With the dust collector ready to go, the only thing left was to adjust the tables on the jointer/planer. Despite my annoyance with having to fiddle again to get a machine working properly, the exercise turned out to be relatively painless. Basically one side of the tables are adjusted for height, and establish an "origin". The other side adjusts for tilt. This allows a relatively easy method of getting the table to co-linear with the cutterhead. Given that there's no adjustment for the planing table, I guess I just assume/hope that it is reasonably parallel to the cutterhead.

After all is said and done, I finished milling my first piece of lumber. Surfaced four sides, and all square to boot.
