Description

Building on the success of Grizzly's larger G0490 8" parallelogram jointer, they have created a 6" model with everything you could want. The extra-long infeed table and fence makes for straighter cuts while the 1-1/2 HP motor gets the work done quickly. With the built-in adjustment of the parallelogram table design, you never need to worry about your tables not being parallel.

WOOD magazine review

Cleanest cuts with 4-knife cutterhead

Review Summary

This unit has nearly everything we like in a jointer: Long bed and fence, pedestal-mounted switch with large “off” paddle, easy-to-adjust parallelogram tables with locks on the front, and a built-in mobile base. Add to that plenty of power and a four-knife cutterhead that delivers a quality finish.
Our only gripes are a cutterhead guard that pinches against boards on 6"-wide cuts, a depth scale with confusing increments (five marks between zero and 1/2" rather than four or eight), and a dust chute that clogs easily.

Jointer review

Review Summary

After getting most of the shipping grease off the parts and assembled, I made a the required adjustments and gave it a try. I am not disappointed. Has plenty of power and the fence was set dead on at the factory. Have run oak, cedar, and walnut with no problem at all. My dust collector was able to handle all the chips with just a few on the top plate. Nice machine so far. The i=only thing I do not care for are the push pads, they slip while pushing material.
I downloaded a plan for another type of push stick and will make it before I make another cut.
