Martin T54 Jointer

Martin T54 Jointer

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 ...

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 ...

Jet JJP-12 Planer/Jointer combo (Jointer mode)

Here are several pictures of the Jet JJP-12 jointer/planer combo machine in Jointer mode. I picked up the crated machine with a small flatbed trailer. 3 of us (myself, my 14 year old neighbor, and my 115 lb wife) were able to slide it off of the trailer, then off the palate and onto the mobile base easily, despite the machine weighing over 500 Lbs. It came almost fully assembled in the crate. Only had to install the portion of the guard over the blades, a plug on the end of the cord, and ...

Everything We hoped for and more

Everything We hoped for and more

When we were looking at a jointer we wanted to get one that would be able to handle all of our woodworking aspirations for many years to come. We compared 4 different 8” Jointers side by side and decided that since we had the money we might as well get this one, since it ended up on top of our list when comparing the following things: Type & Number of KnivesCuts per MinuteMotorBeltsMagnetic Power SwitchPedestal Mounted SwitchTotal Bed LengthInfeed Table LengthTable AdjustmentFence S...

Steel City 6" Industrial Parallelogram Jointer

Steel City 6" Industrial Parallelogram Jointer

03-26-2008 08:46 PM by Greg3G | 16 comments »

I purchased this at the March Woodworking Show in Chantilly, VA. I had been looking for a jointer for some time. At one point this was listed for $999 but since they have decided to drop this from their line, I picked it up for $499 with an extra set of knives thrown in the deal. The equipment was picked up at the show (Skarie was the distributer) and came in two boxes. One is the cabinet the other the jointer bed assembly. The boxes showed no damage so I felt fairly certain that everythin...

Grizzly G0656 8" JOINTER 3HP W/ MOBILE BASE

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 ...

Good Quality Jointer/Planer Blades

Good Quality Jointer/Planer Blades

03-08-2008 04:32 PM by tenontim | 8 comments »

I use my planer and jointer constantly and I try to keep a sharp set of blades in each one. A couple of years ago I found Global Tooling, http://globaltooling.bizhosting.com/index.html on the internet, and couldn’t believe the prices they got for their blades. I thought that even if they were just throw aways, it would be worth the test run. “Knives are made from T1-High Speed Steel (18% Tungsten steel), 63 Rc hardened and finish ground to super sharp edge. Also offered Carbide ...

One square, two square...

One square, two square...

03-01-2008 03:04 AM by Bill Butler | 13 comments »

...on your way to four-square, this jointer just can’t be beat. I wasn’t looking for high end professional quality in a jointer, and I wanted something more than a benchtop unit. I came across this jointer available at your local HD for $399. I decided to buy it based on the predominance of 4 and 5 star reviews at their site. The unit is easy to assemble, however you should definitely have two bodies to handle delivery, and physical assembly. (I can pickup my DeWalt 735 p...

Powermatic 54A 6" Jointer

Powermatic 54A 6" Jointer

I bought this jointer about a year ago as I was building a kitchen table. It has been great! It is very heavy which helps eliminate any vibration. I also bought the mobile base that goes with it – necessary for a small shop like mine. I have run alot of hard maple and red & white oak through the jointer with no problems at all. It is very powerful and does not bog down whith the largest beams run through it. The extra long beds are awesome! They make jointing long boards so much eas...
