How do you electronically measure a table movement that goes up and down on a dovetail at an angle or floats with a parallelogram type adjustment? Well, the president of Grizzly figured it out and installed it on the first-ever jointer with a digital height readout. No more guessing or bending over to see a hard-to-read scale. Exact table height adjustments are displayed right at the control panel in resolutions of 0.001" or 0.01mm. What’s more, this parallelogram-type jointer has a spiral cutterhead for smooth surfacing on difficult grain and a full bed length of 82-1/2" for absolutely straight edges. Solid cast iron throughout and a center-mounted fence with rack-and-pinion lateral adjustment all combine to make this the Ultimate 8" Jointer!

Amazing Jointer 7/26/2018

First of all let me say the G0495X is an AMAZING jointer. The jointer is very heavy and has a stable platform. It did have a few scratches on the bed near the cutter head, but nothing that would impact the performance of the machine. I could not be happier with the quality. I was very surprised by how quiet this machine is when cutting stock. I flattened a twisted 6 wide piece of cherry and in 3 passes it was as flat as flat can be, no tear-out. VERY impressive. The wheels lift the in feed and out feed tables very smoothly. The machine came perfectly co-plainer despite the condition of the box (More on this later) I checked with a Veritas straight edge and a set of feeler gauges. Perfect as Perfect can be.
That was all the good stuff about my purchase. Grizzly has been great, ONCE I received my order. As many people have found Grizzly has an inventory problem. Many of these items are back ordered. Mine was backordered 3x then finally I said I needed to cancel the order if they could not get the 2 pieces I needed. (I ordered a Spiral head plainer as well) The last time I called they told me the jointerI originally ordered was backordered (for a 4th time) Until December of 2018. My original order was placed in May. As the owner of a production shop I could not wait 8 months for something to ship if it shipped at all. To add insult to injury my order was placed BEFORE these Tariffs went into effect, yet they felt they had to charge me the extra fees; upon hearing there would be extra fees (and after a LONG wait) I told the sales team I would need to cancel the order if I was expected to pay an additional $600, they offered to upgrade my jointer to the G0495x from the G0490 I had ordered as they actually had the 495X in the US, so no tariff. They offered me a good and fair discount on the jointer and I was pleased with that so I ordered both and paid no Tariff fees. Both items shipped a few days later. Now on to the NIGHTMARE that is UPS Freight. UPS scheduled a delivery date on Friday but NEVER showed up. They gave the traditional 4 hour window of time for delivery. But never called to say they were not coming. I called them and complained that I had hired 4 guys to help unload and move these pieces into the shop since we had scheduled the delivery. They apologized (sorry that does not help me pay the 4 guys I had waiting around) and said they would deliver on Monday, they gave me the same 1-5pm window. THIS TIME I called them to confirm it was being delivered before paying 4 guys to stand around AGAIN.. guess what.. NOPE not going to be delivered on Monday as scheduled. (I found out why after the fact more on that in a moment.) So TUESDAY was the new date between 1-5. So Tuesday came and I called and YES! the jointer and plainer were on the truck for delivery. UPS showed up at 5pm. We opened the truck and BOOM I could see WHY they did not deliver on Monday. Someone (note the lack of harsher language) smashed into the Jointer box with a forklift and practically demolished it. THATS why it was not delivered on Monday, they needed to fix the box as best as they could so they could get it on the truck; Fortunately the jointer was not touched not even scratched. It took us 30 minutes to get the jointer off the truck as it was tilted to the left on the pallet and we needed to be careful not to let it fall off the pallet. I will give the highest praise to the UPS truck driver. Despite the condition of the delivery he stayed with us and helped us move both pieces into the shop. So I am thrilled with the Machines, hated the wait, despised the delivery process from UPS freight but had high marks for the UPS driver. Would I do it again? ......Yes, the price and quality of the machines is second to none. We are mostly a Grizzly shop, we have a G0690 Table Saw, a Grizzly Bandsaw, Jointer, plainer and soon a Drill press. Grizzly support is excellent. My only complaint is the fact that they did not ship any Gear box oil for the Plainer and the Jointer did not come with a plug, just a set of 3 wires. ALL of my other 220v machines from Grizzly came with the plug attached, not sure why this one did not. So after hunting around for the additional parts I have everything up and running. If you can stand the backorder process and survive UPS freight, these machines are a great value.

Grizzly advertizes this jointer as the best 8" jointer, bar none. I totally agree. 1/17/2018

The jointer met all my expectations and exceeded several. I had a little problem but Grizzly met this head on and solved the problem. I can say that Grizzly wants the customer to have a machine that is flawless. My hat goes off to Grizzly. Thanks you

Great jounter 1/11/2018

Excellent machine, very little adjustments needed from factory. Beds were Perfectly aligned from factory.
The digital hight adjustment meter is a waste. No on/off switch just runs batteries down.Not really needed on a jointer.

Excellent jointer, comes assembled and crated better than other Grizzly machines I have purchased in the past. Mine was dialed in right from the start tables within a couple thousandths of being coplaner. Excellent well made machine.

WOW 8/28/2017

I replaced a sears craftsman 6" jointer with this. Wonderful machine.

Awesome machine 5/6/2017

This jointer is everything I thought it would be and more! It's very helpful that if comes 98% assembled. It is heavy but worth the work to install it. The helical cutter head is the best thing invented since the power drill! 2/3 of my shop is grizzly and you can't beat the quality for the price!

Great Machine 1/12/2017

Amazing machine, excellent quality. Very little setup to get it going. Very quiet running and the finish on the wood is great. Best of all, no more setting knives. I love this machine, and would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for an 8" Jointer.

Love my Grizzly planer! 7/1/2016

I've had this machine for 5 months now. Every thing about the machine is smooth! Runs graveyard quite. Planes silk smooth. Plenty of power and the quality of cut is tops! The one thing I have to point out is the digital readout is not worth a dime, at least to me. Once you set the depth of cut you never change it? At least I never do. Unless you have projects where you need to change the DOC many times you wont find the digital readout worth the trouble. I found it very hard to program and harder to figure out how to use. The readout runs on batteries. They are not recharged by the machine. They have to be monitored and replaced just like any other batteries. My jointer is against a wall so access to the battery cover is difficult. I checked the readout when I set the initial DOC. The next time I looked at it, it was two weeks later and the screen was blank the batteries were dead! Just left it dead and have never looked at it or needed to since. Great great machine just the readout is not for me. Highly recommended for all 8 inch jointing projects. I love my 495x and would buy it again in a heart beat!!! Thank you Grizzly for another great addition to my all Grizzly shop! 9 machines!
