Fit and finish were excellent. It is a very solid machine. It was
well packed, but very heavy. You'll need at least 1 other person to
put it together, 2 more would be helpful for putting the top part onto
the base. My only complaints for assembly are that aligning the
motor/belt took a little effort, and wiring the plug and switch weren't
perfectly clear to me. Otherwise, it's my favorite machine in my shop.
I set it to make very shallow cuts, and it hums right along. With 4
blades, the surface is very nice, I only do finish sanding with 320 for
those faces. I haven't put anything 8" wide throught it yet, but there
was no trouble at all with 6" oak. If I had to buy again, I wouldn't
hesitate to get the G0500. It does come covered in grease, so you
might want to get a can of degreaser. I got one from grizzly with my
order and it was totally worth it. I think it was called "Sprayway
C-60 Solvent Cleaner" part # G2544.
