    The last jointer I'll ever need. Impressive. 02/02/2019 11:01:18 PM

    The G0858 Jointer arrived yesterday in a single, very large crate. I carefully opened the crate and saved all the crate pieces as suggested. The jointer is almost completely assembled. I just had to attach the switch pole. Other reviews did not mention much about unboxing and getting the jointer off the pallet. With one helper and one of those heavy appliance mover straps, the we moved jointer safely off the pallet and onto the floor of the shop. This is not a one-person job so have a friend available. The outfeed table appears to be about .002" below the cutters. I will fuss with that later if it becomes an issue. First test cuts were smooth. With wheels at all four corners, the jointer can be easily moved as necessary. Adjustment of the feet helps to keep the jointer from sliding. I noticed that the fence deflects a bit with the edge pass on rough stock after planing the first face. As others have noted, the fence should be checked for square any time it is moved. I spent some time building an extension cord out of 12-3 stock. The nearest 220 plug is about 20 feet away. The motor runs smoothly and seems to have plenty of power when face jointing. The buying and receiving experience with Grizzly sales folks and the UPS service was excellent.

    Beautiful piece of machinery 01/31/2019 10:35:43 PM

    After waiting a year for the Chinese made 8 jointers that were never in stock I decided to buy the G0858 and although it was a little more than I wanted to spend Im glad that I did. It was shipped out in 2 days and I had it in a week. After removing the top and sides of the crate I installed the lifting hooks and lowered it into my shop. After reading all the reviews of the older jointers where you had to install the motor, lineup the belt and attach the cabinet I couldnt believe this was completely assembled except for screwing in the fence handle and tilting up the on/off control. Spent about an hour checking everything and it was spot on right out of the box.

    Amazing tool! Amazing value! 01/26/2019 3:08:15 PM

    I had some reservations about getting this, but boy am I happy I did. Price was great and once I got the jointer it's incredible. Cuts like butter, quiet, powerful, and accurate. If you are in the market for a jointer this is a great option and you will not be disappointed!

    Super Jointer! 01/21/2019 5:27:33 PM

    To cut to the chase, I am very pleased with this jointer, and with Grizzly. I did have some reservations in the beginning based on my pre purchase research. I read the nightmarish comments regarding shipping and back order fiascos. In fact the initial jointer I had selected, and ordered was on "back order", and when I called to get an approximate shipping date, I was given a date eleven months in the future. That wasn't going to work for me so I cancelled that order and waited a few days, and this jointer showed in stock and available for immediate shipment (it hadn't shown available previously). I am very pleased with this product. It arrived within ten days of ordering, and the fright driver had it unloaded, and brought to my garage door before I even knew he had arrived. The jointer was crated very well, with only some minor damage to the crate (which I photo'd and documented on the bill of laden prior to signing). Assembly was straight forward and relatively quick. I have now been using it for several weeks, and the results I am achieving have exceeded my expectations. Overall a great machine which I highly recommend.

    Awesome! 01/21/2019 11:51:11 AM

    Couldnt wait to upgrade my jointer. Great product right out of the box. Was pretty much dead on. Very little adjustment needed. The spiral cutter head is so smooth. No more wrecking a full set of knives on a nail that got away.

    Amazing jointer!!! Fully recommend!!! 01/17/2019 5:00:17 AM

    I didn't consider the G0858 until my order for the G0490 kept being backordered later and later - but I couldn't be happier that it was! I LOVE the G0858!

    First, I was a bit confused when the UPS Freight driver only had one crate for me, though a very large one. I opened the crate before he left to verify what was inside, and inside was the G0858 jointer completely assembled - a quite pleasant surprise that I had missed in the description! Second, the jointer beds required very little adjustment. I went through each step, but didn't have to adjust much at all. Third, the spiral cutterhead on the G0858 is a true spiral cutterhead (looks just like a Shelix) unlike other jointers where the "spiral" cutterhead isn't spiral, but those individual carbide cutters are square to the rotation of the cutterhead. The G0858's carbide cutters are slightly angled to give that true "shearing"cut.

