About This Product

The best valued 6 in. benchtop jointer on the market. The G0946 6 in. Benchtop Jointer features a spiral-type cutterhead for smoother finishes, quieter operation, and less maintenance compared with straight-knife cutterheads. The 12 high-speed steel (HSS) inserts sit square to the axis of the cutterhead, with the cutting edges perpendicular to the workpiece. HSS has been heat treated for hardness and wear resistance, which keeps a sharp edge longer than other carbon steels. Each 2-sided insert can each be rotated once to expose a new sharp edge. The 4-sided T32739 Replacement Carbide Inserts are available and sold in packs of ten. The overall size of the inserts making contact with the lumber reduces noise due to a smaller pattern of air being pushed by the cutterhead. The sawdust created by this machine is then finer which is less likely to create clogged dust lines. Compact in size, the G0946 has a small footprint making it easy to move from job sites and stores easily when you want it out of the way. Benchtop models have a bad reputation for being underpowered. The 1-1/2 HP motor is bigger than traditional 1 HP motor options from other brands.

Highlights

  • Spiral-type cutterhead with twelve indexable HSS inserts
  • Cast aluminum infeed and outfeed tables
  • Infeed table height adjustment lock
  • Built-in dust collection system with 2-1/2 in. dust port

    Q:Does it eject chips on its own?
    by|Aug 23, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for your question. The G0946 - 6" Benchtop Jointer with Spiral-Type Cutterhead is not equipped with an integrated dust extractor. Therefore, it requires the connection of a dust collection system to its port while in operation.

          Clean finish
          Spiral planer leaves a very smooth finish and works very well. Unfortunately the table may be a little soft as even soft pine leaves scratches that you can feel in the surface of the table.

          Better than I expected
          I received this as a gift this last Christmas and finally got a chance to use it to process wood for a project. I ran a good bit of S2S oak and it performed flawlessly. The finish was super smooth, and the angles were a perfect 90°. Set up was easy out of the box and there was pretty minimal machine oil on it. Enough to keep it protected but I was able to wipe it down in just a couple minutes. I could not have asked for a better machine for this price point. Also the dust collection works really well and I hardly had any chips on my benchtop with it hooked up to my dust collector using the two and a half inch port.

            5 out of five stars, no doubt.
            I am just a hobbyist right out of the box. Easy setup squared it up and was cutting in 10 minutes. Unbelievable tool. My only complaint is I should have waited for the 8-in that were back ordered. The six will do me fine but as soon as I used it I said imagine what the eight would be. Very impressed. Very happy.

            It's wonderful to know that the setup was a breeze, and you were up and cutting within just 10 minutes. We understand your curiosity about the 8" version, and while the 6" suits your needs, it's always exciting to imagine the possibilities with larger tools. Should you ever decide to upgrade or have any questions in the future, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to assist you and ensure your continued satisfaction. Thank you for choosing our tool, and we wish you many more enjoyable and productive hours of woodworking ahead!

            The cutter heads keep coming loose and leaving lines in my wood. Piece of garbage.
            by
            Response from Grizzly Customer ServiceMay 10, 2024
            We take quality and reliability seriously, and we're sorry to hear about the trouble encountered with the cutterheads. If the cutters are loosening, please ensure that the inserts are inserted correctly. These cutters only have two sides, and the back edge must be properly seated before tightening. Verify that they are tightened correctly to 48lbs. Apply a small amount of Loctite for added security. Please reach out to the manufacturer if this does not correct the situation. Thank you for sharing your feedback.

            Light weight
            Have a full shop and needed something lighter for fine tuning trim on the job was making some 3/4” spruce pine trim. the first time I used it the pine knots gouged the tables. I can’t believe they used something so soft my table saw doesn’t get gouges. Ow it leaves ridges in the wood. would have been better with Formica glued plywood. If you have a good back get cast iron.

            We are sorry to hear about the markings after using the benchtop jointer. This machine is intended for lighter-duty tasks. Please reach out to our team directly to discuss your options to remedy your concerns. We'll take your comment into consideration as we continue to refine our machine. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.
              The table is short and I couldn’t find extensions for the table. It works well and is quite. I had difficulty with lumber over 20 inches.

              Benchtop units are designed to be more compact and portable, making them ideal for smaller projects and workshops with limited space. While we understand that the jointer's limitations can be frustrating when working with longer stock, we hope that the machine has still been able to serve its purpose for your smaller projects. Please reach out to our Customer Service team directly with any questions you may have.
