Feature-Packed 6-in. Jointer | Popular Woodworking Magazine
 In Projects, Questions And Answers


Grizzly's G0604 jointer includes great features usually found on more expensive machines. At 56 in., its bed is about 10 in. longer than those on standard 6-in. jointers. As you know, every extra inch is helpful for jointing straight edges on long stock. The G0604's four-knife cutterhead spreads out the workload more than a typical three-knife cutterhead, so you can go longer between knife changes. My tired back appreciates the easy-to-reach on/off switch. I also like the extra large off paddle. A mobile base is built in, saving you the cost of adding one later.The infeed and outfeed tables operate on a parallel-ogram system, instead of sliding on dovetailed ways. It's easier to tweak the tables into alignment on parallelogram-bed jointers if needed, because shimming isn't necessary.
