Sorry I cannot help but it’s very possible the machine could be adjusted only from the infeed. This does make it very simple because when both tables are moved it’s gets trickier to keep track.
Just be sure your using a reliable straight edge. Precision would be best but I know not everyone has one or needs one.
It’s a nice looking machine.
Good luck you can do it.

Thanks, AJ – that part I’m agreeing with and thought that could make sense I think. What stumped me a bit further was the idea that there is only 3 points of adjustment for the infeed side. That front closest to the cutter head section of the bed doesn’t have a set screw or corresponding bolt below. Would three points of adjustment make sense, anyone else have a jointer with similar set up? Again if you look to the back of the machine behind the fence you see one of the 3 set screws available on the infeed side. Other two of course are down towards the start of the infeed table.

Maybe the third set screw is for tilting the table to take out a twist? How far off are the tables what’s your plan of attack. Sorry I can’t be more help take your time think it through what each adjustment does. Which way will the table move when you turn something.
Get it all clear and you be fine.
Good Luck

Anyone else have any input here – nothing was found on any of the above sites as an FYI. Wasn’t sure if there was more to it, but I had checked them prior to this so not sure. Again, if anyone has any input it would be appreciated.

Have your say...
