Awwwwwww. That’s SO cool, Rand !!!

We humbly request/firmly demand/totally expect … full pics and a full review, once you get some board-feet on ‘er !

I’m counting on it being okay for ME (disabled) to ask, but … will you have to lower it, or make any other mods to it ???

I’ve had a G0691 – the G0690 with longer rails – for a couple years now…and I love it….it was almost perfect out of the box….required only minor adjustments (a tweak to make the angle correct – 90degree was 90.2…45 was 45.3 – the runout was almost nonexistent).....it starts up soft (wouldn’t even knock over a dime if I could get one to stand up by itself). It powers through every wood I have thrown at it without even a whimper….that 3hp Leeson is something.

You will really enjoy this saw. I would recommend you put a WWII on it as soon as you can….or at least a good Freund. Also – be ready with your degreaser….they really slap it on at Grizzly (keeps the saw nice….but a bit of a pain to clean up).

We’ll be looking forward to seeing your new projects once you get this bugger up and running.

fly me in share a little scotch and I will stay for a week to confuse you
while you try to assample it and fine tune to the first cut …. not tuching a finger
and I promisse you will never get there …... and beg for and old prestine 4pr inch diston ripsaw …. LOL

big congrat´s with emptying the wallet and it not even Chrismas yet :-)

and yes I second Neil but its not humble ….. its a demand to know it …... :—))

take care my freind and rush very very very slow read the manuel 20 times before lifting the first
screw and bolt and then 20 times more befor the next set and then 20….. do you get the picture :-)
did I say read 20 times before even start unpacking …. yes its serious things you try to deal with

you have three options 1. fly me in and you never get there , 2. send for a quickworking group
with four masterdegreed persons in translation , math, maschinist and woodwrecking and you never get there
or do it you self and ….........maybee you will get to the point of making sawdust :-)
and having the demand hanging over your head

did you expect such a bragging go unnoticed in silence

take care
Dennis

Patron, Neil might insist upon something tie-dyed, Deadhead and all:) I’ve admitted on numerous times to being petty when it comes to appearance (after all, I am beautiful so why shouldn’t everything around me). This is a GOOD looking saw. I mean, that’s a good looking saw. I’m starting to understand the Grizzly freakout.
