I have just acquired an older Jet JJ-6CSX. Is it a Craigslist Gloat? Well that is yet to be determined. However I am quite certain that the description of “Almost New” in the ad wasn’t exactly accurate. But after several weeks of searching and a few days of haggling, I found myself driving 150 miles to trade a shotgun for a jointer. And after 150 miles, I wasn’t eager to return home empty handed. So I took the chance.
What I ended up with was indeed a JJ-6CSX. however it isn’t exactly new. In fact due it’s color scheme places it in the 80’s.
That putrid blue shade is just screaming “Help Me!”. Especially when compared to my other CL find.
And for Xmas, my wife was able to snag another CL find.
From a distance, it looks good. But upon closer inspection there is quite a bit of rust. Let’s start with the rear of the infeed table.
Rear of the Fence.
Rear of the Outfeed Table.
