Topic tags/keywords: jointer measurements size

Hey guys, so what I’m doing is rebuilding some heavy shelving units in my garage, specifically I’m removing the bottom-most shelf of an 8’ section, and raising the center center shelf so I can store a roll-away vaccuum/cyclone cart and (eventually when I can find one in my budget) a jointer underneath.

I’d like to make sure I have the shelf high enough that there’s enough clearance for the jointer, but not so high I’ll have difficulty with the heavier benchtop tools I’ll be storing on it.

Unless I find a good used one at a decent price (seems to be slim pickings around here, no luck so far) I will most likely be getting the Rigid JP0610, seems to be the only jointer that I’ve both heard lots of good things about AND is within my current budget.

If anyone has one, or a similar model and can give me the actual dimensions I would appreciate it greatly! Thanks!

I have the Ridgid JP06000, which looks to be basically the same as the 610 except the base. Can’t imagine it being too much off from this version. I have a restoration project in my profile, if you’d like to see. Exact dimensions from mine are: 46” Width of Bed, 22” Deep, 35” High (37” with my mobile base).

There’s not really any reason to go with the Ridgid jointer in my mind. For about the same price, you can get something with a better base and better dust collection from Grizzly. Alternatively, you could find something used for less than half that price. 6” jointers are pretty common on Craigslist. Avoid the rust bucket junky short bed Craftsman ones, and you’ll find something at $250 that’s a much better value than paying ~$600 new.

The height of my 610 is 38.5”, the mobile base is 1.5” of that. If necessary, the handle and shaft for the fence angle adjustment could be unscrewed/removed and reduce the height about 2”

jonah believe me i’d LOVE to find a good used one, but sadly I’ve been looking for nearly 6 months now an have just had no luck, the few that have been available in my area were either more than i was able to spend at the time or in really bad shape and beyond my restoration skills. Because of work an other things going on I’ve got a limited window I’ll be able to accomplish the projects I have in mind for the spring/summer, and I need a good jointer soon or I’ll have to give up some projects until next year :( Not the end of the world but i REALLLLY wanna get started soon haha

side note, I did take a second look at grizzly, I just saw they have one on sale, and even with freight would be same as the Rigid, specifically the G0813 (certainly not married to the Rigid idea, jus seemed like the best fit in my price range but I will definitely appreciate any recommendations!)

Thanks guys!

If time is a concern, then maybe a cheap jointer is what you need to get started. Sell it later on Craigslist and then go after the fully equipped ones when you have the time and money. Just a thought. I would definitely keep hounding Craigslist and Estate sales. I got my Ridgid for $120, but it was a restoration job.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/WEN-6-Benchtop-Jointer/54486066 – $241 right now, but these prices between walmart and Amazon has been fluctuating insanely as of late.

I can’t imagine that, given your proximity to Chicago and Milwaukee, basically the birthplace of a vast number of woodworking tools, that nothing has shown up in 6 months! A quick search popped up what looks like a pretty nice Delta 37-207 6-inch jointer just outside of Milwaukee with an asking price of $225 (and there are several other really nice old machines that I was drooling over as well!)

Just how seriously have you been looking :-)

Cheers,
Brad
