Setting up my home workshop hit a major milestone today with the arrival of my Grizzly G0715p table saw. Like many home shops, space is a premium followed closely by mobility. Of all the saws I researched, the Grizzly provided the best set of features I was looking for and priced right.
The setup and adjustment was very straight forward. Using my carpenters level I was able to level the extensions and tune the fence in less than 30 minutes. The blade and t-slots were aligned perfectly from the factory but the tilt was off about three degrees. Nonetheless I was able to correct the tilt in minutes using my pocket square as my guide.
The fence is real nice and lives up to the Biesemeyer “like” reviews I’ve read. Having used Biesemeyer fences on other saws before, I have to say first hand I agree. The ability to easily lift the fence off the saw made alignment to the t-slot and adjusting the clamping to my liking quick work. Operation is smooth and when clamped very solid.
I did run a single 220v 20 amp outlet versus converting the motor wiring to 110v. This took longer for me to complete than the entire setup and adjustment of the saw but I’m glad I did it. My first impression of the saw when I started it for the first time was how quiet it ran. I’m looking forward to running some material through it.
