Steel City continues to flood us with granite tools, this time in the form of their 40615G jointer, a 317-lb beast that combines the traditional steel bed with a granite fence. Its 68”-long bed will make jointing those long boards easy work.
The three blades spin up to 5,000 RPM, and the cutting capacity is 6-1/8” with up to a 1/2″ cut, if you’re brave or foolish enough to try it. The 4″ by 38” granite fence has stops at 90 and 45 degrees inside and out. The 1-1/2 HP jointer is wired for 115 volts from the factory, but can be rewired to 220 volts. It comes with a chute/port and all the tools needed to maintain the jointer.
The 40615G sells for about $600.
