All-Enclosed Steel Base Cabinet for Stability
The JJ-6CSDX comes with an all-steel enclosed base cabinet. An integral tab at each end of the cabinet bottom makes it easy to secure the jointer to the floor whenever a suitable surface is available. This cabinet also provides a stable platform and puts the table surface at a comfortable 31-1/4 inches above the floor.

Fan-Cooled Motor for Consistent Performance
The base cabinet also houses the 1 HP, 1 phase 115/230-volt TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motor (pre-wired 115-volt) and wiring to help isolate those components from the dust-prone jointer environment. A large door on the rear of the base cabinet provides easy access to the motor, which spins the JJ-6CSDX cutterheads at a very consistent 6000 RPM for a desirable balance between speedy material removal and a silky-smooth surface on the wood.

Long Cast-Iron Table for Better Accuracy
The JET JJ-6CSDX features a long, cast-iron table with a smooth, flat precision-machined finish that keeps the wood sliding predictably while ensuring accuracy. Measuring 55-3/4 x 7-3/8 inches, this table makes straightening large project pieces accurate and reliable. Additionally, the overall cut capacity of 6-1/16 x 1/2 inches (WxD) can keep up with even the most active of home wood shops. Finally, the outfeed tables have built-in 1/2-inch rabbeting ledges that add a little more versatility to the jointer.

Handwheels for Easy Adjustments; Automatic Limiter for Safety
Both the infeed and outfeed tables feature Jet's exclusive front-mounted handwheels to make table height adjustments easy and accurate. And for safety and protection, an automatic limiter on the infeed table prevents the operator from accidentally taking overly aggressive cuts deeper than 1/8 inch. For added convenience, the depth limiter can be manually overridden easily but requires the operator to intentionally release it.

Steel Cutterhead with Three Knives for Long Life
The JJ-6CSDX uses a precision-machined steel cutterhead fitted with three high-quality knives measuring 6 1/6 x 3/4 x 5/64 inches (WxLxD). These knives have two cutting edges that effectively double their life, and they are aligned using Jet's exclusive auto quick-set system. A pair of cams at each knife actually adjusts the knife height. Once set, the cams are locked in position and the knives can be reversed or replaced without having to reset the height, eliminating the need for a knife-setting gauge.

Additionally, precision-machined pockets in the knives let you slip them onto the cams, thus retaining the setting. The openings in the knives are also wide enough that individual knives can be offset to compensate for a nick, further extending the life of each knife edge.

User-Friendly Features for Easy, Pleasant Operation
Designed to be an easy-to-operate, helpful addition to your shop, the JJ-6CSDX features a two-way tilting fence with positive stops at 45 and 90 degrees to handle bevel operations, as well as industrial push-button controls conveniently placed for easy access. Finally, a built-in dust chute with four-inch port connects to your collection system for efficient dust and chip disposal.

The JJ-6CSDX measures 22 x 37.5 x 56 inches (WxHxD), weighs 237 pounds, and is backed by a five-year warranty.

About JET: A History of Sharing New, Feature-Rich Products
Opened in 1958 after the founder of the company, Leslie P. Sussman, took the first Boeing Jet Airplane trip from Seattle, Washington to Japan, JET began as a small dealer that sold air hoists and trolleys out of a single hardware store in Seattle. Over the years, JET has carried everything from snowmobiles, transmitter radios, and forklifts to nylon stockings, but by the early 1970s, metalworking had become the base of their business line. And by the 1980s, JET had expanded into the realm of woodworking. Today, you'll find that JET offers a wide range of popular woodworking tools that are backed with best-in-class features and excellent service.

I am a serious woodworker and choosing the right jointer was a quest of much research. I chose the Jet 708457DXK for some innovated features.

1-The quick set knives cannot be underrated. It amazes me that tool manufactures have not had this feature since planers have had it for years.

2-Long bed. This 6" bed is with 56" of length is only comparable to the Power matic bed length. All other 6" jointers have shorter beds.

