So I'm gonna buy a jointer. I need one for an upcoming progect (see older thread 'dovetails in fir?')
For this project I can easily get away with a 6". A few folks are telling me to go with 8". I think that for 90% of what I do, 6" will be fine, especially given that a 6" jointer is half the price of an 8. Any of you that have had jointers for a few years that can offer suggestions? My old cabinet shop had an 8", but in my current profession, if I ever need a jointer at all, mostly is just to join boards, not straighten faces. Any thoughts and advice on what I might expect/want in the future?
If you've had a 6", in which circumstances have you been disappointed with it?
Thanks in advance
