Grizzly 6"x80" Edge Sander, It's worth every cent

Grizzly 6"x80" Edge Sander, It's worth every cent

09-11-2018 08:05 AM by WoodenDreams | 5 comments »

This Edge Sander is a bench top model. I choice this instead of Floor Model so it would have wood storage under it, with my limited space. This sander is mounted on a 24” high bench. To help with dust collection I taped some construction paper to the inlet area. This extended the dust collection area. If I need more of the belt available I untape it and retape It back up. I keep in stock extra belts (2 each of 80, 120, 180 & 220 grit). The belts only takes less than a minute to chan...

Great for a hobbist

Great for a hobbist

I bought the Grizzly G0771Z in April 2017. I did send Grizzly a poor review after the purchase, But, after the first 3 month of usage, I sent Grizzly a revised, but good review….. I was going to buy the Grizzly G0833P, but the salesman over the phone told me to buy the G0771Z. Reason was the shipping crate size, had to fit thru a certain boor. When I received it I took everything out of crate & dolleyed it in. The G08339P would had fit through. The rail attaching to the back of the ...

Planer upgrade

Planer upgrade

08-31-2018 12:38 PM by Jarrhead | 6 comments »

So, I upgraded the planer in the shop. Went from the old tried and true Jet JPM-13 Planer Moulder, to a Grizzly G0453W. I wanted a little larger capacity, and a higher horsepower motor. Found the planer, used, on Craigslist for $1000. It needed a little lovin’, but overall was in pretty good shape. Some surface rust, and a worn out set of blades. The G0453W is kind of a Grizzly anomaly. They apparently only manufactured it for a year or two, and it is now discontinued. I can’t find an...

Grizzly G0457 Review

Grizzly G0457 Review

07-24-2018 01:58 AM by Wstein | 2 comments »

I recently purchased the Grizzly G0457 and let me say I have been impressed with so far. I decide a few months ago I needed a bandsaw to resaw some 6/4 and 8/4 wood I had in my shop for boxes for my nieces. I looked at several different ones, my wife even got me a small benchtop bandsaw. For the price and specs, the Grizzly G0457 stood out to me. I know for the money I spent I could have gotten a 17” model instead for a little bit more. But the G0457 had the 2hp motor, 220volt con...

Happy, after some difficulties

Happy, after some difficulties

05-01-2018 01:42 PM by Pixxture | 4 comments »

Had some difficulty obtaining the saw from UPS freight, Grizzly’s chosen freight provider, at least in my area. UPS could not deliver because:Day 1: I could not be home from 7:30 to 6:00 waiting for delivery, I had to be out for 3 hours that day.Day 2. It was snowingDay 3. It might snowDay 4. Tailgate brokenDay 5. Turbos on truck brokenFinally the saw was delivered. As difficult as UPS freight is to deal with their drivers are TERRIFIC. I gave the driver a hefty tip for rolling it into the...

Finally went and done it

Finally went and done it

04-30-2018 11:31 PM by skiler | 9 comments »

I finally went and done it. My R4512 finally stopped making good cuts so I got a Grizzly. I am SOOOOOOO impressed with this saw. Came with out a scratch on it. Easy to set up (with help). It was aligned right out of the box. The hardest part was getting it to my shop. It weighs 300 lbs in the box. Got an appliance dolly and a great big friend to help me move it. Made several cuts with it today. They were perfect. If you are thinking about an up grade, this is a really good deal.

Grizzly G0690 Tablesaw Review

Grizzly G0690 Tablesaw Review

09-16-2017 06:43 AM by unclearthur | 11 comments »

Pros:- Grizzly customer service is unfailingly polite- I learned a lot about tablesaws. Nothing like taking one apart to learn how they operate.- I’ve got a lot of practice using my bandsaw- adrenalin rush when you realize you’ve switched off the saw but the blade isn’t stopping! Cons:- brand new Grizzly G0690 tablesaw was unsafe to use- 2 months of wasted time - Having to return the 500 lb saw at my own time and expense to Grizzly Much of this saga is told in real...

my experience with Grizzly g0555Lx

my experience with Grizzly g0555Lx

09-10-2017 05:22 PM by paulsss | 10 comments »

I purchased the Griazzly and was excited when it arrived and was set-up per instructions. I wanted this model because it ranged 1/8” to 3/4” blades. I do alot of smaller pieces, so having the 1/8” was a large part of making final decision. That’s when problems started piling up. I could not get the 1/8” blade to track, even after the tech support told me to take sandpaper to a perfectly good tire.The manual clearly says all calibrations are done at the shop...

Getting on the G0771z Bandwagon

Getting on the G0771z Bandwagon

08-23-2017 11:35 PM by NeophyteGrant | 10 comments »

I lurked for months on Lumberjocks before making this purchase. Always the researcher, I had my reservations about some of the QC and manufacture complaints. I feel comfortable saying—as seems the consensus—the G0771z is a good bargain. I don’t think you’ll find a better saw for the money, and with the Z model, released at some point last year, you get the T-style B-meyer fence (the fence face does have 3 total tracks—2 on the face and one on the top). That was o...

Grizzly Table Saw, best birthday present ever

Grizzly Table Saw, best birthday present ever

08-22-2017 08:59 PM by Zoomie | 16 comments »

Turning 60 this year and the little lady read my wish list and I got the cabinet saw I’ve wanted for the past 30 years. Truly a compromise on some level but for me the value is extraordinary given the Grizzly price and the small differences that I as a hobby woodworker will never miss. I actually went to Springfield MO to see it in person and am glad I did. The saw was outstanding but the mobile base was awkward and not very mobile . . . but I needed it to be. Grizzly shipping and U...
