Topic tags/keywords: humor question jointer

Glad to see they chose a model who really knows how to use the tool. How many things can you find wrong with this image?

Personally I like to have my jointer sit a little higher. I find that if it’s at eye level without me having to lean over a bit, it’s easier for me to feed the wood across it without applying any downward pressure at all. It’s also easier to feed it through evenly when you stand behind the fence where it can block your view.

I also religously wear cotton gloves and a long sleeve unbuttoned shirt around any spinning machinery. Oh, and I buy all my power tools at the grocery store.

Thanks Rich. I needed a giggle this afternoon ;-))

You almost had me going there, Kenny. I completely missed the Aldi logo. Good eye.

I’m sure that a $200 jointer is going to be a precision machine.

Well, I think Ken pretty much nailed them all with his refined sense of humor.

He is looking at somethin, but I am not sure what, sure is focused though. But wait, the blade isnt spinning. Machine is not plugged in, doh. The photoshoot P.A. needs to be fired because she should have at least thrown some wood chips around about.

That has to be the crapiest piece of crap I have ever seen; anyone who buys it is just as dumb as a bucket of sand.

Thanks Rich, for making me laugh today.

I will have to admit to purchasing some light duty squeeze clamps and some chisels at Aldis in the past and they both still survive and see regular duty in my shop. I’m gonna draw the line at a powered jointer/planer combo though.

PS I love “bozone” Rich. That’s my FILs favorite playful insult. He’ll get a kick out of the expansion :-)

I think it’s a cute little jointer.
If it just a little smaller I’d put one on my key chain.
I could use little jointer like that to square up my finger nails at the doctors office while I’m waiting. :)
Hopefully I could get my big toe under that silly euro guard.

Good Luck to everyone

As for marketing- Ist impressions, regarding the product and the model (male/female) or vice versa. IMO is this the product that I want?
Not for me- since I am in the American market place and I started to purchase my tools from Sears to Norm Abrams to Tommy Mac, not that Euro guy all decked out.
or
a more gentile approach to woodworking…

The machine has a great guard on it. No way your hand could slip under it.

That ad is funny, and dangerous too. :-(

Call me a weirdo, but the combo jointer/planer machine caught my attention?

After some research, learned what happens when Steel City USA (closed in 2015), and IVT Swiss ask a bunch of Chinese Mfg to build cheap bench top jointer/planer; You have a power tool without a big name, made by way too many mfg.

Steel City introduced that tool in 2013 at AWFS:
http://www.startwoodworking.com/post/new-line-benchtop-tools-save-space-and-cost-less
https://www.finewoodworking.com/2013/07/30/awfs-steel-city-benchtop-tools-cost-less-and-save-space
(Steel City assets and name were sold to Canadian company alive today, they don’t sell this model)

Swiss IVT did same:
https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Planer-Jointer-BPLJ-1250-1250W_136841688.html?
(Swiss IVT site is not in English)

And all the folks they quoted in China for low price, decided to make a clone of it and have it for sale:

New Reaching Machinery
https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/8-Planer-jointer-W2-PT8C_62105863388.html

Zhejiang Langcheng Industry
https://chinalangcheng.en.alibaba.com/productgrouplist-805974373/2_in_1jointer_thicknesser.html?

TMC Machinery:
https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Professional-Electric-Woodworking-Jointer-And-Planer_60091468611.html

Xiamen Strongtech Co., Ltd:
https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Professional-8-Inch-Jointer-and-Planer_62108112601.html

Qingdao Jemar Power Equipment Co
https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/JP-254L-1500W-WOOD-JOINTER-PLANER_60601413869.html

Bright Machinery:
https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/8-Wood-Jointer-Wood-Planer-Thicknesser_400902005.html

With this many folks making similar tool, no wonder ALDI can buy them cheap and sell them cheap!

Cheers!

Update: Should I discuss “Bozone” people love it. Again, Rich is right.
Thanks Rich for never using that word towards me during our discussions…
