WOOD magazine review

Smooth adjustments, easy knife changes

Review Summary

We found the handwheel adjustments for the infeed table smooth and precise, and the knives easy to change thanks to this jointer's spring-loaded cutterhead and knife-setting gauge. The JJ-8CS also plowed through hardwoods easily and demonstrated cut quality nearly on par with the test-best Powermatic 60B. It matches Powermatic's 5-year warranty and price tag, but offers the shortest bed in the test, a base-mounted power switch, and no depth-of-cut limiter.
