    Hey all! I've been battling a Rikon 6in. benchtop jointer for several days trying to get a flat face joint. Every time I joint a board, there is a slight bow created. I followed the manual's directions to level the blade (at the highest point in its rotation) with the outfeed and infeed tables...

    I recently bought a used Craftex jointer, and after putting in new knives, I have a problem. If I locate the knives where the manual says I should - the base of the knife bevel about 1/16" above the cutter head - then the knives hit the outfeed table as they rotate. To get the knives low...

    I recently purchased an 8" jointer and I'm noticing that, after face jointing a few boards, that there are gaps on either side when putting the faces together. These are small gaps but visible nonetheless. I know that the opposite of this problem (gap in the middle of the board) means you're...

    Good Morning. I recently acquired a used, but well cared for, Craftsman 6 1/8" Jointer/Planer (113.206801) and have purchased a spiral head cutter to install. I also plan on replacing the bearings. What are the steps to removing the old cutter head and installing the new one. If there is a...

    Early 1980s craftsman jointer (model 113.206801). Not the best around but the one I have so there's that. The motor is starting fine then powering down suddenly and there is a bit of a burnt smell though it doesn't feel super hot. I don't know enough about motors (or anything electrical for that...

    I am bringing a mid 80s Bridgewood jointer back to life. I need to shim the tables to make them coplanar but there is no wiggle room to insert the shims. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!!

    I recently acquired an oldie but goodie Delta 6" 37-280 jointer that was never really pushed too hard according to the original owner. After some adjustment of the the in/out feed plates, the cutter knives and fence I fired it up for some tests. Disclaimer* - I've worked in a few woodshops in...

    Hi everyone. Since I don't have a jointer I'm planning on doing my jointing with my planer with a combination of a planer sled and some shims to raise up the high points. Here's an example video demonstrating the technique: Planing Jig - How to Use Your Planer to Joint Wood | Woodworking Jig -...

    Hello found the jointer that in the picture for sale in a good price. Seller said it’s working and it’s come with 1hp motor. I am looking for sometime to buy a small jointer and was waiting for the old 113 sears/craftsman one. Anyone recognise the manufacture or model number? Does it worth the...

    I purchased a used Rockwell 8" jointer, model 37-315. It has a 3-phase motor. I did not realized that I could not easily run 3-phase electricity in my home workshop. I'm wondering now if it would be easier to buy a converter to run the 3-phase motor or swap-out the motor for a single phase...

    I am building a cart for a miter saw. Using 2x4 and milling it down to 1-1/4x3. I've got multiple doubts in the process I am using. First I cut to length. Second I run it through the jointer on the side. Third I run it through the jointer on the face... trying to get that perfect 90° angle...

    After joining this page to help me decide between a portable tabe saw vs. a router table, I settled on a jobsite table saw... only to be sent a link to . In the video, the woodworker explicity mentions one should NOT use a table saw on "rough-cut/non-straight" wood. Which is the whole reason I...

    I picked up an old Sears Craftsman 6-1/8 Jointer Planer for $30 at a garage sale (Model 113.206931). I dug up the manual (attached) and intend to make it usable again....unless anyone can convince me it's not worth it :smile2: Motor runs, belt is older but still works. The blades turn and...

    I'm looking at upgrading to a 12-inch or 16-inch jointer, but I can't find any woodworking mobile bases on the market to support a tool of this weight or size. The heaviest jointer I'm looking at is 1,600 lbs with a footprint of 57" x 23". I have concrete flooring in my garage. I would really...

    Hi guys, new member and 1st post. I’m moving up to a 8” jointer. I would like to stay around 1500-1600. But can go to $2000. Grizzlies all seem to be on back order. Thinking jet or shop fox. This is a huge step up from my tiny delta bench top so I really don’t want to order one and spend this...

    So, I see a lot of people talking about their Jet JJ-6 jointer on here and I have a few questions about mine that I can't seem to find the answers on. First off, I bought mine for $250, (I know I won't get that back), at a yard sale 2 years ago with extra handles and springs, newly sharpened...

    Hi! I desperately need a jointer to start making cribbage boards, shelves, etc. This one is a 6" jointer with HSS knives for $250. It will be my first jointer EVER, and I just want to make sure it's a good purchase. Also, I'm hoping if it breaks or needs new parts, they'll be available...

    I bought an old craftsman jointer for $25 (my first one) why so cheap? The blades are discontinued. Except if you go to mywoodcutter.com they had the blades for my 4 1/8 jointer. Little pricey $45 but I'm off and running. They have a large selection. I hope this helps
