    I think a key setting, that has not been shown in any rabbiting videos, is that the knives have to be flush or slightly past the front of the outfeed table. slightly towards the opperator. I tried this on my router anf the board butted up against the ledge of the outfeed. . I wish youtube let commentors post pics. Its hard to explain what I mean.

    I’ve had nothing but issues from a grizzly industrial product. My wife and I drove over 5 hours, and spent over $1200 at the Grizzly showroom in Missouri. Honestly the showroom is amazing. The product I got…not so much. I’ve had over 10 separate issues including defective, and back ordered parts sent to me. Grizzly did offer me $100 to keep the pos 😂😂😂. I like high quality tools, and won’t hesitate to spend the money on them. Powermatic, Jet, SCM, felder, festool, saw stop etc. I like decent hand tools such as snap on, Milwaukee, dewalt, and I even think husky is decent due to being able to swap tools easily when they break one the job. We even have some harbor freight tools that I think are very very good. My experience with grizzly has been unsatisfactory at best. Not to mention they will not post my review on their actual website. Hopefully my review will help someone looking for equipment.

    Damn…I have this exact same Jointer and had no idea you could do that with it. I watched endless videos about this jointer before I purchased it and never…I mean not even one time…did anybody ever mention this. Really appreciate the video.
