Topic tags/keywords: jointer planer ridgid knives mill tools plane joint used

Hey everyone. I’ve come across a local guy selling his Ridgid TP1300 planer and JP0610 Jointer. Both seem to be in good condition he says no issues with them, he just doesn’t use them. He said $400 for both or $250 each. Good deal? I’m not familiar with either model, I know the TP1300 is the older model of the current Ridgid planer, so just looking for some feedback if anyone has used or owns these. Thanks for your time!

Not familiar with the JP0610, but I had the Ridgid TP1300 and it was a great little planer IMO. Easy to set for repeated thickness and basically no snipe if setup properly. If they are in good condition, $400 for both is a very reasonable price – and you can sell one of them to make up most of that.

Cheers,
Brad

The JP0610 is decent 6” jointer. They sell for $150-200 used in my area. There are 2 versions of that model. The older one with gray paint, and newer one with orange. They were made by different mfg, but are same design excluding the paint.
Their resale prices stay relatively low as HD sold them on close out for < $300 when they changed models. Have 30+ HD stores in Phoenix and the were 1-3 cheap jointers available in every store.

The base on JP0610 is solid, but only stamped steel. They work great for small jobs, but due short tables; running long heavy 8/4 boards can tip the machine without additional support/rollers. All the small jointer’s with stamped steel bases have same issue, so it’s part of design not a defect?

Like all jointers, don’t want to pick up and carry via ends of tables. My son sat on my JP0610 out feed table and had to add some shims under the table to the dovetails to compensate for the sag. Was easily fix, but shims try to move when adjusting the out-feed table any significant distance. Best to avoid overloading the tables. :-)

Best Luck.

I had that same combination for many years and they served me well. I think $400 for both is a good value if they are really in good shape.

I have the jointer. Works just fine. Changing to a cogged belt will smooth it slightly, but as usual, watch the size designations. Chinese belts are not marked correctly.

Have your say...
