Hi
Just bought a dw50 jointer/thicknesser - everything is working fine apart from when stock is fed through the thicknesser it doesn't touch the cutting block.
Tried the spring loaded roller tensioners but no joy.
I'm probably missing something basic!
Thanks

Raise the outfeed table as much as you can to get it out of the way. Adjust the blades so they stick out further and the thicknesser works, then reduce, the height of the outfeed planer table with the standard drag test (youtube if you are not familiar.)

Ok thanks for the reply. I'll give that a go. I think the grub screws for blade adjustment are missing so I'll source them from somewhere
Thanks again
