I discovered, while building my prototype cabinet, that I need a new tool!! My contractor saw just won’t cut it (sorry for the pun). So after researching the you know what out of the TS market I’ve decided to stick with Grizzly and try their new G0651 (pic below).
The only down side to this is I will have to wait 4-6 weeks before these new saws are shipping. This is a real bummer as I’m making progress on this project but to tell you the truth there are really no other saws that offer the same features for the money. Not only does it have a riving knife and digital blade tilt read out but is has an out-feed table included. These may seem simple to some but they are features i would never buy on my own separately.
This saw is huge at 91 inches across and will turn my garage/shop into a full time shop. I’m still hoping with a little disassembling and a roller base that I can store it out of the way for the winter months when I won’t really be using it.
Well, I’m hoping this will take no longer than 4-6 weeks like Grizzly said. This will slow my project down but won’t stop it. I’m hopefully meeting with my ply-wood supplier this week. I think the ply-wood for this remodel will cost more than the saw!
BTW once I get the new saw I will be looking to sell my Rigid contractor saw. Anyone ever have any luck selling these on the Internet?
