looking for some quick LJ feedback on this tool:
Grizzly G0856 8” x 72” Jointer with Helical Cutterhead & Mobile Base – Manufactured 2019-04

List price is $1495 + 175 shipping.

I can get it for $800. Seems like a good deal, right? Need to make a decision in a few hours.

I’d say $800 is a good price for it. Will depend on your location though.

I bought my jointer (G0490X) in a similar deal – about a year old it was. The original owner kept it in perfect order and had gone through all the setup hassles (cleaning off the shipping grease etc.) If you have a good way to move it, I would go for it. (You also avoid sales tax.)

I think I will do it. Seems like a decent enough discount for a good tool.

Less than 60% of new price… that seems very fair to me provided it is in great working condition.

I picked it up last night.
The table and fence have some rust in various spots. I am planning on getting some really fine steel wool and spending some time to get them cleaned up.

Any recommendations? Or things to avoid?

Congratulations.

Suggestions:

- Read the manual, several times.

- Use push blocks when face jointing, not fingers.

- Never ever place any heavy objects or drop lumber on top of the ‘pork chop’ blade guard on jointer.
It is made of thin die cast aluminum, supported by single rotating pin, and will bend/break easily. DAMHIK

Cheers!

Nice tip. I am sure that is one I would have learned the expensive way.

Have your say...
