Grizzly Tablesaw

02-22-2009 10:16 PM by conwaydog | 18 comments »

OK, I finally pulled the trigger on a tablesaw. I have had this one in views for a few months. I did my countless hours of internet reviews as one should for such an item like this. I must admit I did see a few negative reviews, but most of which was the customer service from Grizzly. I have purchased two items previously (Bandsaw and dustcollector) and had minor problems. My bandsaw shipped with no visible damage to the boxes but when I opened the box up someone had slipped the fork fro...

McBridge Cabinets, New Table Saw

McBridge Cabinets, New Table Saw

02-15-2009 08:27 PM by ND2ELK | 23 comments »

I got my Powermatic 2000 table saw the other day. It is a 10” 3HP saw with a 50” Accufence and extention table. I also got a free Powermatic metal sign, zero clearance insert and zero clearance dado insert. I bought the saw from Tool-Plus for $2,669 which included the saw, freight and tail gate service http://www.tools-plus.com/powermatic-1792000k.html. The saw was very well packaged and came thru with no damage. Everything was there except for the hardware package for the Accu...

Hello Lumberjocks,Just received and set up my new Steel City 10 inch cabinet saw with riving knives.A couple other Steel City saws have been reviewed recently, I’ll try to limit myself to what I observed and try not to repeat too much of what the other guys had to say.BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT: I love this saw. It was a major investment. I spent many months spread over several years researching cabinet saws. I’ve waited until I believe I won’t have to move this saw for the fo...

Ridgid  TS2400LS table saw I can't do without.

Ridgid TS2400LS table saw I can't do without.

01-11-2009 11:26 PM by scrollworkman | 17 comments »

I have owned my Ridgid portable for two and half years and now the brushes need replacing. This will be a two week wait for the parts to come in. I will borrow my Dad’s 60 year old Sears table saw while I wait.A life time warranty does not make up for quality.I don’t recall my father’s saw needing repair and if it did the parts were readily available. I love the portability and performance of the Ridgid TS2400LS but I would prefer a two for one deal over a life time warra...

Very happy but with a bit of drama of course

Very happy but with a bit of drama of course

Saw Overview:Well, I decided it was time to purchase a new tablesaw. After quite a bit of research, budgeting, and window shopping I decided to go with the Steel City granite top saw. Since I only have 120 VAC power, I went with the 1.75 HP version. I have called Steel City several time and received excellent customer service as you will see as this review continues. Anyway, I asked Steel City if there were any structural differences between the 1.75 and 3 HP models and was told that they are...

SawStop 10-Inch Contractors Saw with 50" rails and 30" outfeed table Assembly

SawStop 10-Inch Contractors Saw with 50" rails and 30" outfeed table Assembly

My saw arrived last week and my sons had to go pick it up at WoodCraft for me since I had shoulder surgery last Tuesday. Well, I felt good enough yesterday to start assembling my new SawStop Contractors table saw. The first thing I noticed is that it was boxed, packed and labeled very clearly. Each box had what was inside clearly printed on the outside so there was no guessing, no “eenie-meenie-miney-mo” type activity. I ordered:10” contractor sawmobile basecast iron...

Craftsman Professional 22124 10" table saw

Craftsman Professional 22124 10" table saw

12-20-2008 03:49 PM by Frostyjo | 23 comments »

After months of reading reviews and a little groveling at home, I finally got myself a new table saw. I decided on the Craftsman 22124. One of the first things I noticed while I was researching was the Craftsman, Delta and Steel City hybrid saws appear to be identical. The only noted differences are the fences offered, and the Delta comes with extension legs. The shipping label on the box my saw came in was labeled ‘Steel City’ and had the model number of their hybrid (with a Craftsman la...

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

Good saw if space is tight or you need portability

12-04-2008 09:44 PM by ferstler | 6 comments »

I read a review of another Ryobi table saw elsewhere on this site and the owner was not happy with it at all. He basically criticized the small size of the saw and the lack of quality in the fence. Well, we have to remember that saws of that kind are low-priced items, built for use in tight spaces and for owners (or woodworking dabblers) on strict budgets. The reviewed saw was different from the BTS20 reviewed here, but it is possible that the fences for each unit were the same, or at leas...

worked the saw hard for 2 years

worked the saw hard for 2 years

11-12-2008 07:43 PM by Todd McDonald "2 Bored Saws" | 2 comments »

I bought that same saw (Hitachi) two years ago, I have worked it hard cutting 3×3x8’ oak up into 1×1x8’ then into 1×1x5 inches, it has never quit me. I threw that plastic dust collection pan in the trash, and make my own that fits a 4” duct. I am about to buy another one. This saw has made me alot of money. I don’t use it every day, but every other day I work the crap out of it. I am not a pro (not close) just a extra money type a job. All my cuts ...

Bosch Table Saw

Bosch Table Saw

This saw is great. I needed a portable saw that was accurate and this fit the bill. All I can say is BUY THIS SAW if you are in the market for something portable. It has everything you want in a table saw. Dust collection is good with a shop vac and I like that the miter gauge is full size and not a ‘mini’ one that come with most portable saws. The fence is aluminum with built in T-track which is very nice. It’s quiet and has a soft-start. I was especially impressed with t...
