Nik,
I bought a C.M.T. finger jointer about twelve years ago, I still use it regularly, as when joining you will tend to use only a certain number of prescribed thicknesses, take your time in setting up, get it right and then save a set up piece for the next time, I have a number and find it so very easy to get it right first time now. Good luck with it.



A friend is a good egg even if they are slightly cracked!

UKP36 seems more realistic than the UKP160 they formerly charged for it.

Cheers
