WOOD magazine review

Insert cutterhead outlasts straight knives

Review Summary

The solid carbide square inserts—with four sharp edges on each—in this jointer's spiral cutterhead will go well more than four times as long as high-speed-steel straight knives before needing replacement. And you can rotate or replace individual inserts as they dull or become nicked. The square inserts left small ridges (similar to those caused by a nicked straight knife) on the surface.
Also, the square inserts cut slower and required more feed pressure than any other style of cutterhead we tested because they don't clear wood chips as well. We like the G0593's rack-and-pinion system for moving the heavy fence across the table. However, we wish this jointer had a depth-of-cut limiter. If you don't work much with figured woods, consider buying Grizzly's G0586, a straight-knife version of this machine, for about $300 less.

Grizzly 8" Jointer

Review Summary

I have this jointer in my shop and I love it. I work with lots of figured stock and the spiral cutterhead does an excellent job of minimizing tearout. The jointer is very solid with next to no vibration. I like the elevated on/off switch for ease of access. The adjustments are easy to use although once set, I've hever had to re-adjust the outfeed table. I highly recommend this jointer. Marlen @ WOOD
