No, I do not currently have a benchtop jointer. I would like one because the jointer that I do have is only a 4" model.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

I have had a Delta 37-070 bench top for some 5 years. It has always been loud, loud, loud, but in the last year there is a 0.05" bow in the center of everything. I've gone through the adjustments without full success. This isn't horrible for items going to the planer, but not good for edge gluing stuff like cutting boards.

Bench top is all that will fit in my garage shop and is fine for what I make.

Enter me!

Steve.

A bench top unit would be big enough for the work I currently do and would give some much needed space in the shop.

I don't have a jointer because my shop size is limited and they were always too big and took up a lot of room. The idea of a bench top jointer is appealing and perfect for the projects I do.

I currently have have a 25 yr old (approx) Ryobi 6" bench top jointer. It has served me fine (not a ton of use) but is extremely loud and would like to replace with another bench top unit, as my shop is a quite small 13' square area in the basement. Thanks for the opportunity!

I have a freestanding 70's era 6" Craftsman...would love a benchtop unit that could outperform my current one with a smaller presence in my shop...not to mention that I bet it is quieter too.

Great contest! There should be a skill testing question(?)...
I won't enter 'cause I have nowhere to put it, and I'm sure I'd win.

I don't have a jointer yet and think a bench type would help my situation as I've maxed out my line of credit after listening to you guys on the forum , and now there's no room for a full size one with all the other crap in the way

Wait...what?!!! You did that all by yourself. (If you had listened to me , you'd be married by now and she'd be controlling your spending... ;0 )
