I have seen posts on Lumberjocks re- the Grizzly G1023Sl so I don’t need to tell anyone that it is a nice cabinet saw. I really wanted a Unisaw but come on, a new cabinet saw for 800 bucks. I ordered and assembled the saw. It only took a few hours for my wife and me to assemble it. I took the cosmoline off with mineral spirits despite somebody‚Äôs suggestion to use WD40. I think that I made the right choice. It will be a few weeks before I get a 220 line to run it. (I have to go out of town for awhile.) But I digress. If you have been looking for a 3 HP cabinet saw, it’s hard to beat this sale.

Congrats on your new toy. I use lacquer thinner to clean off the cosmoline.

I’ve had a Griizzly for several years and no problems with it. Good people to deal with.

The cosomoline is the petroleum Jelly / weak tar stuff that is put on bare metal surfaces in order to prevent rust. A nasty item that we usually see on a freshly issued firearm in the military. Trust me, when you get a new tool that has a tabletop, it will be covered with it.

Thanks for the congrats – I am excited….

Have fun with the new saw, Recut. It’s hard to wait to get to use a new tool, but it’s usually worth the wait. We’re like kids waiting for a new gift from Santa. New toys are always my favorites.

a1Jim-

I’m about 8 days ahead of you with my 1023SL. I used a single-edged razor blade to remove 95% of the cosmoline from the top and wings. It worked great. A little bit of mineral spirits quickly too care of the rest.

Since I saved so much on the saw, I bought the tenoning jig. Getting the cosmoline off that item was a real bear…

Enjoy!
