Does anybody have any personal experience with the mobile bases on the Grizzly jointers? I m eyeing the G0857 but it looks like the mobile base doesn t have any swivel in it. It shouldn t be too difficult to take the wheels off so I can make my own mobile base, right? Being able to turn is pretty important in a garage shop.

I have the G0858. I was able to uncrate and remove it from the pallet by myself. The mobile base works fine as I have a concrete shop floor. Easy to move and position.

Plus, mine needed no table adjustments at all. The only adjustment I made was to set the infeed table to remove 1/32nd a pass.

If you have the money go for the helical head. I recommend it. But either way, you can’t go wrong.
