Start getting square, straight timber with this well-priced jonter.
The jointer is still the same classic wedge-bed design that has been in service for decades and is still used by all the major brands of jointers of this size because of its dependability. The bed itself and matching bedway on the tables are precision-machined multiple times over a number of days to allow the cast iron to settle and stabilize, then once assembled - the tables are again machined and polished over days for the same reason - so that each jointer bed has perfectly matched infeed and outfeed tables. With a 1.2m length, this jointer will comfortably straighten work pieces up to 2.4m long.
The cutterhead is now supported by Sherwood-specified Japanese SKF bearings, for a smoother and quieter operation with lower friction - improving service life and performance.
The outfeed table is adjusted via a plastic handwheel under the table for fine adjustments to get the table level with the cutterheads. The infeed table is adjusted via a hand lever for quick and easy adjustment. It is designed with positive engagement so you can still make relatively fine adjustments with ease without having to get down on your hands and knees to gain access to the handle.
The stand itself is made from L-angle steel that is powdercoated. It requires some time for assembly but the jointer and all components are packed in one box for easy transportation. The stand houses the same 1HP induction motor found on the 6in Cabinet Jointer and has an integral dust chute with 4in outlet on the end for efficient waste extraction. The switch is located at the front of the stand with a quick off button that could be depressed by your knee if both hands are full - depending on where you've ended up having completed the cut.
The fence still has the traditional camlock block-and-key design - providing a solid secure base that holds the fence in place when locked, whilst still allowing quick release and repositioning. As the fence on this unit is lighter than the big fence found on the 8in Jointer, this is still easily performed. The fence can be tilted up to 45° to plane bevelled edges with an integral stop built in for 45° and 90° for quick and easy adjustment.
