I need to pull the cutterhead on my DJ-20 jointer in order to access the
screws that attach the aluminum lip on the infeed table.
(The original lip arrived damaged, and was replaced last year by a
service call, but the guy didn't install it flush with the table. I
didn't notice it at the time, but it's a problem.)
Can anyone advise me on how this is done?
I've removed the belt, the pulley, and the four bolts securing the two
cutterhead bearing blocks. I'm trying to slide the whole
cutterhead/bearing block assembly forward out of the machine, but no go.
The rear bearing block seems to get hung up on the table lips.
