You don't have to choose between buying a jointer or a planer - with the JJP-12, you can have both. Leave it to JET to design a machine that allows quick changeover between jointing and planing functions. This versatile machine features an extra large aluminum extruded fence with centered controls for quick adjustments, a built-in dust chute capable of handling both planing and jointing operations, and a powerful 3-horsepower induction motor that can handle the toughest lumber. A heavy-duty, fully welded steel base cabinet houses the motor and the planer table mechanism, while providing solid mounting for the associated controls and support for the jointer table and fence assemblies. Best of all, the fence can stay put when changing over functions. It's the best of both worlds!


Features:
  • Three high-speed steel knife cutter head provides rapid cutting and a superior finish
  • Parallelogram design keeps the table close to the cutterhead for improved finish and allows for precise depth of cut adjustments
  • Extra large aluminum extruded fence with centered controls for quick adjustments
  • Extremely quick changeover between jointing and planing functions. Fence does not need to be removed
  • Powerful 3HP induction motor easily handles the toughest jointing and planing tasks

Great machine for intermediate woodworkers to get professional results.
The Jet was delivered on time thanks to a conscientious scheduling clerk at the freight company. The planer came out of the box in pristine condition. It took me a while to figure out how to get the fence at exactly 90 degrees.I finally noticed a couple of stops that needed adjusted on the fence hardware. Once I got the 2 wire 10 gauge 30 amp power supply set up, I was able to mill a nice piece of ash to exactly 90 degree edges and parallel planes.

nice machine, but so so fence
I have not used this machine much yet, but I look forward to many years of use. While I wanted the helical head model (#JJP-12HH), I did not want to spend the extra $1500 for it. I did some research to find I could purchase the parts necessary to change out the head for about $900. My plan was to install the parts myself and save $600. The job turned out to be beyond my skills, so I had to hire a Jet authorized repairman to complete it. He spent about 8 hours and charged $700, so my money saving scheme was a bust. Now, about the fence... It was cupped with a .003" concavity running down the length of it about 2" off the jointer table. That may not seem large enough to worry about, but if you are jointing the edge of a 2" wide board, the result will be noticeably off of 90 degrees. I complained to Rockler who contacted Jet, then let me know it was out of warranty. After telling them it was purchased only 60 days ago, they apologized saying they were misinformed and referred me on to Jet customer service. The rep told me that since the fence was out of flat by less than .010", it was within specifications. I was surprised to hear that Jet's standards were so low for a precision machine. I decided to try calling customer service again hoping another representative might make a difference. He said that the specs were less than .005". That didn't help my case and showed a lack of a consistent policy at Jet. Since I no longer trust Jet's quality control, I do not want to spend the $100 for a replacement fence. While it doesn't sound like fun, my plan is to attempt to flatten the fence myself.

Sale price and having two machines in one for a smaller foot print in my shop.

I've had my eye on this tool for a while. The combination of the JET 10% off sale, the Rockler free shipping offer, and the workbench that is waiting to be made from the beech in my shop was too much to pass up. I've got to have it!

Hello, Is it working on 220 V ? And why you do not have same models as the jet website ?
Loic987 on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I had a special 230V 30A circuit wired into the sub-panel in my shop, with a ceiling mounted receptacle and matching plug on the joiner/planer. This thing will handle almost any job you throw at it. It's a beast.
Is there a helical head for this model to upgrade later on if Desire ?
