Can anyone tell me anything about the Steel City 40625, 6” jointer? I can’t seem to find any reviews on them anywhere. One has popped up in the local Craigslist, new in the crate but with no warrantee, and I am interested if it is a good machine.

I have a Steel City 12” jointer. It’s basically a newer version of Delta’s old DJ-30. When Delta did one of their many self-destructions, a lot of their guys went to work for a new company called Steel City. Odds are this 6” is an OK jointer. It won’t be great but it should be better than junk. Look at how long the bed is, how many knives there are on the head, how powerful the motor is . . . I would use the cost of a new Grizzly 6” as a starting point for what a guy should be willing to pay . . .

I have a friend who has one. Other than it chewing up 2 of his fingers, it’s a great machine.

Have your say...
