Hi All, I’m new here. I have a Shop[Smith 10ER that is operational, but in need of a refurb… a ShopSMith Mark V that is non-operational, and I just picked up a Jet JJ-6CS 6” Jointer, a bit rusty. I have a date with some Naval Jelly and a wire brush to clean up the rust, the past owner didn’t take care of his tools! I noticed that
‘ic3ss’ had downloaded a manual, if he knows where that can be had, I’d be grateful.

I am an aspiring luthier, and I wanted to use the jointer to prepare some sitka spruce top plates for instruments. I’ll post some pics when I get some, it’s raining here in Surrey, B.C., just outside Vancouver on the ‘wet’ coast.

Well thanks, what a friendly bunch! Just like the bunch on the ShopSmith forums. Seems to be a common thread with those who work with wood. I am currently working on a ‘oud’, a mid-eastern fore-runner of the lute family. I acquired one thinking I was going to learn to play it, being a guitar player. I had it leaning up against a dresser. I tripped, put one foot through the face and drove the back into the dresser so that one of the pulls poked through the back.

The back is made up of strips of thin wood like a barrel… only waaayyyy thinner. I have repaired the back and pulled the face off of it, and cleaned up the interior. I live in the Vancouver, B.C. area so getting tone wood is not as big an issue. Got some nice sitka spruce pieces, and once the jointer is cleaned up, they get jointed and joined! Then some braces out of the same wood, banding for the interior, and the top goes back on.

I’ll keep you apprised as I get along… Derek
