Topic tags/keywords: ridgid jointer

hey guys i recently picked up a ridgid jointer off craigslist and noticed the cutterhead/knives are not parallel to infeed bed. can this be adjusted? will this even affect the cut? also what replacement blades do you recommend? i’ll attach a picture to show the offset.

That should not make a difference. Unless you need to use the whole table I would move the fence over. By moving the fence you will be using the section of blade that gets little use. I move my fence so I don’t wear out the first 3/4 to 1” of the blade and the rest is still sharp.

Have your say...
