And so it starts…..
Hello Folks! Paul here with my first review post. I plan to update this post after a year of experience with it, so this is my “Initial Thoughts/Feelings” review. :)
After a long while (5+ months) of investigating what Table Saw to purchase, I finally decided on the Grizzly G0715P.
Now don’t get me wrong I read MANY of the reviews here and at other sites, and most all of them were not so stellar, but some were very good. I believe most of the badness had to do with run out issues when the blade was raised to its topmost position. However, when people had those issues, Grizzlies Customer Service took care of everything and people looked to be not left with a “Sour taste in the mouth”. I decided to give it a go,because what could I loose other than time :)
Really easy and delivery was a snap. The driver even helped me get it into my garage! Score!
Assembly: The manual was awesome for a new woodworker like myself. Surprisingly I almost felt like it was too easy. The wings went on great and were dead flat with the rest of the table.. I cant even get 2 pieces of notebook paper under the straightedge I was using. The fence rails and fence went on smooth as well. There was only a bit of adjustment needed to bring the fence flat to the top and square to the miter slot. Then I got to the blade and the miter slot. So you can guess I was a little scared about what my results were going to be. I was not however expecting the results I got.
Here are the pics, and am I reading this right?? Is that a .001” difference from the front to the back of the blade? I was REALLY not expecting it to be that close, especially out of the box! I am pretty sure this is “Within tolerances” hehe. (please correct me if I am wrong here lol)
Front of the saw from a mark on the blade
Back of the saw from same mark
I am happy so far! Everything is smooth sailing :)
