WORKED GREAT IN JUNE

WORKED GREAT IN JUNE

12-11-2012 09:10 AM by DAC | 14 comments »

I was using this tool and had great results. Then came the cold weather and the table warped. I use it for edge planing for glue ups. I first make sure I have a straight edge then plane it for smoothness. In the warm weather it was just fine. Plane the edges and lay the boards flat and if you line up the grains just right it could be almost impossible to tell where the glue line is. Now I get a bow. Ehe ends are fine but gradually bows toward the center of the board. After resawing the boards...

Super Value

Super Value

This is a long review but, I hope it will be useful to someone considering this jointer. I purchased this jointer a few weeks ago and wanted to put it through it’s paces before reviewing it. This is an excellent machine and is one of my favorite tools in my shop. I spent a few months contemplating whether or not I even needed a jointer. After reading page after page of online forums I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger. I came really close to purchasing an 8 inch jointer ...

Grizzly 6” Jointer G0452. Cons: As you can see in the photo, arrived damaged. The base is what was in that box, and the main damage was to the rear cover, (dented and scratched). In the main box with the head in it, the fence support was not packed well, and rolled around in the box, dinging everything, including minor scratches to the tabletop. In the base box, nothing was packed well, and everything else was dinged. The picture of the head is showing the caked axle grease that ge...

One square, two square...

One square, two square...

03-01-2008 03:04 AM by Bill Butler | 13 comments »

...on your way to four-square, this jointer just can’t be beat. I wasn’t looking for high end professional quality in a jointer, and I wanted something more than a benchtop unit. I came across this jointer available at your local HD for $399. I decided to buy it based on the predominance of 4 and 5 star reviews at their site. The unit is easy to assemble, however you should definitely have two bodies to handle delivery, and physical assembly. (I can pickup my DeWalt 735 p...

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

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

07-14-2008 04:51 AM by GaryB | 13 comments »

Here are several pics of the Jet planer/jointer combo machine in planer mode. Conversion from jointer to planer is really very easy. Loosen 2 lever locks, lift the beds ( which move in one piece with fence), swing dust shroud into planing position, then finally activate the feed rollers. The only time consuming part (20-30 seconds) is raising the bed up to desired position. The bed has to be lowered to about 6 inches for the dust port to clear, so to plane 1 inch stock, you have to raise ...

Review of DELTA X5 6" Professional Jointer

Review of DELTA X5 6" Professional Jointer

07-25-2011 09:40 PM by Delta356 | 13 comments »

After my little Craftsman 4” jointer died, circ 1951, I decided to up grade. I looked at a lot of brands and me being a big Delta fan I decided to go with there DeltaX5 6” professional jointer.This machine comes in two boxes one contains the motor/stand, and other goodies. The other box has the jointer and fence system. Once again I have to deal with a heavy Delta box. The machine took about an hour to put together.. One thing that is nice is Delta already mounts the motor, and t...

Love the machine/Hate the service

Love the machine/Hate the service

03-29-2012 03:01 AM by ECharles | 13 comments »

So my brand new Hammer A3 31 jointer/planer combo machine was delivered yesterday. I would like to thank everyone that has posted info on their machine here on the forum. A large part of the reason I bought this machine sight unseen was the great reviews. I have to say the reviews were correct this is a great machine. I put it together, took about 3 hrs, including the carrymaster casters. (Again thanks for the great idea, I love them.) This is a one time buy, it is heavy, well made,and the fi...

I like it but need to learn its quirks.

This review is very long and specific. If you’re in a hurry I suggest reading the cons for both the planer and jointer, the finish quality cheat sheet, and the verdict and coming back to the review later. The first thing I did was put it on the HTC3000 mobile base. The base fits as well as I expected but could use better wheel bearings as this thing is extremely heavy. My 135 lb. self can move it on my own with some hard pushing though. After I got off all the shipping grease I c...

Grizzly G0675 10" Jointer/Planer Combo Review

09-25-2012 05:08 PM by earik | 13 comments »

Hi Everyone, I’ve spent a lot of time reading posts on this site and making use of the many reviews here, and wanted to post my experience with the new Grizzly 10” jointer/planer combo since there are still not a lot of reviews on these yet. I bought this piece of equipment a couple months back without having owned any previous Grizzly tools, and based a lot of my decision on the tons of positive reviews I’ve heard about Grizzly, especially in the customer service departm...

Grizzly G0452Z 6” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead

Grizzly G0452Z 6” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead

07-22-2014 01:45 AM by JerryinCreek | 13 comments »

This is a summary of my experience in purchasing, assembling and using this machine. I began by attempting to place my order on-line, but the choice of lift gate service was not available on the web site. I then called Grizzly and the gentleman who assisted me was going to show me where I missed it. However, I apparently did not miss it, it was not on the web site for this product. The order taker was quite courteous and completed my purchase. I ordered this unit on a Wednesday and was ...
