I sold my grizzly 6? jointer recently. I have been researching and planning for my upgrade to an 8? or 12” model ever since. But not a lot of G0495X or other 12” jointer review out there, found a few very similar 8” jointer from Baileigh, Laguna, and Powermatic, all these three jointers identical in design. Plus, cost quite much more than G0495X.

Why I chose Grizzly 495X with spiral cutter head. I chose the Grizzly 495X because I can only afford this model at this price, possibly deliver better quality with Byrd Shelix Cutter head, parallelogram beds, share cutter head with 15×15x2.5mm with my next planer purchase.

Order. This part is easy except waiting for shipment since this is back ordered, I had a concern with Grizzly back order of late, contacted customer service which they promise if I place an order and the unit will deliver as soon as they receive the shipment, sure enough, it was delivered as promised.

Delivery. UPS called to schedule a delivery time and the freight company was delivered at the end of the day since this unit was as wide the truck so it was the last unit deliver of the day, which was not an issue.
A package was delivered intact, no damage.

Packaging. The jointer was enclosed in a custom shipping crate that was rugged, come in complete installed, Everything had arrived in good condition. I have noticed the original silver material package was sealed and cut and rewrap with a new wrapper. My assumption that when grizzly receive it from the manufacturer they reinspect prior shipping to US customer, just my guest!

. Setup was relatively easy, but time-consuming at roughly 3 hours. I was able to use the same method as Matt Jackson.
Thank you for the video on youtube

Congratulations, I want one too!

Can you provide a link to the Matt Jackson YouTube video?

BTW – It looks like yours came fully assembled. But this guy had to put his together himself? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dK2nCH9u5wc
