Welp, broke down an ordered a new jointer. Received it just yesterday. This is basically an attachment to a multi-tool I have (similar to the shopsmith). After spending a few hrs reading the directions, started to assemble and next thing I know, I see blood on my table, couldn't figure out what happened. I ended up taking a nasty chunk out of the end of my finger. That's when I remembered why I usually wear gloves. So... with a bit of hurt pride, got the jointer up and running, still have a few tweaks to do but... now only have to wait til it starts warming up a bit more and my finger heals up some.

Hey Ken,
Proud for you on your new jointer. I just got mine about a month ago. We have just gotten one of (if not) the most dangerous tools in the shop. So I guess the finger incident is a reminder just how dangerous. Hope your finger heals OK and you enjoy using the new jointer (Safely).
