Very good DC at very affordable price

Very good DC at very affordable price

134 days ago by Jesse | 5 comments »

I have been running this dust collector for several months now and have had no issues. The suction is really good, I can have several ports open at one time with no problems. At under $700 it is the same price as the Powermatic 1.75HP machine but with more power and more capacity, I know because I own both machines. The Grizzly is 3HP and has a 7 inch inlet. I don’t like the 7 inch because it is tough to find all the piping for that size but after searching the home improvement stor...

Grizzly Jointer/Planer Combo w/ Spiral Cutterhead

Grizzly Jointer/Planer Combo w/ Spiral Cutterhead

162 days ago by Matthew | 15 comments »

I recently purchased this machine, as a replacement for my Jet 8 inch jointer planer combo machine. Here’s my thoughts so far. Background:As stated above, I bought this machine as an upgrade to my 8 in Jet combo machine. This came as a necessity when I began working on building a traditional style workbench, and found the long and heavy slabs to be way too big for the small machine to handle, specifically for the planer function of the machine.I went back and forth on whether to get ...

Grizzly Wet Grinder

Grizzly Wet Grinder

162 days ago by Matthew | 3 comments »

Wanted to do a quick review of the grizzly 10 inch wet grinder. I got the anniversary edition about a month ago, and have been very pleased with the results. Pros:Grinds, hones, and polishes wellVery happy with the polishing leather wheelVery good and repeatable results Cons:Jig is hard to square up, but is still useable Cannot flatten or polish blade backs unlike the tormek.Angle jig can be confusing at firstCould be better at catching water off wheel sides Overall, I would recommen...

Grizzly G1033X Workhorse

Grizzly G1033X Workhorse

163 days ago by BoardSMITH | 7 comments »

Since my wife says I am very hard to buy a Christmas present for, I normally act excited and appreciative when I open a Christmas gift, even if it is something I already have or is the wrong size or color. SO I normally buy my own so I get what I can really use. I had a G0453Z that I purchased three years ago. It worked well and with the increased volume here in the shop I decided it was time to upgrade to a larger planer with added features and more power. (Sounds like Tim Allen doesn&...

Product Rating, sort of, Merchant Rating for sure

Product Rating, sort of, Merchant Rating for sure

170 days ago by kajunkraft | 10 comments »

I recently purchased the Grizzly G0452Z jointer. It has the spiral cutterhead. Assembly was pretty easy, took about an hour. Directions were pretty good. Condition of all parts, finish, etc. was fine. The machine does an awesome job of flattening, as it is supposed to, and is very quiet (relative to the bladed versions). So, in my opinion this is a great machine. What I really want to comment on, however, is Grizzly’s customer service. This machine came in two boxes. Box 1 ...

After resolving initial issues, this is a great saw!

After resolving initial issues, this is a great saw!

187 days ago by Paul D | 10 comments »

Initial Lemon Things did not start out so happily for me and the G0715P. It arrived off the UPS truck looking like it had probably been tipped over once or twice, but given that it was pretty well packaged I didn’t reject the shipment. I was able to get it down into my basement with a hand truck and unpacked it – no noticeable damage. I went through the entire setup process and everything seemed to be going well, until I tried to install the blade. There is a arbor lock but...

Satisfied Customer - Recommended Machine (but watch for missing components)

Satisfied Customer - Recommended Machine (but watch for missing components)

190 days ago by lumbermeister | 2 comments »

NOTE: First posted this review a few weeks ago; now updated with my experience adjusting tables for Coplanarity, and updating my overall take on the machine. Duration of ownership at time of this review – 3 months. Reason for purchasing this unit – Parallelogram design for longer beds than dovetail of same width; 6” wide and 55” long would fit in my relatively small shop and, additionally, be easier to maneuver to a downstairs basement (compared to an 8” machine). ...

Shaper Story

Shaper Story

196 days ago by soapmaker | 9 comments »

To review my story so far, I acquired an older grizzly shaper with only the 1/2 inch spindle. I ordered the other two. When I installed them they both had runout like a bent drill bit. I I initially thought the spindle cartridge may have some sort of issue after I installed the first set of spindles. I borrowed a spindle off of my work shaper and it lined up good with a runout of .004” So I took the first set of spindles and checked them on my work machine where they still didn’t improve. So...

Grizlly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead

Grizlly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead

197 days ago by woodmaker | 10 comments »

Well, my lovely wife presented me an early Xmas present in November so I could Umm, make Xmas presents. so I ordered the Grizlly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead. I made a bunch of cutting boards so I ran a lot of walnut, Cherry and Maple through this jointer and it never missed a beat. I’m not going through all the hoopla of shipping/receiving and uncrating except to say it takes two to get that aircraft carrier of a cutter up on the stand. This beast weighs in at 600 pou...

G0555LANV 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Anniversary Edition

G0555LANV 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Anniversary Edition

203 days ago by Shozzy | 20 comments »

Today I received my Grizzly G0555LANV 14” Deluxe Bandsaw – Anniversary Edition, it is my first “real Bandsaw” so I don’t have much to compare it to, this is my first tool review and i am writing this approx an hour after assembling the machine with very little use. That being said you can easily tell when a tool is quality by the appearance, the materials its made of and how it fits together. This bandsaw nailed all three of those, as soon as i opened the box i...
