Man – Congrats! I just went over to Grizzly to see which one that was and it is a sweet looking machine!

I have had great service with my Grizzly 8” spiral head jointer. It has such a great cut. I can only imagine how great it would be to have the 12”. I have dreamed of it every now and then, but alas, my budget and space constraints will not tolerate it:(

yeah I came real close to buying the General International ” paralelllogram 8” jointer but I decided to try this machine. If it can get me by for three to four years then I ‘ll be extremely happy. If it last somebody for ten or twenty years than that will have been a smart purchase.

Congratulations on your new jointer, I kinda resemble that feeling, having bought items that might or might
not be perfect for the shop. From the looks of that machine and the description, it should still be going
strong 50 years from now. Have fun with this new toy and please keep us posted.
