  • Knew jointer having problems.(Ridgid 6")

    I have set it up according to the manual but when I try to joint a board I get a high spot in the middle. It will rock when I am finished, same when I try to joint an edge.

    Two possibilities come to mind. First make sure the outfeed table is EXACTLY the same height as the high point of the knives and that all the knives are the same height. Second, lay a straight edge across the tables and bring the infeed table up to the same level as the out feed. Check that the tables are flat in relation to each other (coplanar) if one sags then the gibs need to be adjusted
