I have this jointer and got it for $249 about a year ago at my local Home Depot. Set up was easy and alignment was spot on out of the box. I built a mobile base for mine as the table was too low for my comfort and needed some portability.

They are probably clearing inventory so I wouldn’t wait to long to pull the trigger.

Good Luck!

The fence alignment and adjustment is a major improvement over the cam action version sold on most units, if you’re settled on a 6” unit in my opinion this is one of the better options at entry level.

Have your say...
