OK so here is the question
I have a 6" jointer with 1.2m long tables...all works well and I have
regularly jointed boards up to 2.4m. The machine does what it is
I have an option on an old EMCO 8" jointer/thicnesser combo that a
friend has gathering dust, and the planer is something I would
regualry make use of. So I am not sure I want both machines in my
small workshop. So I am keen to sell the 6"
The downside of the old EMCO 8"machine is that the tables on the
jointer are quite short (total table length around 85cm), making it
harder to joint long boards. What is the feasability of extending the
I have access to a large machine shop so I could conceivably weld
something up out of 6mm steel and then have it surface ground and then
bolt it onto the current table...
What do you folk think?
