Changing bearings in Grizzly G1023 motor. - 5 replies
Recently aquired G1023, makes a nasty noise upon startup. Took off the fan shroud, as well as the fan and started it up. Still makes noise. Like a grinding noise. When spinning by hand i can feel some grittyness, not bad but its apparent. Is this something i could tackle myself? I keep trying to find articles relating to it, but all i can fin...

Table saw screeching sound. - 4 replies
Tore my saw down to clean it, decided to see if there were any noises present with just the motor. It makes a loud noise near the fan. Is this a sign of bad bearings? I checked to see if it was the fan hitting something but it’s not.

Infeed/outfeed table sizes. - 15 replies
Im curious what everyone uses for infeed and outfeed tables. Due to my limited shop space now, its roughly 35’ x 12’. Quite enough to get around.

Just picked up an older G1023 grizzly. Looks like one of the middle belts is a little stretched out. Figure for the cost might as well change em. Never done this before so was looking for some guidance on what to get and how to change them. Also, is there anything else i should check out? Thanks.

Any engineers out there? Gas spring question - 17 replies
Hopefully someone a lot smarter than i at this can help. I’m going to build a plane till, and instead of wasting space behind the trough for the planes, I’d like to make it hinged with extra shelves behind.
