I bought a Delta 6" open stand jointer 2nd hand last year, and i just recently was trying to use it and was'nt getting the results i wanted. After evening up the infeed and outfed tables,and putting a straight edge on it, it turns out the infeed slopes down toward the cutter(not parallel):thumbup:. The infeed adjusts on a dove tailed track and i don't see any way of raising the cutter head end of the table. It just slides up and down hill on the guides. Any tips from the veteran shop owners would be Fantastic!

If it is an older machine post a pic or two at owwm.org and tell them you are a newbie and you will get all the help you need.
Thanks Craig 3

I have a real old Rockwell and it has some set screws on the back side of the tables that allow me to adjust them. Maybe yours has something similar.

From your description it sounds like your table moves on dovetails ways. Usually the problem is the opposite, the table would sag on the side farthest from the head. You can usually use shims on the dovetails to adjust this discrepancy.