3-Handwheels. I'm not a fan of the "stick" adjustment on other jointers. See for yourself at any woodworking store. Test the incremental in feed adjustment on a wheeled vs. stick adjustment side by side. Big advantage to the hand wheels.

4-Customer service. Jet is owned by WMH group and they own Powermatic as well. Customer service history is excellent.

I bought this jointer pre-assembled, so no review on setup. I only had to set the fence 90 & 45 for adjustment. The out feed table came factory set and is perfect. I bought the HTC mobile base over the Jet mobile base due to HTC base lifts the jointer and sets it down on floor pads. The Jet base only locks the wheels.

The cuts on the jointer were as expected, smooth and crisp. The noise level is average for this type of machine.

Pros: As stated above 1-2-3-4.

-Dust collection is also very good.

-Double sided knives.

Cons: The jointer has a spring loaded pin on the rear of the machine that engages at the 1/8th inch cut on the in feed table. This prevents cuts over 1/8" being made, (maximum recommended cut.) This is somewhat a nuisance for an experienced woodworker that knows jointer cut depths. It is used for rabbiting. Pull the plunger out; turn the in feed wheel past 1/8" release the plunger.

I make my living building custom guns....so I demand the best tools. Poor quality just won't cut it!

This machine is very good. Excellent power, gorgeous finished cut, quiet and extrememly ACCURATE. I looked at many jointers costing several hundreds less and several hundreds more. I've also worked on many other brands over the years.

You will be very impressed with this tool if you take the time to set it up correctly. Quality is excellent.

I was able to perfectly square the most tortured, twisted pieces of hard, highly figured wood I had in the shop. Outstanding!! I'm very impressed and that's not an easy thing to accomplish.

I could not believe how fast this jointer went together. Really solid all around. Final decision to purchase this over the Delta X5 was the dust collection and location of the controls. Glad I did because dust collection especially works very nicely. Most adjustments were fine out of the box except the outfeed and even that was pretty close.

I think the other reviewers pretty much cover how great this jointer is for the price. I heartily agree, it was easy to set up (minus the weight, but then that's a good thing). Adjustments are easy to make when you need to, the 90 degree stop was perfect from the factory. On a mobel base it's easy to move around, and takes up less room then I thought.

It runs quietly and smoothly, the cuts it produces are at least as smooth and clean as the ones my Makita planer makes. Face jointing a 1/16" from 6" piece of maple, the motor seemed to have no difficulty. A very nice jointer. Once again JET has come through for me.

Update:

So they've raised the price quite a bit since I wrote this review. At this point, I don't know. I probably would have spent the extra cash and gone with the Powermatic.

Excellent value

I have owned this machine for 10 months now. I have jointed several thousand board feet of hardwood so I've kicked the tires and taken it around the block. The knife alignment system is excellent and works as advertised. Adjustment of depth in feed and out feed is excellent and easy.

The only thing I can fault is getting the fence 90 deg to the bed can be finicky. After locking the fence it moves just a bit out of square. This is really common for jointers of this design. Get yourself a digital tilt box and it's much easy; but if you're using a t-square it can get a little annoying. I also believe this machine is a bit underpowered at times; I have actually ground it to a stop on several occasions.

After several sets of knifes I decided to ditch the stock head with the Byrd tool SHELIX head. Very easy upgrade; just have Byrd install new bearing and it's a 2 hour job to install the new head and reset all tolerances.

It's a great machine, very quiet and planes very well. Adjustment mechanisms are easy to use and the bed surface is as flat as glass... very nice. Easy assembly with minimal clean up and adjustment required as others have stated.

I'd have to disagree about the cheap plastic insert just to the left of the blade. It's just bad design and impossible to get flush with the otherwise perfect fence. Wood (especially shorter lengths) can easily jam on it, which is not a safe thing. There is no reason to have it where it is. They could have easily had a fully flush fence and mounted this plastic slider underneath to the rear as there is plenty of space for it. This is only a problem for material less than one inch high, but still a major screw-up by JET.

They could have also made the Off switch a little more sensitive so that a hard push is not required.

All in all a nice addition to my workshop and so much quieter than my thicknesser.
