nd.
