Hello All

My next big shop purchase is going to be a jointer. I’m leaning towards a Grizzly G0604X for several reasons. The first one is cost. I’m hoping to have enough left in my budget to also purchase a planer. The second is mobility. I have to share my work shop with a car on weekdays. The third has to do with the magazine reviews I’ve read. The Grizzly seems to get high test scores.
I’d like to get an opinion from anyone that has used this jointer for some time. Positive or negative, I’d appreciate your input.
Thanks

You probabley know this but for $100.00 more you can get twice the hp, 8inch wide and 18 inch longer bed. Just saying ! Enjoy

yes I agree I would go 8 inch you will have extra if u need it I dont have a jointer yet, but it will be an 8inch or 12 if i can afford it, But u get what u think u want go with yur heart my heart is 8 but u get more power more weight with the 8 and more power means smooth running no boggin down in heavy cuts, just my opinion
