(based on 1 review)
Great Jointer!
By Doug from Christiana, Tennessee on March 28, 2015
I love the helical head cutter. The cut is smooth and clean. There's sufficient power to handle the 8-inch width. And, this jointer is quieter than my old 6-inch jointer. The jointer came well packed and was easy to assemble using the enclosed instructions. I used a cherry picker (engine hoist) to lift the router table on top of the stand.
The jointer appears to be well made and designed. The helical head is provides a smooth, clean cut. The jointer is quieter than my old 6-inch machine. The 8-inch width is going to make my shop more productive.
The jointer should have included push blocks. I would also have appreciated a built in mobile base.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
