Alright another question.
I want to add a joiner to my arsenal sometime soon. I am thinking a
6"x40 something. I was wondering if you guys could contribute some
suggestions as to great joiners in that size range. I am into buying
tools once, but also like value. Anyone had problems with the big names
Jet, Powermatic, Delta, any rave reviews after several years of the
less known brands?
Thanks in advance
I am very please with the Yorkcraft (sold by Wilke machines out of PA)
The machine is exactly the same as the Delta closed based 6" jointer
(call and ask the salesperson and they will tell you that they ship
from the same factory) only the Delta sells for $200 more. I don't
have the link handy but search the above names and you will find it.
The 6" model sells for $339, and I consider it the best bargain of any
of my bigger machines.
They all work well, at least those you mention. I like and own the
Powermaric for its longer bed. It gets great reviews for a 6 inch
jointer. It is not cheap, but it works flawlessly and with the long bed
can handle bigger jobs. The bed also increases the weight, increasing
stability and smoothness
