I was wanting a jointer for a long time. I was looking, but most were upwards of $400, and I am not willing to fork over that kind of money, so I opted for a cheaper, but still efficient one. I saw the Delta, but it had aluminum table, and although it looked very nice, the lightness of it didn’t make me really that happy about it. I was going to get the 4 inch craftsman jointer, when I said to myself, I will grow, I will later want the bigger version, I will be mad I made the desision to get the smaller one. I saved up about $70 bucks more and got the 6 inch version. It is about 80 pounds so I don’t move it unless I have to. It is really nice. It cuts perfect, with no snipe. It was almost ready to go out of the box, and I was useing it within about an hour. The switch had cracked off in shiping, but that is no problem because you can just call up sears and they send you one out free of charge that got here in about 2-3 days. I would by this jointer again and again if I had to. It is truley a great thing to have in a shop and to own.
