    Default Just bought this

    For squaring up neck blanks.
    Arrived 2 hours ago...took 30 mins to set up and it works great ...better than the belt sander and a lot less dusty. 8A79BD65-B004-40EE-BAF9-D9C9DCBA9F6C by Ken Timms, on Flickr

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Jointers are very useful tools, for sure. I have a 1953-ish 6" short bed Delta Rockwell jointer that gets plenty of use.

    We call these “ Planers” over here In the UK because they replace the hand plane.....Why do you call them jointers ?

    I sort of concur that the jointer is called what it is (in the US) because it does the work of a jointer plane. On the other hand, when using hand planes to flatten the face of a board, I don't use a jointer plane. I usually use No. 5 and 6 planes for that.

    In NZ, we use planer (most common) and jointer (less common) but also call them buzzers.
