works just fine!

I'm a 4th generation woodworker and make a living building furniture and cabinets and keep 6 people employed doing the same, so I would say i'm qualified to give a review. We have big jointer that cost 4 g's and needed two smaller ones in the fab shop for small projects. This tool for the money is GREAT! yes you have to make some adjustments, but event he most expensive power matic tools I have needed adjustments when I first received them. The fence is easily shimmed out by adding some washers BEHIND the fence, problem solved and the infeed table IS ADJUSTABLE. The tool does come with the allen wrench needed and if you have a woodshop that you need a jointer for you should have some allen wrenches anyway. I suspect that some of the bad reviews come from people that don't understand the money spent on a tool is for a TOOL not to have something that will do the work for you. If used properly this jointer works beautifully especially for the money, on sale around 160 bucks. FOR THE BAD REVIEWS, YOU PROBABLY ARE USING THE TOOL WRONG, THIS IS A JOINTER NOT A THICKNESS PLANER, IF YOU ARE TAKING 3/4 OR 5/4 STOCK DOWN TO SIZE YOU NEED A THICKNESS PLANER, EVEN IF IT IS ONLY 2" WIDE STOCK. You need to use the right tool for the right job. Remember, all tools need adjustments and maintenance and only do what they are designed to do, there are no "do all" tools. This tool is designed to smooth the EDGES of boards up to around 30", it's not a thickness planer and is not designed to edge boards that are 12' long. If you cannot make the adjustments to make this tool work well then you probably are trying to work well beyond your experience, start with a hammer and nail!

Craftsman joiner/planer

I purchased this joiner about a year ago. It has preformed well. However, last week I broke the blade guard. I have tried to order a new one and found out the part I needed has been discontinued. A $11.06 part is preventing me from using a $250 machine. Avoid, Avoid, Avoid. I am finding out that the Craftsman name is not as honorable as it once was.

Wasted my money, don't waste yours.

My first thought when I bought this planer was, why on earth would they use granite. Sure enough, something fell on it and cracked the out feed table and fence within 36 hours of me purchasing it. Aside from that, this definitely isn't for jointing anything over 2 feet long and even that's pushing it. I tried running 6 foot lengths over it and had a person on the out feed helping to stabilize and the planks were more uneven after than they were before.

All it's supposed to be

Unit isn't priced like or built like the $1,000 jointers. It's ideal if you have a small shop and occasionally joint boards. Unit was aligned properly right out of the box and has worked well.

Craftsman 4-1/8" jointer. This is one hardy little jointer.

|

Very good for unit for the price and size. I was skeptical with the granite surfaces, but it held up well and cuts very square. I see plenty of comments regarding the fence being set too far back; and I could see that happening. However, a couple of washers seems a small price to pay for this hardy little jointer. Mine was on clearance for $115 so I couldn't pass it up. I am glad I have it.

Not bad

Just like other informative reviews I found the fence needed help, on mine it would not get to 90, was about 88 due to the adjustment hold down did not have enough travel, nothing to do with the end point adjustment, so I shimmed the top with 2 washers and bottom with 1, now it goes from 92 to 45. The tool itself worked great, a few passes at 1/32 and my acrylic was ready to be joined/glued. And it was much quieter than expected, more than my friends porter by alot. Love the granite table/fence. I picked mine up at Sears to make sure I got one that was not broken. If this lasts it will be a very good bargain .

Good value, workmanship is good as is the finish, not a high production machine, but very appropriate for home workshop. Just what I was looking for. Would not hesitate to recommend.
