Jet JJP-12 Planer/Jointer combo (Jointer mode)

Jet JJP-12 Planer/Jointer combo (Jointer mode)

2228 days ago by GaryB | 7 comments »

Here are several pictures of the Jet JJP-12 jointer/planer combo machine in Jointer mode. I picked up the crated machine with a small flatbed trailer. 3 of us (myself, my 14 year old neighbor, and my 115 lb wife) were able to slide it off of the trailer, then off the palate and onto the mobile base easily, despite the machine weighing over 500 Lbs. It came almost fully assembled in the crate. Only had to install the portion of the guard over the blades, a plug on the end of the cord, and ...

The best deal I ever got!

The best deal I ever got!

2346 days ago by Moshe Eshel | 7 comments »

I was looking at lathes for almost two years before I purchased this one.I previously owned (still do) a JET Mini 1014 (non VS) and was very happy for it – except for the size limit – 10” is a little too small when you want to turn a platter or a salad bowl. However, money was a little tight and I sure couldn’t afford a Oneway or Vicmarc…Anyway I was checking out lathes and even found a chinese one selling for a decent price, but I was unsure of quality, living i...

Using New Shaper

Using New Shaper

1630 days ago by ND2ELK | 15 comments »

I finally got to try out my new shaper today. It has a 1 1/2hp motor and comes with a 1/2” spindle, 3/4” spindle, 1/4” collet and 1/2” collet for router bits. It has two different speeds and a forward and reverse. I really like the idea that I can use shaper cutters and router bits on the same machine. I have not bought any shaper cutters yet because I feel I should buy shaper cutters for each of the jobs as I do them. That holds true for router bits as well. As I do m...

Jet 3HP Cabinet Saw with 30" Rip

Jet 3HP Cabinet Saw with 30" Rip

942 days ago by Walnutz | 9 comments »

There is a summary below if you don’t want to read this rather long review. Purchase and Delivery:I’ve had this saw a little over a year now and thought it would be a good point to review it. I decided on this saw after looking at countless reviews and considering price and overall weight.I purchased it from my local Woodcraft store. The owner of the store delivered it to my garage for a small fee. At first I was a little concerned that the packaging looked to be rather flimsy. It ha...

Yes, I did need a drum sander

Yes, I did need a drum sander

1444 days ago by Ben | 18 comments »

Overview When I run across a list of must-have tools in the woodworking magazines, a drum sander is never mentioned. I hemmed and hawed about whether or not I needed one for my growing hobby. I finally bought the Jet 16-32 last December and I am more satisfied with my purchase every day. A few things that were a little bothersome This machine can be slow. I am accustomed to my planer hogging off large chunks of wood in a couple of minutes. This tool is not meant to replace a plane...

How could they even sell this?

How could they even sell this?

1673 days ago by funchuck | 18 comments »

I was very excited to order this. A 10” Jointer/Planer for only $420? That’s a great deal! And it’s a JET! Well, when it arrived, it looked like the box had been through hell. The top and bottom flaps were opened, the stand was missing, and all the nuts, bolts and washers were scattered all over the place. I was ok with the missing stand, since I had an extra stand from an old Delta table saw I can use. I just had to make sure none of the other parts were missing....

Extra Large drum sander

Extra Large drum sander

1978 days ago by Tony | 18 comments »

I have just acquired this beast of a drum sander from Jet, minus the stand. The installation and initial setting up was very easy, even single handed, but be warned the main part of the unit is very heavy 85kg (187lbs), then add the extension tables and you are talking about 100kg (220lbs). (A similar unit to the Performax 22- 44 Plus Drum Sander, see the review posted by GaryK Please note that this is a European version, the drum sander specs may be different in your country. The i...

New Sander - Huge Help

New Sander - Huge Help

1634 days ago by Troy | 14 comments »

The sander I am reviewing is the new oscillating version, 22-44 Plus ODS. I was able to save a few hundred ordering and shipping through a freight forwarder myself, instead of using a local retailer. I try to help local businesses when I can, but when they don’t want to work with me, it’s difficult. It always irks me when a retailer tells me they don’t have the item in stock, (either out or don’t stock them in general), but that “they can order it for me.̶...

Great Machine, Even Better Service

Great Machine, Even Better Service

692 days ago by lab7654 | 7 comments »

I bought this machine in July when CPO started running them on sale for $400. I was originally going to get the 8” version, but it wasn’t on sale and with the sale price of the 10” one, it was only $30 less. The 10” one comes with a stand, so even with the extra $30 you are probably paying the same. Anyway, I set it up at home as soon as I got it (first picture) and brought it to my cabin later that week. Upon the first start up, it made a rumbling noise when it shut d...

Satisfies expectations

Satisfies expectations

1629 days ago by Twigger | 5 comments »

This machine satisfies expectations as long as you keep in mind it’s a 30” long, 60 lb. machine. So don’t go looking to joint 8 foot long boards as if it’s a 60” long, 300 lb. unit. But for drawer fronts and sides, home-made router table and cross cut sled fences, and the like, it’s great! Also expect, as I’ve seen in reviews of all sorts of jointers, to spend two hours carefully setting the infeed and outfeed tables to being coplanar, and getting ...
