Jointer Producing Uneven Surface
I've spent many, hair pulling hours, setting up and adjusting my jointer.
Aligning infeed, outfeed, precision straightedge, setting outfeed in line with knives in cutter block etc,etc. I've used the special knife setting jig supplied by the machines manufacturer to set the knives correctly in the cutterhead.
I jointed some Ash today I marked the face with pencil lines to see what was coming off. I did about 5 passes at 1/32 to try to get one face flat, ready for the planer. I then got a wedge that I got rid of in the planer.
So something still isn't correct, in the Ash photos you can see the pencil lines to the left which haven't all been removed, perhaps I missed something setting up?
Is really frustrating I have spent a lot of time adjusting the machine and am still not getting satisfactory results.
Attached photo of Ash and also of the jointer which shows the position of the fence that I used for jointing the Ash today. The Ash board edge where has not removed, the edge of this face was down on the table opposite the fence.
I don't think my feeding technique is at fault.
