This 8" Jointer is perfect for both professional and hobbyist woodworkers. The 76-3/8" bed with parallelogram tables for precision adjustment, extra-long infeed table, and the huge 5" tall fence will help you efficiently surface plane and joint the perfect edges every time. The 4-knife cutterhead gives you 33% more cuts per minute than comparable three-knife models and leaves a smoother finish that requires less sanding. Not only will you get great results with the G0490, but it's a joy to operate with its easy-to-reach pedestal-mounted switch, lever-controlled table elevation, built-in foot-pedal operated mobile base for portability in a crowded shop, and an oversized welded steel cabinet, which makes for an incredibly stable cutting platform. This machine will surface plane and joint smooth, flat edges all day long.

Amazing customer service 05/04/2019 7:23:16 AM

It took a LONG time to get this jointer. I ordered in March of 2018, and got a call in March of 2019 that is was ready to ship. After a full year, I'd almost forgotten about it.
When UPS arrived with it, the driver gave me a funny look, then opened the back of the truck. My heart sank. After waiting a year for this thing, what arrived was a crate broken in half, loose parts laying in the delivery truck, and a slightly damaged box containing the base.

The damage was so severe I was a bit unsure what to do ( I should have called Grizzly ). I did accept it, and noted damage on the slip. It wasn't until reading the manual and unpacking instructions that I realized just how badly things had gone. The jointer had clearly come completely out of the crate, and put back in upside down, the whole thing was being lifted by the table surfaces rather than the base. The fence was not even in the crate.

There ended up being multiple missing pieces, and damaged parts. Grizzly was utterly amazing at quickly responding to the problem. They looked at the damage, asked me technical questions, and shipped out replacement parts, including parts I had not thought of related to the damage. During final adjustments, I found more damage that had gone unnoticed (internal). Again they quickly shipped these parts at no cost.

While this started out as a rough experience, their customer service turned it around completely. I could not be happier.
So happy that I'm now ordering a table saw (in stock this time, do watch out for the long wait on backorderd items).

Love this Jointer! 04/16/2019 8:03:48 PM

Im a little ashamed to say that I have never owned a jointer prior to purchasing the G0490 parallelogram jointer. I have been wanting to add a mid sized jointer to my arsenal of shop equipment for years. Now that I have it (G0490) Im not really sure how I was getting by without one all this time. Believe it or not I have been a cabinet maker woodworker since 2004, I used many other means (much less efficient) to joint & straighten stock, and never really thought about how much time I was wasting in not owning a jointer.
I have probably ran close to 1000 ln ft of material through it in the last month alone.
Set up was a breeze, I believe this was primarily due to the machine being very well calibrated out of the box. The machine showed up set to perfect parallelism, all I had to do is adjust outfeed table to correct height with cutter head. As with all my Grizzly equipment I love the G0490. Two thumbs up from this guy.

Very Nice Machine! Poor quality control with factory calibration settings. 01/02/2018 3:30:01 PM

I received this jointer about a month ago and overall it is a great machine. It's very solidly built and produces very good results. The only disappointment I have with the machine is that nearly all of the factory alignment and calibration settings were off due to most(almost all) of the bolts not being tight. Some of them were actually so loose that they could be turned without needing any tools. Even the spring in the blade guard was off and had to be adjusted and the bolt tightened so that the guard would go back into place after being pulled away from the fence. As a result, it took many hours to get the jointer set up and calibrated properly. If not for these issues, I would have given this jointer a 5-star rating.
Now that everything is set up properly, I think this jointer will be a great addition to my shop and expect it to be a very reliable machine.

I had a 6inch grizzly jointer and replaced it with this 8inch. I love it and it works great

We run a small, custom furniture shop. We already have your 17" band saw, 8" jointer, and flap sander. All are working well. Thank you!

WOW 06/02/2017 2:09:06 PM

I finally got the machine in the shop and set up all I can say is WOW it is a super smooth running machine and mills the wood like glass. Very quiet just a very well engineered machine<br /><br />I wish I could say the same for UPS Express, never ran into to bigger liars, ended up wasting almost two days for delivery
