Two-in-One Design to Maximize Space
The JJP-8BT's space-saving design doesn't skimp on efficiency. In fact, because it combines a benchtop jointer and a planer in one unit, you get a two-in-one machine to maximize work space. For added peace of mind, the planing and jointing tables lock to ensure precision.

Powerful Motor for Robust Performance
Powered by a heavy-duty 13 Amp motor that produces 18,000 cuts per minute, the JJP-8BT offers consistent, robust performance job after job. It also features a feed speed of 19.5 feet per minute, so you can complete more cuts in less time.

Sheet Metal Outfeed Table and Steel Knives for Versatility and Precision
Versatile enough to handle a range of material sizes, the JJP-8BT includes a sheet metal outfeed table with height adjustment that supports even long work pieces. Its clever design also reduces snipe for consistent results. And two high-speed, durable steel knives help ensure precise, smooth cuts.

Stable and Accurate Jointing and Planing
While you work, the strong aluminum extruded fence can be angled up to 45 degrees, making jointing more stable and accurate. Additionally, the planer includes a scale and pointer that indicate the distance between the planer table and cutter head. Finally, an integrated cord wrap makes for easy portability and prevents accidents or errors caused by dangling plugs and wires.

Oversized Ergonomic Knobs
For safe, secure operation, the JJP-8BT gives you easy access to the controls you need while working. In fact, the oversized, ergonomic knobs are extremely user friendly, helping you avoid errors caused by a slippery grip and preventing you from wasting time hunting for hard-to-see buttons or switches. Instead, these easy-to-see, stable knobs provide you with maximum control at every stage in your job.

The JJP-8BT is backed by a three-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.

If you are a hobbyist with a limited budget as well as limited floor space, this machine should do the trick for you. If you are one of the minority with unlimited funds and space, you probably will want to look for a machine with more horsepower. The following is a breakdown of my experience with this little number.

First of all, I went with the 8 inch instead of the 10 inch because both seem to have the same motor. 2 inches might not seem like much, but the difference can be quite substantial when you are putting resistance to a motor. Jointers and planers have a relationship to each other. So, to me, it didn't really matter that I was losing a few inches in planing width since I would not be able to flatten a wider board on the jointer anyway.

The box arrived in good condition. There was no damage to the machine. I did have a torn bag of locknuts and washers. Some of these parts were probably littering the factory as I was missing a couple. Fortunately, I keep a supply of such items handy so was not a show stopper. I did spend a little bit of time looking for panhead screws that do not exist. There must have been a change since the instruction printing because hex bolts, not panheads, hold the blade guard to the machine.

I did have a notched blade and I can tell you that jet will be about the only company that carries them. They advertise the part in metric not fractional sizes. Because I was impatient, I ordered a set of Freud 1/8th blade thickness blades. The ones Jet carries are about 1/16th thick and seem rather flimsy to me. Some of this is probably due to the horse of the planer and there is less strain on a machine if the blades are thin. As it is, I probably will not take more than a 1/32 cut at a time due to the thickness of the blade.

I finally got this put together. Not too bad, except as others have noted, the assembly manual is poor, inlcuding the fact that the hardware mentioned in it is not what you get! A call to customer service and a review by a QC guy confirmed this.
This is my first machine of these types, and to me it works great as a jointer. Big problem with planer - I am getting horrible snipe! Adjusting the planer extension outfeed table would be a joke if it was not so frustratingly hard. Can't get it positioned right. Interesting that the manual says to adjust it slightly higher than the main table, while another reviewer (for the 10" model) recommended making it slightly lower! I'll work on the extension again and see if that is the problem.
The other problems noted by other reviewers did not show up in my machine.
Now have the planer working fine. I got some longer screws to make the extension table assembly easier to manage, and got it adjusted so that it was tilted up. Now planes very flat!
I would change my vote to 4 stars (4 1/2?) if the site would let me, but it won't. It is still only short of 5 because of the assembly problems.

I managed to assemble this sturdy table-top unit (despite the substandard documentation.) Next, I ran a warped (it was cupped) piece of 14 in. x 5 and 1/2 in. x 7/16 in. aspen through the jointer operation 4 or 5 times at the 1/32 in setting.

The planer has a scale and pointer that indicates the distance between the planer table and the cutter head. I ran it through 4 or 5 times and now have a nice and flat 14 in. x 5 and 1/2 in. x ¼ in. piece.

For the jointer, send the work through using one of the two push blocks (included with the machine) in your left hand and a push stick in your right hand. Jet does not say this but my basic woodworking book said this is the best way (unless the piece is very thin to begin with.) I would not use just my hands except on a VERY thick work piece.

The fence seems strong and accurate and can be angled up to 45 degrees.

Jet tells you to move the wood through in the direction of the grain. It also states that the use of a 2 ½ in vacuum or 4 in. dust collector will greatly improve the results. Adaptors are included and the 2 and ½ in. exactly fit my 6.5 hp Shop Vac which picked up about 90 percent of the waste/shavings from the two operations.

My initial ratings are:

-Documentation---** (barely adequate)
-Packaging------**** (thick Styrofoam)
-Quality---------***** (so far)
-Value----------***** 2 in 1 table top ($329 free ship)
-Durability-------***** unknown so far
-Ease of Use-----*****
-Warranty-------**** (3 years but defective parts must be sent back pre-paid ship for replacement)

-Customer Support unknown for now, however:

I will soon find out the quality of support as one of the two thick 1/8 in.

This little gem provides just the right tool to get the job done. Set up was easy, less then an hr. I take pallets apart and then plane/joint the wood. I have ran mass amounts of oak through this thing and as long as you take off just a little bit at a time it works great with no snipe or marks. It basically eliminates sanding, just awesome. It is loud, the front plastic housing was cracked upon arrival but doesn't do anything to the performance. Be sure you have some dust collection system ready, the Jet planer/jointer puts out some serious saw dust. The price is right at $336 for having both functions, I could not do what I do with out it. Great tool!!!!!!!

Update 2/11/10

Just reading over the reviews and I must say i still love my machine never had any issues like others are describing. Now its even cheaper then before...again 2 thumbs up 5 stars great machine!!!
