  • JP0600 Jointer, any data on the new model?

    I live in Canada, and went to Home Depot to buy one and they told me there is a newer model coming out very soon - and it's like $100 more. Does anyone know the new model number and should I get the newer one or get them to grab me an older one from a different store?

    Thanks,

    The new model is a JP0610 and has several updated features such as more horsepower, a dual bevel fence, and a wider easier to assemble base!

    Here's a link to more information

    Look under the Stationary Power Tools section and click on JP0610.

    If you have any questions let me know.

      Could not access the new owners manual. Any idea when it will be available online?

      Thanks in advance...

        I Just purchased the JP0610. As best I can tell the major differences are an updated fence, more powerful motor, an updated stand, and the biggest of all, is the new model uses jack screws for aligning the blades to the table.

        I have not set it up yet so I have not had a chance to try it out yet. Will update after I have it assembled

          I got the jointer set up last night. It went together easily in about 1.5 hours. Ran soem test pieces through it, and right out of the bax, the results are good. Everything seams to be flat and aligned with just the slightest snipe on the tail end of the cut. I have not even checked the outfeed table height yet. I will be checking and calibrating the entire thing ASAP. I will check the tables and fence for flat, and I will use a dial indicator to make sure that the blades are parallel to the tables. If the inital cuts are any indication, this one is a keeper.

            One more thing. Jake if you are reading this, one little suggestion for the assembly instructions, they said to install the switch at the same time that the motor is installed. I would like to recommend that they leave the switch hanfing until the unit is mounted to the stand and the belt guard is in place. I had to remove and re-install the switch twice so I could get to the stand mounting bolts. The switch makes accessing the bolt that is directly above it almost impossible. Other than that, the instructions were very good. One other small gripe is with the packingof the hardware, it all comes in a cardboard and plastic pack, that even though it does make the hardware easier to identify thanks to the label under each of the different items, makes it a PITA to get a couple pieces of hardware out without dumping all of the hardware on the floor DAMHIKT. Other than that Ridgid seams to have a winner with this one. Very impressed with the accuracy right out of the box.

                Got it for $399.00 at a Home Depot in Northern VA. I think it was supposed to be $449.00. They had just received the first shipment of the upgraded model, and I don't think their computers were updated yet.

                  The home depot near me; Newmarket, Ontario still doesn't have in the new model... and I remember being quoted $689 for it, up $90 from the older model.
