I have just purchased this jointer/planer,...

Charles L from Oakland, CA Posted August 2, 2010
I have just purchased this jointer/planer, and have run about 100' of softwood (doug fir, redwood) through it to test it out. Here are my first impressions:- poor alignment out of the box. + Knife blades 1/32" higher on one side than other + Outboard end of jointer infeed table is about 1/16" higher than edge closest to knife + edge of jointer infeed table closest to front of machine has vertical play even when table is fully locked down + fence is WAY out of square relative to table, by about 1/4" from front to back + planer table not parallel to cutter blades - off by 1/32" from one side to the other + the manual does not list how to align anything other than the blades. I've heard it can be done though.- knife blades are already knicked after less than 100' of soft lumber. Soft steel?- planer doesn't take off much per passOn the plus side, the jointer table surface is reasonably flat. It's pretty compact (negatives and positives there), easily portable, and feeds at a decent rate. Switching from jointing to planing is a bit of a hassle - the dust collector must be removed from under the cutter head in the planer area, and then screwed down on top of the table where the blade guard normally lives. If I can get the alignment issues sorted out, it's a decent machine for small jobs.

I cannot possibly list...

I have never given any kind of review to any other woodworking power equipment in my life. I cannot possibly list all of the design and production flaws that this Jet has to offer. Non-flat infeed & outfeed tables . . no ability to adjust the outfeed table height . . .non-square fence . . .cheap & ineffective knives . . .decibel noise levels that have been outlawed . . .planer feature feeds sorta and give good snipe . . .too many defects to possibly list. I have lived to regret this purchase and have consequently replaced this door-stop with a decent cast-iron jointer and purchased a good quality stand alone planer. This Jet "Combo" unit seems to offer the best of both worlds . . .Don't believe it.
