Do blades have indexing holes?

Asked by Andy May 28, 2021
3
Answers

Blade replacement is ingenious! First, they are double-sided. So, when they wear out you rotate them horizontally and now you have new cutting surfaces. There is a magnetic T-handle on top of the planer, which is the only tool that you'll need. The blades can only be inserted one way onto pins. Replacement blades are "readily" available and come in a set of 3 (with 6 cutting surfaces). The instruction manual explains it very well and you will only need to consult it for blade replacement once. Incidentally, taking small bites at a time prolongs blade life. Also, the slower, smoother, planer speed puts less stress on the blades. A sign of blade dullness is when the rollers have trouble pulling in the workpieces.

Why did the price on this jump up so much?

check the price on Grizzly, which I think is little better machine

Is this planer still in production? I have looked all over and cannot find any available. It seems to be a good investment for the price.

You've waited a week and no Rigid Tech has responded? Egregious. Find a Woodworking Forum, ask there, and point out how long it took Rigid to (not) respond.

Best budget jointer
Assembly took about 2 hours with one person but I would recommend having a second person as some of these pieces are extremely heavy. After assembly, squaring of the fence was easy enough using a youtube video. after squaring it worked flawless. adjustment screws on the fence allows for quick adjustments between 90 degrees, 45 and 10 degrees. So far I've used pine material with no issues. edges are square as they should be. For such a large piece of equipment it is fairly quiet until your material goes into it. Cutting adjustments are a breeze with the adjustment knob. I will be adding a mobile base as this thing is heavy and can be out of balance after moving a lot. This is a must for small woodshops and entry level businesses alike.

It's a great Jointer! I bought this from Home Depot in December 2020. I have a Rigid table saw and I am very happy with it so when I went to buy a Jointer I went with the Rigid and I'm so glad I did. The directions were very easy to follow. It took me about 2 hours to set up. It is heavy and I have a small shop so I ended up installing the Bora Universal mobile base kit on it. I would recommend doing this if you have to move it around.

Nice machine, it’s made in Taiwan, I've had it for just about a month. Assembly went well. A word of caution, review the instructions before removing the cast iron from the box, as they advise setting the in-feed / out-feed casting, on 4 X 4’s; there is a standing roll pin that acts as a stop for the rotating safety guard, so don’t set it down on a flat surface as this roll pin could get damaged. You'll also want a fuller compliment of tools than their suggested list, i.e. sockets, long extensions etc. Once I had it assembled I flipped on the switch and it came right on, curiously I came back a little later and flipped on the switch and it didn’t move, I got a electrical hum as the motor was stuck. Checking the motor turned freely by hand, to resolve the problem I had to adjust the belt tension (loosen) and then got it going – I let it run for several minutes, no problems since. Out of the box I had no problems with flatness or parallelism of the in-feed to out-feed, and once the fence was set to 90, checking with a Brown & Sharp Square it repeats to 90, my test piece was nice and square. You do want a good dust collector, mine is rated at 750 cfm. For the money the jointer it’s a 5 star machine.

This jointer was easy to assemble and easy to use. Found it easier to assemble by assembling the base then installing the top but other than that I would recommend to anyone needing or looking for a midsize plainer

Easy assembly and mirror smooth cuts! I bought this jointer in part based on the May 2020 Wood magazine review, where it was ranked as a very good performer and the top value. The assembly instructions were clear and well written, pictures were helpful, parts clearly identified, and everything was packed securely. I put the whole thing together by myself in a little more than an hour. Having another person would have been helpful at a couple of points, but obviously not essential. Once assembled, it is very sturdy. It needed a very minor and easy adjustment to the 90 degree stop on the fence, but the tables were perfect out of the box. I've run just a few boards through it so far, but it made quick work on some very dense 2" by 6" burr oak. The boards were rough cut and some were a bit warped and twisted. A few passes over the jointer and the sides and faces really are mirror smooth. Even the 6 inch face of this tough wood did not bog the motor down at all. I put together a 6 inch PVC dust collector fitting to hook up to my dust collector system. It easily mounts using the threaded mounts on the jointer, and grabs all the shavings. Even though I haven't had it long or used it much, I think this is a great tool at a great price.

I bought this based on the overall positive review. I've used mine about 6 times so far and out of the box this is a beast. Both in feed and outfeed came aligned correctly from the factory and the fence gets aligned by you. I took my time and mine perfect within. 001" you literally have to spend twice as much to get anything close to this. The unit is heavy and does a good job. If you are using bug heavy slabs I suggest anchors to the floor.

This is my first jointer and so far, I love it. I just got it a few days ago and have edge jointed quite a few boards already. In the last 5 months or so I have begun to get serious about woodworking. Before getting this jointer I was edge jointing boards on my table saw using a jig I made. It worked pretty well but if the board was longer than four feet or so it was quite cumbersome. Using this jointer is so much easier, although I'm sure longer boards would still be difficult, but a lot easier than on the tablesaw. Today I edge jointed the boards for the lower cabinet of a gun cabinet I am making. When I was finished the jointed edges basically disappeared when I put them together for a test fit. That's the way it should be and so much easier than using a jig with a tablesaw, and undoubtedly a bit more accurate. I considered buying a bench top model but I reconsidered because they are too lightweight, short in length, and would be cumbersome for any board longer than 30 inches or so. My thought was, that if any tool in my shop could benefit from being a little bigger and a lot heavier, a jointer would be that tool. So I pulled the trigger on this rather than a baby bench top model and I am so glad I did. It didn't hurt that it was on sale for $100 off either. At full price it would have been harder to talk myself into it. Assembly is a piece of cake for a big strong young buck, but I am almost 63 years old with two bad knees who is just trying to not catch the Coronavirus so I was afraid to even have my neighbor help out. But I am stubborn and persistent, and I was able to do it myself by taking all the pieces out of the box except for the table itself, going slow and thinking my way through it. Quality seems to be quite good, maybe not what you would expect from a $5000 industrial model, but for $599 I am not complaining. Out of all my other stationary power tools, with none of them being bargain basement quality, but not high end, Festool type quality either, this tool has by far the most solid and precise feel to it. I would definitely buy this again and highly recommend it.
