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...

Review of DELTA X5 6" Professional Jointer

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...

New Jointer

New Jointer

Got me a new DJ-20 to replace my 6” Ridgid. To me it’s a small aircraft carrier.I’ve not had much luck with Delta tools the last few years but decided to go with a Delta again over a General and King.Out of the 2 crates the tables were flat and in line with each other and the fence was perfect.Paint job isn’t the greatest but if the above points are perfect it’s a fabs item. If I could I’d give it 4.5 starsGreat price too at $1499 Cdn -PLUS I get to choose...

Great Idea but Poor Design

Great Idea but Poor Design

I read reviews on this machine on multiple sites before I decided to purchase and came to the conclusion that it would serve me well. I had what I thought to be realistic expectations from this machine. I had expected a machine that would work well for boards up to 5, maybe 6 feet long. I expected it to be under powered, but usable. Many reviews spoke of the difficulty of getting the jointer tables coplanar. I planned on setting the jointer to take a 1/16” cut and leave it there all the...

Grizzly 8" jointer -- first impressions

Grizzly 8" jointer -- first impressions

1133 days ago by glassyeyes | 12 comments »

I purchased the Grizzly G0656 helical head 8” jointer on June 11, and received it a few days ago. I have assembled it and tested it, and feel it is a good—though not perfect—tool. My rating also takes into account that this is very reasonably priced for an 8” helical head jointer; I would expect a little better fit and finish, with fewer issues, on a higher-priced machine. PICTURES: Plenty of pictures are available online: I included these to show a simple way to...

Grizzly G0675 10" Jointer/Planer Combo Review

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...

Delta 1950's 4" Jointer - Rebuild

Delta 1950's 4" Jointer - Rebuild

2373 days ago by Gary Ratajczak | 11 comments »

I thought I would post a review of a “vintage” tool I refurbished a few months back. I currently have a small shop, and was looking at bechtop jointers. Happened to mention my search at the office, and one of the guys indicated he had an old jointer that he was no longer using. After $50.00, and his help to lift it into my truck, I was off on a re-furb project. As the price of new tools continues to rise, along with the cost of fuel and food, I think there is more opport...

Powermatic 54A 6” Jointer

Powermatic 54A 6” Jointer

Jointer Overview: I decided to purchase a jointer for my home workshop. I did a LOT of online research and talked to as many local folks as I could trying to make sure I made the best purchase. I considered the value of Gizzly, the somewhat less expensive Jet models available, looked for quality OLD jointers to restore, plus a dozen more possibilities. I wanted an 8” model but couldn’t quite swing it. In the end it came down to a four-day 15% off sale on Jet and Powermatic at my local Wood...

A Love/Hate Relationship

Ahh spring! That time of year when a young man’s thoughts turn to one thing…and since this is not the forum for that topic…let’s talk tools. Officially, I think this silly little woodworking hobby of mine has morphed into a full blown obsession. In fact, if I ever sell my home, the listing will probably read “Beautiful, three bedroom, two bath home with a Five-tool garage”. While I haven’t reached the absolute low of selling myself for money to feed my tool addiction, I have taken the ...
