6-in. Jointers

jointer is a must-have for many woodworkers. Few can do without the smooth, straight edges and faces they get from their jointers. We tested twelve 6-in. floor models that sell for under $600. A 6-in. jointer will handle material up to 6-in. wide, the width of the cutter head. A 6-in....
