Quality


Overall though, the quality of the product will provide me with a lifetime of use and accomplish exactly what i wanted it to do.


Highest quality jointer in this price range.


It's just bad design and impossible to get flush with the otherwise perfect fence.


Blades were in sync with the outfeed table and needed no adjustment/fine tuning.


I probably would have spent the extra cash and gone with the powermatic.

Price


Not 5 stars cause i really wanted the helix head and the price went down considerably right after i bought it after waiting thr...  Read More


The struggle was the cost verses the utility.

Shipping


Clear instructions, no missing parts, no damage in shipping.


Shipping was also quick and very hassle free.


Delivery was a breeze and there were no shipping charges.


I have to say amazon was very accommodating and gave me no problem on the return with the shipping company coming right out and...  Read More

Packaging/appearance


Packaging was absolutely perfect (best i have seen for a heavy, stationary tool).


Packaging was excellent and assembly was easy although it is best to have a friend to help set the unit on the base.


The packaging is substantial, and nothing was damaged or missing.


Most adjustments were fine out of the box except the outfeed and even that was pretty close.

Competitiveness


Jet is owned by wmh group and they own powermatic as well.


The longbed tables allow jointing of longer boards without tipping and the dust port allows me to hookup a shopvac.


The manual does not do a great job of explaining how to operate --and adjust the infeed or outfeed tables.


After running 5, 10ft boards through it, hardly a speck of anything anywhere.

    I would probably have given it a 5 star rating if the first had not almost maimed me.

    The manual stated that all the knives had been adjusted and set at the factory so i took them at their word.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    However, it was another 6 weeks before i could get the money for the first one refunded and the replacement one back in my shop.

    Face jointing a 1/16 from 6 piece of maple, the motor seemed to have no difficulty.

    I probably would have spent the extra cash and gone with the powermatic.

    I am not sure yet what it's purpose is, but if the wood is a little bent, the leading edge can snag on that tiny edge.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    One of the keys to nice planing is a smooth consistent motion across the blades, so the snag is a small problem.
