My Early Christmas Present to Myself

My Early Christmas Present to Myself

219 days ago by Woodbum | 14 comments »

I recently purchased a new Grizzly G0604ZX jointer to replace an old 6” bench top jointer. This is my last upgrade to new tools from my old original shop tools that I have been acquiring since the mid 80’s. I am trying to get all of my major and most of the minor upgrades done before my retirement in 2 years when there will be no more checks coming in every 2 weeks. I wanted the 8” version, but a 76” fence just did not fit in my small shop footprint. Since I picked...

Seeing’s how the previous forum got a little off topic, I started a new one to update on the PJ882 purchase.The original post: “After finally giving up on Delta to turn things around, I decided to purchase the PJ882 model during the Thanksgiving sale promotion. After scouring the internet for recent reviews, I decided to move forward with this purchase as there really were no new positive or negative reviews. I deemed the lack of negative reviews as a good thing.After receiving my joint...

Excellent performance, great value

Excellent performance, great value

So, back in March or so of this year I was shopping for a new jointer to replace an old 6” Delta / Rockwell that was bought and subsequently sold on CL. After using the 6” for a while and learning its capabilities and limitations, I decided I wanted a larger machine. Ultimately, I decided I wanted a 8” jointer with a helical cutter head, as I work a lot with figured maple. Up here in Canada, we don’t have the abundant selection of woodworking machinery that’...

After finally giving up on Delta to turn things around, I decided to purchase the PJ882 model during the Thanksgiving sale promotion. After scouring the internet for recent reviews, I decided to move forward with this purchase as there really were no new positive or negative reviews. I deemed the lack of negative reviews as a good thing. After receiving my jointer 1 week after purchase, I was excited to get it up and running. First came the uncrating. The packaging was adequate as th...

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

While I am writing reviews, I would like to add my name to the long list of Byrd Tool ’s satisfied customers. The date on my blog tells me that I installed this head on my 8 inches Powermatic jointer 445 days ago.

Serious Imperfection

Serious Imperfection

292 days ago 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’...

This past June I was looking at the Grizzly 8” jointers on line when I came across this. It was $200.00 off the original price because it had a paint defect. I thought about it for a week and I called Grizzly on July 1st to see how many they had left. The lady on the phone said six, So I orded one, that very next day Grizzly came out with the 10% codes, I called when I got home from work the next day and I was told sorry there was notihing they could do. This was the 2nd time this past ...

Good jointer for a small workshop

Good jointer for a small workshop

411 days ago by MoshupTrail | 26 comments »

Got this after waiting quite a while for one to come in.I have a 2-car garage and not enough room for a floor-standing jointer. So I had been looking for a good quality jointer that I could use in a small space. Out of the box. Not bad. An awful lot of plastic bags with parts, but once I got started it only took about 1/2 hour to assemble. The directions were pitiful. Perhaps from an older model? I gave up on them quickly. It’s not difficult to figure everything out. Th...

Baileigh Jointer/Planer Review

Baileigh Jointer/Planer Review

443 days ago by Tsmutz | 10 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...

Grizzly 16” G0660X Jointer / Planer Combo

Grizzly 16” G0660X Jointer / Planer Combo

448 days ago by Grovest | 9 comments »

I had difficulty assessing the relative performance of this machine since the machines I have the most experience with are not in the same class (bench-top versus floor machines). The only J/P that I have any hands on experience with has been the Jet JJP-12 and that was limited to a hand on dealer demonstration. The only full size machines I’ve used were those I used nearly 40 years ago in high school and a friend’s old Delta cast iron monsters. Thoughts regarding how this machine compares to...
