Hey guys how you doing?long weekend and lots of rain..
I have a question with a grizzly 6Ē jointer I put it together works great.iam a little nervous using it.i think that comes with anything that has power and you show respect to the machine believe me I do respect power tools..I wanted to know after the build do I have have to do anything specific to the machine besides building it...I turned it and run a piece of scrap on it and it works great first time using one and I was a little scared...
Any thoughts on what steps to take on a jointer for a newbie..

Where is the guard? If you have been using the jointer without it I can understand being nervous. Anyway it's very good to be a little nervous around machinery. It's those that get overly comfortable around equipment that are prone to get hurt.

The experience I've had with jointers, the only thing that looks dangerous is the orange push blocks. After you use them for a while they get dusty and dirty and tend to slip. I got some with the first jointer I bought and the first time they slipped they went in the trash.

There are many sites and videos online regarding the safe use of a jointer, spend a while on them to learn both safety habits and also the technic of feeding material through the machine. Many problems with the finished result on a cut can be attributed to operator error.

Agree with Steve, ditch the orange pads and make yourself some better ones.

You have obviously read and understood the assembly instructions from the Owners Manual. Now, if you haven't already, read the operating instructions portion of the manual. You will learn much from them.

Hey Steve Freddy here whatís the longest board I can pass through the jointer.I read the entire book but didnít see anything only thing I read about anything bigger then 12inches.
I was wondering can I joint one edge on a 8ft 2x12 cut other side on table saw then pass through planer!!il
Is that about right.?
Thank you Steve

The only problem jointing long wood is there is so much leverage from the wood hanging off the end of the jointer it's difficult to hold it down so that it runs true. If you had someone hold the wood up or better make a catch table behind the jointer you could joint wood 16' long. A catch table is better because a helper would have difficulty telling if they are lifting enough or too much.

You could joint both edges of 8' 2x12's and skip the table saw. I have a 4x8 work bench in my shop that I made from gluing up 2x12 yellow pine.
