Hey gang. I’m having some trouble with my jointer and/or its operator.
I am milling some 4’x4″-8″ 5/4 QSWO for a table top. I am using my Grizzly G0586 8″ jointer. The problem is, I am getting an uneven cut widthwise; i.e. one side is ending up thinner than the other. I have checked my knives with the setup jig, and they appear to be aligned, as does the infeed and outfeed tables. Which leaves operator error. I have had this jointer for over a year, and haven’t noticed this problem before, including doing some 8/4 QSWO just a few weeks ago.
What am I doing wrong? Am I missing something in the jointer setup? Are there evil gremlins messing up my work? Is it the flouride in the water?
