The grand total to your door will be $1835 shipped for the items you listed, so the actual price difference is more like $541, but getting all three machines sure adds more capability to your shop than just getting a beefier TS. You’ll definitely want to leave some budget for decent blades, and likely things like mobile bases, and other accessories.

I’d probably add 2 mobile bases, the riser kit for bs, and then a new blade for ts and bs.

Probably another $300 on top of that. Plus I have a 5% coupon.

I wish they would update the shop planner to have all these new tools.

I don’t know for certain, but I’m thinking that the coupon may only apply to regular priced items….is there any fine print on it?

I recently used a 5% off catalog coupon when I ordered a dust collector that was on sale, and I got the discount without any problem on the entire order.

so the $1835 noted by knotscott would be $1743.25? and didn’t the OP start out wanting to spend $1000?

Yes the $1000 for a ts was my original goal.

I figured $500 first a bs.

And whatever a jointer cost.

~$1800 for a three tool setup sounds pretty good to me.

If it’s still in the budget, I’d skip the hybrid saw (which isn’t much more than a contractor saw with enclosed cabinet) and get the 1023 or 690, especially since you have the 220 for it now.

The bandsaw and jointer are the same I would choose.

I’d go for the 17” Grizz extreme series BS and then you won’t be looking for riser blocks or needing to upgrade in the future. I’ve got that saw as well as the GO715 tablesaw and have been very pleased with both.

I have found that when I have some money to spend it is more cost effective over the long term to buy one tool that I know I will keep for a long while as opposed to a couple less expensive tools. Every time I have bought the less expensive tool I ended up buying the one I originally wanted later on. Just saying, you can throw away some money going down that road if you are the type of person that isn’t happy until you have what you really wanted to begin with…

Does anyone know if grizzly will have a Black Friday sale? Or are the sale prices they have now are it?

The short answer is that I don’t know, but in general Grizzly’s margins are a little tighter and they don’t tend to offer a lot of sales. You could always call and ask.

I am struggling with a getting theG0452P and the G0656P. I really want the 8” and 220V motor, but I also need to get a planer(Dewalt 735 hopefully) and upgrade my router. If I go with the G0452P then I will have a little more to spend on other things. I keep thinking just get the 8” and the 735 and put off the rest until latter. Any opinions on this?

If you have 220V already $715 for the G0656P looks pretty darn good but $850 for G0490 looks even better. If you are not planning on making any other purchases for awhile than the G0452 + DW735 + router seems like the way to go. Not sure what type of router you were looking at but here is a pretty good deal from CPOhttp://www.cpotools.com/bosch-1617evstb-2-1-4-hp-fixed-base-electronic-router-and-router-table-base/bshn1617evstb,default,pd.html?start=1&cgid=bosch-routers maybe you could get a different planer like the Ridgid instead of the DW735 and still be able to get an 8” jointer and a router.

The 490 does look sweet. The Bosch 1617 is the router I plan on getting. It is on sale at lowes for $198 and I have a $25 off coupon.

Have your say...
