Grizzly Jointer/Planer West Linn OR

Put together a 12-in. planer and a 12-in. jointer and what have you got? A two-in-one combination machine that's perfect for a small shop. European woodworkers have long been enthusiastic about these compact machines, but they haven't made much of an inroad in the U.S. Grizzly is about to change that, for two reasons: low price and a spiral carbide-insert cutterhead.

Put together a 12-in. planer and a 12-in. jointer and what have you got? A two-in-one combination machine that's perfect for a small shop. European woodworkers have long been enthusiastic about these compact machines, but they haven't made much of an inroad in the U.S. Grizzly is about to change that, for two reasons: low price and a spiral carbide-insert cutterhead. A spiral cutterhead can produce an incredibly smooth surface in the toughest woods. Best of all, it doesn't take forever to change knives. When they get dull, you just rotate all of the small, square knives one-quarter turn. If one gets nicked, you loosen it and turn it. The G0634 comes with a 5-hp motor and sells for $2,295. (A less expensive version, the G0633, has a standard 3-knife cutterhead and sells for $1,795.) It weighs 672 lbs., which means it contains plenty of cast iron to cut down on vibration. The jointer's bed is 59-1/2 in. long. It's fence is quite tall, at 5-7/8 in. high. This powerful planer can make a 12-in. wide cut, 1/8-in. deep. The 220-volt motor requires a 30-amp breaker.
