Was looking at getting the Grizzly G0452Z 6” Jointer With Spiral Cutter Head. If you have one I was wondering about your impressions of it.

How is the cut of the spiral cutter head?
Does it leave grooves?
If it does, what do you do extra for edge jointing and glue ups?
Does it bog down on face jointing?

I have the G0452 with the knives. I thought about the spriral head but instead I chose to get a planer with spiral heads. Generally once I face plane a board and then move to the thickness planer I end up flipping it every time I make a pass anyhow.

FWIW, I have a Steel City 40300H. You can see cutter marks but they are easily sanded out during normal sanding anyhow.

I would definitely go for the spiral head. In fact, I’m picking up that exact jointer shortly.
All my research led me to believe that one will work great for me.

Doug Stowe has that jointer, and when I emailed him about it, he said he was happy with it.
