Some of our professional members have been so kind to purchase, install, and calibrate this Grizzly jointer upgrade. This jointer will allow flattening stock up to 16" wide, a big improvement over the previous antique 12" it replaces.
The helical head helps reduce tear out and helps us achieve maximum flatness. We've been finishing some electrical upgrades and the machine has been calibrated. The sawdust evacuation arrives tomorrow so it should be all ready go some time this weekend. Come give it a spin!
Jointers are precision machines that require the out feed table to be perfectly matched to the height of the blade. With that said, never ever for any reason touch the dial on the left! Depth of cut is handled by the dial on the right. If you've been certified on the previous jointer, that carries over to the new equipment. Of course feel free to ask IsGood staff if you have questions. Enjoy your flatness.
