Benchtop jointer planers, bamboo furniture making training - For You

A new line of value-priced tools by Steel City is aimed at filling out the benchtop machinery market. Other tools in the new Blue Line included a couple of combination benchtop sanders as well as a collapsible, adjustable stand with support wings ($139) able to mount any of these tools.
The folks at Steel City Tools however, are rolling out a line of economical benchtop machinery suitable for the demands of the home hobbyist.
With two Asian-made models selling for half the price of European makes, even a hobby woodworker can joint and plane wide stock with one space-saving unit.


Convenience in changing from jointing to planing and back is different but about equal from machine to machine. But just as with hot dogs, typically sold in packages of 10, and buns, sold in 8-packs, the math doesn't add up: Jointers commonly come in 6" and 8" widths, while planers start at 12". And second, the prices of the Asian-made models nearly equal the prices of stand-alone 12" jointers, so it's like getting the planer for free. Fences on European machines mount more like a Biesemeyer-style tablesaw fence on one end of the jointer bed.


Two-piece tables require removing the fence before tipping the tables out of the way, and you may have to move the dust hose to a different port on the machine to serve the planer.
