The smaller of the two Grizzlies, the G0675 still offers wide jointing and planing capacity in a much less expensive package. Like the 12-in. Rikon, the G0675 features a single-table changeover. It’s simple but slow due to the high number of cranks needed to raise and lower the planer bed, and the design of the dust chute.
It’s the only machine I tested that has a two-knife cutterhead, a design drawback that can force a cutterhead to make fewer cuts per inch. The Grizzly compensates by spinning the cutterhead at 6,500 rpm, slightly faster than three-knife cutterheads, but the two knives are bound to dull more quickly than three would. For the price, it represents a solid value and would make a good pick for a hobbyist woodworker.
