A Very Solid Machine - With easy results.

A Very Solid Machine - With easy results.

This was purchased from a local Woodcraft with the help of SuperMax tools putting together a package (the SKU didn’t exist) with the closed stand instead of the open stand that comes with it by default. The sander goes together very easily, as does the stand and getting it tuned up is also very easy to do. My sander was off a little on the conveyor tracking, but that was easily fixed in about 5 minutes. The results that I’ve seen with it so far are nothing short of outstanding...

Grizzly Branded Byrd Shelix Cutter Head for the G0452P

I got some tiny nic’s in the blades on my Grizzly G0452 Jointer and figured with these being on sale (4/2016) at Grizzly, why not avoid the hassle of the getting new knives and having to get them set correctly and all that trouble again.

Sure…... it was a lot for it to cut, but what’s the point of a blade height of 3 1/4” when it can’t cut that much...

So I purchased this from a local woodcraft @ $799 (on sale till the end of March) and it was forklift loaded in the bed of my truck. It was a fairly small pallet and my wife and I were able to unload it to the garage with little trouble. (She didn’t complain too much.) I assembled it in about an hour, casually taking my time and it was pretty easy. All the tools are included to assemble, however it’s faster and easier to use real sockets/wrenches. I was able to assemble it ...
