I bet your very excited, I would be if I had that machine on the way. I just bought a new Incra router lift and extension wing for my table saw. I bought It knowing I was going to add the wonder fence to use with my existing incra fence, but thought I’d do it a peice at a time because of the money I’d have to invest. Anyway I finally get the wing, lift and support legs delivered and installed. Well pleased with how everything looked I went to the house, got on the computer to check out the wonder fence and to my suprise due to the demand it’s a 6 to 7 week delay getting it. I should have checked on that before I started but didnt. Now I’ll be sitting here counting the days. That’s my luck!

I recently bought a Sawstop ICS at 25% off and the shipment was very late coming I was starting to think it was a scam given I’ve never seen any discounts on Sawstops near enough 25% off,but al said and done it was delivered a week late,I was also concerned because of bad reviews I’d read about the company I’d never purchased things from before I thought they might send a cheaper model that the ICS model, All said and done it was late due to weather conditions and was the correct model that I had ordered, BTW the company was Zoro and they had great customer service in spite of some of their reviews.

I’ve bought from Zoro before. They do have some stuff that makes you wonder. 25% discount is pretty huge for a multi-thousand dollar saw, congrats :)

By the way I paid just shy of $4k shipped for this JP-1686, i bought a demo/tradeshow used model from Baileigh at about a 40% discount off retail.

They have two left at that price: http://www.ebay.com/itm/262824755452?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

i have a relatively new 8” long bed with a spiral head, yet this makes me a little envious. Nice!

Wow, that is an impressive machine. I am certain that you will be having a lot of fun getting it installed, tuned up and making sawdust for future projects.

Do you already have three phase power or how are you planning on that for such a big motor? Just curious how much that will add to the cost. I can dream about the second jointer posted on eBay!

I’m in the process of sourcing parts to build a rotary phase converter. I expect to spend about $300-400 on that project. I found a craigslist seller who has a 25HP baldor motor for sale at a decent price. I dont need that much but larger motors run more efficiently.

I Hope I’m not being a buzz kill.Moble bases and jointer planers is not a good idea.Set it in one spot nice and level.And leave it!
Looks like a nice machine hope it buzzes your wood to perfection.

Maybe a topic for a separate thread but I was planning on building a mobile base that allowed the wheels to be raised or lowered, when raised the tool would sit on leveling feet. Is there anything wrong with that? My current 13” planer is on a cart I made that has four swivel casters and no brakes, i don’t find it to be an issue to use. I could see how you wouldn’t want a jointer to move though.
