I bought the Jet 6” Spiral...

Vic R from Youngstown, OH Posted May 27, 2013
I bought the Jet 6” Spiral Jointer in Feb 2013 to replace an existing jointer. My 15 year old, Taiwan built, 6” Delta never really lived up to expectations. It was only last year that I figured out a major part of the problem was a slight dip in the out-feed table. It must have come from the factory that way and I never realized it. When the Jet arrived, that was the first thing I checked out. To my delight, both tables were perfectly flat. I was extremely anxious to try out the new Jet Spiral cutter because I only found one review for the 6” Jet compared to myriad reviews for a particular competing brand. I had zeroed in on the Jet unit because I was not keen on the other brand name and the shearing action of the Jet compared to the chopping action of the others made all kinds of sense to me. I had read conflicting accounts of the performance of Spiral Cutter systems in general. Some praised them highly, while others panned them for leaving streaks in the surface. I almost did not buy it because of these reports. I am finally using it on a project that has tested its capabilities to the max. I am making a total of four 18” wide x 78-1/2” high x 1-3/8” thick, Oak, frame and panel doors. The pleasure of placing two 80” long x 4” wide jointed surfaces together for an absolute perfect fit the entire length is almost too much to take after all the years of frustration using the Delta unit. The jointed surfaces are flawless. I love the fact that by simply slowing down the feed rate, I can cut against the grain and still get a perfect surface. Very often when jointing the edge of an Oak board, you can’t avoid some "against the grain milling." I see no difference between the cuts with the grain and the cuts against the grain. I also trued up the faces of some 5/4” x 6” x 50” Oak boards in preparation for raised panel glue-ups. After two light-cut passes, they were perfectly flat. Surface looked great. None of the reported mill mark streaks were evident. I used my Wixey digital angle detector to dial in the 90 degree setting for the fence, to create perfectly square edges for the glue-ups I love this Jointer. JET RULES.

This unit is a wonderful piece...

David P from West Warwick, RI Posted September 4, 2010
This unit is a wonderful piece of kit. Well built and quite heavy. I check tables and fence for square before every use and have had no need to make any adjustments in almost a year.The helical head is well worth the extra money. It gives smooth clean cuts, even in figured woods like curly and quilted maple. The best part is the end of setting knives.
