The drum must be adjusted after initial set up. This was not my intention when I first got the machine. Almost makes it look like I know what I'm doing. About the thickness of a three by five card. Instructions stated this clearly as well.

Jet 22-44ODS Final Thoughts
"High quality and easy to use."
No tearing panels off to access a hidden part. High quality, well-built, and easy to operate. The tracking you just have to watch it as it is running. But light cuts worked fine, no problems. I like the longer conveyor on the Jet.
