I recently received a G0490X, 8" jointer. I wanted to thank you all for doing such a great job. My impression is that Grizzly is considered by most to be the "value" manufacturer. This is a code word for "quality not so good, but cheap!"
My experience with this jointer shows how untrue that impression is. The machine went together flawlessly, and worked beautifully from the moment I first turned it on. With machines like this, one has to be psychologically prepared to go through a long, painful, frustrating process to get the settings dialed in just right. I was absolutely DELIGHTED to find that the outfeed table setup was flawless without me making a single adjustment! Everything was flat, and true, right out of the crate. I can't thank you enough for seeing to it that this machine was so perfectly set up!
I'm going to tell everyone on woodnet.net about how pleased I am!
I bought the GO490X 8" jointer, sprial cutter head last month. I love this product. I would recommend this to anyone. Grizzly has great customer service and the staff if very helpful and friendly. I have been a customer since 1987.
