  • I'm excited... should I be?

    I admit, I can be impulsive. However, this seems to be a nice tool. Thoughts? Click image for larger version

      Looks like a Delta clone. Like the 14” Delta band saw, they were copied by everyone, and like the Delta jointer they were sturdy and had little engineering problems. Parts are readily available. Blades are reasonably priced and easy to change and set up. I have the DELTA JT360 Shopmaster 6-Inch 3/4-Horsepower Open Stand Jointer, 115/230-Volt 1 Phase, I Think the going price “used” is $400). I I needed a jointer and everything checks out serviceable I wouldn’t hesitate on this one rather than a benchtop machine.

        I have that Delta model.
        $250 for that Grizz model seems pretty reasonable.

        If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

                Good buy. I recently got a JP0610 which still had factory creosote on the table and fence, for twice as much. But jointers of this quality (both yours and mine) are worth every penny.

                  Seems like a fair price. I had a similar model Delta a while back and was quite happy with it

                    If it is in Ohio and I may be wrong to assume that you are in Colorado (I know, I know, we are not supposed to assume!!! ) - are you going to pick it up or have it shipped? the first thing I thought of was shipping costs.

                      $1/pound.

                      Much cheaper than steak!

                        About 5 years ago (not 5 years and 20 days) - I moved from Durango to West by Gawd.

                        I'm still a thousand feet above insanity, though ----- I sit on a mountain overlooking the Ohio River.

                          A good jointer is a game changer. I also have that same open stand Delta which I picked up for a song (< $100) as an open box when Lowes dumped their stock years back. I upgraded it with a Byrd helical head a few years ago that cost more than the jointer did. Motor is a little challenged but with lighter cuts and adjusted feed rate its is awesome. And no more changing or adjusting knives!

                          That said I am pretty sure I still have the old head with the knife clamps/screws and a bunch of spare 6" knives sitting in the shop somewhere (some may even be sharp). If any of you guys would like them they are yours just let me know.
