i really needed to get a tool like this into my shop, and i am very happy to state this is my first jointer, and mighty nice tool indeed! i am very spoiled to have something this nice at my disposal! Grizzly was selling these units as blem’s through their eBay storefront. the cost savings was substantial and it was stated that the paint was uneven, blotchy, and not up to Grizzly standards. the tool still carried a full factory warranty on all parts other than the paint finish. I deci...

I'm a bit on the cheap side

I'm a bit on the cheap side

11-11-2008 02:50 AM by Shopsmithtom | 9 comments »

I recently read (in Fine Woodworking Magazine # 197, April, 2008) a review of several brands of forstner bits and decided that my Harbor Freight 7 piece set (1/4” – 1”) bought on sale for $5.00 was obsolete. That set, by the way, served me well for the money spent…as anyone who has read anything I’ve added to this sight in the past may remember, I’m really cheap… but I really needed more larger bit sizes. After reading the article, I noted that the...

Grizzly 8" jointer comparisions

Grizzly 8" jointer comparisions

09-30-2008 06:18 AM by tooldad | 21 comments »

It is not too often someone other than a writer from a woodworking magazine gets to buy 2 different models of the same tool and compare them. I looked through the Grizzly catalog and website and did some paper comparision. I chose the G0586 for the school shop. It was $100 cheaper and had handwheel adjustments for both the tables and the fence. Once I got down to Springfield to pickup the tools, I went shopping for myself (this was planned) My first intention was to get the same jointe...

Flapping in the Breeze

Flapping in the Breeze

I make and sell a lot of cutting boards. 50% or more of the time involved is sanding so I am always looking for ways to cut the sanding time down. It gets downright tiring sanding the round-over edges with a ROS, especially when I am finishing 10 boards at a time. I had heard about flap sanders, but didn’t know much about them. What amazed me when searching the Internet I found very few companies that make them. What I did find was the Grizzly G8749. I have used this for about thr...

Grizzly G0478 2 HP Hybrid Cabinet Saw Review

Grizzly G0478 2 HP Hybrid Cabinet Saw Review

07-18-2008 03:47 PM by Timber4fun | 17 comments »

Introduction – After 16 years of using a Craftsman contractor-style table saw, I decided to investigate and upgrade to a cabinet saw. My priorities included dust collection, accurate fence, performance, accurate/efficient cuts, quality components, functionality, size, and price. I am a no nonsense type of person. I really don’t want a bunch of fancy marketing features that tend to break in the first 5 years. Give me a good solid tool and I am happy. The Grizzly G0478 2 HP Hybrid Cabinet ...

Had a little extra cash in my pocket so couldn’t resist a trip to Grizzly in Williamsport. I’ve been thinking about a drum sander for some time. I made the purchase. It’s very heavy – takes at least two people to put it together. What was amazing was that it was perfect right out of the box. The conveyer tracked right on and no adjustment was needed for the drum. I have not changed the sandpaper yet but it appears straight foreword. A nice feature is that it has it&...

So it began by ordering it off line. I was kinda nervous about getting a hybrid, but if i didn’t spend the money i had right then …. my car would have broken down or some mysterious thing would have happen that would have taken all my money. So as i’m patiently waiting like a child before Christmas pacing back and forth for this saw to arrive… The saw finally arrives via Saia Motor transportation at about 7:05 pm …. the driver had a long day, he said, as i talk...

Spiral cutters worth the cost!

Spiral cutters worth the cost!

04-08-2008 06:33 AM by tooldad | 12 comments »

I was recently able to obtain a 5hp Grizzly 1033X 20” Planer for my school shop. Our old 20” planer has been around for 10 years and has seen better days. I convinced admin that this was the way to go and the extra cost would be worth it to cut on noise levels. I have always heard of this but have never experienced it until just a month ago. Boy were they right! We now have 2 planers in the shop. The spiral cutter is quieter standing next to the machine than standing in the ...

Grizzly G0656 8" JOINTER 3HP W/ MOBILE BASE

03-17-2008 02:48 AM by DaveH | 14 comments »

Just finished assembly and initial testing of my new jointer. My initial reaction is very positive. All parts required for assembly were present and accounted for and nothing was damaged. The assembly took about 4 hours. I just followed the instructions included and everything went together and the fit was good. Overall quality is good. The in feed and out feed tables are flat and aligned as well as the fence. Test cuts were good. I looked at Jet, Delta and Powermatic before ordering ...
