Anybodys jointer joint perfectly? Have a 6" jet that does an OK job,
but just ain't gonna be perfect. Joint 2 three foot boards and put the
edges together and you can still see a little light if you hold it up
just at the right angle. An ever so small gap, but a gap just the same.
Have shimmed and shimmed and shimmed and tired of shimming . Is this as
good as it gets? I know the outfeed table is sagging or leaning or
something just a % of a thousandth.
Some body tell me theirs ain't perfect either so I can relax.

sorry, but I can't tell you that my Powermatic does just an "ok" job.
It does an outstanding job of creating flat boards. All it takes is a
little fine tuning of the outfeed table height, blade adjustment,
checking to see that the tables are coplaner, and a little experience in
pushing the stock PROPERLY. If you are planing narrow sringy stock,
then you might have to push two jointed boards together with a LITTLE
pressure to see no daylight. Heavier boards should certainly not show
any daylight when the edges are held together. Review your set-up and
