Shopsmith 4" Jointer
Since Jointers are frequently referred to as Jointer/Planers, they're one of the most misunderstood of all woodworking machines. Here's the straight scoop.

What you'll do with your new
Shopsmith Jointer

Jointers are used to smooth and square board edges in preparation for glue-up into wider panels... mostly for cabinet and furniture projects. Thickness Planers, on the other had, are used to bring boards to a precise, pre-determined thickness by shaving their surfaces and making them parallel with one another.

So, can you "thickness" on a Jointer? The answer is yes - and - no. Although a Jointer will plane and smooth surfaces (no wider than its knives), since they offer no provisions for keeping one surface of your stock parallel with the other, true "thicknessing" isn't normally a job for the Jointer.

How big should a Jointer be? If its going to be used primarily for planing the edges of boards (with only an occasional need to surface narrow stock) - and since few people work with stock thicker than 4" - why pay for capacities you don't need?

Here are a few other jobs your Shopsmith Jointer will handle quite nicely:

Bevel or Chamfer Edges Form Precision Edge Rabbets and Tongues
Bevel or Chamfer Edges - Create smooth, precisely beveled or chamfered edges on boards for angled cabinetry; making decorative interior or exterior columns; creating a bowl or vase glue-up for lathe turning; or cooperage (barrel/container-making) projects. No sanding required!

Eliminate Cupping - Boards are often cupped or hollow on one side. As long as they're no wider than 4", you can eliminate this cupping with a few light Jointer passes. This will, of course, change board thickness.

Square Large Stock - Squaring large (thick) stock on a table saw can often tax its capabilities... especially with resinous woods. Use your Jointer to deliver a perfect 90° angle on stock up to 4" thick every time. No sanding required!

Form Precision Edge Rabbets & Tongues - (up to 3/8" deep) - Form a perfect, 90° rabbet or tongue (for tongue-and-groove joints) along the edge of a board with your Shopsmith Jointer. No sanding required!

Tapering - Just clamp a stop block to your Jointer's Fence and you can cut perfect tapers for table legs, stair or deck posts and more. No sanding required!

Create Octagonal Columns or Posts - Just set the Jointer Fence at 45° and make a series of passes to pre-round square stock for Lathe-spindle turning... or to create perfect octagonal columns or posts. No sanding required!
