Jointer dialed in

So as I suspected the jointer blades were not parallel to the table. The blades (at least one) were higher toward the outside of the jointer bed causing the creation of a trapezoidal workpiece when jointing the first face. I thought that I had been pretty careful when I installed the new knives but I didn’t realize that they were moving when I tightened the locking nuts. I went over each one tonight and made sure they were parallel and dead even with the outfeed table. I jointer a sample and it came out perfect. Time to get back to making drawers tomorrow.
