Positives - Easily the best value in a planer.
EH - Minnesota
Everything you need to be able to adjust, along with how to do it, is spelled out very clearly.
B. Cowger
And if I really tweak it, I can even get the thickness variations less than that.

Positives
- Easily the best value in a planer.
- The mobile base works great - very stable when stationary and moves easily when the third wheel is down.
- The table on mine is very flat and it along with the lower rollers were well adjusted out of the crate. I had to adjust everything else and that took a few hours, but not a big deal since that shouldn't occur often.
- This planer devours wood and seems to have the right amount of power to handle most anything.
- Dust collection worked well even with a smallish dust collector (500cfm).

Negatives
- You have to unassemble quite a bit to change the knives. Getting planer buddies in there to set the blades is a tight fit, but it does work. They are thicker knives, so this shouldn't be an exercise that I have to do often.
- The outfeed roller is metal with ridges for feeding that can leave a print in softer woods. I loosened the tension springs on it all the way and still had marks in pine from the gearbox end. A rubber/plastic outfeed roller would probably work much better.

I would recommend this machine to others. It is a great value and built like a tank. If you pick it up, get a robocator and planer buddy magnets. Both will save hours of setup time.

I have owned the G0453 since July '07, along with the Griz G 0490 Jointer, purchased at the same time. They helped me to build 15 kitchen base and wall cabinets for the home.

In one sentence, I absolutely LOVE this machine! It was worth every penny, and I have been satisfied with it from day one. It was a bit scary to purchase a piece of machinery this huge sight unseen, however I am glad I did. Shipping was no problem; the unit arrived completely un damaged.

It does take a few hours to install the cast iron in feed and out feed wings to make them true to the base, but it is easily do able by one person. Someday I will be adding the Index Spiral Cutterhead to the unit.

The only drawback (and this to me is a minor one because I always clean up the surface by light sanding), is that if you crank the blades down too tight, sometimes the out feed roller leaves slight ridges in the wood. I have been running only hard maple for building face frames for our kitchen cabinets, so if it leaves ridges in hard maple, it will leave them in all woods. These are easily cleaned up by hand held orbital sanding though, which you are probably going to do anyway..

However, other than that, when using a caliper to measure thickness accuracy, the thickness is dead and I mean dead on. I have been able to get variations in thickness of no greater than 1/128th of an inch (about .008) which for woodworking is excellent. And if I really tweak it, I can even get the thickness variations less than that.

As far as getting stiles and rails square is concerned, when I use this in conjunction with the jointer, when measuring edge square-ness with my Starrett precision to .000015" combination square, I can insert feeler stock of no greater than .

I ordered the "Z" version of this planer, with the indexed spiral cutterhead, but hopefully most of this will be useful information for anyone considering this machine.

It arrived nicely packaged in an all-wood crate. It's very top-heavy, and it appears that the small amount of shipping damage that I found was due to it tipping within the crate. The shipping damage was fortunately just a plastic knob (feed rate speed selector) that had been bashed into three pieces, all of which were inside the crate. As is typical, Grizzly was superb in how they handled a replacement item.

This thing is heavy! It was all two of us could do to lift it from its 3" pallet and get it down to the floor. I'd highly recommend you get a total of four people, if you can.

Much of the work in assembling is just removing the oil/grease mixture that they cover all non-painted surfaces with. For the indexed cutterhead, I ended up removing all 72 of the carbide cutters and screws so I could get the grease out of all the intricately machined features of the cutterhead. A quick dip of the cutters themselves in mineral spirits got them clean, and they install pretty quickly, especially if you set yourself up with a power driver with a torx bit. Figure on a couple hours minimum in which to set this machine up, not including adjustments.

I was impressed with how the machine came set up from the factory. I highly recommend that you either purchase a Rotocator (from Grizzly) or, if you already have a dial indicator, simply make your own sled to hold it vertically. The sled should also allow you to span the rollers and measure their height above the bed. Having some type of way to measure distances relative to the bed very accurately (to 0.
