This past June I was looking at the Grizzly 8” jointers on line when I came across this. It was $200.00 off the original price because it had a paint defect. I thought about it for a week and I called Grizzly on July 1st to see how many they had left. The lady on the phone said six, So I orded one, that very next day Grizzly came out with the 10% codes, I called when I got home from work the next day and I was told sorry there was notihing they could do. This was the 2nd time this past year this happened to me!
It took 7 days to get it ( I had to work) I setup a delievery for that following Monday @ 1230pm. I waited and my wife told me that her mother was coming over, my mother-in-law always gives me greef when I get a new tool. So the Semi truck pulled up in front of the house the the UPS man was pushing the jointer up the drive way and my lovely mother-in-law pulled up and just sat in her truck, she yelled out the window ” I thought you didn’t have any money Al ” I told her I won it! She said “Oh bullsh#t” I just laught it was my birthday and I didnt care.
I opened the base of the jointer thinking it was going to be a mess but to my surpise it was perfect. Next I opened the jointer bed, I noticed there was white paint chips mixed in the grease covering the bed. I cleaned up the grease and noticed some paint chipping off the the back of the jointer. I didn’t care I was thinking the worst. I tried to left the jointer on the base by my self for about 2 sec. My 73yr old father came over to see my new air craft carrier and said he could help so I waited for my brother. I couldn’t turn on the jointer for a week because I was putting a sub panel in the garage. When I first turned on the jointer I couldn’t believe how much more quite it is compared to my Ridgid jointer. Having the extra 2” and long bed is a great bonus. The only complaint I have about the jointer is that the power cord is too short. I went and replaced it with a #12 10 foot cord, I bought the wrong gauge wire so that ’s why the cord looks like it’s about to fall out, but is just fine.
The jointer with shipping cost me $745.00, I sold my Ridgid jointer for $260.00, so out of pocket the jointer only cost me $485.00 I think thats a great deal for 8” jointer. I don’t regret buying is jointer, this is my second piece of Grizzly equipment and I really love it.

Hey brother good score! I didn’t know Grizzly had a scratch and dent section on their web site. Can you point me to it?

Congrats on the new tool. Maybe M-I-L should get a closer look.

Scott that was the first time that I’ve seen Grizzly put that on their web site. When I called, the girl on the phone didn’t know what I was talking about, she had to go to the site to look it up for herself. Grizzly must of had a bunch of jointers with that paint issue and I was lucky to get one at that price.

When I started reading I thought this would be a rant. Glad to hear you had a good experience. Enjoy your new jointer.

200 bucks for a little paint chipping? I’d say you got a good deal.

And tell mom-in-law to go pound sand :-)

”Grizzly G0656P Belmish
So I was saying to myself , what the heck is a belmish and how does it rate 5 stars ?
Could it be a new tool that I haven’t heard about yet ?

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
