Grizzly G0452P Jointer Set-Up #4: Serious Fence Issue

07-19-2015 07:25 PM by ERQ | 5 comments »

When assembling the fence for the jointer, you need to place the fence on the table in order to have clearance to insert and tighten the screws holding the fence bracket to the fench carriage that rides on the “ram” (the rack-and-pinion steel post): I noticed upon installing the fence, that there was a lot of play in the fence, but that the default position it wanted to settle at was with pretty uneven gaps at the infeed table side vs the outfeed table side, even with the i...

Grizzly G0452P Jointer Set-Up #2: Very minor damage

07-14-2015 04:05 PM by ERQ | 2 comments »

As I noted in my first post in this series, one of the two boxes containing my Grizzly G0452P jointer had some damage upon delivery. Here is the state of things when i opened the box up: And once I lifted off the top layer of styrofoam: As you can see, that white bracket, which is for the fence mount, was basically free to bounce around and bang into the jointer outfeed table next to it. Overall, I was pretty lucky, in that there was only one small ding taken out of the fence si...

Grizzly G0452P Jointer Set-Up #1: Delivery

07-13-2015 06:08 PM by ERQ | 3 comments »

I recently ordered Grizzly’s G0452P Jointer for the small shop I am attempting to set up in my one-car garage. I haven’t even fully assembled it yet, so we’re a long way off from a real review, but I thought it might be useful to someone to chronicle what it’s like to order, take delivery of, and assemble a Grizzly product. I am writing this for people, like me, who’ve never had to deal with the delivery of a (for me, anyway) major piece of machinery and the asso...

Replace foam seal on G0548Z Dust Collector

03-14-2015 06:01 PM by Core2 | 0 comments »

I bought the dust collector used over the summer. The only thing needing my attention on it was the foam seal that the bag seals on. It was highly compressed and no longer in its original position. I Scrapped it all off and replaced it with some door seal foam tape I got at the big box store. Before: You can see the dust patterns showing where it leaks During: After: Now it seals like it should. No leaks. I even had enough tape left over to seal around my table saw door. I ...

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 ...
