I bought a little over a month ago and I'm very glad that I did. My shop is set up in a double car garage and I had been using a bench top jointer. I never did like the thing and because of that I'd rarely use it...but it worked and was better than nothing on the rare occasions that I'd use it. I knew I wanted and really did need a jointer but some of the prices made me shy away because like I said, I had gotten into the habit of not using it and using other methods of jointing my work pieces. Then one day I was looking around on the Grizzly website and came across this little gem and without much thought pulled the trigger and bought it. I really didn't know what to expect but in less than a week it arrived at my house and was unloaded into my garage. I unboxed it and let me tell you, it is beautiful. No damage to anything, no scratches, the finish was perfect and in a couple of hours it was up and running. I had to fiddle with the fence and outfeed table a bit to get them dialed in but other than that it was perfect. Tables are flat and true and co-planer, all the parts where accounted for, assembly was straight forward using the instructions and I was able to assemble it by myself...maybe I just got lucky but I the machine I received was absolutely perfect cosmetically. I know, it's a machine who cares, but after using that little bench top when I saw this...I almost cried...lol. Anyway I hooked up dust collection to it and ran a test piece over it and wow...it was quiet, smooth, gave a glass smooth, flat & perfect surface and after turning it off, it wasn't snowing wood chips in my shop...the dust collection is phenomenal...I am so happy with this jointer, it has by far exceeded my expectations and I'm glad I have it.
