Any ideas how much it'll go up? I was in this same situation last year at
Christmas time with my 1023SL. Order now or pay more next week type thing.
Given the G0500 was up around $800 I suspect this one will jump to that
point as well but just guessing.
I've got the 586 and like it. So far I've only run about 50 bf of walnut
through it. The boards were all five feet long or longer and it was really
easy. After years with a little vintage sears 4-incher I thought there'd be
more of a trick to it. Very serious piece of machinery.
There was a rumor that the beds on these weren't stress relieved, but it
turned out actually be a rumor. :-)
You can get more if you search on "G0586" at google groups. The 586
especially has been much discussed.
I've had one for about 6 weeks. It replaced my Grizzly 6". Only have run
about 40 bd ft of hard maple through it. Works great. I had to reset 2
of the knives.
STRONG Hint when assembling: Hook up the motor wiring BEFORE you mount
the jointer to the base. That way you can turn the base upside down and
actually see what you are doing. I followed the steps in the manual and
mounted the jointer first. Then had to wire the motor laying on my back
looking through a mirror. 5 minute job turned into an hour.
