Martin T54 Jointer

Martin T54 Jointer

2184 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 ...

I like it but need to learn its quirks.

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...

My New Delta 6" jointer

My New Delta 6" jointer

1522 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...

Used Jet JJ-6CS jointer, seems to be a bargain

Used Jet JJ-6CS jointer, seems to be a bargain

1284 days ago by ic3ss | 9 comments »

I picked this up from a Craigslist ad recently for $200. SCORE!! I wanted the CSX with 1 hp motor, but this one will do. And with this being about half the going price for a newer CSX, I can put that money towards some chisels or a shoulder plane. Looks like it’s seen some action, I had to clean a bunch of surface rust from the fence and tables. A thorough cleaning did wonders, and now I need to pull the knives and get them sharpened. Everything seems to work fine, even the bearings are...

Inca Model 570 Jointer/Planer

Inca Model 570 Jointer/Planer

592 days ago 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...

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

2374 days ago by John Gray | 6 comments »

This is another tool that I’ve had for about a year. It does a beautiful job jointing and it comes with 2 push pads ( Grizzly calls them safety blocks) as standard equipment. The built in mobile base is a God send in my shop as I like to have all of my large power tools on wheels, I use them outside weather permitting. It’s 4” dust chute is very efficient. There’s not to much else to say except that I would highly recommend one to anyone looking for a 6” jointer

6" Benchtop Jointer

6" Benchtop Jointer

2059 days ago by rwyoung | 15 comments »

I decided that I would like to have a 6” jointer for my garage shop. The combination of limited working space and the size of my expected projects pointed me to a benchtop jointer. Depending on what review you read, most of the models in this class are limited to 3 ft or 4 ft workpieces. That length limitation was not an issue for me as most of my projects in the queue are cabinets and small furniture. I received the unit in good order and the packaging was quite well done with tw...

My Nightmare with Laguan Tools

My Nightmare with Laguan Tools

1563 days ago by Caleb James | 39 comments »

I recently purchased a 16” jointer planer combo and 18” 3000 Series Bandsaw from Laguna Tools. It has turned into my worst nightmare. I have spent $6,245.83 on this order. It arrived damaged and I properly noted it on the freight bill. I contacted laguna about the most obvious damage to the band saw. The upper flywheel had come apart in shipping. I rebuilt it and it seems to work fine now. My nightmare starts really with the jointer. In short this machine should edge join using the fence, ...
