If you’re having trouble getting tight joints, square corners, and flat surfaces, chances are you’re either having a jointer problem or you’re without a jointer, writes Charley Robinson. He explains a jointer’s attributes and talks about the trade-offs of selecting various sizes of machine. He looks at ten 6-in. machines and compares them for assembly, adjustment, cutterheads and knives, fence mechanisms, motors, drive trains, and overall performance. He explains how they work and how to adjust them effectively. You’ll find out if more money buys a better machine. From Fine Woodworking #115
