Very happy 12/13/2018

Before I bought this Jointer I read every piece of information I could find on Grizzly. I made sure I knew what I was getting before I purchased this machine and now that I have it I couldnt be happier. Grizzly kept me informed throughout the purchase and delivery of the status of my order. The friendly and professional delivery driver brought the shipping crate right up to my garage door. We followed the manual instructions on how to lift the Jointer with a forklift so we could attach the mobile base (Shop Fox Super heavy duty with extension bars). Once we got it into our garage we cleaned it off with a bunch of citrus based cleaner. Assembly was as expected and it did not take long. Both tables were within spec so I started it up and ran some pine and maple through it and it worked perfectly. Im so glad I went with a 12 Jointer, it doesnt take up much more space than a 8 model. I would highly recommend considering this Jointer if your in the market for a new machine. I will be purchasing more equipment from Grizzly in the future. Thank you Grizzly!

Love it! 9/30/2018

I bought this about a month ago, wanted to give it a good test run before writing a review. It's substantially less money than anything else in its class, so I never expected it to be the best out there. But honestly for the price you can't go wrong, it even has the spiral cutterhead!
My biggest complaint is the amount of shipping grease mine was covered in. I have a few other grizzly tools and they were easy to clean, I had about 5 hrs into degreasing this, most spent on the cutterhead. Had to remove every cutter and clean every blade, every screw, and all the tiny indents that hold the cutters in place with q tips. If you dont get all the grease and it gets on your project it can leave fish eyes in your finish. I wish it shipped with the cutterhead not attached and not covered in grease.
I think the way the switch is mounted is a weak point and I'm going to figure out a way to reinforce it. I use two hands when turning it off and on, one to brace the box and one to press the switch. It's a head scratcher as to why they allowed it to have so much play and didn't design some reinforcement into the design.
My tables needed almost no adjustments and it does a phenomenal job of jointing lumber. It's really nice being able to joint stuff wider than 8" and it's really increased my production as i dont have to rip wider boards to 8" anymore. And i can do some really nice projects that call for wider planks such as farmer's tables.
I'm very happy with my purchase and haven't been let down by a Grizzly machine yet.
Beware, it's extremely heavy. I don't know how I woukd have unpacked it with out my tractor. It comes bolted down to the shipping crate and has to be lifted off. Id borrow or rent one otherwise .

One problem 4/14/2018

Overall very nice machine, leaves a straight edge with high-quality finish. Agree with another reviewer the fence must be adjusted back to square every time you slide it in or out. If you come back to the same position it was in it will be square. If you move it to accommodate wider board or get away from a nick in the cutter head it is not square. Fairly minor problem as it is easy to adjust. I always check my other joiners when I move the fence. Infield and outfield tables came aligned to the cutterhead no adjustment was necessary. High quality machine

Just as Described in the Grizzly Catalog 2/20/2018

I ordered the G0609X 12" Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead in May of 2017, anticipating delivery in July because it was out of stock. As expected it was delivered at the end of July. The crated jointer weighed nearly 1000 pounds but the delivery driver brought it up my driveway and put it right in my shop. It was well packaged and everything looks like I expected. I have a small shop and had used a Craftsman 6.25" jointer for 25 years. I had decided to replace it with an 8" jointer but when I saw the 609X I realized that for a few hundred dollars more I could get a 12" jointer. I thought maybe it would be overkill but eventually decided to go with this one. I'm glad I did. The 12" width comes in handy as soon as you have anything wider than 8" and the nearly 7' length pays off as soon as you want to edge joint anything longer than 4 or 5 feet. The spiral cutterhead is quite, sharp and maybe a little scary at the end of a wide board face cut. The jointer itself is massive and seems to be built very well. The outfeed table was perfectly adjusted to cutterhead height on delivery. The infeed table is perfectly co-planar with the outfeed table. The fence was dead-on square with the tables. The depth adjustment handle is a little bit of a reach but that is not an issue. I was concerned that the switch support would be wobbly but it is constructed of substantial tubular steel and is bolted into the back of the cast steel making it quite steady. I have not tested the parallelogram adjustments but the entire device feels strong so I'm guessing that part is OK, too. I bought an automatic feeder to help me keep my hands and arms away from the cutterhead but have not installed it yet. I've had this machine for around 6 months now and I am very happy with it so far. I would buy it again. This is my fifth or sixth stationary grizzly tool and I'm overall happy with them. I recommend this product to anyone who has room and a potential use for it. I found that 8.25 inch material shows up more often than I expected. Grizzly doesn't seem to have a mobile base for it but that will not be difficult to build. The push blocks are essentially the same as the ones I had for the 6.25" Craftsman jointer and they seem a little small for this one. You'll probably be making some bigger ones for this jointer.

Only been able to run a few boards through it but so far so good. Had to deal with inept people at the freight company, and when I finally got the jointer it had a bad motor that kept tripping the breaker. Spent 2 hours on the phone with Grizzly troubleshooting and they were very helpful. New motor came and now it works just fine.

Love it. 8/12/2017

Both it on sale despite back order and it was worth the wait. Delivery was an issue as I live on a dead end street so I had to pick it up at trucking company site. Good neighbors with tractors helped get it into shop. All factory settings seemed on spec. No adjustments needed.

Jointer 6/5/2017

Product works great, it's a little to heavy for the mobile base though
