Increase the functionality of your shop today with this 6" Jointer with Knock-Down Stand and Built-In Mobile Base. It may be the smallest in our line of cabinet-stand jointers, but this champ packs quite a punch with its 3-knife, 5000 RPM cutterhead speed.

The center-mounted, heavy-duty fence features rock-solid stops at 45, 90, and 135 degrees, and a nice over-sized handle for complete control when setting the fence angle.

I love this jointer. It took a while to assemble but once completed it has all the power and precisI

Same accuracy and performance of brands costing much more. Well built.

Nice jointer
4/ 5stars

Great jointer for the price. A bit of a pain to put together. Shipping was fast and packaging is good. Runs smoothly , quiet and has plenty of power. Dust collection works really well. Only gripe would be the belt is hard to get even tension on the way the motor is mounted. They could do better on that. Overall though I am very happy with it. I would recommend this jointer to anyone.

Unlike other Grizzly Products, the G0813 Jointer had Quality Issues
2/ 5stars

I have several Grizzly products (most recently the G0555LANV bandsaw) and have been happy with the value so far. This isn't the case with this jointer. There were significant machining issues that prevent the cabinet from being assembled without the use of a dremel to resize bolt slots. Underneath the jointer itself, some of the powder coat was missing, and this area had significant rust. Also, the jointer table itself had pitting at the very end with associated rust. I was able to remove the rust but the pitting is of course permanent (this is at the very edge of the table and doesn't affect the use of the machine, but it's a quality issue none-the-less).

A great jointer for most people
5/ 5stars

Works great and very heavy table. For the price we couldn't have gotten a better product. Love the mobile base too.

5/ 5stars

Good value for the money. Only thought about the assembly of the piece is that the manufacturer could use hex head screws instead of slotted so you could use a driver to put the m in vs. a hand screwdriver in the assembly.

Once again a quality product by Grizzly added to my shop!

Very happy!
5/ 5stars

The jointer I purchased from Grizzly happened only after a lot of research and gnashing of teeth. The decision was made on price initially, but receiving my order in two days was a great start. Unpacking and assembling showed a good looking machine that is a show piece in my shop. But the critical test was when I ran my first piece of walnut through and saw the silky smooth surface with no snipe! I will look to Grizzly first for my future needs.

Works well, have some issues with the delivery
5/ 5stars

I have only had the opportunity to use the jointer once, but it works well. I had some difficulty getting the screw holes to line up between the left side panel and the chip exhaust chute, a lot of parts to align.
My main problem was with the delivery. I was not notified by the shippers, so was not at the delivery point to load into my truck, since my house is not accessible by large trucks. The shipment was left in a warehouse and I had to round up volunteers to help load it, not what I expected after paying $35 for lift service. Also, while there was only a small chip on one corner of the feed table, the shipping box was heavily damaged (see attached photos), suggesting careless handling.

5/ 5stars

Assembly was very easy. Works very well, already made a butcher block work bench. If you do a lot of edge jointing occasionally move the fence as the blades wear faster than expected or get a second set. The only complaint I have is that the depth gauge is behind the table lock and you need to crouch to see it clearly. Rabbeting was quick to set up and cut very cleanly.

4/ 5stars

The machine itself is great and I'm really glad I got it, but assembling the knock down stand was a real headache. Several parts of the assembly instructions were unclear and I spent several hours trying to get it assembled, including multiple partial disassembles to correct mistakes caused by unclear directions. Do yourself a favor and buy the model with the cabinet stand. I wish I had.

5/ 5stars

I've now had my jointer for about 5 weeks and couldn't be happier. I haven't set it up yet with a straight edge yet but I have ran some ash through it just to see how clean it cuts and I'm impressed. This jointer has a tremendous value at an awsome price point. I'm looking forward to getting my straight edge and feeler guages in so I can set it up and start on a new project. Only gripe with the whole process was working with the people grizzly uses for shipping. No one I talked to had a real idea of what was going on. But the people at grizzly were awsome and eager to help. Thanks.

I bought this after my previous 25 year old jointer failed. The jointer came as advertised and was relatively easy to put together. Two strong people are required to assemble the heavy parts. After using my previous jointer for 25 years I was surprised at the low cutter head speed of this jointer. It makes a good square edge if you push your stock through slowly. However, the cutter speed is too slow.

I bought this product a little while ago and I am very impressed with the quality and performance of this jointer. It is well made and easy to assemble. I have always wanted a jointer for my home shop and this fits the bill perfectly. Great product.

