This 8" Jointer has all the features you’d want for precision jointing applications and ease of use.

A built-in mobile base, center-mounted fence with lateral rack-and-pinion control and a pedestal-mounted switch all combine to make this jointer one of the best jointers you’ll find anywhere.

Great product for the price 1/6/2018

I would have gave this 5 stars except that the infeed table measurement gauge had a broken screw that had to be drilled out and tapped for a new screw. It also had a stripped motor mount screw, which Grizzly sent a replacement right away. Still believe they have the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with.

Very nice heavy duty jointer 1/4/2018

I only wish that the tables and the knives had been adjusted a bit better from the factory. It took me a long time to get everything within two thousandths of an inch. One of the nut inserts spun loose on the base. I peened it and then it worked fine.


Hobbyists woodworker purchased this for personal use. Limited experience with other jointers, but overall very satisfied with quality and performance. Table adjustments are easy to use. Fence is solid. Knives easy to change. Cabinet access could be made more convenient to access with a door vs 6 screws. Free shipping offer makes this a good value. Unfortunately there was a back order and it took 8 months to arrive.

Excellent Value 10/2/2017

I purchased this jointer in May and took delivery on the June 1st and in the 4 months since, I have been extremely happy with the purchase I made. The jointer came well packaged, undamaged and the tables were perfectly set up right out of the box. I had an issue with the motor mounts as one of the motor mount bolts were sheared and, if I'm honest, all of them were shorter than they really should be. I replaced all 4 with 5/16" carriage bolts and that solved that problem. My only real complaint is regarding setting the belt tension; it's a difficult process, not easily done as one person and even with a second set of hands is annoying to say the least. That being said, once set, it's fairly smooth sailing and re-tensioning the belt will be a rare occurrence.

This machine has been invaluable to me as it has enabled me to buy rough lumber and, in conjunction with my 13" Delta thickness planer, surface the rough lumber myself. Not only has this saved me money, it has also allowed me to work with more exotic woods that I would not be able to get surfaced from the lumber yard.

Any way you look at it, this jointer is a serious value. The machine is of very high quality and costs less than the 6" jointers from other major companies and if there's one thing that I read countless times while researching the right jointer to buy, it was that most people who buy 6" jointers eventually wish they'd gotten an 8" jointer. Thankfully, I'll never have to worry about that.

Great value over time 9/17/2017

The true test of a machine is how well it performs over time. I have owned this jointer about five years. I have used it several times a week since purchasing it, easily several hundred times in all. I use it jointing and planing red and white oak, ash and cherry. It worked perfectly out of the box and works just as well today. I really do not see how it could be better.

So far so good 6/18/2017

I have only owned this product for a couple of weeks so far, so I can't really say if I would recommend it quite yet. But since grizzly has sent me three emails already asking to review it I will give you my observations thus far. It has performed as it should so far. The dust collection could definitely be improved, but other than that I have had no issues. Tables adjust accurately and the bed is flat and true. Blades were neve and sharp out of the box and set appropriately. All parts were there and no damage during shipping.

Impressed with the quality 6/18/2017

This was a big tool purchase for me and I had some reservations about investing in a machine manufactured overseas. However after assembly and testing the results speak for themselves. I surfaced a twisted board of rough cut 12/4 cherry that was about 6" wide and 6' long. The face was flat when I checked it with a machined straightedge with no twist as checked with a pair of winding sticks. The additional length of the infeed and outfeed tables over my 6" jointer makes jointing longer stock so much easier (I was surprised at the difference a 72" table made over my previous 46" table). Overall I am very pleased with the initial quality of this machine.

Good value 6/12/2017

Just began using the machine. Shipping was fine as is the equipment. The instructions were very poor. The fence and the belt cover came separate from the table. There were NO directions for assembling. Could not find very much internet
Information. Took the joy out of getting a major tool purchase

I received this jointer several weeks ago after waiting over two months. Since receiving my jointer I have not had a lot of time to use it but it seems great. I would purchase again, thanks.

great machine 6/2/2017

I've used this now for a few months and love it. Yields a very smooth cut. Was easy to setup and clean, packaging was good, easy to move from the semi to my shop. Works great is pretty quiet.

Quality jointer. No issues. Came packaged well and assembly was straight foward. Working by myself I had to lift one side at a time and kept adding blocks under each side until I was able to slide the base under it. Piece of cake. I nicked the blades with a light staple within the first day of use which was a bummer but I have a sharpener for planer blades. I'm buying a grizzly spiral head planer and will be replacing the knife head with a spiral cutter head on this jointer and say goodbye to sharpening and setting knives for good. Life's too short. For the money you sure can't do wrong buying this jointer. It works well and is a beautiful machine.
