  • JP0600 vs JP0610

    I'm going to purchase a ridgid jointer.
    i can get the jp0600 about $50 cheaper
    than the jp0610.
    the functional differences appear to be
    minimal, 3/4hp motor vs 1hp and single bevel
    fence vs dual bevel.
    don't think the 1/4hp will matter much.
    and for jointing miters and edges, how
    important is the dual bevel fence?
    any suggestions

    thanks

    Spend the $50.00, the JP 610 also has jack screws for the cutter head. Without these you will spend $35 - $50 for a jig to set the blades anyway, so if you look at it that way you get the 1/4hp and the dual bevel fence for free.

      For more infomation on the new JP0610 go here.

      The new unit has an easier to assemble, wide stance base, with onboard storage for push blocks and tools. The fence is a heavier dual bevel fence and the cutterhead is now adjusted with jackscrew, no knife setting gauge needed. The dust collector port slides out of the way when not in use. On competitor units it must be removed completely.

        I purchased the jp0600 just before the 610 came out. Had I known I would have purchased the jp0610. Ridgid doesnt have a trade up policy does it?

          Just got the new JP610
          Assembly was easy and worked great out of
          the box, no adjustment. Didn't pay $399 for
          either, some Home Depots will still bargain
          to get the sale (not as much as they used
          too).

            Just curious as to how any of you who purchased the new 6010 Jointer have equipped it with mobile (wheels) base? Good old HD has them in stock but of course none on display. Could casters be attached directly to the base/legs? The new jointer has a somewhat unusual looking base so this is why I ask.

              Ibuilt a mobil base for mine. Just built a rectangle out of 2x4 using half lap at the corners and then mounting locking casters. I set the base (before mounting jointer) and marked where the feet would sit. I then used a forstner bit to bore .25 deep holes for the feet to sit on. Cost >$20.00 and it works great, I am 6'2" so the extra height is an added bonus for me.
