I’m pretty stoked. After spending the past several weeks agonizing into the late night hours over what jointer to get and whether if I could figure out how to throw a DC system in the mix to replace my Shopvac/Dust Deputy combo, I’m pleased to say I have two nice Polar Bear painted Grizzly machines queued for delivery. The G0656P jointer and G0703P cyclone DC system will make a nice addition to my garage shop.
I want to thank all those who have posted in the past about their opinions of Grizzly and these machines in specific. I’ve found a lot of great information here to help me.
I also want to give a shout out to LJ’er “bladedust”. He spotted me his 10% off coupon code from Woodworker’s Journal which saved me $168 off the total. Thanks blade!!! I hope to pay it forward myself one of these days.
I can’t wait till I can put aside my crappy Porter Cable benchtop jointer and do some real work. I’m in the middle of doing glue ups of my Roubo bench legs and I think the PC has done more harm than good. If I had a better work bench already to clamp this stuff to, I think I would have just jointed all the boards by hand. My old Miller Falls #7 jointer and Stanley SW Type 14 #5 would probably create less waste and do a better job.
Now… I have to figure out how to sneak a Bandsaw into the mix! It might be a while yet so the comptroller (a.k.a. wife) can recover from this purchase first. :)
