I'm looking at the bridgewood bw-16j jointer. Does anyone out there own or have experience with this jointer. Opinions (first hand) of the bridewood line in general also helpful.

Bridgewood is a good solid company with good support. Done a lot with the 16" planer and 12" jointer. Good machines. I'd look at the Invicta jointers as well. Used machines are a good value if you own a good straight edge and can tinker. I picked an Oliver 16" for $1750 once. Had to have the tables ground and a few other things but I do machines for a living. Buying from a dealer will cost more but could be cheaper if you don't have machine shop resources.
