Best Bang for the buck.

Best Bang for the buck.

1091 days ago by Dedvw | 4 comments »

I received this router table with stand for $140 bucks delivered to my door. I was hesistant because there are not a lot of reviews on this table and the low price, but I needed a simple table to get some craft fair projects completed. I ended up being competely impressed when I opened the box. It came to my door in fantastic condition about 3 days after I placed my order. Assembly was very easy and straightforward. I took about an hour and only had 3 different bolts for assembly. 95 perce...

I like it but need to learn its quirks.

I like it but need to learn its quirks.

This review is very long and specific. If you’re in a hurry I suggest reading the cons for both the planer and jointer, the finish quality cheat sheet, and the verdict and coming back to the review later. The first thing I did was put it on the HTC3000 mobile base. The base fits as well as I expected but could use better wheel bearings as this thing is extremely heavy. My 135 lb. self can move it on my own with some hard pushing though. After I got off all the shipping grease I c...

First new Band Saw

First new Band Saw

1104 days ago by MarktheWoodButcher | 12 comments »

The whole Experience. Including my lack of it. I had been struggling with my first band saw an old Craig’s list 1/2 hp 14” Delta on resawing and log sawing for the last 4 years. Since it only cost me $50 how can I complain. But about week ago the switch broke and some of the magic smoke got out of the motor so I decided to move a little further up town and ordered a Grizzly G0513P 17” 2 HP Bandsaw, Polar Bear Series . Four days from phone ordering to the UPS truck pul...

My Grizzy Experience

My Grizzy Experience

1117 days ago by Danc333 | 38 comments »

Hello, This is my first post, but I wanted to talk about my experience so far. After much research I decided to buy a Grizzly 715 hybrid table saw. It arrived well packed and in excellent condition. I took my time setting it up and installing my TS-LS positioner with router table. It took me a couple weeks to finish, working a couple hours at night. I have to say over all I am very impressed with the saw. I like the build quality and the fit and finish are very good. The cast iron table is le...

Grizzly G0690 Sawed in Alabama

Grizzly G0690 Sawed in Alabama

1127 days ago by woodmaker | 22 comments »

I finally have 220 in the shop now and cut my first piece of wood with this saw.Only a 2×6 but it went through the saw like warm butter. I was very pleased.Vibration is near zero and the saw is very quite; I was surprised as to just how quiet. This is my 3rd table saw all others were big box bought portable contractor type. I’m not going to repeat all the specs again, most folks here already know about this saw. As far as the cosmolene there was very little actually; I was...

Great Drill Press, meh Milling Machine

Great Drill Press, meh Milling Machine

1143 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

1155 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

1157 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?

1174 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...
