Report Planer bed is not flat in Power Tools Posted March 24, 2015 Are you positive both the in/out feed tables are completely out of the way of the bed? It appears the left side of the bed the straight edge is proud of the bed. -Ace- Yes I'm sure of it. It's either a bad photo or taken somewhere in my adjustment process where I hadn't gotten it right yet. But when I started adjusting I had all the screws turned all the way in so that the tables was hanging down and in no way affected the straight edge. Thanks for all the suggestions on how to cope with the problem. I'm sure I can find ways to live with it. I guess what I need to know is if I should return it or not. Or to put it in other words; am I expecting too much when I want a flat bed on a cheap planer? Will the next one be just as bad, or is it worth the time and effort to return it and then order a new one.
