Description

This 8" Jointer is popular among both professional and hobbyist woodworkers. The 76-3/8" table with extra long infeed table and the huge fence will make sure your stock is cut accurately. The easy to reach pedestal-mounted switch and lever-controlled table elevation make this a joy to operate. Our foot-pedal operated, built-in mobile base will allow you to keep this monster out of the way, yet easy to move when needed. We made the welded steel cabinet oversized for an incredibly stable platform. This machine will gobble-up wood with ease and produce smooth, straight and flat stock all day long.

Great tool at a great price. Love my Grizzly.

Review Summary

I'm satisfied with this jointer. The stop/e-stop button seems a little flimsy and the grinding on the in-feed table had some significant chatter in it. Grizzly was willing to replace it. Other than that, this is a great tool. Now I want a planer with a helical head.

Review Summary

I actually purchased this unit with just the regular three blade cutter head and later upgraded to the Byrd Shelix cutter head and it is the only way to go. This planer works wonderful and is very much a needed tool in getting my stock square an true. And you just can't beat the value and customer service that Grizzly offers.
