Need a joiner--rent, buy used, etc.
I'm thinking of building a table, and the one piece of equipement that I really need to build it is a joiner. Last time I built a table, it turned out pretty well. That was about 35 years ago and I took a summer woodworking class at a high school shop. They don't seem to do that anymore, at least not around here (Montgomery Co., MD). Amazon has an inexpensive joiner for $130, from Sunbelt, (not the right name, but something like it). It has one good review, promising, but not much to go on. There's craigslist, locally there's one available for $175, but I would probably have to rent a pickup to haul it. Is it possible to rent one? I just don't know anyone who is that into woodworking that they would have a joiner. Any ideas? Thanks, Steve
