Grizzly G0656P 3HP Jointer First Look

Grizzly G0656P 3HP Jointer First Look

1218 days ago by Kevin | 17 comments »

01. ShippingPlaced order on 12/8 and it was shipped out on 12/9. It arrived 60 miles south from me on 12/10. I had to wait at the earliest to 12/14 to get it. Driver didn’t contact me so I had to wait until 12/16 to get it. UPS driver helped me haul it 80 feet into my garage. Both boxes did not have any dings or holes in themat all. The driver told me they were extra careful with my package. Shipment weighed in at 582 lbs and the jointer fence was a bear to haul I can say that. ...

Best Jointer I have ever used.

Best Jointer I have ever used.

1244 days ago by therookie | 7 comments »

Now this jointer is the best jointer I have ever used, but is also my first. But that is besides the point, the point is the jointer is very quiet and pretty accurate. When is first arrived, I pulled it out of the crate and started assembling it. I went for the manual and started to read about assembly and found out that it went faster figuring out how to asseble it on my own rather than following the directions. Accuracy right out of the crate is OK for getting stuff within a 1/32 of an inch...

After several weeks of debate, I decided to go with General International for my jointer. I seriously considered going with Grizzly for a jointer, most of the reviews I’ve read about them are very positive, and it sounds like their customer service is second to none. The deciding factor though was having a General dealer in town, so if anything goes wrong or if I have questions it would be easy to get help. The jointer was a display model, so it was already assembled and cleaned. The ...

Great jointer for a great deal

Great jointer for a great deal

1264 days ago by Vrtigo1 | 15 comments »

I picked one of these guys up second hand about 6 months ago and haven’t regretted it. It was already assembled, so I can’t speak to that aspect of it. Aside from having a little rust on the bed from sitting in a storage shed, it was in great shape. I’ve used it on a few projects and it’s always done everything I need it to do. I typically do not use a DC with it just because the area in my garage where it’s located is too far away. It does tend to fill up w...

Great Idea but Poor Design

Great Idea but Poor Design

1288 days ago by jmichaeldesign | 12 comments »

I read reviews on this machine on multiple sites before I decided to purchase and came to the conclusion that it would serve me well. I had what I thought to be realistic expectations from this machine. I had expected a machine that would work well for boards up to 5, maybe 6 feet long. I expected it to be under powered, but usable. Many reviews spoke of the difficulty of getting the jointer tables coplanar. I planned on setting the jointer to take a 1/16” cut and leave it there all the...

Poor quality and even worse costomer service

Poor quality and even worse costomer service

1309 days ago by samiam | 25 comments »

Got this unit home and uncrated after it took 3 weeks to get from Laguna. When I ordered it the unit was on the floor ready to ship and when it was all said and done it hadn’t cleared customs yet. First thing that I noticed is that the plug on the end of the power cord was only rated for 15 amps. This unit has a 4hp motor so I thought that was underrated. It didn’t matter to me though I had already planned to cut the end off and put one on that matched my set-up with locking plugs. It ...

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: ...

Rikon 6" Jointer-Good buy if you can get it for the same price.

Rikon 6" Jointer-Good buy if you can get it for the same price.

1321 days ago by Brian024 | 14 comments »

After debating for a while on which jointer to get, I decided on this Rikon. This is the first jointer I have owned so I don’t have any other to compare but it is well built compared to the others I have used. When I bought it, Woodcraft had it on clearance for $299, the regular price was $450, I couldn’t pass it up. It comes in 2 separate boxes, base/motor in one and the table/fence in the other, the total shipping weight was around 280 lb’s. The motor comes premounte...

This is why I trust Delta machinery :) I hope I am not coming off as a brand snob but this jointer is over 36 years old, AND STILL RUNNING ON THE ORIGINAL KNIVES TO BOOT!!!!!! I picked this up this spring from a guy at work who was getting rid of his shop and moving into a condo for $100 and with only the cord needing replaced from dry rot and rust from being in the basement it performs like it did coming out of the box :) Adding to this Parts are still available along with the Owners manual ...

Bear of a jointer with grizzly sharp teeth!

Bear of a jointer with grizzly sharp teeth!

1341 days ago by mmh | 7 comments »

I am mainly a cane maker so my wood working techniques or needs don’t require the same as that of a cabinet or furniture maker, but since I do use a LOT of very hard woods (Afromosia, Bloodwood, Cocobolo, Ebony, Jatoba, Osage Orange, Macadamia, Macawood, Padauk, Pink Ivory, Rosewood, Ziricote, etc.). I needed a quality jointer and wanted one with the cutting ability to get a nice smooth surface on these woods, especially the figured ones for my cane work and future furniture projects. ...
