Man, does it ever look interesting... you could use the table saw inside... at night... with the kids in the other room, never bothered.

just saw this the first time, so it's new to me... didn't know if anyone here has one.

Yeah, Bob. That is a neat tool, but my bank wouldn't loan me enough on my house to get one.

Awful lot of money for a hand miter saw.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

curiousgeorge and AxlMyk, ya, I hear you... it is spendy, but most of the stuff at Bridge City Tools is too. Very high quality stuff, but don't think they are targeting your typical Walmart/Home Depot woodworkers in general.

FWIW... found a pretty detailed/ongoing review here:

The Complete "Jointmaker Pro" Review..... A Paradigm Shift in Woodworking

and it looks like it's been jawed about here too:

Jointmaker Pro – From Bridge City Tool Works | The Wood Whisperer Woodworking Video Podcast and Blog

BCT blog says they are working on the next generation of the tool, and if I read right... it'll be $795 compared to $1200 for the first one. Here's a video of it:

YouTube - JMP Prototype Rail System

We'll see... sure looks like a neat idea.

HaHaHa, that's funny, and probably true too! If anyone could, it would be him... didn't think about that.

I understand that the new $795 version will be available in May and has one fixed side and one moving side which lowered the cost. As the literature says-I think you would have to use this for awhile to discover the limitless creative possibilities. I'm watching Ebay for mine. The minute kerf will save me money with ivory and expensive burls.
