Grizzly GO555LX 14" Deluxe Bandsaw, 1hp TEFC Motor

Absolutely fantastic piece of machinery. I originally purchased a 14” Porter Cable BS from Lowe’s, brought it back the next day, not that it was junk, just limited to 1/2” blades vs 3/4 specialty blades with the Grizzly. This model was their upgrade from the previous G0555 and it was on sale during Christmas. PROS – This BS runs so smooth and quiet, in fact you need to be sure it’s OFF, my RIDGID shop vacuum I hook up to it is louder than this machine. ...

My new G0661 Table Saw

My new G0661 Table Saw

01-28-2013 01:59 AM by kdc68 | 19 comments »

I have my new Grizzly set up and overall I’ve been pleased with its features and performance. I started out a bit bad because in the box were four right legs instead of two lefts, and two rights. Grizzly sent out the left legs right away, so no big deal. The first project using the saw was the extension table to the right of the blade. Not a lot of cutting, but gave me a feel for it’s operation. My old table saw was a Craftsman 10” that I bought new 20 years ago. I sol...

New Dust Collection System  Grizzly 548, East Caroga Cyclone

New Dust Collection System Grizzly 548, East Caroga Cyclone

01-26-2013 05:44 PM by Bob A in NJ | 17 comments »

Here’s my new DC system and includes a Grizzly G0548Z, East Carago Cyclone, Penn State Remote and Blastco Pipes, gates and elbows. System works well, took a few weekends to get it all together. Work flow: Had to install new 220 breaker in the main panel.Needed new wiring and 220 remote contol from Penn State Industries. The remote works very well, no issues. I tape magnets to the remote and attach it to the cyclone or lathe most of the time. The 548 DC itself is very nice...

I just purchased one of these units last week. I haven’t mounted it to the ceiling yet, but I have running at table height for now just to check it out. I had been planning to build my own filter like this, but for the price it was hard to pass up. Building a similar unit from scratch would probably cost close to the same plus the time to round up the components and assemble it. I was pleased with how quiet the unit was for the amount of air it was moving. I have only used it duri...

‘I should preface this review by disclaiming that I purchased this machine used. The previous owner purchased it from Grizzly 4-5 years ago and claimed to have used it seldomly. However, the 7944 currently listed on Grizzly’s website appears to be identical, with the same specifications. Just sayin ‘ So I’ve had this machine for several weeks now, and have used it with hole saws, forsteners, and HSS metal bits. Here are my thoughts:This drill press is pretty generic...

Dust Collector Grizzly 0548ZP

Well another year has come and gone and I must have been a real good boy this year. Look what Santa brought me! It arrived in 2 boxes early November and sat in my garage until I was allowed to open it on Christmas Day. What a torture and a display in self control that was. I was drooling like a rabid dog, wanting to tear into it and hook it up etc. but my wife said I had to wait till Santa arrived. I still can’ figure that one out. Why would Santa drop off my present in early November j...

G1023RLW after a year and a few projects...

G1023RLW after a year and a few projects...

12-23-2012 12:03 PM by harvey4804 | 8 comments »

I purchased this G1023RLW back in October 2010. After a few back-orders I finally received the saw December 2010. Now, I purchased this saw because I was in the process of purchasing a house and we were only weeks away from closing and I figured that by the time the saw ships, I’d be moved in… WELLLL, long story short and nearly a year later and almost 10 offers on 10 other homes later we ended up closing August 2011 on the ONLY “traditional sale” in my area. Since th...

Grizzly G0738 dust removal unit (for small shops)

Grizzly G0738 dust removal unit (for small shops)

10-14-2012 05:42 PM by Tennessee | 16 comments »

I had been looking into air dust collection for a while now. My shop is too small for a stand-alone unit, and my ceilings are only about 7’, so short of cutting a hole in the wall for some kind of exhaust, even when the big door is open it can get dusty in the work area, which is deep into the shop. And I was not enthused with the less expensive 5 micron bag units, too much stuff still floating around.When I saw these, I added up my time and cost to buy the filters, build the box, buy ...

Grizzly G1023RL Review/Opinion

Grizzly G1023RL Review/Opinion

09-29-2012 08:03 PM by BoardSMITH | 11 comments »

I purchased this cabinet saw in February and over the months I have come to some opinions about the saw in general. I thought a review might be in order. Overall, I was quite pleased with the packaging and the instruction manual. Once out of the shipping container, I was able to easily find the parts and assemble them. I remember I had the saw up and running in less than 2 hours. I use the saw as a dedicated rip saw only and it performs well cutting 8/4 maple, mahogany cherry and walnut...

Grizzly G0675 10" Jointer/Planer Combo Review

09-25-2012 05:08 PM by earik | 13 comments »

Hi Everyone, I’ve spent a lot of time reading posts on this site and making use of the many reviews here, and wanted to post my experience with the new Grizzly 10” jointer/planer combo since there are still not a lot of reviews on these yet. I bought this piece of equipment a couple months back without having owned any previous Grizzly tools, and based a lot of my decision on the tons of positive reviews I’ve heard about Grizzly, especially in the customer service departm...
