I orderd a Grizzly G0656P and it will be here on thursday. I was going to buy a used 6” model and alot of people said they wish they had an 8” wide jointer. Well comeing from an old Craftsman 6 1/8 thats 1/2 hp to a 8” 3hp it`s a big jump for me. I guess ill skip the tent sale in P.A. ( spent my cash) till next time.

Well upsf found my base and I went and picked it up, man UPSF is a shakie outfit. but anyways it`s all set and works fine, I am glad I went with the 8”. This is very well built jointer, if all Grizzly tools are this well made I my sell my 14” jet bandsaw and upgrade to a 17-19” bandsaw.
