The infeed table won’t raise. Reading through other post someone suggested removing the depth stop. That did not work. The only way to get the bed up is to take the gib screws off and lift it up. Has anyone had this issue? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

There’s a knob in the back. When the in feed table is lowered to a certain point, it engages and will prevent it from being raised past that point. Pull the knob out with one hand and raise the bed with the other.

That is the depth stop. It wasn’t working with it on there so I tried taking it all the way off. Still no dice.

All you had to do was pull on the knob. It’s right there in the manual on page 14. If you’ve cranked the table up hard against the stop, you might have to lower it a bit to be able to pull it.

I have no idea what effect removing it has. It sounds like it might have left the limiter in place with no way to release it.

That device (on my JJ6CSX) is a spring loaded “pull” knob and by pulling, it retracts the pin on the head of the pull knob.

Can’t count how many times I’ve forgotten to pull that sucker when adjusting (and wondering why the table was “stuck”)

There is a chrome “star knob” IIRC that acts as a lock (should be loose)

I did pull it and it still would not lower. That is why I took it off.

Welcome to LumberJocks!

Have seen that problem on other Asian Jointers, but not that model Jet?

Since it sounds like checked the stop pin, and loosened the lock nuts on back; the next logical failure is broken helical gear, or missing teeth on the height adjustment rod. These can become damaged when some Magilla Gorilla forgets the pull the stop pin and loosen the locking bolts on back; BEFORE turning the handle.

Best Luck.

I’m still awake!! Keep up the great work. :)

Seriously, good suggestions since the OP isn’t getting anywhere with my “pull the knob” solution.

If you tried to raise the table with the depth stop in place you may have broken the ‘L’-shaped yoke that transfers the wheel motion on front to a side to side motion to move the table. I bought my Jet jointer from the refurb center that was near the main Jet warehouse in Washington. It had had one of the yokes replaced as the only damage. The guy who worked there said that is the most common repair he makes on that tool. His suggestion to me was to remove the depth stop as soon as I got it home. I did not follow his advice but remain conscious of that anytime I adjust the bed.

I was looking at an exploded drawing of that jointer, if the L arm (Jet calls it a Ball Crank) is damaged, replacements are available and they aren’t that expensive ([email protected]# at one place). Part # JH-T12W.

This was Jet’s customer service’s suggestion. It looks like I will need to remove the jointer from the stand to get to it. So in the mean time I loosened the gib screws and lifted the bed to basically a 1/32nd inch cut and adjusted the outfeed table. That will get me through this project and then I can try to replace that. Hopefully it works.
