As promised, I am blogging today about a new piece of equipment that I just purchased for the shop. It will amaze some to know that I have never owned a jointer. It was never a matter of not wanting one; no, it was that I wasn’t able to find the one I was after. What is the one? A Porter 20” Jointer, and I have been hunting for it for the past 15 years.
During that time, I have come across a couple of them. However, something always seemed to interfere with the actual acquisition of one. So, I continued to do all of my jointing by hand. Not a bad way to do it, but a jointer sure would have made life easier.
