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 - 6 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...

I watched this fall from $175 and I just confirmed $100 if I want it. He did say there is some surface rust on the stand. Thoughts? Link. I think it is a g1182 model from comparing to other pictures.

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

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...

No bench? No problem - 8 replies
I just stumbled across these pictures and I though I’d share. During my Japanese saw horse project all I had to work on was a shop bench and an old workmate. I needed to do some planing, and I couldn’t get a setup that was sturdy enough. So I remember reading the Toshio odate book about how they would just slam a board into a wa...

I am trying to move my older equipment to make way for my new purchases. I am basically selling this stuff at a loss, but I really need the space to continue my shop build and make room for the new toys. Here is the link to CL because it is too much to repost. Let me know if you’re interested, I’ll make a deal for a fellow LJ. ...
