Review

This model has been discontinued by Craftsman. The Craftsman 21703 displayed power equal to the most robust machines in our test of eight 8" jointers, but its straight-knife cutterhead left a su
rface not as smooth as other straight-knife-equipped jointers. This machine provides one of the longest fences in the test, large handwheels for table adjustments, and a built-in "docking stand" to store push blocks. However, we found the base-mount power switch's safety cover annoying. All told, the 21703 is a decent jointer at a premium price.
