It’s perfect! Nice and square, flat and tapped properly. I’ve installed it and the fence, resquared the blade to the table (under a thou) and that’s all I had time to do today. I need to get the fence parallel, and then I’m good to start working.
This was a dreadfully busy weekend so that’s all I had time to do, but I’m happy! I have a fully functional Grizzly 0690 in my shop!
Now here is the funny bit. I now have two excess guide tubes. One is about 62” the other 80”. These are nice square iron tubes, fairly heavy (20 and 25lbs or so) and I have no idea what to do with them. Grizzly hasn’t asked for them back although I would be happy to ship them back if they’d like them. If they don’t what do I do with them?
Central beam in a torsion box work table? Hang em up in the rafters with a bunch of magnetic hooks and use them as tool storage? I have no clue!
-- I'm just learning how to cut the stuff with some other stuff...
