My New Delta 6" jointer

My New Delta 6" jointer

1474 days ago 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)

1860 days ago 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

Everything We hoped for and more

2235 days ago by kjverlanic | 19 comments »

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...

Nice small jointer for lightweight work

Nice small jointer for lightweight work

2041 days ago 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 ...

How could they even sell this?

How could they even sell this?

1635 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....

YES, the Global Knives fit the PM 54A

931 days ago by Bertha | 18 comments »

There have been several threads concerning replacement knives for the Powermatic 54A longbed 6” jointer..1) the Global Tooling knives fit2) they were shipped in record time (even with the Holidays)3) they were well packaged4) they were insanely cheap5) 5 stars You are seeing that price correctly. I mean, shipping su*ks but what are you gonna do. Wait for a multiple knife order and it’ll be less painful. I am very impressed with this company, and that’s hard to...

Good product, but need beter quality controls

Good product, but need beter quality controls

1639 days ago by longhornboyd45 | 17 comments »

In my quest to become a better woodworker, i decided it was time to purchase some tools to upgrade my shop (aka Garage). With a few projects under my belt, i decided to quit paying the local Big Box astronomical prices for their s4s lumber and go and get myself a jointer and planer. After browsing numerous sites and reading reviews i opted for the Grizzly GO452 and GO505 would fit my needs as a beginner woodworker. This review will be only of the G0452 jointer as i have yet to put the plan...

Martin T54 Jointer

Martin T54 Jointer

2136 days ago by Samel A. Livingstone | 17 comments »

My old 20” jointer had broken table height controls and bed sagged about .05 inch which made straight cuts impossible. every cut was convex. The Company (Cassedi-Italian) was shut down for retooling and told me it would be over a year for new parts. I then looked around for a replacement. The best unit I found was a Martin model T54 20” jointer I work with a lot of wider lumber and refuse to cut it into strips. The jointer arrived from N. Carolina and waswell crated with no ...

01. ShippingPlaced order on 12/8 and it was shipped out on 12/9. It arrived 60 miles south from me on 12/10. I had to wait at the earliest to 12/14 to get it. Driver didn’t contact me so I had to wait until 12/16 to get it. UPS driver helped me haul it 80 feet into my garage. Both boxes did not have any dings or holes in themat all. The driver told me they were extra careful with my package. Shipment weighed in at 582 lbs and the jointer fence was a bear to haul I can say that. ...
