And I got money’s worth with the Craftsman Contractor Table Saw, model 21833. One of the benefits to being out of work is that I can shop endlessly on Craigslist- I saw someone selling this good looking table saw for $450.00, checked the reviews on Lumberjocks and decided this might fit my needs. As luck would have it, there were 2 available at the Sears Outlet Store. One was in Minneapolis, 1,500 miles away and one at the store just 25 miles away. I hustled on over, paid $330.00 before ta...

My Grizzy Experience

My Grizzy Experience

08-02-2011 03:12 AM by Danc333 | 38 comments »

Hello, This is my first post, but I wanted to talk about my experience so far. After much research I decided to buy a Grizzly 715 hybrid table saw. It arrived well packed and in excellent condition. I took my time setting it up and installing my TS-LS positioner with router table. It took me a couple weeks to finish, working a couple hours at night. I have to say over all I am very impressed with the saw. I like the build quality and the fit and finish are very good. The cast iron table is le...

Grizzly G0690 Sawed in Alabama

Grizzly G0690 Sawed in Alabama

07-22-2011 06:40 PM by woodmaker | 22 comments »

I finally have 220 in the shop now and cut my first piece of wood with this saw.Only a 2×6 but it went through the saw like warm butter. I was very pleased.Vibration is near zero and the saw is very quite; I was surprised as to just how quiet. This is my 3rd table saw all others were big box bought portable contractor type. I’m not going to repeat all the specs again, most folks here already know about this saw. As far as the cosmolene there was very little actually; I was...

Please don’t be too concerned with my 3 STAR evaluation, I had to put something there and haven’t had the opportunity to use the saw. I am getting ready to start my first project, by the time I am through, I will be ready to give it a better/worse rating. I just purchased this R4510 Ridgid. I like it so far but it does have some irritating points. Trying to find a zero clearance insert for the standard blade and a dado blade is a lesson in futility. I finally had to make my own...

SawStop 1.75HP Cabinet Saw with 36" rails review

SawStop 1.75HP Cabinet Saw with 36" rails review

06-30-2011 02:44 AM by Ty | 10 comments »

After much contemplation, I purchased the SawStop 1.75 Cabinet Saw with 36” rails. For several years, the only table saw I ever experienced was a Delta contractor saw. So yes, SawStop is a HUGE upgrade. First, the assembly directions are extremely well done. Absolutely no problem putting this saw together, other than the Woodcraft employee who didn’t know what SawStop was and failed to give me the correct rails. Aside from that issue, I was able to assemble the saw approximat...

PLEASE NOTE I have edited this review after a few weeks with the saw. Here is the original review and my update follows: I accidentally spent the whole day in the garage assembling my new Ridgid saw. So here are my impressions: The saw is very sturdy, and assembly was very easy despite a few typos and some items that were not clearly identified. All the parts are well machined, and everything has a good but not excessive coat of cosmoline. I will not that there are several review...

Blade alignment issues all of the sudden

Blade alignment issues all of the sudden

06-15-2011 07:06 AM by NormG | 15 comments »

I purchased this saw as an upgrade February 2010, at a very good price with the blessings of my wife. I initially had some of the same issues others had with the set up of this TS. My son saw an entry in LJ’s that very helpful and I joined. I changed the bolts, washers, etc. What was the most help was an entry that suggested loosening the 45/90 set screws in front of the blade and everything just fell right into place. The saw was packed well, it did not have damage and/or missin...

So I bought a Sawstop. I was perfectly happy with my General International granite topped TS, but I have been increasingly concerned about my safety when using it. Namely, I’m an ER doctor, and need my fingers or most of them at least. I debated for a long time about this saw, and whether a) if I needed it (as I already am a very safe and careful TS user…most days) and b) if it really would help prevent a serious injury. In answer to “a”: I realized that as careful as I am using the TS, ...

What's a polar bear doing in the desert?

After reading some positive reviews about this tablesaw I finally decided to pull the trigger only to find some unfavorable reviews after. Hopefully my review helps others make a decision either way. My previous tablesaw is an old Craftsman built in 1971. It’s like an old hybrid saw and well built but lacked dust collection and a splitter or riving knife. Safety is a big concern and this is a positive step until I can purchase a Sawstop cabinet saw.The package arrived in good shape...
