Topic tags/keywords: woodtek jointer help manual asian green yellow 220v

I cannot find anything on the interwebs about WOODTEK products!?
What I knoe is they’re produced in Asia and the brand has been discontinued??
I just bought a 10” 220v straight knife jointer and I’m desperate to find more info on the machine. An owners manjual would be amazing. Here’s a link to the exact jointer I bought:https://woodworker.com/10-jointer-straight-knife-2hp-1ph-mssu-148-292.asp.

ANY HELP WOULD BE IMMENSELY APPRECIATED!

Thanks guys!

It seems to be a house brand for woodworker’s supply so if you need a manual, best chances are to contact them and see if they have one. They even have a section for Woodtek parts, which seems to confirm the house brand.

I believe Rayne is correct.

When I worked for the Anchorage School District we had a Woodtec 3 head shaper. It was OK, the fences weren’t grate but usable.

I’d start by calling woodworker s supply

It looks to me like woodworker supply still sell that jointer. Again I’s call them. They should be able to tell what you what to know.

There a big change it was made by Gee Tech and labeled Woodtec.

Thanks y’all. I actually reached out a few days ago to some folks at woodworkers supply.com. I’m hoping they can help me find a manual.

TMK – Oliver is only other company that sold a stand alone jointer with 10” capacity.
The Oliver manual might help you until find Woodtek version.

+1 Call Woodworker’s Supply. They are best with customer service on phone. WoodTek is their private brand for equipment.

PS – Design looks common to that made by Chiu Ting Machinery Co (Geetech) from Taiwan/China. They make machines for many OEM.

Oliver is US parts source for any Geetech mfg tools. So if Woodworker’s Supply can’t help with Geetech parts, call Oliver parts dept.

Best Luck.
