Topic tags/keywords: jointer

Im looking to buy my first jointer and have come across the shop fox T23046. It has the marks of the W1755, but the price is 470 shipped. Are these the same, and if so is this a good jointer for the money?

i have this one http://www.woodstockint.com/Products/w1684/ maby i got a lemon but the paint on the one i got is chipped off in several spots and the vertical fence has an 1/8 bow in it. i called the store i got it from and they basically told me thats just what you get sometimes and a bowed fence wont affect how it works so tough luck … i plan to go down there and have a chat with them in person about it … other than that the machine is pretty quiet and cuts nice i think i just got sold a lemon. they also sold me a shop fox 10” table saw that had a 1/64 wobble in the arbor.. i think its time for a new vender.
