I’m hoping some of you who have more machinery experience can steer me in the right direction. A DJ20 8″ jointer has popped up in my area for $450. I went for a look, and it seems the infeed table will lift almost a 1/4″ with some hand pressure. I popped the first set of set screws out and checked if the second set was snug against the eccentric bushings and all four were tight. When I lift up on the infeed table, I can feel both sets of eccentric bushings move. What gives? I can order new bushings for $5 each. Should I walk away or take on this project?
