Three of the machines in my shop are from Grizzly,a 6by12 plainer, a 14" band saw and most recently a 6" jointer with the spiral carbide insert cutter head. All three machines have preformed very well and wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend them to anyone looking for either of these machines. The 6"jointer, my most recent purchase, is an excellent machine. Very quiet and leaves a surface that can be ready for finishing with just a light sanding with 320 sandpaper. I hope this review will be helpful to anyone thinking about any of these machines.
