    Grizzly G0453Z Planer Owners - A Question

    Just you Z owners or operators. I already know the G0453 is a solid platform and have no interest in a knifed machine, I already have one.

    Question - How is the material handling as far as the feed rollers go?

    That is, do you ever end up with marks (other than cutter marks) on your material after feeding it through. I am obviously asking this question out of ignorance as I have never run a serrated feed roller machine.

    And since we all like talking about the specific tools that we own (I know I do), please share ony other thoughts, tips, tweaks, " I shoulda gotta XYZ"-like statements, opinions, tirades and soap-box sessions.

    TIA,

    Glenn

    Thanks for the reminder Frank. I have tried to stop tossing out model numbers like everyone knows what they are. I slipped up . I know I am completely lost in Lathe Land when people talk numbers. I changed the title.

    3 horse 220volt, I bet it can hog off a pretty good thickness in one pass...

    I've eyed this before. I'm curious too what the minimum thickness you can plane without leaving marks, or if it always does. I'd love to replace my little ryobi with something else, but I can't make my mind up between the dewalt or one of the bigger induction motor planers, preferably with carbide cutters.

    Glenn we have a 20" powermatic at work that has the serrated feed rollers and anything less than 1/32" it will leave marks on the board. I know it's not the same machine but figure the info might be helpful anyways.

    Thanks Alan, that is good info and I will factor it in as I go .

    I guess this starts to flesh out my (probably too specific) questions. Have you G0453Z users tweaked your machines and afterward how little can you take off successfully. I have really gotten spoiled being able to take off a whisker at a time on my lunchbox machine.

    I don't own that planer, but if you don't mind me asking a question, that could help you out.....?

    Why are you wanting to take off such a "Whisker"

    I could be very wrong, not the first time, but to my mind it would be better to take that whisker with a drum sander or widebelt machine, no?
