I am in dire need of a jointer (among many other things). The Grizzly seems to
have a decent reputation and the price is quite fair I think. I have about
1000.00 to be split between a jointer and a new table saw. I now have a POS
Craftsman that worked well for its purpose.
My rational was that I want to spend the bulk of the money on the TS (either a
used Uni or possibly General). Of course I would like to have an 8" jointer,
but price dictates the quality of the TS.
Am I going about this correctly, and what are owners (I appreciate people's
responses, but I don't want to hear any "Grizzly is sh1t" from someone who
never used this product). Also, are the handwheels preferable over the levers?
I just assumed the wheels were better.
Thanks for replies. I'll read all with interest.
