I have my new thickness planer set up and have run some boards through. I'm really pleased with the result, but the depth gage seems to be off by quite a bit. Is this adjustable or can you calibrate it?? The manaul discusses how to adjust the thickness indicator, but not the depth gage.
In addition, the infeed and outfeed tables are very slightly lower than the planer table where they attach to the machine, that is, at the point closest to the planer. I have adjusted them as best as I can with the adjustment screws, but this really only adjusts the angle of the infeed and outfeed tables relative to the planer table. Unless they are dead level with the planer table at the point closest to the planer table, using the adjustment screws will not get the tables all completly level. Are they adjustable?
PS I just bought some 8/4 rock maple, 8/4 sapelle, 8/4 pakauk, 8/4 ash, 4/4 peruvian walnut, 4/4 lemon wood, and a mixed bag of other species. I have 20 cutting boards to in the next 4 weeks!! If these work out well, I'm going to be brave and buy some babinga and cocobolo or other nice exotics and make some pretty (and expensive) cheese boards!