    As far as performance, I've jointed about 60bf or 4/4 walnut so far, and it's performance has exceeded my expectations. I don't have a single thing I'd like to improve about it. I would absolutely buy the G0858 again and would recommend it to anyone looking to buy an 8-inch jointer.

    Beyond pleased. 01/16/2019 12:06:09 PM

    I struggled with the decision on the G0858. The G0490X has been on the market for a long time and is well recommended. The 490 is made in China and has tariffs, the 858 is made in Taiwan and has no tariffs, and the G0858 is a new product, so there is no history. I spoke with Grizzlys technicians and they couldnt offer much because they had not seen one to examine it.

    But the 490X stays back ordered and I needed a jointer so I bit the bullet. I am totally pleased. It comes already assembled and well crated. It took longer to uncrate than it did to bolt on the switch and it was ready to go. I had a tractor to lift it, but chose to leverage it off the crate rather than risk bumping the tables. It is adjusted perfectly and operates very smoothly with power to spare, and leaves an outstanding smooth finish. No regret on this decision at all.

    Excellent jointer! Needed a bit of setup. 01/15/2019 2:28:19 AM

    I was in the market for an 8" jointer to replace my old 6" Delta and decided on this one since the G0490x was out of stock. It need some initial adjustments to get it tuned up bit but once that was done it works great. The biggest problem was that I was getting light ridges from the spiral cutterhead. This was remedied by removing all the inserts, blowing off the cutterhead with compressed air to remove any debris, cleaning the inserts and reinstalling them with a torque wrench set to 50 lbs. Once that was done, the work pieces come out very smooth. The fence seems to stay square when adjusting but i'll keep my eye on this as this seemed to be a common issue with the G0490x. So far, I'm very happy and impressed.

    Love this manhine 01/06/2019 8:53:38 PM

    Best deal on the internet hands down. I put dial indicator base on the indeed table and read dial indicator off out feed table three thousandth of a inch off I can live with it. I also did a test run on some maple i had it work perfectly.

    Couldn't be more satisfied 01/01/2019 11:56:03 PM

    Great fit and finish from this made in Taiwan machine, all bare metal was coated with light oil and plastic wrap, easily cleaned with a dry towel. The machine comes with lifting hooks and is wired and assembled from factory( the only thing you need to do is install bracket and switch with two bolts) . Machine was perfectly co planner right out of box and with a quarter turn on the outfeed table stop virtually eliminated all snipe on perfectly smooth finish, the fence easily and smoothly adjusts , making you actually enjoy using it. The only slight criticism I'd give is that although the machine easily rolls on the locking casters is that they don't swivel making it awkward to move around, in my case it has its home and I don't move it anyway. I don't think you can get a better machine for the money.

    Very pleased 12/28/2018 5:11:26 PM

    I'm very pleased with this item so far. I've been a pattern maker for over 40 years and have used numerous old industrial jointers. This jointer is very well made and worked properly right out of the crate. My pattern shop has very limited space so the mobility of this tool is important. This is my third power tool I've gotten from Grizzly and have been pleased with all of them.

    My only issue is the availability of jointers from Grizzly. I've been trying to buy one for a year and finally saw they were available for a short time period. This is an issue Grizzly needs to deal with.

    Got mine early in december, very impressed with the fit and finish from a made in Taiwan machine, tables were perfect co planer right out of the box. The fully already wired power switch and arm just needed to be bolted on to the stand(easier shipping), they supply two lifting hooks to lift the machine off the pallet. Very happy with power and cut, my first task was to mill a walnut log approximately 6 inches square and the finish of cut is near flawless. Love the way the fence adjusts smoothly with the turn of a knob. All bare metal was coated with light oil and plastic wrap which was easily cleaned with a towel. The only small criticism I would give is although the wheels roll so smooth you can move the machine with one hand they only roll straight so you have to slide sideways to turn, but most like me will probably not move the machine often. So far love it!

    EXTREMELY IMPRESSED 12/15/2018 10:54:25 PM

    I just got through setting up my new jointer. It arrived fully assembled and ready to go. I was very impressed! After waiting so long - I must say I'm so glad I did. The spiral cutter is a huge improvement as well as the parallelogram table! I will never go back to the dovetails! And my shop is filled with all Grizzly products, so couldn't be happier!
