Got this Jointer Monday from Woodcraft, first impressions out of the box was great paint was crisp, not a lot of machine oil or packing grease Just enough to keep the rust off. Assembly took less than an 1/2 hour and the instructions were clear and concise, the mortiser came with all four chisels from 1/4” to 1/2” however I probably upgrade to lee Valley chisels (personal preference) Although the chisels out of the box are sharp and square I would recommend purchasing the diamond cone and lapping the chisels to increase sharpness.
One added bonus was the riser block and extended hold down with bolts along with a bushing to work with extended chisels.
Operation was smooth and the 1/2 hp motor had more than enough power driving the 1/2” chisel through red oak A 3/4” deep by 1 1/2” long mortise took less than 5 minutes from set up to finish cut.
I feel like this will be a tool that will be like the rest of them an serve me a long time to come.
