8 INCH JOINTER FAQS
Q1: Why would I choose an 8-inch jointer over a 6-inch model?
An 8-inch jointer offers a wider cutting capacity, allowing you to work with broader boards. This can be especially beneficial for projects that require larger pieces of wood.
Q2: Is an 8-inch jointer big enough?
An 8-inch jointer strikes a balance in functionality and it is the best long-term investment. While it's adequately sized for a majority of tasks, it remains manageable and not overly cumbersome. Its extended infeed and outfeed tables offer stability for bigger projects.
Q3: How often should I replace or sharpen the blades on an 8-inch jointer?
