Does anyone know why the Ridgid JP0610 stationary jointer is no longer available? Is a replacement model in the works?

If I can’t get anything in that price range (~$350) except a bench top jointer, I was thinking of moving up to the Grizzly G0452. I hate to start a discussion about the best 6” jointer but…. anyone care to comment on that choice?

I was going to suggest the 6” Rikon, model 20-100, used to be $360. Then they modified the controls and called it the 20-110 for $450. I just checked and they have all been discontinued in favor of the planer/jointer combo machines. Too bad, I really like my little 20-100.

The 452 is s solid machine and on my list.
Go for the “P” versions and save a few more bucks. It’s the same as the regular one, just purdy polar bear white.

The Ridgid model just seems to have disappeared. Don’t know why as it got good reviews and it is a solid little jointer.

Mine is a couple of years old and I really like it. Too bad it is no longer available. Good machine for its price point.

Looks like maybe they changed the model number

http://www.amazon.com/Ridgid-14668-6-1-Jointer-Planer/dp/B004OEEX88/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1337693826&sr=1-1

Its no longer on the HD website, maybe since they started reselling granite city they dropped these?

i like my ridgid jointer but anybody who pays $700 to buy that jointer from amazon needs to have his head examined!

In case anyone is interested…. I emailed Ridgid and a rep replied that the JP0610 has been discontinued and there are no plans to release a new 6” jointer.

Have your say...
