I just received my new machine today. Must have had a rough trip, one of the bolts holding the tables to the plywood box were bent. Some other minor damage to the plywood, but the machine was fine. Itâ€™s a beautiful machine. I like the fact that all the fasteners are bolts, not screws or plastic. I like how the switch console was bolted inside the cabinet for safe shipping instead of being packaged in cardboard. The machining on the infeed and outfeed tables is superb, I almost hated to push wood across it. This baby is heavy; I used my tractor to lift it out of the box and onto the cabinet. I choose the spiral cutterhead and it is wonderful, such quality that Iâ€™m amazed that I could afford this machine. I checked every insert, everyone was properly installed and tight. After assembly I checked the tables and they were very close. I adjusted the outfeed table .012 and adjusted the scale on the infeed table. The serpentine belt is quiet. This machine is much quieter than my old 6 inch jointer, and smoother too. I am very pleased with this purchase.
As i was shopping for jointers, a question lingered in my mind, "whats the difference-other than paint color, between this jointer for $1350, and one costing $3000?" Well, as if i wasn't confused before, i certainly am now! I am really impressed with this machine. I really can't imagine getting anything more out of this, it leaves little/nothing to be desired! How other companies are selling 8in jointers for $3000+ i'll never understand. The ONLY "knock" that i can give it is in the fence. I'm not crazy about the 45 and 135 degree adjustments. You kind of have to lift the fence off the table and adjust it. its not very controlled or "fluid". With that being said, in the 10 years of woodworking, i have never used a jointer to create a bevel; so many other tools that are more efficient for that particular operation. I have however, created rabbits on a jointer, and this works great for that tasks. In the end, i really like this product and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
