 Laguna 12" Jointer - Outstanding

Laguna 12" Jointer - Outstanding

05-24-2019 08:44 PM by BGGigHarbor | 2 comments »

After 2 months of significant use, my assessment is this jointer is OUTSTANDING! I am incredibly pleased. It’s an awesome beast of a jointer and is a pleasure to use. I’ve spent nearly 3 years researching and testing out every 8” jointer I could lay my hands on. I’ve used 12” & 16” jointers (thanks to a woodworking club a few hours away) and even some European models. But never could I find this one to test out. I’ve visited the regional authorized repair center that works on various manu...

Unboxing Grizzly Jointer

Unboxing Grizzly Jointer

03-14-2019 04:55 PM by jywagner | 8 comments »

I sold my grizzly 6? jointer recently. I have been researching and planning for my upgrade to an 8? or 12” model ever since. But not a lot of G0495X or other 12” jointer review out there, found a few very similar 8” jointer from Baileigh, Laguna, and Powermatic, all these three jointers identical in design. Plus, cost quite much more than G0495X. Why I chose Grizzly 495X with spiral cutter head. I chose the Grizzly 495X because I can only afford this model at this price, possibly deliver b...

Jet 6"  joiner

Jet 6" joiner

11-13-2018 10:59 AM by DougZ | 5 comments »

I purchased this joiner new in 2016 and like the 8’ version it came in two boxes. Although I did not have to mess with the motor or electric as you explained. Two people are needed to properly and safely assemble the unit. Take your time as there are many steps. Once completed the unit works flawlessly. It has a 4” dust port and soft wood produce bigger chips than hard woods. I am a Jet guy and have several pieces off this brand in my shop. Safety is always necessary in bo...

Last Spring I sold my General 6” Jointer and my Williams & Hussey molder/planer with the intention of buying the Rikon 12” Jointer/Planer Combo. Then, looking at a heavy summer travel schedule I decided to put the purchase off till the Fall. When I finally went to execute the purchase, in early Oct., I discovered that the $2700 price had leapt to $3600 with the addition of $900 in tariffs. The Jet had gone to $4200. I balked and spent a month or so hand planing poplar for ...

Craiglist Find

Craiglist Find

10-08-2018 12:48 PM by mikewalt | 7 comments »

Picked this up off craiglist, my best guess is its a 37-220, serial# 70-1635, but its hard to tell for sure. Had to order new bearings for it, as one was frozen.A well made tools for its age, and even after sitting in poor condition was easily dissembled and reassembled. All parts were were made with quality materials, as you can see the brass block that lubricated the screw drives.This is a good tool for a small project worker. It dosn’t take much space and with the 6” wide bla...

Baileigh and Elite Metal Tools Customer Service

Baileigh and Elite Metal Tools Customer Service

UPDATE: I’ve spent the last few days working with Shane from Baileigh (who is on this forum) and he’s gone above and beyond for me. Baileigh, after seeing all my photos and in speaking a few times, has agreed to completely replace the machine. I could not be happier with this outcome and I can’t speak any more highly of Shane and Baileigh in this whole situation. They stepped up and took care of me and I’m forever grateful for it. 5 stars for Baileigh, 0 stars for E...

Cutech benchtop 8 " jointer

Cutech benchtop 8 " jointer

07-07-2018 12:03 PM by michelletwo | 13 comments »

I was in the market for an 8” jointer and have read great reviews for this . When they had free shipping over the holiday, I ordered one. For over 30 yrs I have used a 6” delta with knives and I got very tired of sharpening them, and resetting. A real pain. I need to make space in my shop so this small jointer seemed a good fit. 1. the ordering on the site was simple and easy2. the package shipped UPS and was very well packed. The jointer was totally surrounded by form fitting ...

Porter-Cable PC160JT 6'' VS Jointer

Porter-Cable PC160JT 6'' VS Jointer

06-22-2017 07:41 PM by CalOrgill | 14 comments »

The service from Max Tool was what was promised. The jointer was delivered on time and in great condition. I was building like this chair as well products Set up went smoothly until I got to a few of the screws that needed to be loosened. The heads of the hex screws stripped with pressure on the hex wrench. Luckily I could clamp vice grips on the head and it finally cracked loose. That is, at least, the one for the blade head lock. I never got the top two for the dust collector attachment loo...

Sweet jointer at a very nice price

Sweet jointer at a very nice price

I already own Cutech’s bench top planer and like it a lot. Now that I have the space for it, it was time for a jointer and having liked the spiral cutterhead for the planer, why not for the jointer too? I had an issue with some of the cast pieces that was resolved after some email back and forth with Mike from Cutech, who was super helpful. He mailed me replacement parts and they worked very well. The jointer works great and comes with a nice set of pushpads. Best of all for me...

Scorpion 12" Helical JOINTER/PLANER

Scorpion 12" Helical JOINTER/PLANER

05-05-2017 06:50 AM by Andre | 32 comments »

Just a quick review to let state my personal opinion, anybody interested in the spec’s can look them up.The basic’s are it is a 12” (Helical head made by Stinger) jointer planer combo machine that excels in the jointer department and really planes very acceptable, the conversion is a hassle. Procedure is easy and fast enough just a pain to switch the Dust Collection over. I do not use the planer function all that often so the gain in shop floor space more than makes up ...
