My Beginning Days #4: Grizzly Tent Sale #1

05-20-2014 02:00 PM by Kaa162 | 8 comments »

I went to the Grizzly tent sale this weekend in PA. It was quite the experience. First, I spoke to a rep on the phone who suggested that I get there about an hour ahead of time… Try 2-3 hours. By the time we go there, there were at least 200 people in front of us. By the time the tent sale opened, the line was SUPER long. When the clock struck 8am, you have never witnessed a line move as fast as this one. We were so far back and yet it took seconds ...

G0555X Bandsaw Drama

02-28-2014 05:45 PM by RandyinFlorida | 8 comments »

My brand new Grizzly Bandsaw (re: toy) was to be delivered on Wednesday by a certain shipping company (not DOWNS but…). Anyway, on Wednesday they left a note on my door that they would try again Thursday. So I took off work for the whole day. By 4PM I was a little concerned; I went on line, traced my shipping number, confirmed that it would be delivered in fact on Thursday. So I waited… Six o’clock; still no saw. Called the 800 number on the back of the note. A very p...

Woodshop Build #1: Table Saw

02-22-2014 12:18 AM by VarnellWoodworks | 5 comments »

Just like many woodworkers out there, I am obsessed with my tools. They perform a function in my shop but they are more than just functional. They provide a sense of pride and aesthetic beauty that only my fellow woodworkers can understand. We spend countless hours mulling over specs. reviews, online videos, pricing, and countless other factors to find that perfect addition to the shop. When we find that perfect hand tool or piece of machinery, we obsess over fine tuning, adding accessori...

Grizzly G0715p #1: Setting up shop

06-13-2013 06:59 AM by bcurlee | 3 comments »

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 ...

Can any of you brilliant, engineering types help a dumb, little old lady with TS V-belt questions?

03-20-2013 06:24 PM by lightweightladylefty | 19 comments »

I recently replaced the 5-HP motor on my Grizzly right-tilt table saw. (To be honest, my husband did because this weakling couldn’t lift 65 pounds.) I figured it was a good idea to replace the belts, too, so I ordered a set from Grizzly along with the motor. I’ve now gotten 3 sets of belts from Grizzly and none of them match my old, original belts. My original belts were FM-26. The first belts sent were 3V-250 which were the same configuration but too short. When I called b...

Picked up quite a bit of free scraps

08-08-2012 12:23 PM by Jason™ | 4 comments »

Hello fellow LJ’s I just wanted to write a short message and see if I could get some ideas for some small beginner projects to work on and also post on here to get some constructive criticism to help me learn better techniques and also become better at what im really interested in trying to accomplish. Now for the scraps I got recently, I went to a local wood craft place where they make custom built ins such as cabinets, ent. centers, etc.. The gentleman I spoke with was very h...
