Sears Contractor Saw 21833

Sears Contractor Saw 21833

01-14-2011 06:19 AM by GeorgeK | 14 comments »

I think I’ve read most of the postings on the 21833. Picked mine up today. Based on what I’d read I expected a big forklift or crane to appear but there was just this little guy pushing a hand truck. He and a buddy pushed it up on the trailer and away we went. Off loading it was a breeze. Backed it up to my shop door and a couple of us carefully lowered it to my hand truck and wheeled it into the shop. Getting all the parts out of the box was a pain because you have to break up...

My New Grizzly G0715P Table Saw

My New Grizzly G0715P Table Saw

12-16-2010 12:12 AM by moonls | 24 comments »

I received my saw 4 days after placing the order and am very pleased with this product! With the help of Ellen35, I assembled the mobile base and got the saw up and running with very few set-backs. The hardest part was getting the saw from the driveway down into my basement shop! The Shop Fox mobile base is very sturdy and makes moving it a breeze. The wings were installed without much effort and the table is dead flat. The only problem with installing the rails wasn’t noticed unt...

Polar Bear in Texas! G0715P

Polar Bear in Texas! G0715P

11-19-2010 05:36 AM by Simons44 | 14 comments »

I assembled my new G0715P table saw today! First Impression:This thing is sweet! The nickle did not move a bit during the test. I used the blade that came with it for my tests before putting on my infinity blade. It cut clean, smooth and left a almost glue ready edge. Conversion to 110:The conversion to 110 was very easy. Of all things, I was the most nervous about this. Changing the circuit breaker was 3 screws, changing the plug was 3 wires and changing the jumpers was 4 screws. VERY ...

Polar Bear in Florida!

I ordered this Grizzly Hybrid saw online on a Friday afternoon. Grizzly sent me an email with all of the shipping information and tracking number. The order was shipped the following Monday and 3 days later it was in my garage! FIRST IMPRESSION The first thing I noticed was the quality of the packaging. The saw was packed very neatly and securely and arrived without any damage. I was even more pleased when I started the unpacking process. I was very impressed with the overall quality of...

Global warming won't stop these Polar Bears.

So I got this saw some weeks ago and it spent a week sitting assembled before I finally got the 220V circuit wired in the garage. I came from a cheap aluminium top table saw, the table was extremely small and fence extremely lacking. I may have had the blade miraculously adjusted to within 0.001” but that only helped my crosscuts. I even designed table extensions so that I can attach a real fence to it, but after many hours in solidworks I finally discovered that was not going to work well in...

Happy with it for the money

Happy with it for the money

10-22-2010 09:53 PM by Kenshu | 15 comments »

About a year ago I picked up my first table saw, an older craftsman contractor saw, for about a hundred dollars. I took it home, cleaned it up, replaced the blade with a freud diablo combination blade, and spent a lot of time tuning it. It didnt take me long to figure out that it was underpowered, the fence was terrible and would not stay aligned and the belt pully had a habit of flying off mid cut (even after being replaced). I spent several months dealing with it and finally decided I ...

First "Real" Table Saw Doesn't Disappoint

First "Real" Table Saw Doesn't Disappoint

10-20-2010 05:39 AM by Manitario | 11 comments »

After outgrowing my $100 Ryobi TS; I decided rather than slightly upgrade, to buy a saw that (hopefully) will last a lifetime. I decided on a granite top TS partly due to the climate I live in; it goes down to -30 in the winter, and I didn’t want my top to warp or rust when I heat my garage. Assembly was relatively pain free; it involved attaching the extension wing, the fence guide bars and the plug; overall about 3h worth of work. The fence needed a very slight adjustment to be parall...

Makita 2703 Portable

Makita 2703 Portable

09-29-2010 06:51 PM by Hermando | 11 comments »

I just wanted to share one of the Makita portable table saws I own and give a review from what I think is a quality table saw and functional with the right setup. I have been reviewing a wide variety of table saws in the past so I could spend more time wood working and not working. This particular table saw is the Makita 2703, which I purchased from Craigslist for $40 and had the Makita service do a complete overhaul of power cord, power switch, bearings and brushes. This saw was pretty r...

I’ve had this saw for about two years. It’s too bad that Rdgid quit manfacturing this saw cause its great saw to own. I have no mechanical problems at all with this saw. I do have the same complaints that everybody else that owns one of these saws has with it. The fence is my biggest problem, the two piece rail has a bump where it connects and I’ve also noticed that when you are cutting 1/4’’ and smaller ply it wants to slide under the fence a little bit. The bla...

Jet 708480K JPS-30: 10-Inch ProShop Table saw 1-3/4-Horsepower 30-Inch Rip fence With Steel Wings I have been woodworking for about 2 years now and felt it was time to spend the necessary dough to improve accuracy, cuts, rips, and broaden techniques.
