  1. You look like a man who take great care of his equipments. May I buy a used jointer from you for a great price 😁

  2. Excellent overview of jointers. I'm making my first purchase and your video was an excellent overview. Thanks!

  3. Excellent explanation thank you trying to buy a used jointer problem is I knew nothing about them before I came across this video

  4. Read the Amazon reviews on the Powermatic (1610082 PJ-882HH 8-Inch Parallelogram Jointer with Helical Cutterhead). Apparently, if the two planes are not coplanar and need adjustment, you are in for a hell of a time – the "adjustment mechanism [for the outfeed table] is extremely coarse". Hard pass.
