Re: Jointing long, thick (and heavy) boards?

Don Stephan
How long are the infeed and outfeed tables on the jointer, and has it recently been adjusted so the tables are aligned? When I adjusted the tables on my 8" long bed Powermatic, tech support strongly suggested I get a 50" straightedge from Lee Valley and follow their instructions. Bet I spent close to 6 hours with false starts, but after it was done I got great results. I still dressed the jointed edges with a #8 plane for even better results.
