Came across a nice 12” jointer last week with a 7’ bed, but I already have a General 8” which I had purchased new. Father of a friend is closing out his cabinet shop.
Price is right I think, does anyone have experience with this model? It has a 4 blade cutterhead, comes with 2 sets of HSS knives, one recently sharpened. Runs very quietly, I planed a 4’ long piece of oak, cuts like butter.
What are your thoughts?
So far I have been able to do pretty much all I need with the 8”, but there have been a few times the 12” would have been a benefit…
I do have adequate power and the room in my shop (I already measured).
Thanks for your input!
