Well, my lovely wife presented me an early Xmas present in November so I could Umm, make Xmas presents. so I ordered the Grizlly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead.
I made a bunch of cutting boards so I ran a lot of walnut, Cherry and Maple through this jointer and it never missed a beat.
I’m not going through all the hoopla of shipping/receiving and uncrating except to say it takes two to get that aircraft carrier of a cutter up on the stand. This beast weighs in at 600 pounds and it doesn’t move an inch when pushing lumber through. It runs very quiet and is virtually vibration free. I am in love with this machine, all my jointed edges are tight, real tight.
I have the absoloute perfect wife!
