UPS freight showed up today and dropped off my new jointer and bandsaw. No shipping damage that I can tell the shipping crates were fine. I got the bandsaw uncrated and onto the Shopfox mobile base, it was packed quite well as you can see below in the pics. I think the mobile base needs bigger foot pads for stability, I’ll hit McMasterCarr and see what they have. The jointer wow its huge, just the infeed table seems as big as my last jointer. Unboxing and assembly to continue tomorrow. I guess I’ll start a review for each of these as I unpack and assemble.

FUN! I hope you have some help – that jointer looks HUGE and HEAVY! I could barely lift my 6” Grizzly jointer from the crate myself.

The jointer will be no problem, my tractor will lift it without breaking a sweat.

Have your say...
