Great Drill Press, meh Milling Machine

Great Drill Press, meh Milling Machine

1014 days ago by RoundestRock | 10 comments »

NOTE: The G1006 mill and the G1007 mill are EXACTLY THE SAME MILL. The G1007 has the addition of an X axis power feed. So this review applies for both. First off I generally like this machine. The few problems I’ve found can be worked around or are just fit/finish pet peeves. Yes it’s intended as a mettle working machine. But I bought it specifically for precision cutting wooden mechanical parts. So mine is a woodworking machine ;). If you’re upgrading from a drill pre...

Grizzly 8" jointer -- first impressions

Grizzly 8" jointer -- first impressions

1026 days ago by glassyeyes | 12 comments »

I purchased the Grizzly G0656 helical head 8” jointer on June 11, and received it a few days ago. I have assembled it and tested it, and feel it is a good—though not perfect—tool. My rating also takes into account that this is very reasonably priced for an 8” helical head jointer; I would expect a little better fit and finish, with fewer issues, on a higher-priced machine. PICTURES: Plenty of pictures are available online: I included these to show a simple way to...

New Planner

New Planner

1028 days ago by lrob | 10 comments »

I just got a new Grizzley GO453PX planner with spiral cuter head. It arrived by Freight at the dock where I work. Loaded it on my Pick-Up after work. It weights in at 700LBs. Getting it in the shop was a little tricky as the loader I used had a bucket wider than by 6’ double doors I have going into the shop. We finaly got it in and it took about 2 hours to get it all assembled and another 2 hours cleaning of all the protective grease off machine [Alcocol and elbow grease worked good]...

What's a polar bear doing in the desert?

What's a polar bear doing in the desert?

1045 days ago by lots2learn | 3 comments »

After reading some positive reviews about this tablesaw I finally decided to pull the trigger only to find some unfavorable reviews after. Hopefully my review helps others make a decision either way. My previous tablesaw is an old Craftsman built in 1971. It’s like an old hybrid saw and well built but lacked dust collection and a splitter or riving knife. Safety is a big concern and this is a positive step until I can purchase a Sawstop cabinet saw.The package arrived in good shape...

Grizzly G0715P newbies point of view.

Grizzly G0715P newbies point of view.

1053 days ago by gillyd | 39 comments »

First off, I’d like to say a few things to give you a bit of context around my review. This is the first table saw I have ever owned, so I have nothing to compare it to. I have been using it now for 4 months, I meant to write a review right away, but I am glad that I waited as my feelings for the saw have changed a bit. Now on to the review. Price: $859 Assembly Time: 5 hours. —————————————- ...

G0458 Drum Sander An Exceptional Machine

G0458 Drum Sander An Exceptional Machine

1060 days ago by Bob Kollman | 16 comments »

I bought this drum sander about a month ago. In that time I have sanded about 200 board feet of wood.This is the first and only drum sander I have ever used, so some of you more experienced users may beable to help me. The jet 16-32 and 22-44 seem to be the most popular drum sanders. I choose the Grizzly because of it’s differences. 1) It is heavier, which equals rigidity.2) It gave me 4” more of sanding surface compared to the 16-32.3) The drum is stationary. The Jet ...

Kudos to Grizzly for an easy Saw to set up

Kudos to Grizzly for an easy Saw to set up

This review is just for unloading and assembling the Grizzly G0690 10” 3hp cabinet saw. and I will say that most of you will not need the manual at all as far as assembly is concerned. I was very impressed with the construction and workmanship of this saw and the price wasn’t bad either. After getting the saw on the ground and in the shop, we unpacked and checked for any damages. The way they pack these things, is almost impossible to receive damage in normal handling. Everything ...

Grizzly G0690 vs. G0715P

Grizzly G0690 vs. G0715P

1066 days ago by Alpiner | 16 comments »

If you had read my previous review of Grizzly’s G0715P hybrid saw that I received week before last, you know that I had a serious unsafe issue with it, and I received permission from Grizzly to return it. It’s been reboxed, and will be picked up by UPS freight Tuesday. I was leery of getting the same saw again, so I went ahead and ordered a new G0690 cabinet saw, which is what I was considering ordering in the first place. I just wasn’t sure if the $500 price difference w...

What did I get myself into?

What did I get myself into?

1074 days ago by Alpiner | 72 comments »

I recently sold my 15-year old Jet contractors saw on Craigslist with the intention of upgrading to Grizzly’s new hybrid saw. I was tired of the extraneous sawdust the Jet produced even though I had the saw connected to a 2 HP Grizzly dust collector. Other than that, the Jet came perfectly set up, and I never had to make any adjustments through its 15 years of dedicated service. I received the new Grizzly G0715P this past Tuesday, and had a neighbor assist me in locating it to my b...

Grizzly G0529 Oscillating Spindle & Disk Sander

Grizzly G0529 Oscillating Spindle & Disk Sander

1074 days ago by CreekWoodworker | 9 comments »

I purchased this tool about nine months ago and it has become one of my most used tools. This tool is heavy (180 lbs) and will require two people to set it up. The setup itself is fairly easy, the top portion of the sander comes assembled with the two tables attached. However, this is what makes it heavy and difficult to work with. The box the sander was delivered in was too large to fit through my basement door. My son I removed the top portion which is probably 90% of the weight, but it...
