Was about to order a Grizzly 1182Z jointer, then read a review of 6"
jointers, the Grizzly scored "Poor" in fit and finish. Then others posted
links to a couple of other low $$$ jointers worth looking at. I ordered the
Yorkcraft 6" jointer from Wilke's for $299 on sale with their half price
shipping (~800+ miles for $40). I chose the Yorkcraft (Delta 37-195 (scored
high on the review) with Yorkcraft name) because of the larger fence,
~4-3/4" X 35". If I find I need to, I'll add some table extensions at a
later time. Total damages are $339 delivered for the equivalent of a Delta
37-195 6" Jointer.
I didn't get any comments on the Grizzly G0555 "Ultimate 14" Bandsaw" so I
figure on ordering one of those early in the week.
