Grizzly T10128 15-in. Spiral Cutterhead on ShopFox 1723 Planer

Grizzly T10128 15-in. Spiral Cutterhead on ShopFox 1723 Planer

05-18-2013 04:06 PM by wbrisett | 5 comments »

It was time to purchase new blades for ShopFox 1723 15-in. planer. I started thinking about the price of sharping the blades and the price of a spare set of blades and then wanted to see what sort of price I could get on a spiral cutterhead. I’ll be honest with you, I’ve wanted one for a while now. I loved the idea that you didn’t have to replace the entire blade, only the cutters that needed it, and you didn’t have to do that until you had turned each three times, ...

Grizzly 16” G0660X Jointer / Planer Combo

Grizzly 16” G0660X Jointer / Planer Combo

I had difficulty assessing the relative performance of this machine since the machines I have the most experience with are not in the same class (bench-top versus floor machines). The only J/P that I have any hands on experience with has been the Jet JJP-12 and that was limited to a hand on dealer demonstration. The only full size machines I’ve used were those I used nearly 40 years ago in high school and a friend’s old Delta cast iron monsters. Thoughts regarding how this machine compares to...

Grizzly is unbeatable for the money.

Grizzly is unbeatable for the money.

Without a dial indicator and thousandths of an inch feeler gauge there is not a perceptible inaccuracy with this saw. Out of the box it is as flat and square as can be seen without a micrometer. It cuts flat the fence is square the miter gauge sucks but is good at 90 and 45. Vibration is null everywhere. I can cut 3/4 inch birch at midnight with an ultra thin kerf blade and the sound of the saw at my curb is a whisper. Also, it looks like a beast because it is, 400+Lbs of metal and torque. ...

Grizzly G0656P 8" Jointer - Great "User" Machine with Minor Flaws

Grizzly G0656P 8" Jointer - Great "User" Machine with Minor Flaws

As the title of this post suggests, this is a review of Grizzly’s G0656P 3HP 220V 8” Jointer. Some of you may have seen my initial post claiming my joy over purchasing this jointer and a G0703P DC system and the subsequent shipping issues UPS had delivering it. I won’t rehash any the shipping issues but if you are interested in reading about it, check out the comments within my original post by clicking here Packaging————————...

Grizzly G0690 even with problems still good value

Grizzly G0690 even with problems still good value

04-05-2013 04:49 AM by pjones46 | 46 comments »

Based on many of the reviews I have read, the Grizzly G0690 Cabinet saw was the best bang for the buck. As there have been many reviews given I will only add a few comments to those that I have read. The saw arrived without a ding, dent or missing part and went together well. I was very disappointed with wiring as it appeared to be only 14 gauge wire with a 220 plug configuration I had never seen. I had my electrician rewire it completely with 12 gauge wire and use a more conventional tw...

My Griz G0715P

My Griz G0715P

Delivery: Took 5 days. I paid Grizzly the extra $34 for lift gate service which gets your saw off the back of the truck and onto the ground. At this point they are done. Grizzly said that I would have to call the freight company (UPS) to get a quote to get it inside the garage. UPS quoted me $199 to wheel it in, but encouraged me to chat with the driver first. In other words she was trying to tell me that the driver would probably just do it for me, and he did. Customer service was ve...

Grizzly 1023RLW 10" 3 HP 220V Table Saw

Grizzly 1023RLW 10" 3 HP 220V Table Saw

02-26-2013 04:10 AM by Scomel Basses | 23 comments »

I received this saw about a week ago. I must say, whoever built this saw, must have just come back from a long and relaxing vacation. It was built perfectly. The powder coat was spot on, no overspray to be found. The build date shows to be late January 2013 so it’s fresh off the boat. That may be why there was very little cosmoline to clean up. The packaging was very good and shipping went without a hitch and no damage to either of the boxes. Assembly went without difficulty; the instructi...

Grizzly 5, shipping 1

Grizzly 5, shipping 1

I bought a GO490X 8” jointer from Grizzly about 4 months ago. Been wanting to do a review, so here’s my scorecard on the whole experience (10 being the best, 1 the worst) with some comments for each: Ordering: 9 Over the phone, very easy. Shipping: 1 I picked up at the UPS Freight terminal. It was dropped in shipping. Sheared and bent cast pieces and bolts, parts falling out. See the photos. Bad news, it must have gotten away from somebody, huh? Glad I wasn’t around. Customer s...

Almost Two Years with My Grizzly

Almost Two Years with My Grizzly

02-23-2013 10:29 AM by WillyParker | 7 comments »

I feel fortunate to have this fine machine. After trading up from an ancient contractors saw which although carefully calibrated and adjusted, had limited power and stability. While the new Grizzly is certainly not perfect, in every area significant area, this machine is excellent. It capably performs the most precise woodworking tasks. The machine arrived from the factory with the arbor exactly parallel with the miter slots. As many of you know this is extremely important for doing precis...

8 x 72 3HP Jointer from Santa

8 x 72 3HP Jointer from Santa

02-06-2013 01:30 AM by Ken90712 | 25 comments »

Santa ( aka Blondie ) was good to me again this year. I have been using a Delta 6 inch Table Top Jointer for yrs. As most of you know that can be a challenge when doing 8 foot boards. After a lot of research we decided on this one with the normal cutter head. Cpl buddies say the Helix can leave lines in the wood. Think this might be myth truthfully, however I can always up grade later if I feel I need to. I have been using the blade method for ever and it has worked fine for me. I thought ...
