Jointer

The status of the jointer in the Wood Shop is in flux. The current jointer, which was made by Delta, has limited table adjustments by design. This would be fine if the infeed and outfeed tables were aligned, but they are not, and no practical way has been found to align them. As a result, a board fed through this jointer gets a curved edge rather than the straight edge needed for quality wood working. Plans are being made to replace the current jointer with a used model equipped with tables that can be aligned.
