Still window shopping for future stationary tools for the shop. My shop is small,(less than 170 sq.ft.) so that
limits my choices.

A jointer/planer is in the plans for sure. In doing my research, I see many state that a 6” jointer is too limiting
and an 8” jointer/planer is the way to go.

I could probably manage an 8” jointer with the long bed but it would be pushing it, space wise and the weight might
be a concern.

I noticed Grizzly has a 10” jointer/planer combo. The GO675 that can plane boards 9 3/4” wide,and joint 10 1/4” wide.

The tradeoff seems to be the length of the jointer table. It is only 40 15/16” long. How limiting would this be ?
Can jigs or in/outfeed tables overcome that limitation ?

Also I would need to wire the shop for 220 for this unit. That is not really a deal killer, as I will be having my
shop wired and that can be done.

Anyone have this particular unit or the 12” unit ? Your thoughts ?

The 2013 Tool Guiide (Taunton Press) has reviews of combo machines, including both the 10” and 12” Grizzlies.

Have your say...
