Our local borg had the Ridgid JP0610 on sale for $299. This one seems
to be the old grey models (US made Emerson I believe). Looking back at
the old wreck postings and every other source I can put my hands on,
it seems to be a decent jointer. Any thoughts? Damned good price. I
know, there are loyalists for every brand. Has anyone heard anything
bad about this jointer?

as well as any other 6" jointer with an approximately 4 long bed.
Jointers aren't exactly rocket science, and mine is plenty straight
Done! Actually, went back for it. It was the floor model. No
instructions (printing from Ridgid's web site as I type this). Also,
no angle gauge (I think I can find a 90 and 45 degree angle gauge
somewhere) and no push blocks.
I negotiated for another 15% off bringing the $449 jointer down to
$254 plus tax.
Now I clean it up and start making saw dust! Should I retitle this as
Way to go Chip! You'll like it I'm sure. Let me know if you don't get the
manual printed or anything and I'll copy mine and send it to you. As far as
the angle gauge goes, you got it going on with a try square. Push blocks are
cheap at Sears. Have fun, make much dust!
