G0947 8" Benchtop Jointer with Spiral-Type Cutterhead
The best valued 8" benchtop jointer on the market.
The G0947 Benchtop Jointer has as 8" cutterhead providing the same capacity as a typical floor model-style jointer, without taking up all the floorspace. The compact size makes it easy to move between job sites and is easy to store.
The spiral-type cutterhead provides smoother finishes, quieter operation, and less maintenance compared to straight-knife cutterheads.
The cutting edges of the 16 high-speed steel (HSS) inserts sit perpendicular to the workpiece. Each two-sided insert can each be rotated once to expose a new sharp edge. HSS has been heat treated for hardness and wear resistance, which keeps a sharp edge longer than other carbon steels.
The two-sided T32739 Replacement Carbide Inserts are available and sold in packs of ten. The overall size of the inserts making contact with the lumber reduces noise due to a smaller pattern of air being pushed by the cutterhead.
The sawdust created by this machine is then finer which is less likely to create clogged dust lines. Coming standard with a 4" dust port, the G0947 includes a 2-1/2" dust port adapter which is handy for smaller collectors or larger shop vacs in garage-size woodshops.
The 1-1/2 HP motor is bigger than “traditional” 1 HP motor options from other brands.
The bars extend the overall table size from 34" to 52" and can be locked by-hand at any point in between to support the workpiece.
They provide more support for long workpieces than other benchtop models and also double as handles for carrying the machine.
Lightweight and ready for the job site or in the garage.
Like all Grizzly jointers, the G0947 comes with a 1-year warranty covering parts and assuring the unit is free from factory defects.
The G0947 manual was written by our U.S. based Documentation Department is packed with useful information.
