Yes just tight enough so as you can adjust but not tight enough so its hard to adjust.
Originally I think they came with a lock nut to secure them.

Without pictures, can only guess you are referring to gib screws on dovetails on tables?

I asked Google and got these links:

http://wiki.vintagemachinery.org/JointerTuning.ashx
https://www.woodmagazine.com/tuning-up-your-jointer
http://davidwahl.org/2013/01/a-poor-mans-guide-to-leveling-jointer-tables/

Google can show you a few hundred more references on how to tune jointer tables.
Best Luck.

Ditto. Not too tight.
