I received and installed the new knives and what a difference it made. I think this $100 jointer will do whatever I need for a long time.

I also mocked up a dust collector that seems to get about 95% of the chips. It seems that the end packs with chips quickly and no more come through so I think I’ll leave it alone.

Someone in an earlier reply cautioned against enclosing the base because of motor cooling. I don’t know why it would be any more of a problem with this jointer than with the many that come mounted on an enclosed cabinet, especially with all the air movement created by the 4” vacuum.

Thanks to everyone for their helpful suggestions.
