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...

Reluctantly joined the Sawstop Club

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?

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...

Grizzly G0715P newbies point of view.

Grizzly G0715P newbies point of view.

05-29-2011 05:23 AM by gillyd | 39 comments »

First off, I’d like to say a few things to give you a bit of context around my review. This is the first table saw I have ever owned, so I have nothing to compare it to. I have been using it now for 4 months, I meant to write a review right away, but I am glad that I waited as my feelings for the saw have changed a bit. Now on to the review. Price: $859 Assembly Time: 5 hours. —————————————- ...

Kudos to Grizzly for an easy Saw to set up

Kudos to Grizzly for an easy Saw to set up

This review is just for unloading and assembling the Grizzly G0690 10” 3hp cabinet saw. and I will say that most of you will not need the manual at all as far as assembly is concerned. I was very impressed with the construction and workmanship of this saw and the price wasn’t bad either. After getting the saw on the ground and in the shop, we unpacked and checked for any damages. The way they pack these things, is almost impossible to receive damage in normal handling. Everything ...

Grizzly G0690 vs. G0715P

Grizzly G0690 vs. G0715P

05-15-2011 11:24 PM by Alpiner | 16 comments »

If you had read my previous review of Grizzly’s G0715P hybrid saw that I received week before last, you know that I had a serious unsafe issue with it, and I received permission from Grizzly to return it. It’s been reboxed, and will be picked up by UPS freight Tuesday. I was leery of getting the same saw again, so I went ahead and ordered a new G0690 cabinet saw, which is what I was considering ordering in the first place. I just wasn’t sure if the $500 price difference w...

I recently sold my 15-year old Jet contractors saw on Craigslist with the intention of upgrading to Grizzly’s new hybrid saw. I was tired of the extraneous sawdust the Jet produced even though I had the saw connected to a 2 HP Grizzly dust collector. Other than that, the Jet came perfectly set up, and I never had to make any adjustments through its 15 years of dedicated service. I received the new Grizzly G0715P this past Tuesday, and had a neighbor assist me in locating it to my b...

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw -- Full Review

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw -- Full Review

03-28-2011 07:09 PM by Furnitude | 39 comments »

The Ridgid R4512 saw has features—including an integral lift/caster mechanism, a tool-less blade guard and riving knife, an accurate fence and good dust collection—on par with much more expensive saws. While it’s easy to get caught up in comparing tolerances, the most important thing to know about a table saw is whether it will do what you need it to do within your budget and space constraints. I generally make furniture and small items in my basement shop. I need a table saw that...

Finally - a real table saw!

Finally - a real table saw!

03-20-2011 06:40 AM by RandyMorter | 29 comments »

I didn’t do any actual woodworking today, but I did do the next best thing – I got a new (to me) tool and worked on it! I bought a used Craftsman 221240 for $200 last week and it was delivered today, 3/19/2010. I paid to have it moved since it weighs about 400 pounds and I didn’t have an easy way to move it myself. Otherwise, my plan was to take it apart and move it that way. Now I almost wish I’d done that since I just about took it all apart anyway after it was de...

Nifty saw made even better by nifty upgrades

Nifty saw made even better by nifty upgrades

I have owned this Ridgid R4510 for about two weeks. During that time I have cut a fair amount of wood with it, and the unit works very well, indeed. The blade growls a bit as it comes up to speed, but once there the operation is smooth as silk. The fence was aligned square out of the box, as was the blade (which I replaced with a new Freud unit for precise ripping work, saving the Ridgid blade for rough-and-tumble stuff), and even the wheels were attached when I unpacked it. I did several ...
