Yes, even a bubble level 4’ long did not give me any new information. Yet when I apply a caliper to both ends before the jointing it reads the same width on both ends, the middle, etc. When I place the board on my saw table I don’t see any light in the middle of the edge.

Then I place it on the jointer and the first third or half gets cutting action and then stops for the rest of the board. The caliper now shows the board narrower on the end where the knives did some work, but no change on the rest of the board. I’m not much of a mechanic, but will see if I can spot some shims to adjust somehow. Wish I had a jointer plane to finish the job, however I am a real novice when it comes to using planes.
