could be the way you are feeding/removing the board. snipe is actually the sound the board makes when its end passes over the cutter. the inboard table should be slightly lower than the rear table. pressure and movement must be maintained when feeding the board the entire length of the joiner table.

SOURCE: I need to know how to adjust the blades on my

I usually adjust the knives slightly above the outfeed table. I use an aluminum straight edge & adjust them using a sheet of printer paper on the outfeed table so that they are about the thickness of the paper above the table. I place the paper on the outfeed table put the straightedge on the paper & rotate & adjust each knife so they just slightly hit the straightedge when I rotate the cutterhead by hand.

Needless to say the jointer needs to be unplugged while doing this.

Im changing the spring in the guard of our 6"ridgid jointer it seems like there is a bend in the spring that fits thru a hole in the top plate??the manual does not show this process can you...


I'm not at the shop to look at mine, but they're all pretty much the same. It definitely hooks through the hole in the guard itself, and also in my case (a powermatic) to short length of grip chain. It seems to me there's a better way to hook the spring on, so that it rides a little above the surface of the jointer when in play, and doesn't score a path across the bed as the guard moves back and forth. But with a little trial and error you have no doubt already long since figured this out.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I cannot level the tables on my jointer. When I place a level on my tables,the front of the in table is about 1/4" low. how do adjust it? Or better yet where can I geta manual?


Please go to this link, download the instruction manual, then read and understand it before using your jointer. Incorrectly adjusted, even correctly adjusted, jointers can be dangerous tools, and failure to heed the instructions can easily cost you the loss of a fingertip or worse. Only when properly adjusted with the jointer be of any worthwhile use, anyway.
For more detailed information and numerous good articles with details on how to tune and use a jointer, search google for "jointer tune up".

Can I level the infeed and outfeed tables on my 6" Ridgid planer/jointer? I don't see such information in the manual.


The majority of jointers even cheap chinese imports have 3" or 4" hand cranks for both infeed and outfeed adjustments. The gibs can usually be adjusted when needed even on cheap jointer planers.
The rigid website has a support page and product parts and manual download.
If the download doesnt work call them and insist that they e-mail or mail a paper copy.
Most jointer planers are somewhat similiar in design and appearance.
Some power tool instruction manuals from competitors may have more complete step by step instructions.

I need to know how to adjust the blades on my powermatic model 50 jointer. Its an older model, I'm not sure what year. There are three blades and i need to know what position they need to be in compared to...

I use an aluminum straight edge & adjust them using a sheet of printer paper on the outfeed table so that they are about the thickness of the paper above the table.

How do you make the outfeed and infeed tables paralell? The infeed table closest to the blade is a little lower than the other end? Any suggestions?


Instruction manual is here.

Exploded diagram is here.

I'm pretty sure you're saying your planer tables are not coplanar.

http://thewoodwhisperer.com/jointer-setup/ is worth watching. Despite his comments about a level, a decent level works fine for making sure your tables are flat and coplanar on smaller units like this.

On more expensive planers there are gibs that can be adjusted to fix this issue. Your part list doesn't list any gibs, so it looks like you will have to loosen the screws holding the infeed or outfeed table in place and shim it. You can use a metal feeler gauge to figure out how much need to shim it.

Also, if you're still in warranty, Delta may be able to replace your unit. If you're going down this route, I'd recommend you take a level and your unit into a service center so you can show them the problem.

Be aware that the replacement "could" be worse than the original. Be sure to check it. I recently waited 6 weeks for a replacement fence for my jointer (mine developed a twist) and the new one had a 3/8" bow in that was ridiculous.

Unfortunately the Shopmaster line wasn't Delta's greatest and there have been a lot of problems with them. It might be worth keeping an eye on craigslist in your area, as decent prices can be had on jointers fairly regularly.
