Basically a good saw but...

06-16-2018 04:07 PM by RonHoof | 14 comments »

I’ve had the R4512 for a little over 2 years. It has served it’s purpose without wowing me. The fence has always been an issue. After 2 years of monkeying around with the alignment and settling for less than perfect. I accidentally found out that the fence rail is TWISTED. Now I know not to mess around with alignment anymore. I planned on building my own Biesemeyer fence so it’s not that big of a deal right now.Now, on to the biggest, dangerous item. I was using my R4512 to ...

Happy, after some difficulties

Happy, after some difficulties

05-01-2018 01:42 PM by Pixxture | 4 comments »

Had some difficulty obtaining the saw from UPS freight, Grizzly’s chosen freight provider, at least in my area. UPS could not deliver because:Day 1: I could not be home from 7:30 to 6:00 waiting for delivery, I had to be out for 3 hours that day.Day 2. It was snowingDay 3. It might snowDay 4. Tailgate brokenDay 5. Turbos on truck brokenFinally the saw was delivered. As difficult as UPS freight is to deal with their drivers are TERRIFIC. I gave the driver a hefty tip for rolling it into the...

Finally went and done it

Finally went and done it

04-30-2018 11:31 PM by skiler | 9 comments »

I finally went and done it. My R4512 finally stopped making good cuts so I got a Grizzly. I am SOOOOOOO impressed with this saw. Came with out a scratch on it. Easy to set up (with help). It was aligned right out of the box. The hardest part was getting it to my shop. It weighs 300 lbs in the box. Got an appliance dolly and a great big friend to help me move it. Made several cuts with it today. They were perfect. If you are thinking about an up grade, this is a really good deal.

Better saw than most

Better saw than most

03-22-2018 09:10 PM by TheStairMaster | 17 comments »

I worked with various table saw brands thru out the years, the one brand I always liked was the Powermatic, I owned a few starting with the 66 model and always enjoyed this brand, but, lately, due to safety concerns having children around the shop, I decided it is time to look into the Saw Stop brand and, of course after a little research, I decided that it would be in my best interest to go with the ICS 5hp single phase.Man do I like this saw….this is a beast of a machine, precise and ...

NICE SAW FOR THE MONEY

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 | 7 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 | 11 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 | 16 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

08-16-2017 03:45 AM by Bikerdan | 23 comments »

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...
