Check the voltage. If wired for 220, could behave that way.

Look for the little contacts on centrifugal switch . They probably just need a bit of cleaning or swarf blown out.
I have a craftsman lathe with a 1hp motor that acts up this usually fixes it.
Search – Craftsman motor centrifugal switch-. To see where to look

If that’s a jointer with a fixed out feed table it’s worth about what you paid for it 0.

Well I took the motor out to check the switch turns out it was packed with saw dust, I cleaned it all out put it back together and it works… I have no problem setting up a table so having a fixed output table is not an issue for me… Took about 20 minutes to set up the new knives, and that was my first time so should not take as long next time… I guess might not be worth it to you, but to each their own …

As far as I know all jointers have a fixed outfeed table. The infeed adjusts for cutting depth, and the Fence adjusts for angle. Simple, If anyone knows of a jointer with a adjustable outfeed table, it would be nice to know.

The only thing I don’t love about my jointer is how the fence attaches, but… Hey it works

My 4” Rockwell has an adjustable outfeed table, but it rarely needs adjustment. As noted, most adjustments are done with the infeed.

I assume adjustable outfeed is to compensate for knife wear? Or maybe it just makes it easier to set the blades? My Atlas has a fixed outfeed as well and it’s never been an issue for me.

Shipping, perhaps.
The clone wars of the 80’s with 8” jointer and dovetail ways. Both infeed and outfeed tables can be adjusted & removed.

You should always look for a jointer with adjustable outfeed.
It makes setting knifes much simpler as the knifes wear you can lower the outfeed a hair and keep cutting.
I don’t know why craftsman bothered making those jointers.

I have owned 4 different jointers, each one a different brand. Everyone had adjustable out feed tables.

Why is the outfeed table on a jointer adjustable?

John Brock: So it can be set to the height of the cutters and eliminate snipe.

Richard Jones: To make fine adjustments so as to get the surface of that table tangent to the cutting circle described by the cutters in the cutter block.

Carol Reed: As you sharpen cutters you will find that you may need to adjust the outfeed table to align with them.
