The Full Potential of the R4512

The Full Potential of the R4512

423 days ago by aatwatch | 41 comments »

I have an R4512 with a MLCS cast-iron router table extension, Incra 32” TS-LS fence system, Incra 1000HD miter guage and 48 tooth WWII blade. I love this saw and have no complaints other than being underpowered at times. However, once everything is properly calibrated I would argue that this setup could perform as well as any comparable duty saws and it has made me very happy to own. The MLCS cast-iron extension bolted up easily with the supplied hardware. The middle bolt was tric...

SawStop Customer Service A+++

SawStop Customer Service A+++

Hey everybody, just wanted to inform you all of my experience this afternoon with a sawstop rep in case you are looking into investing in a new table saw or have to call for some help with the one you have. I have an older model contractor saw and I just ordered the dado brake through amazon.com. Well I was setting it up to cut, and kept getting a series of lights indicating that the brake was either to far away or to close the blade. I was not able to get it zoned in just right. So aft...

SawStop Review

SawStop Review

467 days ago by Dan Katz | 26 comments »

Hi Guys, I recently posted that I had pulled the plug on my old Delta Contactors saw.For my 64th birthday my Dad who is 90 bought me a new SawStop.Since I don’t have any insurance I convinced him that it would be a good investment. It was purchased through Highland Woodworking in Atlanta.Everything arrived in perfect shape.I planned on using my Incra TSLS fence, so ordered the shorter Pro-Glide. Sawstop will not sell a PCS without a fence. (ICS maybe)Set up was easy. Attaching the ca...

As I reread my prior post on the sawstop a few things things come to mind. The brake is triggered by contact with a living thing. If you are not gripping the hot dog, we taped one to a board, the saw will cut through it. It has nothing to do with grounding or the meat. It is triggered by capacitance of your body, that contact and it is very slight, pulls the voltage down, because there is voltage on the blade through the arbor – not a simple thing to do – with very little ...

What we did to a Sawstop Industrial and Contractors saw.

What we did to a Sawstop Industrial and Contractors saw.

I am a retired Industrial Arts Teacher. During my career I taught may students the basics of table saw use. I got the chance to to help demo them to a groups of fellow teachers at several inservices attended by as many as 100 fellow shop teachers. We were able to address and test a number of concerns. We burnt up 20+ brakes and blades that day. 1 – Nails in the wood – We were able to rip a 2X4 sample with 3 1/4 air nails driven into about an inch apart through the cut line. We...

Craftsman 21802 13 Amp 120 Volt 10" Table Saw Model number 137.218020

I’ve had this saw for over 2 years and I thought it deserved a long-term review. It’s a decent performer that’s great for light-duty and the not so precision-intense projects. I’ll try to go over everything that my current knowledge will allow me to. Be aware that this is my first review! Out of the box everything went together nice and easy. There’s not much assembly required and if you’re a keen mechanic or builder you should have everything sorted out...

Great saw, but not for the money

Great saw, but not for the money

491 days ago by Cole Tallerman | 41 comments »

So let me start off by saying this review is based on 6 months of hobbyist work and comparing to other saws on the market. Last summer, I had an accident with an old .113 table saw. My parents would not let me use another table saw unless I got a SawStop. So being 16 (not much of a budget) i went with the cheapest one; the contractor saw with 30” rails. (I ended up upgrading to cast iron wings). The good: The saw came perfectly aligned and packed beautifully with great directions....

Good Saw Good Price

Good Saw Good Price

I just picked this saw up today to replace my old Delta Rockwell. Set up was not too bad on this saw, and dialing it in was pretty easy and straight forward. Within four hours I was making saw dust on this table saw. There are enough in depth reviews on this saw on here so I won’t bore anyone with this. I am at this point rating this saw pretty good and will update this rating as I put some hours on this saw. Time to make some more saw dust!

Grizzly is unbeatable for the money.

Grizzly is unbeatable for the money.

Without a dial indicator and thousandths of an inch feeler gauge there is not a perceptible inaccuracy with this saw. Out of the box it is as flat and square as can be seen without a micrometer. It cuts flat the fence is square the miter gauge sucks but is good at 90 and 45. Vibration is null everywhere. I can cut 3/4 inch birch at midnight with an ultra thin kerf blade and the sound of the saw at my curb is a whisper. Also, it looks like a beast because it is, 400+Lbs of metal and torque. ...
