    New jointer gloat!

    Just got back from Sears. I had some reward points to use and it was on sale, so between those two incentives, I got out the door for $175. Not too bad.

    My next door neighbor has a nice 6" jointer that I can use for bigger stuff, but most of what I'll be using it for is just edge jointing boards for glue up. I just got home, so I'm going to put the Tigers on the radio and start assembly and setup.

    It works great!

    It actually has a granite fence and granite infeed and outfeed tables. It was quick and easy to assemble and set up. I just got the edges for my shelf boards jointed. I'll probably do the glue up in the morning. I just ran the glued up fourth leg for my project through it and I've got it all down to finished size and it's nice and square. I wish I'd have had this thing a long time ago!

    Looks good John
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
