WOOD magazine review

No frills, just good and accurate

Review Summary

It took only 23 minutes to assemble this no-frills jointer. The cut quality was among the best out of ten similar units tested, in spite of a slight power drop-off when making deep cuts. Its front-mounted handwheels showed no backlash and proved accurate and easy to use. We’d prefer a longer bed and a pedestal-mounted power switch if we could get them.
