Machine overview

When you sign up, you can:

The JET JWJ-8CS is the largest jointer made by JET. This is the standard version, with straight knives. There is also another model with a helical cutterhead. Unlike the 6-inch model, the JWJ-8CS lacks quick-set knives and just has 3 standard blades.

The main selling points of this jointer are its long cast-iron tables, rigid fence, and easy-to-use handwheels for lowering the in- and outfeed tables. The fence has three positive stops at -45, 90 and 45 degrees.

It is more powerful than JET’s 6-inch jointers (2 HP vs 1 HP), and has more jointing capacity (8 inches), making it a very useful upgrade over the smaller models. Still, 8 inches is on the small side when face-jointing boards.

The jointer uses a classic wedge-bed dovetail system over which the tables slide up and down. The chrome handwheels make it a lot smoother to move the tables than on many comparable machines. It also has a special rabbeting ledge.

Cons

  • No quick-set or helical blades
  • 8 inches is still limited when face jointing boards

Pros

  • Very long cast-iron tables
  • More capacity than the 6-inch jointers
  • Reasonably powerful (2HP)
  • Handwheels to smoothly lower and raise the tables
