Great in small hone shop
Combines two valuable tools for the home shop at one affordable price. These are tools I normally couldn't justify cost-wise. And at ten inches, the jointer is much wider than most tools affordable in the home wood-shop. On first assembly, it seemed impossible to achieve properly aligned input and output tables, but an email to Jet got me an instruction page that should have been in the manual. It is difficult to put the dust collection funnel in position for jointing, but it really does fit when properly positioned. Dust collection or a shop vacuum is important, lest sawdust and shavings prevent smooth operation. Keep it clean. Overall, cut quality after a few uses is very good with small boards. I haven't tried yet, but longer boards will probably require auxiliary support.
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice
