« Part 15: Grizzly TS Repost & Updates Part 16 of Building My Work Shop series Part 17: He He He He I am SOOOOO Giddy!!! »

Excuse the multi posts but I am just so fracking ECSTATIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Grizzly Table Saw is Working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wooo Hooo Oh yeah do a little dance shake that rump yeah!!!!!

Amazing how easy things are to fix. I swear a year ago I would have looked at my Grizzly Table Saw for $275 and said “Oh my god what a piece of junk! No Way I would even take it for free!”. My goodness how things can change in a year.

Beat up Broken Grizzly 3HP Cabinet Saw= $275

Removing the rust and buffing the top = 90 minutes and a bunch of Elbow Grease

Cleaning out the points by the fan= a little compressed air and 10 minutes of elbow grease

A Fully functioning beautiful Grizzly G1023 Cabinet Saw that you restored with your own two hands= Priceless!!!

Wooo Hooo Hoooo Hoooo!!!!!!! Here are scenes from my first cuts!!!! Bolt balanced on end while it is started, wood is cut, then stopped!
