Grizlly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

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!

She’s a keeper…and the jointer isn’t half bad either.

Congratulations on new jointer, I have this jointer also, other than the original setup, this has been a gem. Also on a safety note, pay attention, use good safety push blocks, respect the 8” cutter head that is always exposed at end of cut.

I just recently bought the 6” version – not enough room for the 8” that I wanted. I love mine too. Congratulations on a great new tool, and a very generous and thoughtful wife!

I started to buy the 6” but after a few minutes decided on the 8”, I knew I wouldn’t be satisfied with the 6”. I wanted a 12” but space and lack of funds ended that idea.

I use my 8” in a garage so maneuverability is tight but a little seesawing back and forth and I get where I need top be.

I searched for Grizzly jointers and found one with “Parallelogram Beds”; what does that mean exactly? and how can you quickly determine if the jointer you are looking at is a spiral cutter head type? Thanks for the review and shopping assistance.
