Inconsistent table saw burning, advice please. - 17 replies
So I’ve got a wierd situation. Sometimes I get burning on my table saw, and sometimes I don’t. My setup is a G1023RL with an Infinity Super General blade. Cross cuts seem ok, not the greatest, but ok. I think any burning from the cross cuts have been cleared up by a good blade cleaning I did. For rips, it is a mixed bag. To...

Here is what termites can do ... - 7 replies
If you’re lucky enough to never have termites them I’m jealous. We bought this house ~2 years ago and it seems that all the houses on our street have been a termite buffet for the past 30 years. With finished ceilings in the basements, nobody ever really looks at joists/beams/sills unless there is a problem. My problem started w...

Table saw binding on rips - 16 replies
With the splitter and guard in place, the ripping on my G1023rl seems to be off. As i start the cut it gets progressively more difficult to feed the wood. I checked the fence and it toes out a tiny bit at the back. I jointed the board so i know it was flat on the edge/face. The only thing i noticed was the splitter leans towards the fence a ...

HF Dust Collector -- Build Quality vs Other Brands? - 20 replies
I went to HF yesterday with my 20% coupon in hand. I was going to pick up the 2hp dust collector for $199 – 20% coupon = $159. The two boxes they had in stock were severely damaged. So much so that I wouldn’t bother buying one and bringing it the 3 miles back to my house because I was 90% certain there would have been at least 1 t...

Infinity Saw Blades, package deal a good buy? - 6 replies
After doing some research and reading Knotscott’s recommendations around Lumberjocks, I’m ready to get a decent blade for my G1023RL. The blade it came with is pretty bogus. I am not good enough at woodworking to justify a dedicated rip/cross/laminate blade. I need one that will do a good job at them all. The Infinity Super Gener...

Old Grizzly G1182 6" jointer clean up - 9 replies
So I started tuning up the jointer yesterday. Unfortunately there is some pitting in the cast iron infeed table. I removed all the rust, then I tried to sand the bed smooth with some wet sandpaper. I think it is smooth enough now for operation, but the pitting left nasty stains. The fence cleaned up perfectly. All the hardware just neede...

Anti-kickback, Pro-slice-your-hands - 22 replies
Ok, so I’m almost done setting up my saw and I was working on the blade guard. I didn’t realize how sharp the anti kickback pawls actually were until I had to dig them out of my palm. Not deep enough to bleed a lot, but definitely got my attention. So my question is how many people actually use them? If they are sharp enough t...

Shop Fox Mobile Base, caster orientation? - 8 replies
So I am trying to figure out what is the best approach here. I’ve read through the manual a couple of times and I wanted to get your input. I plan on moving this saw back and forth by pushing/pulling the front of the saw. I will not be moving it left/right by pushing the wings. So I know which way the fixed wheels need to be oriented, ...

G1023RL Cast Iron Surface Damage - 43 replies
So I started cleaning the saw. Everything was going well until I got 90% of the cosmoline off the surface and I noticed this: There is a noticeable nick/ding/divot right on the edge of the main table surface. Large enough that when you run your finger over it you go .. “woah, that isn’t right”. I have two ...

Setting up shop: Grizzly G1023RL & ... ? - 8 replies
I’m pretty sure I’ll be ordering the G1023RL from Grizzly within the next couple of days. My question is should I capitalize on the X-mas sale prices and my 5% coupon and purchase another tool(s)? Some thoughts were: +G0513X2 BS. So I can get into bandsaw boxes and resawing throughout the coming year.+G0452P & DW735 plane...

CL Dewalt 735 planer - 7 replies
This person is asking $385 for a DW735 planer. It looks like it is in new condition from the picture. Assuming I would need new knives, what would the used value of this machine be? On a good sale you can catch this in the $400-$500 range easily. Link Thanks

Interesting CL Post - 3 replies
Saw this interesting post on Boston area CL this morning. Rare ebony logs from Cuttyhunk, MA shipwreck. http://boston.craigslist.org/sob/mat/3448245840.html I have no idea if $200-$600 for a log of ebony is a good price or not, but if anyone is in the area and interested I thought I’d share.

Unused Grizzly 10% Coupon? - 3 replies
I am planning a large purchase in the next couple of weeks. I have a 5% coupon from my catalog, but I was putting this out there to see if anyone has a 10% coupon that they weren’t going to use by year end. The 10% coupon will change my plans because I can buy a heavier duty machine. Here is my plan: With 5% coupon: G0452P jointer...

$2k budget, no tools, what to buy? - 31 replies
This is a new topic that is a continuation of my first post about a table saw purchase. Now that year end is here, my budget looks like it is going to be $2k for my tools. I’ve been preparing for this by running a sub-panel to the garage with a full 100amp 20 breaker box (ate $3,200 of the budget :-( ). I just sold all of my old craft...
