I recently bought the Ryobi jointer. It works great and is small and light
enough to put away after you use it. It has a chip collection hole to
attach to you shop vac or whatever. I would definitely consider getting
the extension tables. I made my own, but before I did the beds were too
short to joint boards longer than 2.5 feet. The extension tables have
rollers on them and bolt right on to the jointer. I bought the jointer
from Tarhill Filing in Raleigh NC. The cost including shipping was $314.
This is their regular price. I think the extension tables are about 38 bucks.
I don't have the number for Tarhill Filing but they advertise in Fine
Woodworking every issue. I used to live in Raleigh last year and can tell
you that these guys are reliable and have the best prices. I ordered it
with a visa card and it came in 3 days.
Now which bandsaw should i buy?
