Grizzly H7777 8" Dado Stack

Grizzly H7777 8" Dado Stack

04-26-2009 03:28 PM by Frostyjo | 9 comments »

After the recent reviews where various customer service centers have taken a beating, here’s one that has a happy ending. Last fall I was on the quest for a new dado set to go with my new saw. As a weekend hobbyist with Christmas approaching I couldn’t rationalize spending $200+ on a stack. After looking at several I narrowed it down to the Freud 208 and the Grizzly’s H7777 8” stacks. The deciding points that leaned me towards the Grizzly were price ($50), the chippers are full plates w...

Grizzly G0593 8" Jointer with Spiral Cutter-head

Grizzly G0593 8" Jointer with Spiral Cutter-head

04-26-2009 04:03 AM by Don K. | 34 comments »

This review is going to be a little different. (I am in a good mood)I decided that after years of doing it by hand, that it was time to buy a good jointer. As I have stated before, I am a little obsessive when it comes to buying a high priced tool. If it is something I can lay my hands on and look at, I usually have no problem just pulling the trigger and buying it. But when it comes to ordering a tool I have never seen/touched or used, and then giving the lady/man on the other end of the pho...

Grizzly G1014Z 6x48 belt sander with 9" disc

As I get more and more into the model making side of wood-working I find I need to do some quick sanding and holding the ROS while trying to sand a small piece was getting aggravating. So we stopped at the Grizzly showroom in Muncy, PA. They had both this sander and the smaller 4×36 belt sander. Needless to say the smaller one was out of stock and looked a little small and light for my needs, plus the G1014Z came with a stand. I was forced to wait 5 days before even unpacking it ...

I have to smile with all of the comedians out there….but keep your day jobs….Sorry about no pics, and the skimpy review, but I’ve been really busy getting my boat ready for the upcoming bass tournament season, and the first warm sun makes me run to the river and check lines…..lol I have taken a lot of shop pictures this week, and I just completed a japanese study table made with a tree that I cut down in my backyard last year, so for all of the bandsaw enthusiasts, ...

I have owned many bandsaws, this is the only bandsaw that has ever met my expectations. Just make sure you upgrade to the timberwolf blades, like night and day.

Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe with digital readout

Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe with digital readout

03-01-2009 06:20 AM by trifern | 32 comments »

The Grizzly G0462 Wood Lathe is an enticing machine based on it’s price point, horse power, and features. I would not recommend it. Don’t get me wrong, I have made some fairly nice pieces on it. However, I wish I had never purchased it. In one year I have replaced the belt around 10 times, replaced all bearings, replaced the tool rest, and replaced the tail stock hand wheel twice. The tail stock and head stock do not align, it vibrates, and is noisy.

Grizzly Tablesaw

Grizzly Tablesaw

OK, I finally pulled the trigger on a tablesaw. I have had this one in views for a few months. I did my countless hours of internet reviews as one should for such an item like this. I must admit I did see a few negative reviews, but most of which was the customer service from Grizzly. I have purchased two items previously (Bandsaw and dustcollector) and had minor problems. My bandsaw shipped with no visible damage to the boxes but when I opened the box up someone had slipped the fork fro...

Grizzly Band Saw G0513x2

01-04-2009 03:44 AM by Hawkster | 7 comments »

Just purchased the go513×2, picked it up myself at the Muncy store as I only live an hour away, be prepared as it comes almost fully assembled, bring a lot of rope, the guys in the loading dock very helpful, as they laid it down on it’s spleen for me. Also purchased the shop fox mobile base, and listened to a few friends, and purchased the timberwolf blades.I have owned a lot of band saws, as I do a lot of re-sawing, but I have to admit, this one put a smile on my face. Cutting ...

Grizzly G0513X2 17" Bandsaw 2HP w/Cast Iron Trunnion

Grizzly G0513X2 17" Bandsaw 2HP w/Cast Iron Trunnion

01-02-2009 03:02 AM by Padre | 20 comments »

Just received this on Monday. It came via UPS Freight, and I paid $39 extra for the lift gate service. I highly recommend this service since this saw is a beast! 1. It came in one of flimsiest ‘crates’, if you can call it that, that I have ever seen. This saw weighs in at 325 pounds, more like 425 pounds, and this crate was built for maybe 200 pounds max. 2. The email instructions tell you to inspect the crate for damage before signing. I did this, saw nothing, and sig...
