Small shop? Limited budget? That doesn't mean you have to give up on owning a jointer. This Shopmaster model is perfect for either situation but still packs features for precision woodworking. Variable speed offers 6,000 to 11,000 rpm, adjustable at the touch of a dial; infeed and outfeed tables adjust smoothly and easily.
Though the 30-inch bed is shorter than stationary models, you aren't losing anything in width, because the JT160's cutting capacity is a full 6-1/8 inches. The fence, shorter and lighter, of course, than stationary models, tilts 0 to 45 degrees outward for beveling and chamfering operations. Positive stops are at 45 and 90 degrees. One sure advantage over its big brothers: the JT160 weighs just 35 pounds. Its cutterhead uses two knives rather than three, and the knives level with an easy-to-adjust jackscrew. Rubber base pads keep this little fellow where you want him, and if you want a permanent home for it, a stand is available.
