  • JP0610 upgrade

    I have a JP0610 jointer and love it. Just a couple of suggestions.

    1. I remember the old JP0600 on the enclosed base. The base was nice but the current base to me is as stable. However, how about making the base a few inches taller. I would like to not bend over quite so much to use the thing.

    2. I realize that selling accessories is always good for the company, but how about providing information for expendables such as the blades. The exact dimensions in the manual would be nice for those that would like to purchase extra blades and can not get the Ridgid blades locally or would like to try another manufacturer such as Freuds blades.
    I came...<br /><br />I saw...<br /><br />I changed the plans.

    the blades is a non issue. any 6" jointer knife will fit. i have a set of craftsman i bought while waiting for ridgid to send be a replacement set under warranty because one was split oot of tyhe box.

    i too agree the jointer could be a bit taller. i built an inexpensive mobile base out of a few 2X4" and some 2" casters. this raised the unit just over 3" higher and is very comfortable to use
