According to Jet’s website and Woodcraft is looks like they may have introduced a new version of their 8” wedgebed jointer (JWJ-8xx)? I can’t readily tell if its just a new paint job and power switch of if there are more significant changes. Has anyone else looked at this new model’s specs?

Looks like the same old jointer design that we’ve seen for years. No parallelogram beds, and no helical cutterhead… two of the things I look for. At least it has the 8” width capacity.

Yep, looks exactly like the one I bought in 1999.i Do notice the tables are 72”, mine are 66”; that’s(72”) a good thing.
