  • jp6100 fence problem

    I noticed a post on the issue of the fence moving when locked and the Ridgid response was for the designers to fix the problem. what is the result of this?

    The 45ยบ forward stop was changed to keep the deviation from showing up when you lock the fence down. You can tell if a unit has this change by looking at the model number on the tool's nameplate. It should be a JP0610 1 not a JP0610 0.

      I believe that I have the same question, and I would just like a little clarification. I am assuming that the 45 degree stop problem is the one mentioned in the WOOD Magazine jointer review in the Sept. 2001 issue, where Ridgid's Dave Hazelwood states: "Engineers will add a third stop bolt for the 45 degree setting and eliminate the double-nut stop on the center rod of the JP0610".
      This being the case, can you tell the model number (with the 1 instead of the 0) from the outside of the box, or do you need to open it an examine the nameplate? I am going to be purchasing this unit, and I want to make sure I get the new one with the fix in it. Can I get Home Depot to order a new unit for me, or do I have to hunt around for new stock?

        Is this going to be available as a retro for the original 610. And if so are you planning to offer it for free like the replacement arbor for I believe it was the 2412

          By now most of the units in stock at HD should be -1 models not -0, but you will have to open the box to tell. The model name plate is on the back side of the outfeed table.


          If you have a -0 model first check and make sure the problem shows up. The problem only shows up on a small number of units. If you do see this problem please email me directly.
