The Grizzly G0654 jointer has received extremely high praise form online reviewers and raters. There were so many features that consumers were pleased with that it is impossible to pick just one from the list. Many spoke of the product’s simple assembly, as well as its ease of operation, while others boasted on its ability to move without trouble. The one trait this jointer has that everyone seemed pleased with was its quality for the price. Since this jointer is less expensive than most other similar jointers, it was a pleasant shock when customers saw the extremely well-put together and high-quality tool that they ordered.

Many of these same online reviewers did have one common complaint. They felt that the manufacturer had used too much Cosmoline (or packing grease) when packing the Grizzly G0654 Jointer. The packing grease was on almost every part in the box, and it took buyers more time to clean that up than the actual assembly of the product seemed to take. Once the grease was cleaned, however, the same online reviewers were extremely pleased with the function and operation of their new jointer.

Pros:

  • Easy to move and put away
  • Heavy and stable
  • Quiet operation
  • Fast assembly with good instructions
  • Powerful motor
  • Three knife cutter-head provides fast and precise cutting
  • Great table size
  • Extremely affordable, high-quality tool
  • Extremely effective dust-collection that keeps your lungs clean and clear

Cons:

  • More packing grease is used than is needed
  • Blade guard sticks occasionally when cutting thinner boards
