Hello, I purchased a Ridgid JP0610 jointer today. Seems to be a good buy. No rust, in decent shape, and seems to cut well. My question is does anyone own one of these or have any past experiences with them? Just want to know the history on this machine and how well its held up over the years. Thanks!

It’s a pretty good machine.
How much did you pay?

I picked one up for $150 and it is far better than the Delta bench top I had before that, my only complaint would be it tends to let the shavings get clogged up, but I only have a shopvac with a dust deputy, if you have 4” it should work fine, I am certainly happy with mine.

Not too bad. I got mine NIB @ HD for $150 as it was “missing parts”. Turns out it was only missing the little yellow safety key insert. When wood magazine last tested 6” jointers, the ridged was rated a best value.

It’s pretty much the same tool as the older Grizzly 1182, Jet, GI, Sunhill, Woodtek, Bridgewood, etc…..all very well proven. My 1182 was new in 2001, and hasn’t hiccupped once.

Thanks for all the feedback. I messed around with the thing last night, and noticed a lot of tearout at the end of the board. I adjusted the outfeed table and it seemed to make it better. I think it needs some adjusting.

I have used that jointer now for 2 years. excellent product. Never an issue. Excellent dust collection even with a Oneida and Fein shop vac setup. Keep that tables treated so you don`t get rust and I wax mine after a long day of use. I installed mine on a HTC 2000 to move around the garage. I use a OneWay multi tool for setup and I find that to be the best tool for setting knives and outfeed table. Since I am in no hurry when I machine a surface, I always take lots of small cuts and end up with very nice flat clean cuts. Great buy, enjoy
