Looking good Shawn. Having a 6” jointer in the shop is a must even for the smallest shops. I had a ShopSmith with a 4” jointer attachment prior to having a 6” jointer and I’ll tell ya, it made a world of difference in my shop. I’m looking forward to the tune up.

BTW, if you’re interested I made a gauge the can help you set your knives quickly and accurately. I got the idea from the ShopSmith Hands-on classes. You can view here.

Take care.

Awesome job with the jointer videos Shawn.
I’m thinking about the same jointer, or if the penny fairies are kind, the G0452Z with the spiral cutterhead. It’s a few months off though, so I’ll keep your videos in mind.

How much bigger was the G0452?
I have a one car garage shop too.

Can’t wait for the next video.

The G0452 Wasn’t all that much bigger, but would have been too much with my lathe station which will be going in soon. I will be able to store my jointer behind my out-feed table of my table saw. The G0452 high on/off switch would get in the way. All and all you could fit the G0452, but i was all ready starting to feel cramped.

Thanks, I worry the switch may get in the way too.
