So this morning i decided to drive 4 hours to Springfield, MO, to visit the Grizzly store. I had in mind to buy a new G0690 table saw along with a G0490XW 8” jointer. Sadly, they were completely out of every 8” jointer, of every model. It was quiet a disappointment, after driving 4 hours… And they wouldn’t sell me the floor model, cause i asked! lol
Well, Grizzly has great customer service and they worked with me! They did have a Shop Fox W1741 in stock, exact same as the G0490 i was looking at, beside it was straight knives. But they cut me a deal! Sold me a brand new Shelix cutter head to go with it, plus took some money off of the Shop Fox, so that it was the same cost as the G0490XW that i wanted! Score!!! Better warranty, two cutter heads and all for the same price!
Well… Until I got home! Started opening boxes and looked at the Shelix cutter… The thing looks funny, just in one spot. One of the carbide cutters, seems to be sitting at a funny angle. All the other cutters all the way around it all sit how you would expect them. Besides just one at the very far end. I looked it over and it is seated right. Looks to me that the seat was cut at a goofy angle. I might be wrong and was hoping someone could tell me that it should be like that. I find it hard to believe that someone inserted all of the carbide cutters and didn’t seem to notice this funky one… Hopefully the pics show what i am talking about good.
What do you guys think…?
