I got this Jointer a week ago, and am really impressed with how well this G0725 works!! This is my first Jointer, so I was not trying to buy the most expensive unit out there... just something to learn on, while providing a quality product. Well it certainly is high on the quality of cut! I started with a scrap 2x4 about 14" long... and it came out totally smooth and flat; I was so pleased. Then red oak and poplar, with equally fine results.
I am only 4 or 5 hrs drive to the Missouri store, but I ordered and had it delivered which came very quickly. They must have put it on a truck as soon as I hung up the phone. It took little time unpacking the Jointer and setting it up. Most everything was set correctly out of the box... blades were flush to the outfeed table, which is most important. The only problem I had was with the Limit Block assembly. I called customer service, and they sent me a new set of those parts, I could not be happier with Grizzly's service, as well with the Jointer!
This is a benchtop model, and only has a 28" table length. I considered whether this would suit my needs and decided it would. My first projects include making face frame cabinets and various sizes of custom drawers. This tool should work out perfect.
