Industrial-Style Hand Wheels for Smooth Adjustments
The JJ-6CSX boasts a unique design that allows you to adjust both of the feed tables simply by rotating industrial-style hand wheels that turn smoothly and easily. This feature allows for easier tapers and enhances user control when taking precise, fine measurements as low as 1/64 of an inch.

Smooth Gliding Fence Offers Multiple Stops
Additionally, the fence glides smoothly throughout its complete range of motion and tilts both ways with the traditional stops at 45 and 90 degrees to handle bevel operations. This also allows you to quickly reproduce multiple cuts at any angle.

Steel Knife Cutter Head for Speed; Cast-Iron Table for Accuracy
One of the most innovative aspects of the JJ-6CSX's design is the triple-bladed, high-speed steel knife cutter head, which delivers rapid cutting and a superior finish for high-quality results. The blades are part of an exclusive auto-set quick-change knife system, which allows you to replace or change all three blades in a fraction of the time other machines take.

The jointer also features a cast-iron table with a precision-machined finish, so you can count on the accuracy of each pass.

Powerful 1 HP Motor and Rabbeting Ledge for Versatility
Equipped with a powerful 1 HP motor, the JJ-6CSX easily handles a wide range of jobs. A built-in rabbeting ledge also lends versatility, while a heavy-duty, one-piece steel closed stand includes mounting tabs for increased stability, so you can easily handle different wood types and sizes.

User-Friendly Controls and Features
Designed to be extremely user-friendly, the JJ-6CSX features industrial push-button controls conveniently placed throughout for easy access. In addition, the center fence controls are conveniently mounted to allow quick adjustments, and a built-in dust chute with four-inch port quickly connects to your collection system for efficient dust and chip disposal.

The JJ-6CSX weighs 215 pounds and comes with a five-year warranty.

I was fortunate enough this year to be able to upgrade several pieces of equipment in my shop. After spending a considerable amount of time studying reviews and looking at Jet, Delta and Powermatic equipment, I decided to go with JET because of the fit and finish, the features and overall value. I think that Jet has come a long way in the past 10 years to improve quality to a level as good as and in many cases better than their competition.
This jointer replaced a very old Delta which had handwheels located under the tables. I liked the Jet because the handwheels are located in front of the tables. Some people find that adjustment levers work best for them, but I have always prefered handwheels because its easier for me to make small adjustments.
The unit arrived in excellent condition. There were no scratches, dents or missing parts -great job Jet! It was packaged in two boxes with the contents of each identified on the outside of the boxes. By the way, the instruction manual is located in the (larger) box that contains the jointer table and various other parts. The smaller box contains the base, and the base door. Everything is tightly packed in styro containers and wrapped in plastic bags. Jet even packs a small can of paint, two wrenches and an allen wrench to adjust the cutters (however, mine were set perfectly at the factory). The instruction manual is well written and has good picture references.
I put the unit on a shopmade mobile base that I made and had used sucessfully with the Delta jointer. I like it because it lifts the unit up about 2" and does not slip when you apply pressure or work with heavy wood. (I found the plans in a "Shop Notes" magazine a couple of years ago).
The unit went together with no hitches. The fit and finish is great.

Picked one up a couple months ago.

Everything was right on. Assembled it according to the instructions and it cut like a dream. I tested it out with some scraps of oak I got at my wood supplier. Great finish and perfectly straight after running them through a couple times.

Machine has little vibration. Not too loud. Plenty of power.

Like every machine that has the typical 'fan belt', the vibration can be reduced with a link belt, along with a reduction in noise. Hearing protection is a must with any wood cutting operation, just as important as safety glasses.

I went a long time without a jointer and have greatly increased the quality of my work with it. If you are looking to add a nice piece of equipment to your shop to help you produce better results, I would recommend this jointer.

This machine has all the right features. First thing to do is coat the fence and table surfaces with Slip-It or a non-silicon wax. It's a night and day difference when the wood easily glides across the table and when you have to force it.

For a 6" jointer it was the Jet or the Delta. For me, the Jet had the edge with the hand crank adjustment of the infeed and outfeed tables.

Update: Did some rabbiting cuts with it and it worked great. Seemed alot easier and safer than using a router. Finish on the cuts was excellent. Hogged out about 1/4" in a single pass in hard maple with no problem.

Hope this helped.

I researched 6" jointers and narrowed my search to the Delta or the Jet.

There's some disagreement as to the best way you adjust the tables and people have there favorite way to adjust the table and I listen to both arguments. I thought from the outset that I'd hate the lever and love the wheels.

The wheels on the Jet provide more precision while the Deltas lever seems more hit or miss, perhaps like having to tap a table saw fence in order to creep up on the adjustment.
When I went to try these two for myself I found the Delta to be extremely easy and smooth. Surprisingly accurate. I guess that may account for why many high-end jointers use a lever. The Jets wheels seem almost like a silly gimick in comparision. It's my personal first reaction when I tried them both, quite contrary to what I first assumed. I'm not saying there's a destinct advantage although it may seem so. It's my personal preference. Also note, that usually you leave the tables alone once you get them set.
Also, I originally liked the rack and pinion fence on the Delta. It's also higher than the Jets, but I haven't had any trouble at all with the Jet fence at all. I may have heard that the Delta fence might wear along part of the bed as you adjust it. With the Jets you have to lift it when you adjust it so you're not dragging it across the bed. That's actually a quicker action to perform. If you're joining edges you should move the fence to different positions across the cutter occasionally so you don't wear the blade in one set position.
The only benefit I could see with having this rack and pinion is sneaking up on a rabbet cut. Maybe the Rack and pinion fence looks more substantial, perhaps it's more solid if memory serves me.

We operate the Jet 6" jointer in our wood shop and we have found it to be a solid tool for the last 9 months. It replaced a craftsman unit from the 50's. Reading some of the reviews, it seems Jet is still suffering from a boonedoggle from a few years ago with a poor decision to keep up with demand for their large machines. They decided to use what is called "green" castings so that they could keep up production of their equipment to meet demand. "Green" means they used castings that weren't left to rest for about a year and instead used castings that were probably 2 to 4 months old. Being green the metal internally shifts. They ground these to tolerances, built up the machines and shipped them out. Then the consumer got it and found that the tables, fences etc. were twisted, warped and out of tolerance due to the metal shifting to its final position. We learned about this with a Jet cabinet saw bought 3 years ago. we had the table ground to spec twice in the first year! [(it was so bad the fence would bind!) Out with the Jet and in came another Delta Unisaw.]
This jointer has served us well and we really can't find any
real flaw with it except that the in-feed / out-feed tables are short for handling longer boards, we modified ours to extend our In/out-feed tables to help handle this problem when we run long boards which isn't often. We choose this unit over the Delta due to the "twist" adjustments instead of the handles on the Delta. The setup was fairly simple but we did spend some time getting it all aligned, we use a dail indicator to get all our tools dead perfect. So far the machine has maintained the accuracy of our set-up. Very important! The fit and finish is very nice.
