WOOD magazine review

Great cut quality and power

Review Summary

This jointer has been replaced by Delta's model 37-365X, which sells for about $1,900. Excellent cut quality and power made the 37-350A one of the top contenders in our test of eight 8" jointers. Its 43-1/2" long infeed table provides great support for long boards, while keeping the overall bed length manageable at a little more than 72".
The trade-off for this, though, is only about 31" of support on the outfeed end—you'll need a roller stand or other additional support for those same long boards. We'd rather have equal-length tables. Generally, we'd prefer the accuracy of handwheels for table-height adjustments, but the 37-350A's infeed table moved smoothly enough to make precise adjustments with its lever. On our wish list for this jointer: a depth-of-cut limiter and magnetic power switch. Both would make the machine safer.
