Instructions / MSDS
Since the other review was about shipping, I had to write one that is actually about the machine. This thing is truly awesome! I was going to save a few bucks and get the 6" but after talking with many professionals I decided to 'buy once, cry once' and go for the 8" helical head. Boy and I glad I did as most of the rough sawn wood that I have purchased has been just about 7"-8" in width. That means I would have had to rip every board in half, joint it, then put glue it back if needed and I really didn't want that hassle. The unit came in 2 crates which were very heavy and you definitely need another strong person for lifting the bed onto the motor housing. Once I got it all put together, it was pretty darn co-planer out of the box. Of course I had to adjust the fence a bit to get it perfectly square, and I check it every time before use, and its still square. I do recommend having this hooked up to a dust collector with the 4" port. I initially had this hooked up to my shop vac through a cyclone, but that bucket would fill fast and it was hard to keep up with the amount of shavings, and I keep it pretty limited. A world of difference with my new Shop Fox dust collector. As for shipping, no problems at all.
Not the machine but what was shipped
Bought the 8” HH jointer last month. Came in two wooden crates marked accordingly for what was ordered only to find that the base didn’t match the assembly manual.... the motor on/off switch was incorrect. Besides that the jointer is quiet and cuts nicely. Needed minor fence and table adjustments.
