These jointers are good options for any workshop, whether you are a hobbyist or take projects more seriously. Read through these reviews to see what the positives and negatives are for each model.
Both the Powermatic and Grizzly jointers are full-size machines that stand on the floor. The Jet is designed to be mounted on a bench top. This is one major thing to consider when you make a decision – how much room do you have and what will fit into your workshop?
The premium pick is the Powermatic – it has the best feedback overall and is made in the USA. The Grizzly also gets good feedback but is cheaper. The Jet has mixed feedback, but read the reviews to learn why before discounting it completely.
