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 ...

Bought this a couple of months ago, and I’m not sorry I did. For most of my projects, the capacity of this jointer is perfect. Plus I doesn’t take up to much space with the 4 foot bed( Important for a small shop). First let me tell you this thing was set to the tee right from the factory. The bed and fence are dead flat with out the slightest hint of twist. The angles on the fence postive stops are dead to rights. I checked to make sure the knives were set right, and they were pe...

Grizzly G0656 8" JOINTER 3HP W/ MOBILE BASE

Grizzly G0656 8" JOINTER 3HP W/ MOBILE BASE

03-17-2008 02:48 AM by DaveH | 14 comments »

Just finished assembly and initial testing of my new jointer. My initial reaction is very positive. All parts required for assembly were present and accounted for and nothing was damaged. The assembly took about 4 hours. I just followed the instructions included and everything went together and the fit was good. Overall quality is good. The in feed and out feed tables are flat and aligned as well as the fence. Test cuts were good. I looked at Jet, Delta and Powermatic before ordering ...

Maybe it's just me but I don't like this one

Maybe it's just me but I don't like this one

Bought this 6” Delta benchtop jointer a few months ago for my shop. I choose the benchtop version because of limited space and the fact that most of my projects are small, boxes, clocks, etc. I think that I have made a mistake on this one, I have had several problems with it. The first thing I noticed was that the outfeed table had a dip on the end farthest from the blades. I brought it to the authorized factory repair center and they replaced the outfeed table. Since then, I have ...

Grizzly G0675 10" Jointer/Planer Combo Review

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...

Delta Portable Jointer - so so even at $40 and with modification

Delta Portable Jointer - so so even at $40 and with modification

07-16-2010 03:44 AM by AaronK | 10 comments »

Bought it used off craigslist for $40. I spent about 4 hours on it getting it to what is its most usable form without major modification. I work slow, but figure you’ll probably have to spend at least half that time if you have the same problems I did…. and the other two reviewers here on LJ did too. Here’s what needed to be done: 1. shim infeed table to be coplanar with outfeed. Fortunately the tables are not warped, as far as I can tell. 2. adjust the blades to be level...

JET JJP-12HH, 2-month review

JET JJP-12HH, 2-month review

01-21-2011 11:33 PM by mstenner | 17 comments »

After two months with the JJP-12HH, I’m ready to share what I’ve learned. The bottom line: this is a great tool and I’d recommend it for the serious amateur. I wanted a lot of capability in my small (12×15) shop and am very happy. Shipping & Unpacking This is a large and heavy tool (my wife says I’m no longer the “biggest tool in the shop”), and it comes almost fully assembled. You will need to get the crate where it’s going intact. ...

Inca Model 570 Jointer/Planer

Inca Model 570 Jointer/Planer

01-14-2013 01:21 AM by elingeniero | 8 comments »

I ended up getting an Inca model 570 (343.190.03) in reasonable condition. This is a machine that hasn’t been made in over a decade, and so if you buy one it will be well used. Even so, working units are worth buying. The design and execution of Inca machines is a pinnacle of modern industrial design, and there are a lot of people that feel about their Inca gear the way Apple fans feel about their electronic goodies. The design of the Inca J/P goes in the opposite direction from...

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 ...

Another Jet 10" jointer/planer combo review

Another Jet 10" jointer/planer combo review

02-08-2012 12:35 AM by Eric | 7 comments »

Having a large hunk of white oak cut up roughly (chainsaw!) and dried, and beaten up by taking a good hour on one piece jointing with hand planes, I finally took the plunge with the Jet 10” combo. I have a small non-garage shop, so both space and charge card were important! Since others have reviewed the machine here and on other sites, I just want to add my thoughts if you are considering the purchase.First, as others have said, set up is a snap, tables well-enough co-planer out of t...
