seems like all of the above is true. The old stuff has cool factor and is built like a tank while new tools bring accuracy and repeatability. @ Old Novice – the place I work has been on that show a couple of times. BMW Manufacturing. Pretty high tech place. I see that jointer weighs 220 lbs. Belt gaurd is optional. Times have changed. That’s about the same weight as the Ridgid jointer. Maybe slightly heaver. I think the Ridgid is about 200lbs. Nice looking jointer though.
