Seems to get good reviews. This 6” Grizzly jointer I’m looking at tonight is about 10 yrs old and used lightly in a hobbyist’s garage. He’s asking $225 and it comes with an HTC mobile base. Not sure how low I can get him down but at full asking price, I think it’s still reasonable as long as it’s ready for work.
Anything I should know about this model? I’ll be sure to run some wood through and listen to the bearings, check the belt/motor and check the tables. Not sure how I feel about the table adjustment levers but we’ll see tonight.
Picked up a bunch of these doug fir beams for a song and i’ve been resawing them down to useable sizes for some upcoming projects. I was hoping to get a clean enough cut on the table saw to join them for tabletops but while it’s close, I think it’s time for a jointer all the same.
