Grizzly T10097 8-inch Grinder / Sharpener - Not worth the money

Grizzly T10097 8-inch Grinder / Sharpener - Not worth the money

05-21-2012 10:09 PM by DHS | 20 comments »

Executive summary: Cheap tool and not recommended. Details: Tired of grinding plane irons and chisels on my bench grinder while repeatedly quenching them in an old coffee cup nearby, but dismayed at the price of the Tormek system, I paid $90.00 for the Grizzly T10097 8-inch grinder with water bath, tool rest and leather stropping wheel. I got what I paid for. I’ll cut to the chase. The housing is plastic. A grinder with a plastic housing? The motor shaft runs through a bushing t...

Grizzly GO703P  The right Dust Collector for my shop

Grizzly GO703P The right Dust Collector for my shop

05-15-2012 02:50 AM by Dewshan | 12 comments »

After many years of building projects without good dust collection I decided it was time to get serious about controlling the dust in my shop. Besides the obvious health issues it is also not much fun to be covered in dust after a long day of woodworking. I also recently upgraded my table saw to a JET hybrid that has a dust port and I was feeling a little guilty about running the saw without one. My shop is a 2 car garage that I also use to work on cars so I wanted a DC that could be mo...

Grizzly G0490X 8" Jointer with spiral cutter head

Grizzly G0490X 8" Jointer with spiral cutter head

04-17-2012 08:44 PM by hickeymad | 11 comments »

My new machine arrived nicely packaged. No complaints about missing parts or damage. Was actually not too heavy to move into the basement with the help of two friends. Assembly took a little while – the harder part being aligning and tightening the belt. In fact, I think my belt is still too loose, as at start-up and shut-down the machine makes a bit more noise than I’ve read others with the same machine were able to achieve. Fit and finish on the machine is adequate- on the pa...

What do you get if you cross a Grizzly with a Polar Bear? Some sort of Hybrid???

What do you get if you cross a Grizzly with a Polar Bear? Some sort of Hybrid???

Background Info:Prior to owning this saw I made all of my cuts with a circular saw and a straightedge. Once I decided that I was interested enough in woodworking to dedicate half of my garage as a shop, it was time for a table saw. I did a lot of research and had pretty well decided on this saw. When I found out that I would be in Springfield, MO on Black Friday, I knew I had to check out the Grizzly showroom. While the Black Friday deals were pretty lousy, I ventured into the outlet store an...

I bought this saw about 2 weeks ago, since then have used it quite a bit to aid in installing a hardwood floor as well as some other side projects. When researching bandsaws, one thing I noticed was that most of the reviews I’d been reading were 3-4 years old or older. B/c of this I figured I’d add mine here for a more current review. Perspective: I’m a “home hobbyist” meaning I do this stuff for fun in my spare time. Treat this review as such To start, I&...

H7507 Router Extension Table for Table Saw

H7507 Router Extension Table for Table Saw

04-03-2012 11:34 PM by Pie | 10 comments »

With birthday approaching and my wife asking me what i wanted…..I jumped on this for my t-saw. Installing this by yourself is very doable, but is a bit frustrating. Being cast iron, the surface is very flat, even and the two inserts provided are made of metal (not plastic). I had to make my own fence which was easy enough even without the instructions in the manual. I’ve only used the router extension twice and everything worked as advertised. Grizzly continues to make excellent p...

G0548Z - 2HP Canister Dust Collector

G0548Z - 2HP Canister Dust Collector

03-12-2012 02:58 PM by Mainiac Matt | 15 comments »

Background...I’ve been reading up on and conspiring to get DC into a working shop for what seems like ages. And though I’ve always wanted to set up a two stage cyclone system, when it came right down to it, I didn’t have the space or the money. So turning my sights to single stage units, I flagged the G0548Z as my pick. Fast forward to January, when I found that the price had gone up in the 2012 catalog, but that the holiday sale of $375 was still good for a few more days...

Grizzly inflatable drum / flap sander

Grizzly inflatable drum / flap sander

03-10-2012 06:24 AM by redryder | 7 comments »

The only other review I could find on this sander was posted 1300 days ago. I found this machine on Craigslist about six months ago and have used it quite a bit since. It is a beast of power. Very straight forward and simple to operate. I have used and wasted my money on many smaller flap sanders on the drill press with less than great results. This machine will cut your sanding time WAY down. It will take square edges and round them over quickly and accurately. Projects such as cutt...

Grizzly G0715P Table Saw

And so it starts….. Hello Folks! Paul here with my first review post. I plan to update this post after a year of experience with it, so this is my “Initial Thoughts/Feelings” review. :) After a long while (5+ months) of investigating what Table Saw to purchase, I finally decided on the Grizzly G0715P. Now don’t get me wrong I read MANY of the reviews here and at other sites, and most all of them were not so stellar, but some were very good. I believe most of the badness had to ...
