NEW POWERMATIC PJ882

NEW POWERMATIC PJ882

12-10-2013 09:45 PM by jeffk726 | 22 comments »

After finally giving up on Delta to turn things around, I decided to purchase the PJ882 model during the Thanksgiving sale promotion. After scouring the internet for recent reviews, I decided to move forward with this purchase as there really were no new positive or negative reviews. I deemed the lack of negative reviews as a good thing. After receiving my jointer 1 week after purchase, I was excited to get it up and running. First came the uncrating. The packaging was adequate as th...

Decent benchtop jointer

Decent benchtop jointer

03-12-2010 07:26 AM by Bryan_M | 22 comments »

I’ve been needed a jointer but I work out of my garage and don’t have anymore room for bigger tools. I read good reviews about other bench top jointers and read that Geetech actually manufactured most of them. I was unable to find any of the others (Craftsman, Sunhill, etc) and found that Woodworkers supply has these Geetech jointers in stock. I think I paid around $150 after shipping. It was delivered quickly and packaged very nicely in thick foam. It is a little heavy to ...

Grizzly 8" jointer comparisions

Grizzly 8" jointer comparisions

09-30-2008 06:18 AM by tooldad | 21 comments »

It is not too often someone other than a writer from a woodworking magazine gets to buy 2 different models of the same tool and compare them. I looked through the Grizzly catalog and website and did some paper comparision. I chose the G0586 for the school shop. It was $100 cheaper and had handwheel adjustments for both the tables and the fence. Once I got down to Springfield to pickup the tools, I went shopping for myself (this was planned) My first intention was to get the same jointe...

It was packed well in a nice wooden crate and took some time to uncrat...

My New Delta 6" jointer

My New Delta 6" jointer

06-29-2010 09:59 PM by lanwater | 20 comments »

I just purchased the Delta 6” professional jointer.I did not consider better 8” jointer for mainly one reason: I do not have enough space in my garage / shop. I also did not have the luxury of actually seeing all these jointers before purchase. I went to several stores (Woodcraft, Rockler …) but none had any on display. They all volunteer to order it for me.Among several jointers that were suggested were the Delta 6” professional jointer, the jet 6” jointer and the grizzly jointer. I went f...

Delta 6in Jointer with Stand (Shopmaster)

Delta 6in Jointer with Stand (Shopmaster)

06-08-2009 04:35 AM by Tim_456 | 20 comments »

To begin this review I have to add that this is my first jointer ever. I’ve never used one before so all of my comments are based on being a novice. Also, one peculiar thing is that this jointer is not advertised on Delta’s website and other than seeing it in the Rockler advertisement I can’t find any proof of it’s existence;) The jointer is a 6 in model with a metal stand that needs to be assembled. The bed could be a bit longer but for me it works very well. S...

Everything We hoped for and more

When we were looking at a jointer we wanted to get one that would be able to handle all of our woodworking aspirations for many years to come. We compared 4 different 8” Jointers side by side and decided that since we had the money we might as well get this one, since it ended up on top of our list when comparing the following things: Type & Number of KnivesCuts per MinuteMotorBeltsMagnetic Power SwitchPedestal Mounted SwitchTotal Bed LengthInfeed Table LengthTable AdjustmentFence S...

When I decided to upgrade to a 12 Inch Jointer at the end of 2010 I researched many brands and models. Usual suspects like Powermatic, Delta, Grizzly, General, Shop Fox and even some of the Euro models at the urging of a respected colleague. The Euros were way out of my price range (I refuse to take out a loan to buy a machine as my colleague suggested). While researching the remaining brands I found this video of an Oliver on youtube www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKMxIY0iGlw . The Oliver Machi...

Nice small jointer for lightweight work

Nice small jointer for lightweight work

12-09-2008 07:57 PM by ferstler | 18 comments »

As a retired person who was a relative newcomer to the hobby, this was the first tool of this type that I purchased, and I had hopes that it would do what I needed in the way of hobby-grade woodworking. (I will use the terms jointer and planer interchangeably in this review.) Unfortunately, the short length of the aluminum table sections (spanning just 30 inches) made it difficult for the device to do a good job planing longer boards. In addition, the lack of a solid, two-sided lockdown with ...
