As for the performance, it's been really good. The tables are, and have always been, flat and co-planer. The fence is flat enough for woodworking tolerances and it's easy to slide in and out. I do have a quibble with the fence lock, as it always seems to allow the fence to shift a degree or two either side of 90 degrees, which means I have to remember to check it with a square every so often.
Dust collection is pretty decent with a collector attached. Some chips do fall out the bottom though. The infeed table moves very smoothly and is capable of very fine adjustments.
Two years ago I removed the factory head and installed a Byrd helical cutterhead, which made a good jointer into a great one! If you go that route, the install is very easy and only took a couple hours to complete.
This machine has seen a lot of heavy work in my shop over the years and has never had problem, even after an hour of continuous running. The last big job it saw was several hundred linear feet of 8/4 hickory, which was all roughsawn and required face and edge jointing prior to planing. The jointer never bogged or had any issue.
This really is a great little jointer, especially for the price at which it was intended to be sold. Check with Home Depot to get one at a better price.
Assembly took about 1 hour or less, but I spaced it out over several hours because of heat & humidity. The assembly was straight forward, no misleading info or parts. In the belt tensioning stage it is best to have the jointer/motor correct side up. That way gravity assists you in tightening the screws that keep tension on the belt.
Things to watch for:
1) To retighten or put on a new belt you must remove the back plate (6 screws) by feel, then loosen the hard to reach motor mount bolts to slide the motor up or down. It's a bit tedious to reach and adjust belt tension.
2) The chip/dust chute plugs up pretty quick from the inside flanges, but a vacuum assist will greatly help here. I'm wondering if removing the plastic chute from the frame will expedite chip removal. I can sweep up later.
3)While the fence has 3 preadjusted settings they need to be double checked for correct angle before use. Mine were off by a hair.
4) Check the blade height and tables for colinear alignment. They are initially done at the factory and my adjustments were fine. The table was just a hair out of colinear alignment. The back of the table was OK , but the front was out by maybe 1/128th inch or less. I doubt it will be a factor in my work, but just knowing this is annoying.
5) The tables have a high polish finish on them. I waxed them several times over for smoothness and protection. However, if you use them to set a work piece for other than planing they will easily show minor scuffing or scratches.
Overall, operation was relatively quiet and little effort to feed stock. I make my cuts at 1/64th inch. Planing was a little louder, but not discomfortingly so on a 4 1/2" wide board at 1/64" depth of planing. I had some little plastic things I thought were for dust/chip removal; no, they were angle guides for the fence. I had no idea and used my tri-square for assembly already. The push blocks are OK. I'd rate this thing a 4 1/2 star only because the assembly of the v-belt or it's replacement is tedious and the beds are just so slightly out of co-linear alignment. It has already worked like a champ and I'm very pleased with the function for the price I payed.
Price: $389 at Home Depot if I opened a charge card ( I did and won't use it) otherwise it was $429. Bulky to load and carry home alone. Very happy with purchase and do recommend it.
