8″grizzly jointer fence….
I bought my jointer when Grizzly closed some of the 8 inchers out a few months back. I set it up right away, but didn’t have it running for two months because I had to set up a 220v outlet (which many of you helped walk me through). When I first set it up, I check the table alignment and all was good. Last night, after I changed the blades (I decided that I really don’t enjoy this process), I was putting the fence back on and noticed that the fence sat on the table at a skew to the blade. The fence tapers in at least a quarter of an inch and I didnt see any obvious adjustments to correct this alignment. Heck, I even considered that this may be intentional. Not sure how I missed this before, but after thinking about it, I realized that the only thing that this does is bring the stock at skew to the blades which probably is not a bad thing. I also put my strait edge to the fence and found the fence to have about a 32nd of an inch dip in the middle. Although this isn’t the end of the world in most jointer operations, it seems a bit excessive.
I guess I would just like to hear what most of you would do in this situation. It’s nothing I can’t live with, but I figured I doesn’t hurt to throw it out there.

They've been pretty responsive to me so far and I didn't discover my problem till about 2 months after I received the jointer. Same delay getting the jointer up and running
I have a problem with my G0586 8" Grizzly, blades all have a low spot, appears that the fence must have flatten them out during shipping, it was loose when I open the carton but I didn't notice it then just checked the beds and they were OK.
I'll definitely email them to see what they say, but figured asking the forum members couldnt hurt.
If you don't get a response you could post an open message to Shiraz Balolia the owner of Grizzly on either Sawmill Creek or Woodnet websites. He usually responses on those two
