Description

The oversized fence on this 6" jointer provides tremendous control for edge-jointing wider boards. The fine-adjust handwheel dials in the outfeed table relative to the cutterhead top dead center and the lever adjusted infeed table provides quick and accurate infeed table movement. Top it all off with a built-in mobile base, and you've got a jointer that has it all!

WOOD magazine review

Mobile base, but needs power boost

Review Summary

With a long, tall fence with two handles, pedestal-mounted power switch, smooth fence and table adjustments, and a built-in mobile base, you’d think this jointer has it all. But it lacks power, and we had to force the fence to its back-most position to get a full 6"-wide cut. Jointed surfaces also require more sanding than most others in the 10-jointer test.
