Very good, motor slightly underpowered

Is good value for the price but it struggles a bit with a full width plank, even if it's only a light cut. I would suggest that if you are going to do a lot of work then something a bit more beefy is worth the investment. Extra plank supports are essential.
Blade steup is fiddly but the guide provided works well.

Well built machine, fully adjustable, excellent results

I bought this machine after looking very carefully at the opposition because it offered all the features I need at a very good price. I had to adjust the infeed and outfeed tables and rollers slightly and Fraser's comments in his review were very helpful on this subject. I did however also find an online manual for this machine which goes into much more detail on adjustment and setup than the manual supplied. It's worth a look at the following link http://www.manualslib.com/manual/622058/Jet-Equipment-And-Tools-Jwp-12dx.html?page=8#manual. This is for the Australian version of the machine which has a few more features but is much the same. First impressions of the planing results are very good. I have planed some standard mahogany and some very difficult highly figured yew both with excellent results and not a hint of snipe. A quality machine highly recommended

does a good job

I have owned this machine for about 4 years now, I am very pleased with it. The machine is noisy ((it has a carbon brush motor after all) so you expect that)) if properly cared for it continues to produce a positively shiny ripple free finish on English Oak which is a very hard timber, I am so happy with it that I have bought a far cheaper Clarke 10 inch machine (of the same type) for use cleaning up re-cycled timber because I don't want to spoil my Jet machine. PS it does need some form of extractor for the chippings or it gets blocked up - which is reasonable enough

Great machine

Just have to add that the angle of the in feed and out feed tables are fully adjustable using the locking bolts under the hinges. Also there is adjustment to level these feed tables to the under cutter table using the three screws each side of the in feed / out feed tables. This is not shown in the manual supplied with the thicknesser. In my experience most machines from any manufacturer need some setting up from the box.

Needs a few tweaks to get it working smoothly!

A number of issues arose when I unpacked this machine:
1) There are a set of spare blades in the box - a really nice touch but it doesn't tell you about this in the catalog, on the website, or on the side of the box. So when I told the store assistant I would like a spare set of blades the nitwit sold me a set at £22.96 which I don't actually need - can I get a refund?
2) There are four M8X45mm bolts in the pack but nothing to tell you what they are for - I eventually worked out they are bolting the machine down should you wish to do so.
3) The manual says each turn of the crank lowers the cutterhead by 1mm. The marks on the crank say 1.6mm. The crank is right.
4) There is nothing on the crank to indicate which is up or down - so I have labelled it myself to avoid confusion.
5) When I lowered the cutter head down I found that it would not raise and had jammed solidly. Eventually I discovered that if I released the planer cover screws slightly it allowed the four columns to move a little and the crank then worked more smoothly.
6) I placed a long length of straight, planed 130mm wide ash across the bed to discover that the infeed and outfeed rollers were holding it over 2 mm above the bed. When I took a few cuts off my previously straight board I ended up with a slightly curved piece of timber which also tapered by 0.75mm across its width. The solution I have arrived at is to permanently remove both the infeed and outfeed rollers and re-leveled both the infeed and outfeed tables (slacken the 3 small screws either side and clamp the tables to two long straightedges and re-tighten). This has improved the results dramatically and the taper over the width of 130mm is now only 0.02mm which is negligible.
7) What holds the infeed and outfeed tables up when not in use? Answer - NOTHING! There are spring clips (items 121 in the parts manual) but these go nowhere near the tables - if you want them to work you will have to bend them in to shape!
8) The manual states the mains connection must have a 16amp fuse - oh no it shouldn't!
9) In the parts list the numbered items go up to 184 but the list only goes up to 151.

If you are only using this machine for joinery then the finish out of the box is probably good enough. Now that I've tweaked out the gremlins it appears that this machine may do the job I want from it which is to put a good finish on wide boards for box making - it is a great pity that a big company like Axminster can't get these little details right (or hire a proof reader for their manuals). I've bought a lot of stuff from them over the years and it's all given me very good service but sometimes only after I've tweaked and adjusted them.
