Grizzly G0452Z 6” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead

Grizzly G0452Z 6” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead

10 days ago by JerryinCreek | 10 comments »

This is a summary of my experience in purchasing, assembling and using this machine. I began by attempting to place my order on-line, but the choice of lift gate service was not available on the web site. I then called Grizzly and the gentleman who assisted me was going to show me where I missed it. However, I apparently did not miss it, it was not on the web site for this product. The order taker was quite courteous and completed my purchase. I ordered this unit on a Wednesday and was ...

Grizzly G0582 24: Wide Belt Sander

Grizzly G0582 24: Wide Belt Sander

28 days ago by BoardSMITH | 7 comments »

After two months of hard use I feel somewhat qualified to write a decent review. So here goes. Crating and packing – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Delivery – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Instruction manual – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Fit and finish, Blah, blah, blah, etc… Now that all the fluff is out of the way. I purchased a Grizzly wide belt sander because I was unable to find another on the market of that size. My budget would handle a 24̶...

Never again will I trust Grizzly for "Precision" equipment

Never again will I trust Grizzly for "Precision" equipment

I just had the biggest hassle of my life when I got the grizzly 8 inch spiral head dovetail jointer. It took me about three months before I actually got a chance to unpackaged my purchase and then it took me another three days to get all the Schmutz cleaned off of it from the being sent from overseas. I thought to myself boy this is going to be awesome 8 inch helical cutterhead for less than half of the price of a powermatic. Once I finally got the machine set up I put a straight edge on i...

First impressions of the Anniversary Edition G0555 14" Band Saw

First impressions of the Anniversary Edition G0555 14" Band Saw

58 days ago by dansnow | 16 comments »

After nursing along my Dads old Craftsman 12” band saw, I was really looking forward to getting my new saw. After much research and pricing I had settled on the G0555LANV 14” for a number of reasons. It had a 1 HP motor where several others in the price range were 3/4HP. It had a cast iron frame and table instead of cast aluminum and stamped steel. The wheels were cast iron instead of cast aluminum and it had two speeds. But one of it’s biggest selling features to me was the...

Something this heavy should work!

Something this heavy should work!

67 days ago by shu | 22 comments »

This is a poorly designed sander.You would think that if a tool weighed as much as a submarine, it would be steady worker, but the Grizzly GO458 takes a break about every 30 minutes and decides to adjust itself where it wants to be.Seriously, it has many design problems.The feed belt will only stay in adjustment while you are watching it. It must be a quantum physics thing. After about a half hour of sanding, when your hands and mind are fixed on keeping it from sniping your work, because the...

GO513X2F just arrived

91 days ago by bowedcurly | 20 comments »

Im currently in the process of assembling my 513 I had a Rikon 10-345 but sold it. From my observations so far the Grizzly has bigger bearings say by 2x better welds more even beads where as the Rikon has runny balled up welds smoother height adjustment blade disengage much smoother Rikon was kinda hard to engage bigger better looking motor better lookin cast iron top also has a magnetic switch, Rikon does not have this I learned that the hard way after plugging in the sa...

Good Value for a Downdraft Sanding table

Good Value for a Downdraft Sanding table

120 days ago by tme4tls | 3 comments »

Last year I had a real problem breathing when I had to do prolonged periods of sanding during the winter months with the shop closed up tight to retain heat. I first though about getting a Trend Airshield but the weight sitting on top of my head during use wasn’t very comfortable so I started thinking seriously about a downdraft table. I wanted the Denray brand but the prices were more than I could afford and looked at the Grizzly models. Grizzlys pricing was more affordable and th...

A beautiful piece of machinery

A beautiful piece of machinery

127 days ago by adrianpglover | 8 comments »

I’m new to posting on this site. When I first got into woodworking, about 2-3 years ago, a coworker loaned me a Shopsmith Mark V from the 1970s. It worked ok for what I was doing, but the tiny table, difficulty in doing bevel cuts, and the fact that the table would lean into the blade if enough weight was put on it led me to the decision to get a different saw for myself. Don’t get me wrong, the Shopsmith is a good product for what it is. It’s a great multi-use product. ...

for $32, can not go wrong

for $32, can not go wrong

137 days ago by Holbs | 8 comments »

I was in need to make 6” and 6 1/4” circles for my dust collection HVAC blast gates and support holders. My Microfence circular router jig CAN go as low as 6”, but I had to install a Bosch router adapter which changes the minimum diameter to 7”. I’ve reviewed other circle cutters and decided on the Grizzly because it looks more “stout” and there are zero reviews I could find so … a crap shoot :) I could of went with a hole saw but that is a f...

UPDATE 1 After one week of use the EXACT same problem I was having with the Ridgid appeared. I’m waiting on Grizzly to see how they handle this situation. The blade misalignment when lowering and raising the blade is worse than it was on the RIDGID. It’s so strange that it takes a few days worth of use for this to show up. The exact same problem with two completely different companies. I’m cursed. I shot a video this time of the problem. You can see it here:https://www.youtu...
