Machine overview

By

The JET JJ-6CSDX Jointer is JET’s smallest and most affordable jointer. It features quick-change straight blades, a rabbeting ledge, and front-facing handwheels to raise and lower the infeed and outfeed table.

Dovetail base

JET also offers the JJ-6HHDX jointer, which is practically identical except for the fact that it has a helical cutterhead. Both machines use a classic wedge-bed dovetail system over which the tables slide up and down.

The JJ-6CSDX is a compact machine with slim, but relatively long cast iron tables. Its 1HP motor is somewhat limited, but given the maximum jointing width of only 6 inches, it should be powerful enough. The small width capacity can be a limited factor when jointing board faces, and may require you to rip boards, joint them, and then glue them back together.

Quick-set Knives

The JJ-6CSDX has a knife system that only requires you to set it up once, after which the knives will automatically stay in the right position when you replace them. Each blade has two sharp edges and cannot be resharpened.

Replacement Knives: Because JET uses a specific quick-set system, you can’t just use any blades on this machine. Ones that specifically fit the JJ-6CSDX can be found on Amazon, eReplacementParts, or ACME Tools.

Machine Atlas Verdict

Solid machine with very long tables, making it excellent for edge jointing. Face jointing is hard because of the limited width.
