Wheels or levers that is the question. I’m going to by a 6″ jointer. I have my eye on the Grizzly G1182Z. There is also the same machine with handwheels for $100 more. The G1182Z is now reduced to $325 plus $55 for shipping. I guess the question is are the handwheels worth an extra $100? I’m mostly a weekend warrior so I’m not in the shop all the time… although I’d like to be. I’m just looking for some feedback as to the difference between handwheels and levers. Also if anyone has this machine, what is your experience. I know that most Grizzly products in general seem to be a great value.
Thanks for any replies.
