I just bought a Grizzly 0500 model, I love it. I ordered it on a Sunday night, by Tuesday morning the trucking company was calling me asking when they could drop it off. I've ordered from Grizzly over the years and havealways had great results. The jointer does great work and I'd highly recommend it. I'd have to echo the comments about running it off 220 vice 110V. (I don't think the 586 will rewire for 110) I'm military and live in base housing. My garage is my temporary workshop until I retire next year, so I plug it in to the dryer outlet. Not the most convenient set up but it works fine for now. I called Grizzly about the difference between the 0500 and the 0586 units since the prices are quite different. Their tech guy told me they are very similar except that the 0500 is made in Taiwan and the 0586 is made in Communist China. I chose the free world over subsidising the "other superpower". He said quality control is better in Taiwan than Mainland China....FWIW.
