I have very bad luck with Table Saws.
To my delight, UPS delivered the replacement guide tube on Friday afternoon, so I popped out to the shop early this morning to install it. I was honestly thinking the box looked quite big, and once I started opening it, I realized why.
Grizzly sent me the 80” tube from the G0691, not the 60” tube from the G0690. Cripes. So, I called in and had my warranty case reopened, and I’ll get a call back Monday.
In the meantime, I figured I could install the old tube with two screws instead of the three that it uses and see if it would be stable enough to do some light cutting and get my DC cart going. Once I started turning allen keys I realized that I don’t have one mis-tapped hole on the old tube, I have two. Cripes again.
So today was spent drilling the new plate for my router table. That, at least, went well, and my router now has some much beefer 3/4” bolts holding it to the phenolic plate. Yay.
So not a total loss of the morning, but man Grizzly had better get it right this time.
