Hi I'm Mark Sodja. I'm a repair tech at ereplacementparts.com. In this video I'm going to show you how to adjust the infeed and outfeed tables on a thickness planer. We'll get started by locating the adjustment screws for the infeed and outfeed tables. By raising or lowering the screw I can raise or lower the height of the table. The first thing I want to do is loosen the lock nut at the base of the screw. I use two wrenches to do this. I want to loosen this screw on both sides. Now I'll lower the table down and use a straight edge to check the height. And this table is very low so I'll need to raise up the screw. And again I'll just use a wrench to do that. I'll rotate the screw until the edge of the outfeed table or infeed table comes up and touches the straight edge. About right there. Now I want to do the same thing on the other side. Okay now that the straight edge is touching the same on both sides of the table I'll just lift the infeed table out of the way. I'll hold the adjusting nut, or bolt, with one of the wrenches and use the other wrench to secure the lock nut. I want to make sure the screw doesn't turn at all as I do this or I'll lose our adjustment. Now I just flip the plane around and repeat the same process on the other side. And that's how you adjust the infeed and outfeed tables on a thickness planer.
