Hey Flint: welcome aboard.
I don't have a Grizzly jointer yet...I'll be heading to Springfield, MO next week to make my big purchases for my new shop.
My jointer will be the G1182ZHW. I think it's one heckuva deal for the money. I'm sold on the handwheel table adjustment. What I'm wondering is this---is a parallelogram cutter head worth the extra money? Almost $800 for the model you quoted....looks like a great machine, no doubt. What made you go towards the higher end? Do you do a lot of production runs? Semi pro, professional?
Please don't take my asking as second guessing your decision...I'm only wondering if I'm missing something and should I be considering a larger model?
thanks and good luck,
