« Part 9: Shapeoko 2 upgrade to the new X-Carve Part 10 of Woodshop Confessions series Part 11: Making a Team RWB Plaque »

Here I show how I upgraded my Grizzly G0654 6” Jointer with the H7653 Indexable Insert Spiral Cutterhead and do a little needed maintenance to the bed of my jointer.

Excellent video. Thanks for sharing this. Is it safe to assume you love the upgrade and wish you had done this a long time ago. I have a Grizz 8 inch and was stupid for not getting it with the spiral cutter.

Thanks, and yes you are correct. What a huge difference it makes. I wish I had a segmented cutterhead on my planer also but I have a lunchbox planer and not sure if I can spend more on a cutterhead than I did for the planer.
