Delta Portable Jointer - so so even at $40 and with modification

07-16-2010 03:44 AM by AaronK | 10 comments »

Bought it used off craigslist for $40. I spent about 4 hours on it getting it to what is its most usable form without major modification. I work slow, but figure you’ll probably have to spend at least half that time if you have the same problems I did…. and the other two reviewers here on LJ did too. Here’s what needed to be done: 1. shim infeed table to be coplanar with outfeed. Fortunately the tables are not warped, as far as I can tell. 2. adjust the blades to be level...

One Great Product

I was wanting a jointer for a long time. I was looking, but most were upwards of $400, and I am not willing to fork over that kind of money, so I opted for a cheaper, but still efficient one. I saw the Delta, but it had aluminum table, and although it looked very nice, the lightness of it didn’t make me really that happy about it. I was going to get the 4 inch craftsman jointer, when I said to myself, I will grow, I will later want the bigger version, I will be mad I made the desision t...

I recently purchased the Grizzly G0452Z jointer. It has the spiral cutterhead. Assembly was pretty easy, took about an hour. Directions were pretty good. Condition of all parts, finish, etc. was fine. The machine does an awesome job of flattening, as it is supposed to, and is very quiet (relative to the bladed versions). So, in my opinion this is a great machine. What I really want to comment on, however, is Grizzly’s customer service. This machine came in two boxes. Box 1 ...

Late last winter i had a friend who flew down from here in Alaska to the lower 48 to pick up a truck he had purchased. He was driving it back up and was going through Washington so I had him stop by the Grizzly Warehouse to pick up a few things for me. One was the Grizzly G0656 8”x72” jointer with mobile base that they had for $795. When my buddy arrived we backed his truck into the shop and using some pipes and a rope tackled slid the box containing the jointer table (the heav...

i really needed to get a tool like this into my shop, and i am very happy to state this is my first jointer, and mighty nice tool indeed! i am very spoiled to have something this nice at my disposal! Grizzly was selling these units as blem’s through their eBay storefront. the cost savings was substantial and it was stated that the paint was uneven, blotchy, and not up to Grizzly standards. the tool still carried a full factory warranty on all parts other than the paint finish. I deci...

Great Machine, Even Better Service

Great Machine, Even Better Service

09-26-2012 11:17 PM by lab7654 | 10 comments »

I bought this machine in July when CPO started running them on sale for $400. I was originally going to get the 8” version, but it wasn’t on sale and with the sale price of the 10” one, it was only $30 less. The 10” one comes with a stand, so even with the extra $30 you are probably paying the same. Anyway, I set it up at home as soon as I got it (first picture) and brought it to my cabin later that week. Upon the first start up, it made a rumbling noise when it shut d...

Review of Grizzly 12" Jointer G609X With Sprial Cutter Head (Grizzly)

Review of Grizzly 12" Jointer G609X With Sprial Cutter Head (Grizzly)

04-08-2010 03:28 PM by Hollis | 10 comments »

The big machine was unloaded with a fork lift using straps under the beds. Grease was present mainly on the beds and fence and was removed with a single edge razor blade and WD-40. It was moved to position using ½” water pipe and two people. I have since built a rollerbase which is pictured; and also added a Wixley digital planer height gauge to it which is also pictured. Out of the box it required a little tweaking of the tables. The outfeed was a few thousandths out of level with the c...

I love this Grizzly Jointer. I have a small shop and the size of this machine is perfect. The spiral cutter – head is worth every penny. I gave 4 stars because, I requested the lift gate service. UPS Freight called me and scheduled an appointment at their convenience for delivery. I scheduled time off work to make the appointment time UPS Freight requested and then UPS Freight blew me off. No call, no notification, no call to reschedule, nothing. UPS freight never showed up. ...

I lucked into the closeout deal at Woodcraft where it was being sold for $150. Shipping was $75. As I live in an apartment in NYC, I had it delivered to my sister’s house as she has both a garage and an SUV I could borrow to get it to my shop which is in Pennsylvania. It was shipped the same day and it arrived in three business days. I was concerned about how I would get it out of the truck, but the shipper had a liftgate and it was no problem. The best news was that it fit in my car: ...

Used Jet JJ-6CS jointer, seems to be a bargain

Used Jet JJ-6CS jointer, seems to be a bargain

02-22-2011 05:17 AM by ic3ss | 10 comments »

I picked this up from a Craigslist ad recently for $200. SCORE!! I wanted the CSX with 1 hp motor, but this one will do. And with this being about half the going price for a newer CSX, I can put that money towards some chisels or a shoulder plane. Looks like it’s seen some action, I had to clean a bunch of surface rust from the fence and tables. A thorough cleaning did wonders, and now I need to pull the knives and get them sharpened. Everything seems to work fine, even the bearings are...
