  • Benchtop jointer?

    If you only have room for a benchtop jointer, are these useful, or should you go with other methods?

    I was looking at the Grizzly G0612 or the Delta JT160. The Delta has mixed reviews. I can't find any for the Grizzly.

    Any advice?

    If a benchtop jointer will fulfill you needs than go for it. On the other hand, if you'll be wanting to joint many boards longer than a couple of feet then I think that you'll end up disappointed with one.

      a rule of thumb is the board should not be more than 2-3 times the lenght of the jointer
