so im thinking that my jointer beds are not coplaner because my edges keep coming out like big spring joints essentially, so i need something to check the beds for flatness. do i need to buy a 300 dollar starrett straight edge or does anyone get away with 50 dollar “flat stock?” the starrett customer service guy scoffed at the idea of using flat stock as a reference surface and said i need the straight edge, any suggestions?
