12” Grizzly G0609X spiral head jointer An LJ friend asked if I could do a review on my 12”spiral head Grizzly jointer. having never reviewed a large piece of machinery before excuse me if I miss details but I’ll give it a go. I have owned my 12” jointer For about a year. When delivered I had lift gate service and a couple of small dollies made by HF rated at 1000 lbs since This jointer is rated at about 1050 lbs. It was packed well in a nice wooden crate and took some time to uncrat...

6" Benchtop Jointer

6" Benchtop Jointer

01-08-2009 05:42 AM 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...

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...

Best Jointer I have ever used.

Best Jointer I have ever used.

11-26-2010 07:50 PM by therookie | 7 comments »

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

Baileigh Jointer/Planer Review

Baileigh Jointer/Planer Review

05-07-2013 08:05 AM by Tsmutz | 12 comments »

Hi guys. I recently bought a Baileigh JP-1686. Since they’re pretty new to the woodworking market, I thought I’d give you a review of this jointer/planer combo machine. For context, I build furniture professionally in Southern California. Most of my work involves wood and metal so my shop is a mix of woodworking and metalworking machines. The Baileigh JP-1686 stood out to me for a couple reasons: my shop is modestly sized so the jointer/planer combo takes up less real estate than 2 separat...
