I got my new (old) jointer delivered today. I got really lucky and ran into a guy that actually wanted to trade his 8” Grizzly jointer for a smaller version. So we traded straight across (I had a newer 6” Grizzly.) I definitely got the good end of the deal. But he was a contractor who wanted a jointer that he could move and store more easily.
I still need to bolt the jointer to the base and then clean, align, sharpen, and tune it. I also need to convert the motor from 220v to 110v so I can use it.
Man this thing is huge! It Dwarfs my table saw. It doesn’t fit under the wink of my table saw like the 6” jointer did. I really don’t have room for it right now but Within a month or two I am going to expand my shop.
Finally I will be able to FACE joint wider boards!
