Jointer Planers

Jointer planers are essential for any wood worker. They are the only tool that

can be used to mill rough stock four square and clean up a sawn edge.

A jointer works by planing a small amount (1/32" to 1/16") of wood from one face or edge. Consisting of an infeed and outfeed table a jointer uses a series of cutting knives mounted onto a cylinder to remove wood. The infeed table is set for the depth of the cut by being lowered in relation to the cutting knives and the outfeed table.

Jointers are classified by the width of their cutting knives. A 6" jointer has cutting knives 6" long and that is the maximum width of wood they will accept.
