Jointers create a level surface on lumber boards. They use two offset tables and a small, rapid blade system to plane away excess material. Use them to turn bowed or otherwise-undesirable lumber into material for decks, framing and more.
A table jointer is a large, industrial-strength tool with a long work table to accommodate the largest boards. They typically plane down boards up to 6 or 8 inches wide. Parallelogram jointers improve on the design and allow you to raise or lower the table with greater ease. They also keep the table closer to the cutter for a greater degree of accuracy. Bench jointers deliver similar performance to their larger cousins, but in a more compact design. The trade-off is that the smaller models are less stable than their counterparts.
Wood jointers have a variety of features, and each fills a specific workshop need. The longer the bed length, the longer the board that you can stably support and plane. A high-horsepower mtotor delivers more power for faster cuts. Adjustable speed settings allow you to work comfortably and safely with the blade system set to the appropriate speed selection for the size and hardness of each specific board. Tilting features let you plane a board to a specific angle, and stops in the fence make the angle planes repeatable for mass production work. Make sure to grab extra blades, as these bench and stationary accessories are vital to getting ideal results.
Jointers eliminate waste and let you use previously-unfit boards on your project. They allow you to work with certainty that you just don't get when you plane boards by hand.
