Steve,

This is Doug Davenport the managing partner at Cutech LLC. We currently have our website setup to only handle UPS shipment to the lower 48 states due to we occasionally run promotions that include free shipping in the lower 48 states. We can manually handle shipping to Alaska and Hawaii as well as Canada. Sorry for the confusion Mike was not aware of that.

Also check our website tomorrow for our Fall Specials, on our 40300H-CT and this jointer Model 40160H-CT. We are offering free shipping in the lower 48 States and for you guys in Alaska, Hawaii and Canada contact us via email or calling customer service for our UPS shipping rates. Thanks

Good timing on this Mike/Doug. My Delta bench top 6" is somehow out of adjustment and slight bow in the center of the board happens. Even without the bow, the noise is ugly, just like all knife jointers and fixing that would be awesome.

This size (bench top) jointer is not for every purpose. The rule of thumb for a jointer is that the maximum length of wood should be equal or less than 2 times the length of the jointer, so my 30" (infeed thru outfeed) Delta should be capable of a 60" board. I have found that 48" can be counted on for good results. Now, floor mounted 4 hp cast iron beasts can have additional infeed and outfeed added.

Steve.

John,

All I can tell you is that is how they are packaged and come from the factory. I'm guessing that the plastic containers are an off the shelf item from their source and that's how they buy them. Never hurts to have a few extra if you are like me I tend to wear one side out before the other so don't have to replace all of them at once.

I have a couple of questions!

Are these tools re-badged Steel City Tool stock that was left over? If so, what about parts and service after the stock is depleted.? I noticed that the link to the parts available only lists part for the planers and nothing for the jointer.

If these are re-badged SCT stock, then I would hesitate to purchase these tools. I was getting ready to jump on a SCT planer just before they announced the closure. I am so glad that I did not waste my money.

I talked to a SCT retailer and they did not have any notice themselves of the closure. In addition, SCT would not supply them with replacement parts to service their customers. So, what are we in store for with Cutech when the stock depletes. I did a search for Cutech on the Home Depot site and it shows a Cutech jointer, which is not the same model, as discontinued. So, is Home Depot carrying Cutech tools or not?

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

I would think an aluminum head and steel screws may become an issue from electrolysis/galvanic reactions at some point in time especially since no repair parts are listed on the website......
the 10 count cutters remind me of BB blister pack packaging...

tell me more about the motor...
Direct or belt drive???...

a bit of discrepancy....

At about 40 lbs, and with a 120 VOLT 12 AMP motor, it’s tough and easy to transport the job site if necessary. Push blocks and the tools necessary for rotating or replacing the cutter tips are included!

Features

Powerful 10 Amp 120V motor

Helical Cutterhead with 12 HSS Inserts
Fence with 90 to 135 Degree Tilt
Level adjustable beds

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Looks like somebody needs to proofread their descriptions.

In looking at the reviews I saw that there were only two reviewers. Both were Five Star ratings. I see that the second reviewer is Doug from Lexington KY. When I first read Mike's review and saw he got a like I checked the persons profile. It was a member named Doug from Lexington KY. Now it turns out to be the Cutech owner/principle. Is the reviewer on the Cutech website the same person?

I don't fault a person for being their own first reviewer. It's a bit like a bartender putting their own dollar in the jar to start things out.
