Good ole' WillyF is at the foot of this japanese jointer..Joey81 suspects a Geisha...it is in fact a Sumo wrestler in camouflage.
I think i was a woodworker in my previous life...and the life previous to that.

Doc, the blade is actually 10mm x 70mm x 254mm. Mga 10 years or more bago mapalitan yan kahit full load ka pa. Ang tibay nyan at matagal maupod. My 12" jointer blade w/c is actually Nagoya brand, I got in 1998 and has gone thru at least around 50,000 bdft of wood per year and I still haven't replaced it. The blade has at least 20% spent from whence i got it.

Just finished a few test cuts using Hammer A3-31 silent power version. The blade cuts were smooth and clean, the noise level is pretty low for this tool.
Switching from Jointer to Planer is quick. Cuttings made by helical blades are easily pick up by dust collector

The issues: The fence support is not very solid although angle adjustment is Ok.
Pricey.

Inquired from felderusa & received a reply from their distributor in Cebu. Surprise surprise, the distributor has no website but felderusa directs your inquiry to their nearest reseller, in this case Cebu. The guy has 1 unit in stock which, after eyeballing it, triggered an excessive compulsive disorder.
I dont know how to post picture directly but

specs and photos available at hammerusa dot com

@ricmoclip
Saw your Facebook page. You have some mean machines there. For someone who just started woodworking barely two years ago, you really dove into it. How's your workshop coming along?
I'd rather add life to my years than years to my life.

@balarila
Workshop is functional but progress is really slow for a 1-man shop. Had an opportunity to practice/learn making some cabinets which includes drawer installation, pocket screw method, and spray painting. Still have a long way to go for a newbie carpenter. I thought woodworking only deals with wood, it turned out you need to learn wood finishing/painting, CAD among others. While I'm still employed, will try to accumulate some tools for this vice :)....I'm born with clumsy hands so will try to back it up with tools.
