Grizzly 4 1/2" Mallet

Grizzly 4 1/2" Mallet

06-16-2012 10:45 PM by Stephenw | 2 comments »

I considered building a mallet, but with so many other projects in the queue, I decided to buy the 4 1/2” mallet from grizzly.com. The handle finish is a little rough. There is also dirt and a brown substance all over the mallet. The pictures are of the new, unused mallet. Many mallet heads are made from several parts laminated together. This mallet head is a solid piece with a tapered hole bored through for the handle. The result is a somewhat sloppy fit. At $12.95, it wasn’...

Just what I wanted

Just what I wanted

I purchased this 5/25/12 and picked it up from the UPS freight terminal on 6/1/12. I paid the extra thirty something dollars for liftgate delivery to my home, but UPS contacted me and said they wouldn’t be able to deliver it from their terminal to my house for almost an additional week and I didn’t want to wait. I had no trouble getting it home using my dad’s F150. The UPS guys put it on a pallet and loaded it for me with their forklift. It took three 200+ pound men to u...

I use this same machine

I use this same machine

This is a great machine. I do not use the flap part. Have read many comments about how difficult it is, and some even say dangerous. So, I use the small bladder on one side, with 80 grit and the large one with 150 grit. I mainly use it to clean up rounded over (with router) corners to build outdoor furniture. I use a handheld bicycle pump and it is probably less than 10 psi because I think I push too hard and it would be too aggressive at a higher psi. When I was first looking for one, ...

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 | 22 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???

04-11-2012 09:03 PM by Rex B | 19 comments »

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...

Grizzly G0555

Grizzly G0555

04-09-2012 01:31 PM by Newman | 20 comments »

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...
