The jointer is used to flatten one face of a board, and to create a perpendicular face on an adjacent face of the board.
- Ownership: Bill Jago
- Location: PaxSpace wood shop
- Make/Model: Powermatic
- Part Number: Model 60
Members must complete safety training with the Quartermaster before using the jointer or any other shop tools.
The most common user adjustment is adjusting the infeed table height to change the depth of cut.
1. Loosen the hand screw on the infeed table side (Red circle)
2. Use the hand crank (Blue circle) to adjust the depth of cut (shown on the gauge in the Green circle). I'd probably keep at at 1/16" or so max for jointing the face of a board and up to an 1/8" or so for edge jointing.
3. Tighten the hand screw (Red circle) to lock the table in place
4. Make your cuts.
Please talk to the Quartermaster before touching any of the other adjustment screws on the jointer.
