I’ve owned this saw a little over a year now, figured it was about time to write a review. FYI; the orange box store is now stocking an updated version of this saw with a riving knife and various other updates. My saw is the older version, but from what I can tell, not much different, save some cosmetic updates and the riving knife. Out of the box, it came reasonably well tuned, though needed fixing. Aligning the blade to the slots is a matter of three allen screws and a small hammer...

Ridgid R4511 my own little review

01-02-2010 06:28 AM by cliffton | 33 comments »

just as a disclaimer my last table saw was a craftsman benchtop tablesaw. It worked well for what it was meant for but I was quickly running into its limitations and was getting quite upset with it. This is my first what i would like to call my first “real” table saw in that its meant for precision work and not basically a circle saw mounted upside down. Man this thing was a bugger to find, I called every HD in west TX and east NM and found that one of the Amarillo stores h...

Just a short review for now…..Santa just left it a few day go. It is a great saw, so far no draw backs. Cut out kitchen cabnets this weekend (3/4” ply wood) and it preformed like a champ. Well put it to the test in the weeks to come and have a full review, but right now a solid 5 start saw.

new saw for xmas

new saw for xmas

This is what my wife got me for xmas, I guess I was a good boy this year. I have not seen a table saw built so heavy and nice as this since I was in High School woodshop in 1978. Wow and it cuts straight right out of the box. I have not used the router table yet I still need to buy a router. I would highly recomend this saw to anyone who wants a great saw at a great price.

Okay I must admit that this has drastically improved my shop. I had been using a thirty year old cotractors saw, that although I had fitted with a Vega Fence, out feed tables etc, Was nearing the end of it’s life. Bought this one after doing some SERIOUS research :o).....and ….ah reading some reviews on this site. The motor is nice and strong (recently cut some 7 quarter hard maple with no porblems). The beisey fence is a dream!!!Blade was perfectly aligned to the miter right ou...

Table Saw

Table Saw

11-28-2009 05:25 PM by tonycr28 | 1 comment »

This was one of my first purchases when I first started woodworking. I thought it would be all I needed. I was wrong. Don’t get me wrong. It does cut pretty true and functions really well, but you cannot find or use any accessories on the saw. I looked high and low for zero clearance throat inserts, but ended up making my own. I tried to find a featherboard that would fit, but no luck. On dado blades your limited to I think it is 1/2”. If you look in any woodworking retail...

Great saw. The Grizzly G0690

Great saw. The Grizzly G0690

11-26-2009 03:47 PM by MoreWoodPlease | 26 comments »

This is a great saw. $1250.00 no shipping, no tax. 3hp, riving knife, left tilt, bessimeyer style fence, solid construction, three belt, 240v. In the pic, I used some weather stripping to seal the motor door, better dust extraction, also seal the lower pan in the cabinet. I ordered the Heavy Duty Shop Fox base by mistake. The base is too big for this saw, so I cut 2 1/4 from the long rails of the base with a recip saw and a metal cutting blade. The result is a much heftier base than the...

Great value in a contractor saw

Great value in a contractor saw

I’ve been using an early 1980s-era Craftsman 9-inch portable table saw with a steel table and stamped steel extension wings. After deciding that I needed something a little more precise than this older saw, I was looking to upgrade and was attracted to the Bosch 4100-09 partly because of the reviews, but mostly because of the blade guard/riving knife it features. I wasn’t really wanting another portable saw, however, and was looking for something beefier instead. I discovered this...

Craftsman 21802 (10 in. Table Saw with Stand)

Craftsman 21802 (10 in. Table Saw with Stand)

10-13-2009 03:56 PM by michaeldmunro | 10 comments »

This being my first product review, I might miss some obvious things, but I’ll give it my best shot. At around $100, the Craftsman 21802 10 in. Table Saw is a good beginner’s saw. This is also my first table saw. I had no expectations other than when I was done I would be able to cut wood with it! The assembly was easy and I had it together in about 30 minutes or so. All the parts for the stands fit nice and everything lined up where it was supposed to. After assembly I set ...

I said to my wife “I think I am going to buy a new table saw” She said “why”..... you have one already. I said a present to myself for retiring out of the Navy with 22 years. She said go ahead just make sure you get the one you want. “WHAT”...... Well here she is. Yup, this is all I got done today Just putting it together. Hmm… a review on putting it together. Easy, you get this black folder manual looks like something you get with a new car. Anyw...
