  • Stuck Outfeed table

    I just purchased the JP06101 jointer and the outfeed table wont budge when I turn the handle. (I loosened the screws on the back already) I called customer service who said to take it back to Home Depot, which is a painful solution for a heavy tool I just spent all day putting together and paid to have delivered since I have no truck. Any suggestions?

    I would try placing a block of wood on the table above the gibs and or screws and tapping it smartly with a hammer. It could be residue from the manufacturing process. A couple squirts of WD40 may help too.

    Good luck, let us know what happens...

        Is there a locking screw or knob some where? #31 is a locking screw, and the other is a gib screws,

        IF you do choose to whack it use a block of wood on the machine or a rubber mallet, (I do not sugest the wack method).

        A gibb is a filler to tighten up the dove tail on the machine to take up wear, and to make the manufacture of the the machine easier, my guess is there is a dried preservative, like wax, sticking it, I would use WD40 or if your really in desperate strait, paint thinner, and then if that not try lacquer thinner.

        If you loosen the gib screws and the lock the table should be lose and should be able to be rocked back and forth a tad side to side,, and once broke lose, it should be able to be lubricated, and the gib screws readjusted, (note the one locking screw locks by forcing the gib tight to the dove tail slid on the table, so jsut snug the gib screw, and test the slide resistance and then lock and go to the next one and do the same so it still slides, with light resistance, and then the lock should be lose and when tightened it should hold the table tight,

        (note: I have never play with a ridgid jointer, but have jointers and a machine shop with gibs on most ever piece of equipment),

          question: did you lossen the screw and the locking nut, there are two pieces on the gib screws.

          An out side locking nut, and then the inter stud screw.
