Porter-Cable PC160JT 6'' VS Jointer

Porter-Cable PC160JT 6'' VS Jointer

06-22-2017 07:41 PM by CalOrgill | 1 comment »

The service from Max Tool was what was promised. The jointer was delivered on time and in great condition. I was building like this chair as well products Set up went smoothly until I got to a few of the screws that needed to be loosened. The heads of the hex screws stripped with pressure on the hex wrench. Luckily I could clamp vice grips on the head and it finally cracked loose. That is, at least, the one for the blade head lock. I never got the top two for the dust collector attachment loo...

Sweet jointer at a very nice price

Sweet jointer at a very nice price

I already own Cutech’s bench top planer and like it a lot. Now that I have the space for it, it was time for a jointer and having liked the spiral cutterhead for the planer, why not for the jointer too? I had an issue with some of the cast pieces that was resolved after some email back and forth with Mike from Cutech, who was super helpful. He mailed me replacement parts and they worked very well. The jointer works great and comes with a nice set of pushpads. Best of all for me...

Scorpion 12" Helical JOINTER/PLANER

Scorpion 12" Helical JOINTER/PLANER

05-05-2017 06:50 AM by Andre | 20 comments »

Just a quick review to let state my personal opinion, anybody interested in the spec’s can look them up.The basic’s are it is a 12” (Helical head made by Stinger) jointer planer combo machine that excels in the jointer department and really planes very acceptable, the conversion is a hassle. Procedure is easy and fast enough just a pain to switch the Dust Collection over. I do not use the planer function all that often so the gain in shop floor space more than makes up ...

As good as I hoped

As good as I hoped

A former coworker set up a garage shop when he retired and decked it out with very nice Powermatic tools all purchased as a package deal. Now, 8 years later, his health has failed and he’s selling his house and liquidating his shop. I was really happy when he called to give me first dibs, and purchased this jointer for a VERY good price. All of his tools were lightly used and in very good condition. I had to break down the machine to get it down my basement steps, and is just got...

I love this jointer

I love this Grizzly Jointer. I have a small shop and the size of this machine is perfect. The spiral cutter – head is worth every penny. I gave 4 stars because, I requested the lift gate service. UPS Freight called me and scheduled an appointment at their convenience for delivery. I scheduled time off work to make the appointment time UPS Freight requested and then UPS Freight blew me off. No call, no notification, no call to reschedule, nothing. UPS freight never showed up. ...

Jointer	Grizzly G0490XW

Jointer Grizzly G0490XW

11-27-2016 02:06 PM by dannmarks | 7 comments »

I purchased the G0490XW. I ordered the one that I wanted and waited for to come in: it was on back order. Came in about mid November 2016. Yes it has the spiral head and mine worked first time just fine. Still tuning in some stuff. I probably still have a little to learn about it yet. However, my boards come out very flat and the edges are very square. Took a while to get it square. I mean really square. So gluing up produces nice flat work. It does exactly what a jointer is suppose...

It eventually turned out well, but what a pain

It eventually turned out well, but what a pain

I recently decided I wanted to upgrade my 6” Jet jointer. I had gotten tired of cutting board and re-gluing them, and the beds just weren’t long enough. I had upgraded the straight knives on my Jet to a Byrd head a few years back and knew I wanted a segmented head. I did a bit of research and decided it was worth going for the parallelogram beds; hopefully if I bought a new machine I wouldn’t have to adjust it, but shimming dovetail ways is a whole lot harder then adjus...

Grizzly Branded Byrd Shelix Cutter Head for the G0452P

Grizzly Branded Byrd Shelix Cutter Head for the G0452P

09-15-2016 11:45 AM by Matt | 11 comments »

I got some tiny nic’s in the blades on my Grizzly G0452 Jointer and figured with these being on sale (4/2016) at Grizzly, why not avoid the hassle of the getting new knives and having to get them set correctly and all that trouble again. It arrives packaged as seen, in great shape, and I’d be very impressed if the shippers were able to damage this in shipping. Installation was a little tough – pulling the bearings off the old jointer head required a pulley puller/extracto...

A nice tool (also sold under the Baileigh Industrial brand)

A nice tool (also sold under the Baileigh Industrial brand)

I was using a sled with my planer and the results were okay, but with large stock, it was too un-wieldly and dangerous, so when I received a nice bonus at work this past spring, I purchased this jointer. I would have preferred the 12”, but the bonus wasn’t that nice. I had to run 220v to the garage so that was almost an extra grand. I also had 20amp 110v line put in as the garage only had one 15amp outlet so I had been tapping into the garage door opener outlets as well. ...

New Jointer

New Jointer

07-07-2016 12:10 PM by TigerTed | 14 comments »

Jointer was delivered into my garage 5 days after ordering. That included the weekend and 4th of July holiday. I did pay for the lift gate service. Packaging was very good and in great shape. Broke down easy for recycling. Assembly was very straight forward. I did start off using jacks and jack stands to get top close to installed height. Turned out to be waste of time. Friend and myself easily picked up the top to put on the stand. Table checks with a 3’ Starrett showed the ...
