Grizzly G0609X 12" Jointer

Grizzly G0609X 12" Jointer

07-18-2012 12:11 AM by Joe | 11 comments »

It was time to upgrade my 6” Delta jointer, which has served me well for 4 years. I was planning to go with an 8” but decided to go ahead and get the 12”. This is my first Grizzly tool and so far it seems to be worth the money spent. A1Jim done a good review on this jointer so I am not going to rehash the same info. I will go over a few issues I had with mine. - Fit and finish is good, not great. It’s heavy, it’s quite, hey it’s a bear.- The table faces and the fence face were very nice...

Just what I wanted

I purchased this 5/25/12 and picked it up from the UPS freight terminal on 6/1/12. I paid the extra thirty something dollars for liftgate delivery to my home, but UPS contacted me and said they wouldn’t be able to deliver it from their terminal to my house for almost an additional week and I didn’t want to wait. I had no trouble getting it home using my dad’s F150. The UPS guys put it on a pallet and loaded it for me with their forklift. It took three 200+ pound men to u...

Grizzly G0490X 8" Jointer with spiral cutter head

Grizzly G0490X 8" Jointer with spiral cutter head

04-17-2012 08:44 PM by hickeymad | 10 comments »

My new machine arrived nicely packaged. No complaints about missing parts or damage. Was actually not too heavy to move into the basement with the help of two friends. Assembly took a little while – the harder part being aligning and tightening the belt. In fact, I think my belt is still too loose, as at start-up and shut-down the machine makes a bit more noise than I’ve read others with the same machine were able to achieve. Fit and finish on the machine is adequate- on the pa...

Love the machine/Hate the service

Love the machine/Hate the service

03-29-2012 03:01 AM by ECharles | 13 comments »

So my brand new Hammer A3 31 jointer/planer combo machine was delivered yesterday. I would like to thank everyone that has posted info on their machine here on the forum. A large part of the reason I bought this machine sight unseen was the great reviews. I have to say the reviews were correct this is a great machine. I put it together, took about 3 hrs, including the carrymaster casters. (Again thanks for the great idea, I love them.) This is a one time buy, it is heavy, well made,and the fi...

Another Jet 10" jointer/planer combo review

Another Jet 10" jointer/planer combo review

02-08-2012 12:35 AM by Eric | 7 comments »

Having a large hunk of white oak cut up roughly (chainsaw!) and dried, and beaten up by taking a good hour on one piece jointing with hand planes, I finally took the plunge with the Jet 10” combo. I have a small non-garage shop, so both space and charge card were important! Since others have reviewed the machine here and on other sites, I just want to add my thoughts if you are considering the purchase.First, as others have said, set up is a snap, tables well-enough co-planer out of t...

MLCS Jointer knife setter - easy cheezy

MLCS Jointer knife setter - easy cheezy

12-26-2011 06:44 PM by Bertha | 9 comments »

I didn’t really want to spend $80 on this but I did it anyway.List Price: $89.95 Price: $70.69 http://www.amazon.com/MLCS-9397-Jointer-Planer-Setting/dp/B001NXC6YQ NOTE: The way the jigs are setup in the picture above is incorrect! The magnets register directly onto the cutter head; they never attach to the table surface! The reviews were pretty bad, actually, but it works as advertised. It’s made of some heavy duty type plastic with really hard-tugging rare Earth magnets. T...

YES, the Global Knives fit the PM 54A

YES, the Global Knives fit the PM 54A

12-24-2011 11:12 PM by Bertha | 18 comments »

There have been several threads concerning replacement knives for the Powermatic 54A longbed 6” jointer..1) the Global Tooling knives fit2) they were shipped in record time (even with the Holidays)3) they were well packaged4) they were insanely cheap5) 5 stars You are seeing that price correctly. I mean, shipping su*ks but what are you gonna do. Wait for a multiple knife order and it’ll be less painful. I am very impressed with this company, and that’s hard to...

Grizzly H7653.  The Best Tool Upgrade You'll Ever Make!

Grizzly H7653. The Best Tool Upgrade You'll Ever Make!

12-07-2011 10:25 PM by BrownWaterDesigns | 10 comments »

I picked up a Jet-JJCSX off Craigslist a few weeks ago and it was in great shape, except for the blades. They were completely destroyed and it looked as though the previous owner jointed a board full of wood screws. Anyway, after looking costs of the various blades and comparing HSS vs carbide vs how frequently they would have to be changed (which is not a pleasant undertaking) I started looking at the spiral cutter heads on the market and decided to go with the Grizzly for a number of rea...

Great little Jointer

Great little Jointer

I decided last night that I could not live without a jointer for a gate project I am working on but did not want to spend the money on a larger jointer as my wife just started her own business last year so I did some searching and came across this little guy on sale at sears. Regularly $209 but on sale online for $169.57 right now. got it home and set up was a breeze. It was also easy to get the granite fences nice and true.Within about 45 minutes I was jointing boards and so far it works ...
