I'm in the process of setting up my new PJ-882. I could barely move the
outfeed table lever. I called CS and was advised that it probably was
mucked up with cosmolene, and should flood it with WD-40. CS Rep said they
would replace the tiny lever arm if I broke it. It didn't break, but gosh,
it's stiff after half a can of WD-40.
This is a replacement for a Jet 6", and apparently I don't understand how to
properly use the lever to set the outfeed table height. The Jet had a
handwheel, and I could make very small incremental adjustments. The lever
on this PJ-882 seems to me to be a step down from a handwheel.
So, who's got a PJ-882, and how did you adjust the outfeed height?
Second, did your aluminum box with the two little marks work for you?
Playing with the setup, I could get the cutterhead to move a piece of oak
hardwood flooring, but the knives simply slipped on the aluminum and would
not move it.
Thanks for your help. This is the jointer:
