I just took delivery of this jointer (40160H) and the 40300H planer. Between the sale prices on both and the free shipping, I feel that I got a heck of a deal. Cutech shipped the same day I ordered and I received my items in just two days. Boxes arrived in great shape. The ordering/shipping experience could not have been better.

I also ordered a spare pack of the HSS inserts, just in case. I will add that one thing that really appealed to me was that the planer and jointer both use the same inserts. I like that interoperability between the tools. Sort of like a Dewalt 18V battery fits all their 18V tools. Nice to not have to stock two flavors of replacement inserts.

As I very recently moved, my garage/shop isn't even set up yet, so I don't have any place to really test them...but don't worry, I'll make room.

I have family obligations today and I need to get the shop squared away...at least operational b/c right now it isn't. But I will post my thoughts on these tools eventually. I have needed a jointer and planer for a long time and was waiting until I moved to get them. The review of the jointer here on Routerforums, combined with the sale prices pushed my buttons enough to take a chance. I think I'll be pleased but we'll see what happens.

Thanks, Mike, for posting your review.

Welcome to the forum Mike. We look forward to your review.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Was was recently looking at a similar Delta. I say "similar" because the rear fence appears to be identical. I did not get it because when I pushed against the fence, it would flex. That seems contrary to the core function of a jointer. So my question is -- has this fence been reinforces so that it is not movable? At first glance it does not appear so, but I could be wrong.

Collin,
It will flex, if you push hard enough. I do not plan on pushing that hard while I am milling my stock. You will also be registering against the fence, not just in one spot.
I just started using mine, and so far have not had any issues with the fence.

We bought this jointer for our furniture design shop as a quick/cheap replacement after our larger powermatic crapped out during a move. It has been running for 3 days of sporadic use now. Far quieter than the previous jointer. 2.5" dust port hooked to a large dust collector looks to be keeping chips under control. Finish on everything from Redwood to Walnut is glossy smooth, with only a slight ridge remaining from small gaps between the individual blades.

Came with two plastic/foam push handles. Milled marks on infeed and outfeed surfaces are my only aesthetic complaint. Easy to adjust cut depth. Guage is one of the easiest to see and read of any machine I've used so far.

The short beds keep us from using it on long (4'+) boards. It's a short jointer. Don't buy it if you have long boards to join. If you need a short jointer I highly recommend this one. Price is fair. Delivery was quick to N.E. Kansas. I'll be buying one for my own small indoor shop soon.
