BTW, you can probably arrange with the shipper to pick up the griz from a local delivery hub if there is one nearby. That is what I ended up doing, as the warehouse was right near work for me.

You mentioned a coplanar issue on Grizzlys. This is not uncommon on many jointers, and dealing with it on a jointer with dovetail ways can be a pain. That is the main reason I went with the 490, as it is much easier to deal with this on a parallelogram jointer. I did have to make an adjustment, and it wasn’t pain free, but it was a lot easier than trying to shim your way to perfection.
