Preliminary review with useful shipping carton size information

Preliminary review with useful shipping carton size information

01-04-2017 06:44 PM by Jeff Mazur | 17 comments »

This isn’t a full review – haven’t even opened the box yet – but I want to post it in order to help others who may have had my same concerns about the size of the carton. FYI, the saw came shipped with cartons and pallet in EXTREMELY good condition (vendor was Woodcraft, shipped via UPS.) So, so far, 5 star experience with a happy surprise, read on for the surprise… My concern was about whether I could get the saw all the way into my workshop without having ...

I guess that if you hear enough people saying the same thing, there might be some truth to it. This was the case with my recent Unisaw purchase. I went to pick the saw up at Lowes and when they brought it out it was packed in a fashion that was screaming damage me. It came in four separate boxes, the table saw body, the saw side table, the fence, and the bar that the fence sits on. As many other people have noted, the fence box and the side table box where destroyed. Laguna does a better job ...

Just got my G0715P delivered

Just got my G0715P delivered

12-05-2016 06:52 PM by BobinSachse | 14 comments »

I just got my Grizzly G0715P delivered on Friday. Lift gate service dropped it right at my shop door. pulled the saw and smaller pallet off of the delivery pallet and into the shop with my fridge dolly. Not too much trouble.Got to it on Sunday to begin set up. took about an hour to get it onto the Shop Fox mobile base. No helper available…. Everything was going just fine until I tried to install the rear rail to the table for the fence. It has 4 bolts to do this talk, two M10-1.5&...

Decisions, decisions...

I recently decided to upgrade my table saw. The JET 10” hybrid saw I bought new about 17 years ago has served me well, but I wanted to take advantage of some of the advancements in table saw design that have occurred since then. There were two major developments in table saws that I was adamant about having on my new saw. The first was a riving knife. Not merely a splitter, but a true riving knife that raises, lowers, and tilts with the blade. Back when I bought my JET, riving knives wer...

Byrnes Model Machines

Byrnes Model Machines

10-18-2016 06:24 AM by Bobthewoodbutcher | 4 comments »

About a year ago I bought (in fairly rapid succession) three of Jim Byrnes machine products. I had been looking for a miniature saw, and read glowing reviews of the “Jim Saw”. Well, I can attest to the super quality of all three of these machines in my shop. These were intended primarily for dollhouse furniture, but have been very useful for all sorts of projects. One of my current projects is a jewelry box that required many 1/4 and 3/8 panels. No sweat; just resaw (bandsaw) ...

Bosch REAXX Jobsite Saw

Bosch REAXX Jobsite Saw

10-01-2016 02:03 PM by Woodbridge | 16 comments »

I bought the new Bosch REAXX jobsite saw in July 2016. This is a great table saw for a woodworker who wants a high quality, powerful and accurate table saw but does not have the need or room for a larger cabinet , hybrid or contractor type table saw. If you work in a small basement shop or in your garage you will appreciate the small footprint and mobility of the saw. The REAXX table saw includes flesh sensing technology (Bosch calls it Active Response Technology). When the saw dete...

4 years later for this workhorse

4 years later for this workhorse

06-26-2016 10:51 PM by Cato | 3 comments »

First reviewed this saw a few months after getting it in March 2012. 4 years later and I am as happy today as when I first got the saw. This saw runs smooth, is powerful, and is easy to maintain. The fence is true and stays accurate without needing adjustment, ever. Modular blade guard that it shares with Powermatic is great. Table top has been terrific and when I had to store the saw when we moved just a coat of WD specialist sprayed on it protected it from humidity and moisture ...

Wicked Awesome Saw!

Wicked Awesome Saw!

Ok. I apologize for the Bostonian title. It won’t happen again. Lol! So after about 6 months of research, looking at saws by going to tool dealers, Craigslist post, consignment shops and so on… I settled on the 36-725. My wife figured out the saw I wanted and got me the 36-5000! She figured it was better and I wasn’t about to argue. So on to the review: There’s not much more that I can say that hasn’t already been said about the 36-725. Differences are th...

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

05-05-2016 05:28 PM by Matt | 15 comments »

I purchased this saw after finally committing to building out my long dreamed about woodshop. I had a bunch of contractor/jobsite grade tools and didn’t really have any experience with professional grade WW tools. Background: (I’m a hobbyist) Originally I had purchased a Ridgid R4510 (R45101) and it failed while trying to rip 12/4 poplar. Sure…... it was a lot for it to cut, but what’s the point of a blade height of 3 1/4” when it can’t cut that much...

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

I bought it today, after I found out that the Bosch REAXX GTS1041A isn’t going to be available for awhile yet, and I wanted to get a safer saw now, not whenever. The point of this post is to look at positive solutions you have come up with for MY alleged problems with the saw I just bought. That said- #1. The miter gauge is loose in the slots. (.010” “slop”). Yes, I know it is a contractor’s saw (edit to add- yes that is a Job Site Saw). I had expected better,...
