Nice little jointer for a small shop

The service from Max Tool was what was promised. The jointer was delivered on time and in great condition. Set up went smoothly until I got to a few of the screws that needed to be loosened. The heads of the hex screws stripped with pressure on the hex wrench. Luckily I could clamp vice grips on the head and it finally cracked loose. That is, at least, the one for the blade head lock. I never got the top two for the dust collector attachment loose but duct tape fixes everything. Right? I planed 15 5 1/2" x 8' boards and squared one edge before I sent the planed boards through my surface planer. The jointer did a perfect job.

Good small jointer for home shop

The jointer works very good for small projects such as my clock making hobby. Easy to set up.

Love This Jointer!

I used this jointer where I worked before when we ran trim onsite, so I knew the tool before purchase. Minor assembly and it was ready to go. Seemed to be dialed in, so no fuss after assembly. It's light, small and easy to move. Price is great, shipping on time.Nice set of push tools and dust extraction add on included, even 2 allen wrenches for assembly. Variable speed dial is there but I wonder why you wouldn't always leave it on full speed? PC nailed it on this one, look no further!

Great budget jointer.

Sure, I'd like it to come with a stand and the fence and table to be 2 or 3 feet longer like the jointers costing 10+ times more, but this is a great unit with almost entirely metal construction. If you are just getting started out, a hobbyist, or running a smaller shop, I would recommend this. I use it to square up lumber when building guitars. I use this in conjunction with a thickness planer.
