« Part 3: MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE!!! Part 4 of New Shinys!! series no next part

FedEx just dropped off my shiny new Jet JJP-8BT 8” Jointer/Planer…giggles like a little schoolgirl

Probably won’t get a chance to get it put together and try it out for a few days tho (boo), won’t have time to really do anything till this weekend, but like to have it ready and get a little practice in (only used a jointer and planer a few times before). On that note, if anybody has any tips or advice for setting and tuning it up they wanna share, be glad to take em off your hands :D

I think you have made a good choice.

My father has a 4” Delta Jointer I have looked at the Jet & Power Matic he just can’t understand why I would want a bigger Jointer.
