Well, the much talked about Grizzly shipping problems are not just an urban legend as proof by these photos:
My lovely bride bought the 6” spiral cutterhead model and new shop fox fence for me for our anniversary. God bless her. The came delivered today via UPS freight and dropped at the front door. The boxes were in tatters, as you can see by the pictures. The first picture shows the box after just barely pulling on one corner. I guess they paid attention to the writing on the box in the third picture, because it looks like it’s in great shape. A brief inspection tells me everything is ok, but we’ll have to see when I get more time to investigate. I’m going to try and get the jointer put together in the next few days, a full review will be forthcoming.
I’ll probably have to wait until I get back from our trip to Cali to install the new table saw fence. I’ll review that, too, when I get a chance.
So, for now I’m gloating that I have a new sprial cutter jointer and a new tablesaw fence. Tomorrow I might be crying that both are damaged and I’ve got to wait for replacements. Wish me luck!
