I have no relationship with this company (except as a customer)
I bought a Grizzly 1182 6” jointer over 10 years ago and never changed the blades. Use has been light but the thought of changing and setting the blades intimidated me. FWW did an article on jointer tune ups and included was a sidebar on the Dispoz A Blade system. This same system is also sold by Grizzly. I was considering a spiral head cutter but was advised not to by Grizzly on this older machine as I might have to change the bearings.
So I bought a set of these blades with the jig and changing was a snap. The blades have two cutting edges so you simply turn them when they get dull. The system utilizes a reference notch that references the jig and the blade to the cutterhead. Couldn’t be easier. These also work in planers.
When you need new blades simply order the replacement blades and dispose of the dull ones. Initial cost for me was $251 for the jig with an extra set of blades (12 cutters). Cost for 3 new blades will be $25 (HSS) or $46 (Cobalt)
