Serious Imperfection

Serious Imperfection

10-05-2013 10:50 AM by Purrmaster | 44 comments »

This review is for the Harbor Freight (some call it Central Machinery) item #30289. 6” free standing jointer. I’ve had this thing for about 2 years now. It has probably been the most frustrating tool I have but it has also come in handy. This was my first serious woodworking power tool. I’ve read some reviews that said it was basic, but pretty good. I got this because I needed a jointer and it was the only one I could afford. Every other jointer that wasn’...

Best Jointer I have ever used.

Best Jointer I have ever used.

Now this jointer is the best jointer I have ever used, but is also my first. But that is besides the point, the point is the jointer is very quiet and pretty accurate. When is first arrived, I pulled it out of the crate and started assembling it. I went for the manual and started to read about assembly and found out that it went faster figuring out how to asseble it on my own rather than following the directions. Accuracy right out of the crate is OK for getting stuff within a 1/32 of an inch...

Great little Jointer

Great little Jointer

I decided last night that I could not live without a jointer for a gate project I am working on but did not want to spend the money on a larger jointer as my wife just started her own business last year so I did some searching and came across this little guy on sale at sears. Regularly $209 but on sale online for $169.57 right now. got it home and set up was a breeze. It was also easy to get the granite fences nice and true.Within about 45 minutes I was jointing boards and so far it works ...

Good Jointer for the Price

Good Jointer for the Price

10-13-2012 02:26 AM by ErikF | 34 comments »

I needed to upgrade from by benchtop jointer to a stationary unit so I purchased this jointer last week at my local Harbor Freight. I have had some good luck with their power tools and read some good reviews about this specific jointer. The setup took some work due to the terrible owners manual that comes in the box…it has about 6 random pictures along with a few pages of text only instructions. I had to change a few pieces around as I went but managed to get it assembled in a couple ho...

Grizzly G0490X 8" Jointer With Helix Cutter Head

Grizzly G0490X 8" Jointer With Helix Cutter Head

09-02-2015 03:24 AM by Kelly | 21 comments »

GRIZZLY G0490X 8” JOINTER After a year of looking for a good jointer and losing out on three nice ones, due to procrastination, I finally bit the bullet and bought a new Grizzly 8” Jointer with the helix head. The model number is G0490X. The X indicates the jointer is equipped with a helix head. Assembled, the jointer is the heaviest tool in my little shop, weighing about five hundred seventy-five pounds. Now that I’ve ran some highly figured walnut through the ...

Grizzly G0656 8" jointer a good buy.

Late last winter i had a friend who flew down from here in Alaska to the lower 48 to pick up a truck he had purchased. He was driving it back up and was going through Washington so I had him stop by the Grizzly Warehouse to pick up a few things for me. One was the Grizzly G0656 8”x72” jointer with mobile base that they had for $795. When my buddy arrived we backed his truck into the shop and using some pipes and a rope tackled slid the box containing the jointer table (the heav...

Rikon 6" Jointer-Good buy if you can get it for the same price.

Rikon 6" Jointer-Good buy if you can get it for the same price.

09-10-2010 02:01 AM by Brian024 | 14 comments »

After debating for a while on which jointer to get, I decided on this Rikon. This is the first jointer I have owned so I don’t have any other to compare but it is well built compared to the others I have used. When I bought it, Woodcraft had it on clearance for $299, the regular price was $450, I couldn’t pass it up. It comes in 2 separate boxes, base/motor in one and the table/fence in the other, the total shipping weight was around 280 lb’s. The motor comes premounte...

Jointer-Planer Heaven

Jointer-Planer Heaven

01-16-2013 01:30 AM by Beezle | 10 comments »

Or at least that was what I went looking for when I bought an FS-30 jointer-planer in early 2011. This review is after about eighteen months of use. Purchase: there was a chance to buy one at a good price in early 2011, so I went after it and placed an order in March. The machine arrived in good shape in late July. I didn’t expect that long of a delay, but wasn’t really bothered by that. The machine came very well packaged with lots of cardboard on a pallet. There was some d...

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

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
