A very affordable, functional base with below average fit and finish

A very affordable, functional base with below average fit and finish

07-17-2017 05:04 PM by Eric Moon | 3 comments »

I recently acquired my first cabinet saw – a ~10 year old 3hp industrial SawStop. Its a heavy beast, somewhere north of 500lbs. I need to be able to move it around occasionally, so I’ve been on the hunt for a mobile base for it. I looked at the SawStop mobile base and it looked amazing, but $300+ was out of my budget, which was near empty after buying the saw. So I’d been on the lookout for a less costly mobile base. Last week, I got the weekly email from Grizzly.co...

Budget spiral cutterhead upgrade for 6" jointer

Budget spiral cutterhead upgrade for 6" jointer

06-20-2017 03:44 AM by Mike_D_S | 8 comments »

Short story: Fits Delta 37-190, easy to install. Only put about 20 bf across it so far, but cut quality is very good. I’m giving it five stars due to the cut quality, but the instructions were marginal but usable. Long Story:I’ve been wanting to upgrade my jointer to a spiral head for a while, but couldn’t bring myself to drop the nearly $400 on my older Delta 37-190. The Delta is a quality machine and with a few minor tweaks around adding a port for dust collection, I...

False Advertising

False Advertising

04-19-2017 01:13 PM by HGAlfrerd | 30 comments »

This incident is about “False advertising” and “using 1 HP inverter on a 1 ½ HP Motor” on the Grizzly G0632 wood lathe”.09-30-14 I ordered a wood lathe (G0632) including various wood working accessories.Once the lathe arrived and I had it assembled, I noticed that the inverter would cut-out frequently when operating the lathe. I called Grizzly and they shipped a replacement inverter. There was an issue with the first shipment of the inverter, as someone had picked the wrong item and instead o...

Man what a store! Kid in the candy store is the only apt description. Super friendly help and just a wonderful experience. Worth a special trip if you are looking for tools and even reasonably close. I will be going back too.

Recently got this sander from Grizzly, I realize that it is a sander that has various brand names attached to it so shop around and get your best deal. Prior to this I was using my drill press with different sized drums, there is no comparison between the two. Like anything you can spend as much or as little as you wish. This model more than meets my needs. I built a stand on wheels to move it around on and put a large drawer to hold all my sanding drums etc. etc. The sander came with 80 Grit...

First of all, I love this machine. It’s been great, had it since Christmas. But it didn’t start off that way. I’ve had a few problems right from the start. As you can see from the first picture it’s a beautiful saw, just doesn’t have the Fence installed. Thats because it was shipped with the fence for a G0771. Worked with Grizzly support and let them know of the shipping mishap and they took care of it without a problem. I also found a few other problems; ...

Grizzly T27417 Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Part 2

Grizzly T27417 Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Part 2

03-21-2017 11:57 AM by EEngineer | 9 comments »

Since the two are so similar, it is inevitable that there will be comparisons between the Ridgid EB4424 and the Grizzly T27417. But the two products are quite different. Some of the most obvious differences were covered in the first part of this review. The table on the Grizzly unit is smaller and the whole package has a much smaller footprint (16 1/2” X 18 1/2” as opposed to the Ridgid’s 19 1/4” X 23 1/2”). Because of this, I think the Ridgid on-board storage is better organized – there ...

I have wanted a spindle sander in my shop for some time now. For the last year or two, I had my eye on the Ridgid EB4424 belt/spindle sander but reviews just haven’t been kind to this product. Yes, there are many magazine reviews praising this product and positive reviews by satisfied users but there are also lots and lots of sad tales (including right here on LJ here and here ) that seemed to point to severe quality control issues. In addition, like many other companies, it seems that Ri...

There IS a learning curve, and it does have some limitations that can be overcome

03-17-2017 01:52 PM by Tennessee | 15 comments »

This is a copy/paste of the review I wrote on this system on Amazon with a very few changes/updates. (Kind of an Amazon review junkie) I finally popped for a wet stone water system, after doing the high speed grinding thing with both 8” grinders and a large Harbor Freight unit, then went to the variable speed grinder with the Wolverine jig system for my lathe tools. Good, but not scary sharp and they still dulled fast on hard wood. I needed something that would put a world-class edge...
