Another 1023 RLW review.

Another 1023 RLW review.

320 days ago by ksicon | 8 comments »

So let me just say thanks to the community, I don’t normally post anything anywhere but this community was very helpful in making my decision so I feel the need to give back. Hope this helps anyone looking to buy this saw. After trolling these boards and agonizing for about a year I pulled the trigger on a 1023 RLW. Also, so you know where I’m coming from I spent the majority of my childhood learning and projecting on my grandfathers delta unisaw w/bis fence and worked in a sma...

Grizzly G0555LANV - 30 Year Anniversary Edition

Grizzly G0555LANV - 30 Year Anniversary Edition

321 days ago by JSB | 17 comments »

I bought the anniversary edition of the popular G0555. 100% pleased with this saw. Absolutely zero complaints. The fit and finish is flawless. The base is strong. All blade guide and table adjustments are easily adjusted. I can change a blade in about 30 seconds with the quick tension release. It has a blade tension gauge as well. 4” dust collection hose port in the lower rear works great. The motor is strong. I wrote a longer, picture filled article about the saw that you can read here

I bought this sander a year ago and wish I had purchased one years ago. this machine saves hours worth of hand sanding. the only problem I have with it is the feed belt tracking. I have to adjust it after a few hours of use but it is a simple chore to readjust

Like going from a Pinto to a Mustang

Like going from a Pinto to a Mustang

Before I begin my review of the Grizzly TS, my previous TS was a cheap Craftsman. So please keep that in mind as you read my review. Purchasing decision: Before I purchased the 1023RLW, I did my research on the various types of table saws out there. I considered the Bosch 4100 but it was no bigger than my Craftsman. I also considered the Rigid R4512 and Porter-Cable PCB270. The Rigid’s split fence rail design turned me off completely although many say it’s not that big of a ...

It Sucks...And That's a Good Thing

It Sucks...And That's a Good Thing

400 days ago by Matthew Parker | 4 comments »

I’ve had this DC for 9 months now and have emptied the barrel 4 times which should give you an idea how much I use the thing. Another key point about my usage is that I don’t have any ductwork. I connect the DC directly to the tool I am using at the time. I have it hooked up to a 110v 30A outlet which has not tripped during my use. Another reviewer said that this DC could suck the chrome off of a trailer hitch. While that is clearly hyperbole they made the point well. I ha...

When It's Working... It's Great

When It's Working... It's Great

401 days ago by Matthew Parker | 17 comments »

I bought this saw in September 2012 and have used it extensively since then and feel that it’s time for a review, especially after the most recent incident. First of all when the saw is working correctly it is great. I get great looking resaws with both 1/2” and 3/4” blades. I have not used it for many curves such as you would do for a bandsaw box so I won’t evaluate it there. I setup the saw based on the instructions in this video why Grizzly does not outline ...

Grizzly Drum Sander

Grizzly Drum Sander

Last Saturday I and about 1000 other woodworkers went to the tent sale at Grizzly in Muncy, Pa. I made a small purchase of some glue and drill bits and just spent most of the time there looking at tools that I didn’t have in the shop. One tool that I looked at while there was the Grizzly G1066Z 24” Drum Sander. I was really impressed by all the features it has and the quality of the tool. After coming back to the shop and discussing with Chairman of the Board ( no not my wife ) th...

Grizzly T10128 15-in. Spiral Cutterhead on ShopFox 1723 Planer

Grizzly T10128 15-in. Spiral Cutterhead on ShopFox 1723 Planer

430 days ago by wbrisett | 5 comments »

It was time to purchase new blades for ShopFox 1723 15-in. planer. I started thinking about the price of sharping the blades and the price of a spare set of blades and then wanted to see what sort of price I could get on a spiral cutterhead. I’ll be honest with you, I’ve wanted one for a while now. I loved the idea that you didn’t have to replace the entire blade, only the cutters that needed it, and you didn’t have to do that until you had turned each three times, ...

Grizzly 16” G0660X Jointer / Planer Combo

Grizzly 16” G0660X Jointer / Planer Combo

446 days ago by Grovest | 9 comments »

I had difficulty assessing the relative performance of this machine since the machines I have the most experience with are not in the same class (bench-top versus floor machines). The only J/P that I have any hands on experience with has been the Jet JJP-12 and that was limited to a hand on dealer demonstration. The only full size machines I’ve used were those I used nearly 40 years ago in high school and a friend’s old Delta cast iron monsters. Thoughts regarding how this machine compares to...

Grizzly is unbeatable for the money.

Grizzly is unbeatable for the money.

Without a dial indicator and thousandths of an inch feeler gauge there is not a perceptible inaccuracy with this saw. Out of the box it is as flat and square as can be seen without a micrometer. It cuts flat the fence is square the miter gauge sucks but is good at 90 and 45. Vibration is null everywhere. I can cut 3/4 inch birch at midnight with an ultra thin kerf blade and the sound of the saw at my curb is a whisper. Also, it looks like a beast because it is, 400+Lbs of metal and torque. ...
