    Very nice. I grabbed a Delta benchtop jointer last year, and while it's admittedly more of a convenience than a necessity, it's a serious convenience that I've not once regretted. Here's to many years of nicely surfaced boards!

    Nice! It's funny that it looks exactly like my 6" Delta jointer, though it must actually be a lot bigger in person. How much does one of those set you back? That extra 2" would be very convenient sometimes...

    In Canadian dollars a 6" is $399 and a 8" is $599

    There are at least 4 name brands they go under But I think they are made by a company called Cutech

    Very nice!

    Is that a 6" or 8" ?




    edit: Just read your last post - if you are running 120' of 1"x8", it must be an 8" :)

    They look alike at first glance but the 6" doesn't have extensions IMG_20200923_144329338_HDR.jpg
    This is the 6"
