NICE SAW FOR THE MONEY

NICE SAW FOR THE MONEY

09-24-2017 08:15 PM by pottz | 7 comments »

just got this saw set up this morning and put it to the test.so far I’m real happy with it.i intend this as second saw so I can set it up with dado blades to avoid changing blades back and forth.its wired for 110v but can be changed to 220v.after the setup I checked for squareness and found it to be right the money.the fence is smooth and locks firmly.the dust collection port is only 2.5” so I put on an adaptor to connect my 4” hose which did a great job catching most of wha...

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

09-24-2017 04:23 AM by Rudy81 | 4 comments »

After many years of working on a basic Jet JWTS-10 that I got off Cragislist, I finally got a chance to purchase a Sawstop PCS. The saw purchase came after adding a Clear View Cyclone to the shop, but that’s another story. The Sawstop packaging was outstanding. Ease of assembly and directions were excellent. Fit and finish were also excellent and I found the tool alignment and calibration to be very good right out of the box. I purchased the PCS 3hp. unit with the 52” fence sys...

Grizzly G0690 Tablesaw Review

Grizzly G0690 Tablesaw Review

09-16-2017 06:43 AM by unclearthur | 9 comments »

Pros:- Grizzly customer service is unfailingly polite- I learned a lot about tablesaws. Nothing like taking one apart to learn how they operate.- I’ve got a lot of practice using my bandsaw- adrenalin rush when you realize you’ve switched off the saw but the blade isn’t stopping! Cons:- brand new Grizzly G0690 tablesaw was unsafe to use- 2 months of wasted time - Having to return the 500 lb saw at my own time and expense to Grizzly Much of this saga is told in real...

Getting on the G0771z Bandwagon

Getting on the G0771z Bandwagon

08-23-2017 11:35 PM by NeophyteGrant | 10 comments »

I lurked for months on Lumberjocks before making this purchase. Always the researcher, I had my reservations about some of the QC and manufacture complaints. I feel comfortable saying—as seems the consensus—the G0771z is a good bargain. I don’t think you’ll find a better saw for the money, and with the Z model, released at some point last year, you get the T-style B-meyer fence (the fence face does have 3 total tracks—2 on the face and one on the top). That was o...

Grizzly Table Saw, best birthday present ever

Grizzly Table Saw, best birthday present ever

08-22-2017 08:59 PM by Zoomie | 15 comments »

Turning 60 this year and the little lady read my wish list and I got the cabinet saw I’ve wanted for the past 30 years. Truly a compromise on some level but for me the value is extraordinary given the Grizzly price and the small differences that I as a hobby woodworker will never miss. I actually went to Springfield MO to see it in person and am glad I did. The saw was outstanding but the mobile base was awkward and not very mobile . . . but I needed it to be. Grizzly shipping and U...

Grizzly G0771Z

Grizzly G0771Z

Hey everyone. I just received my Grizzly G0771Z yesterday and I felt that I should add my experience to the forum. First of all, delivery went just fine (ordered Monday, received next Monday). The driver was willing to pull it into my garage for me. (not a long driveway though) There were a number of cuts and punctures in the cardboard on both the main saw and the fence packages. I noted them on the receipt and took pictures. I went ahead and opened up the packages and everything looked...

A Good Saw, I'd Say!

A Good Saw, I'd Say!

06-14-2017 01:15 AM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

My old benchtop table saw bit the dust not so long ago, so I started researching for a replacement. This saw not only met those requirements but gave me two bunuses. I wanted a saw that was not too much more than my last one and I wanted a greater cutting width and some kind of on-board outfeed support. This one gave me everything. For that matter, the T-slots match the ones on my old saw which was not the same brand, so I was able to use my cross-cut sled from the start! The Good: The ...

There are a lot of Sawstop reviews both here on LJ’s and on Youtube and other places. Everyone says that it is a quality item and has the infamous safety feature. I’ve only had my new Saw for a couple of weeks and made a few dozen cuts with it and you already know about the saw in general having seen the hotdog videos I’m sure, but there’s more to point out. Some companies have a different philosophy. What comes to mind are companies like Tesla. Get the best enginee...

Mixed review after 1st month of use

Mixed review after 1st month of use

04-07-2017 07:14 PM by Elwyn24601 | 8 comments »

I will try and keep this somewhat short and as sweet as I can. the TL;DR will be at the bottom in the form of pro’s and cons. My background: I am a 25 year old chemist by day and recently a woodworker by night, I grew up doing stage-craft so I and wood have a long, on again off again, relationship (the off again parts due mostly do uncertain living conditions and lack of funds). The Search: I started looking at the ridgid r4512 as a starting point, so as any self respecting millen...

Just thought I’d share my Delta 36 725. New on site but the reviews on here are the reason I went with it. It was down to it and Rigid saw. Kept looking on CL with no luck either cheap saws or out of my budget. I read all the horror stories on both saws. Found this site and several good reviews and all tips on set up so I purchased it. Set up wasnt bad thanks to tips on here. Only real problem I have is finally got riving knife acceptable and just gave up. I need the saw to be mobil but...
