What’s the difference between the Grizzly GO604 and the GO604X jointer?

The go604x is a parallelogram jointer, which has adjustments to keep the in and outfeed table parallel to each other. The go604zx is identical, but with a spiral cutter head. The go604 does not have the built in adjustments to keep the infeed and outfeed tables parallel. You would have to shim it if it were not parallel.

Sorry, I’m a little confused. I don’t know much about jointers but I thought the out feed table was supposed to be higher than the in feed table? I seen one on c/l, A Grizzly GO604 for $300, I went on the Grizzly site and the only difference I could see was that 604 was a 1 hp and the 604Z was a 1.5 hp. Is this a good deal?

It sounds like a good deal to me.

Parallel and co-planar are two different things. Yes, the outfeed table is higher, but should be absolutely parallel to the infeed.
