    FYI, Country of origin is Taiwan. Not a hater, was curious myself. Noticed a lot of similarities with other brands. Look like a nice piece of equipment.

  2. mlaboy43 on June 19, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    I don’t have a jointer, but I was wondering if you needed to press the flattened edge against the fence when jointing the second edge to ensure it is perpendicular. I have seen people do it this way, but I don’t think you did in the video. Just curious if it is necessary

  3. mr. scout on June 19, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I am 12 years old and everything on my Christmas list is woodworking tools It would be so awesome to have all the tools and a big shop like you.

  4. John Bernard on June 19, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Hey Andy is that a crack I saw on the outfeed table on the jointer.

  5. Eddie Grathwohl on June 19, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    I wish I had that much space. Love the work.

  6. Lawrence Archery on June 19, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Congrats Andy. Those are some sweet machines.

    Is it really an Oliver when it’s made in some offshore factory?

  9. zephyr1408 on June 19, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Andy I really enjoy your channel and content! I am a Finish/Custom Carpenter Contractor and hv learned just tons from your content on joinery and building fine furniture pieces!
    So thank you very much !
    Also what a nice little family you hv God Bless! I raised 5 kids 2 mine, 2 my sisters, & one Foster boy!

    They R gone now & fine ! I am alone and sometimes still wake up thinking I hear them😪

    I am convinced God knew your need to feed your family and sent the “Oliver’s “ over to help👊

    WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU NOT LOVE THE HELIX? THEY DO COST MORE, BUT THE MAINT IS SO WORTH IT! If I can put a Helix on my machines I will absolutely be doing it. Already did my Jointer, WOW! the Noise alone is worth it, plus the satisfaction of Ease of cut and purity of cut. THE ONLY WAY TO GO! Hands down!

  11. Myles Thomson on June 19, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Nice machines. One day.

  12. RainDog222222 on June 19, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    you’re a pitchman for Oliver, that’s obvious. saying whatever they want you to say. the question is, what else are you beyond that? what’s left of you, your voice, that hasn’t been absorbed by Oliver’s money?

  13. K Coop on June 19, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Do you run 3phase in your shop or do you have vfd’s on your equipment. Still love that old Oliver bandsaw you have.

  14. Adam Chesis on June 19, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    Those are named Oliver, they’re not Oliver, they bought the name, The real company made some of the finest machinery ever made, They were made in MI, all that stuff now is made in china it’s not even close to the same.

  15. Drone Maverick on June 19, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Your channel is super cool Andy! Every man looks at your shop and would love a place like yours to build wood projects! 🪚 🔨 ⚒️

  16. Kevin Morley on June 19, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Very cool, I didn’t actually know Oliver was still in buisness.

  17. c-money on June 19, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Crying green green green tears of envy

  18. Bart Loncke on June 19, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    I see quite a lot of US woodworkers in their tiny garage using a separate jointer and planer, what about the use of combined machines (jointer-planers) in the States? Are they just not readily available or just not that popular? All you’d need is the footprint of a jointer as the planer sits underneath. As for Andy Rawls and his olympic stadium sized workshop, I fully understand though why he has two separate machines.

  19. Andrew R on June 19, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Does the jointer have a mobile base, or wheels?

  20. Kevin Willis on June 19, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    whats the footpedal for? off switch?

  21. Damir Lorca on June 19, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    the top of the line machines, very cool man you deserve it and i love the video!

  22. Nate D on June 19, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    That jointer sure is a nice upgrade from your Jet combo machine..

  23. West World on June 19, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    “Hey, you wanna keep those tools? Cool, make a video about how good they are!”
    -Oliver 😂

  24. DavesNotHere on June 19, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    This is like someone showing me how great their Ferrari 458 is.

  25. Dana Skubic on June 19, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Nice stuff, jealous as all get out. Thanks for sharing.

  26. Tim Halcomb on June 19, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Thanks for sharing the information nice machine you have a blessed day in the name of Jesus

  27. franco lezzi on June 19, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    *Been waiting to get one for a while **MyBest.Tools** Love it and easy to use. Braced pieces and ran thru on edges. Solid product. Still using my hand planer.*

  28. Matt Bowers on June 19, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    Nice machines, likely will outlast you and I combined!

  29. Andy Rawls on June 19, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    Thanks for tuning in and let me know if you have any questions regarding the process or the machines!

  30. Sean Schade on June 19, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    16” jointer…drool 😎

  31. Patrick Davies on June 19, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    I’m a little amazed that they still make jointers with the rabbet shelf. I don’t know anyone that uses them myself.

    That’s why the depth will go to 3/4”.

  32. twoweary on June 19, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Beautiful, quality machines. Do you still have the machine that spits out S4S boards in one shot ?

  33. Marty Schlosser on June 19, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Andy, I’m always amazed with your ability to clearly communicate your wealth of woodworking knowledge. Thanks for covering the many features of these two most important woodworking machines with us!

    What I understand is that the original Oliver Equipment Company went out of business. In the 1990’s(?) some young guys purchased the brand and some remaining stock and tried to make a go of it. I don’t remember names but, I met them in the Los Angeles area. Looking at the Oliver webpage, I see a bunch of Asian manufactured equipment painted an updated Oliver Blue. Admittedly, It does look to be good quality and have some nice new features but it is not the century old equipment company.

  36. Meneer Struijk on June 19, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    Nice bandsaw 😎

  37. James Moore on June 19, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    How is the snipe on the planer? I had planed on upgrading soon and was going to get a fixed head.

  38. Jeff May on June 19, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Congratulations on the new gear! Love your channel, keep up the good work

  39. Gian Endo on June 19, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    nice work
    i want to be woodworking but don’t have tools:(

  40. Dylan Sousa on June 19, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Good video

  41. Mike Taylor on June 19, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Thanks. Are they 220 or 3 phase?

  42. Roy Reynolds on June 19, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Some time when you get a chance, go over to Keith Rucker’s channel at VintageMachinery.org where he rebuilt an Oliver planer run off of a flat belt. It is about 100 years old if not older.

  43. Keith Spencer Sr. on June 19, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Beautiful lumber

  44. Andy Novak on June 19, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    I think you just convinced me I need these tools. I’m in the process of building my my wood shop. would you recommend having three phase in the shop?

  45. BlessedHusband on June 19, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Those look amazing! I’m over here drooling and hoping I can afford something like that someday.

  46. Micheal Maj on June 19, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Nice video. I liked the demo part before explaining the particulars about the machines. I was extremely lucky to find a factory owned 2015 model with a 6” wide table and have been waiting for a week for delivery, due on 13th. Recently, I’ve found real enjoyment cutting logs into lumber, making a white oak family table, maybe I can continue this as a business when I retire from the military in 2 years (27 total).

    Could you recommend a plainer model that aligns with the jointer I have coming? Something that will make up for any shortcomings I may run into with the 6” jointer.

  47. Robert London on June 19, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Really liking the 16” jointer. Only thing I question is why the hand wheel is so low on the 20” planer. Oliver’s 16 inch model is much higher up. Leaning over and bending down to turn the crank would get annoying, at least for me.

  48. Matt in the Hat on June 19, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Could you manage with just the jointer? It seems to me that the planer is good if you want to preserve an edge but get two faves faces parallel. But if you’re looking for square lumber you could just joint each face off the last. Would that give similar results to using both machines?

  49. Rod Yoakum on June 19, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    I’m Glade You Have Been So Blessed
