Just acquired a delta jointer I would put in excellent shape for the year except needs new knifes. I see no damage it has original paint on machine but the fence is not perfectly flat the fence is 34L x4H
And there is a 5/64 gap in middle. Will that difference in the fence change the outcome of jointing both at 90 degrees and jointing on a angle? Or should I get the fence machined downed?

It won't affect face or edge jointing, and I doubt angle jointing will be affected, or at least by a noticeable amount. The stock rides on the table with the fence holding it in position.