Great Product

I'm so glad I waited for this backorder to arrive. This is a high quality product.

Perfect for shop!!!
5/ 5stars

This jointer is great for a small hobby shop like mine. I am completely satisfied with my purchase!!

Why did I wait so long to buy this tool.
5/ 5stars

I bought the G0813 jointer to work with some old reclaimed oak lumber that I'm making into a dining table. It has made the project so much easier. The cuts are accurate and smooth. I don't know why I waited this long to purchase a jointer. And on this model, the price was right in my budget. I also coupled it with the G1163P Portable Dust Collector and W1049 2 Stage Cyclone Seperator. This is an excellent combination for my shop. Dust and dirt has been reduced considerably.

High Quality
5/ 5stars

I love this machine. It comes with wheels built in to make it easy to move when needed. Very well built with easy adjustment lever and set up jigs for fast replacement of the knives. It has a very nice cabinet stand that allows simple attachment of a dust collector.

G0813 Jointer
5/ 5stars

The jointer arrived in good condition. Assembly of the base was somewhat of a pain but I kept reminding myself that I saved a few bucks. (If you are not blessed with boundless time, energy, and patience, buy the G-0814 model and let the good folks at Grizzly do the assembly.) The machine runs quiet with minimal vibration. I have now used it to edge joint boards for a glues up table top. The jointer works very well for me and I expect it to continue to do so for a long time. It is a good basic machine at a fair price.

Works as it should. No complaints.

I have run about 600 board feet thru with no issues.

I bought the previous model of this jointer. I love everything about it minus the fact it will slide across my floor while I'm operating it. I'm considering taking the wheels off of it and making it stationary.

G0813 Jointer Review
5/ 5stars

The “Too Long Didn’t Read” Version :

Pros :

-Excellent quality of cut
-Quiet
-Very little vibration
-Knock-down Base is well executed

Cons :

-Fence bump-stop mechanism is passable, but not good
-Motor mounting/belt tensioning is frustrating

Nutshell : I am very happy with the purchase. Grizzly really got the big things right, but may have sacrificed some of the smaller details for the sake of an affordable price. I would dock the machine a half-star if I could, but a 4-star rating seems too harsh. All-in-all, great machine that is worth a look for the budget-conscious woodworker.

Unabridged Version

Assembly :

Assembly of the jointer took approximately 2.5 hours to complete. The manual is good enough to provide all the details needed to assemble the jointer without too much confusion, however the images are more useful than the text. This being the case, it would have been nice if the images were larger/sharper, but that might just be the lego-generation’s preference. The cabinet portion of the jointer is constructed from sheetmetal with tapped screw holes and slotted clearance holes. This works well enough and provides the necessary clearances to adjust and fiddle so that everything fits nicely. However, only a couple of threads are engaged in the sheetmetal, so if the vibrations from operating the machine start to back out the screws, nylon lock nuts might come in handy.

The most difficult portion of the assembly is mounting the motor and tensioning the drive belt. The motor is mounted with 4 bolts through a slotted track. The motor is heavy, so positioning the motor, getting the belt tensioned properly, and tightening down the mounting bolts took the better part of half an hour. Needless to say, while it can be done with one person, an extra set of hands would certainly have made this process easier.

Features and Design :

The design of the machine is well thought out and executed with only a couple notable short comings. First, the cast-iron in-feed and out-feed tables come flat and coplanar straight out of the box. Based on feeler-gauge measurements with a straight-edge, was about 1-2 mils (0.001-0.002 inches) out of coplanarity, which is “good-nuff” in my book. Knives are sharp (be careful while cleaning them) and well aligned with the out-feed table. Apart from the belt tension, set up of the jointer was fairly painless.

The fence is flat and well-constructed, but the bump-stop mechanism leaves something to be desired. This mechanism is a small metal plate, a bolt and a jam nut. While this is serviceable, it is difficult to tighten the jam nut without changing the angle of the fence. If you are planning on switching between 90 degrees and 135 degrees often, this mechanism would not be good enough to rely upon.

Ownership Experience :

Owning and working with this jointer has been a very positive experience. The jointer is much quiet and produces glass-smooth cuts. The knock-down base makes the machine easy to move around the shop without reducing stability. In the spirit of full disclosure, my unit was delivered with one of the leveling feet bent. I contacted Grizzly customer service about the issue and they are replacing the part under warranty as soon as the part is in-stock. Working with the customer service department was also a very positive experience.

Best looking

This is the cutest jointer I ever saw! The photos are very nice and the color is exultant!
