Last month I went to the Sears ‘clearance’ section and I got a 4 1/8” jointer/planer….for $40.(it normally sold for 250) So far it works like a champ.. the biggest issue I have found, is I cannot find 4” blades in my city. So, I will either have to buy 6” and cut them down, or order them offline~~

Looks just like my King-Seely Craftsman from the 1930s. That’ll clean up nicely.

dust4tears: Freud sells 4 1/8” jointer knives, available online, for $15 or so.

many centuries ago I had the privilege of meeting a man who owned that tool

he was inspirational in teaching me

that I knew nothing

: ))

i think of him every time I see that microscopic jointer and all the “naysayers” who say you need this and that, to make this and that, with every excuse why u cant build something nice cuz you dont have “it”…… a big ass jointer……. BS.

i would have never believed such a small footprint could have changed my world so much.

Thanks for posting that

MonteCrisco no need for W40 it’s all nice and clean and very heavy for the size no aluminum.
