I'm considering purchasing a 6" benchtop jointer. Space is an issue in
my shop, as is money. I know these things are not any good for long or
wide stock, but I do a lot of small work (boxes, frames, etc) so I'm
thinking that one of these machines might be adequate for the smaller
stock I'm usually working with.
The three possibilities I'm looking at are the Delta and the Shop Fox,
which can be seen on the following page:
and the Woodtek here:
To me, the Shop Fox actually looks like the best machine, although there
don't seem to be many dealers and I worry about parts and service
Does anybody have any experience/recommendations with these or any other
brands I've not looked at? Or are these things just toys I'll be sorry I
wasted money on? Keep in mind I'm just a hobbyist, but I don't want to
buy something totally useless either.
