I am making the transition for working exclusively with S4S pine to a variety of hardwoods and I am trying to decide if I should buy a factory refurbished Porter Cable 6” jointer for $220. I don’t plan to use it for anything other than smaller projects and I’m a weekend woodworker. Would this be generally suitable? I know that it won’t compare to free-standing or helical head jointers, but would I regret the purchase? Anybody have personal experience with this or this and other jointers?
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
