On my Griz 6” it’s 1 nut that holds the fence on.

Remove fence (easy for 1 person)

Then there’s 4 bolts holding the jointer to the base.
Remove the 4 bolts
... or was it studs sticking out the bottom of the jointer? .... hmmmm…. ok so it might be removing 4 nuts from inside the base. Can’t remember. Either way, that’s easy enough.

Remove belt

Lift jointer off base. Easy for TWO people. If it’s got studs sticking out the bottom, you can set it on 2×4s.

Base with motor can lay down or stand up. It’s not that tall.

When I bought mine (new) I did all of the assembly alone EXCEPT I had my son come out and help me horse the jointer onto the base.
