Love my cabinet saw!

Love my cabinet saw!

578 days ago by Eli Akin | 29 comments »

Just wanted to give a quick review on my new PCS175. I have been saving for an extremely long time to make this purchase. I am a musician and a graphic / web designer so if I lose my fingers, I lose my career and I wanted to lower my chances of that happening. Regardless of the breaking system, the saw is incredible. Best assembly instructions that I have ever used by far. I do recommend 2 or three people to put this thing together, at least until the cast iron extensions are attached. Wh...

I have been a woodworker for about 3 years, but have only recently gotten serious. Last March I purchased the Porter Cable, from Lowes, $599. I agonized for year over what table saw to buy. Price wasn’t the biggest issue, it was mostly concern over spending a great deal of money and being disappointed in the result. However, from some classes I took and research I did, it became clear that the equipment doesn’t make the woodworker, so to speak. I also realized that size was a...

My new G0661 Table Saw

My new G0661 Table Saw

580 days ago by kdc68 | 19 comments »

I have my new Grizzly set up and overall I’ve been pleased with its features and performance. I started out a bit bad because in the box were four right legs instead of two lefts, and two rights. Grizzly sent out the left legs right away, so no big deal. The first project using the saw was the extension table to the right of the blade. Not a lot of cutting, but gave me a feel for it’s operation. My old table saw was a Craftsman 10” that I bought new 20 years ago. I sol...

Craftsman Contractor TS

Got this saw new for Christmas. it replaced a smaller, direct drive Craftsman TS that I had had for a few years. The box is a monster, weighing in at a little over 275 ibs. You will need help (or some lumber to use as a ramp) getting it out of your vehicle. Once on the ground though, it moves around relatively easily (at least on my garage floor) since it is extremely well packed and a sturdy box. PACKAGINGThe top packaging slab is a polystyrene tray that contains 90% of the bits and p...

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw --

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw --

580 days ago by fstellab | 38 comments »

Hi Folks,I have about 3 weeks experience with my new R4512, and about 6 months working with wood. I started with a Ridgid Miter Saw, I was blown away, it is a great miter saw. So Ridgid tools are my tool of choice. First I must mention that I originally got a Craftsman 10” Laser guided table for Christmas, I spent days trying to get the thing together. I tried cutting a boards, but I got a bad feeling, I was scared of the thing. I tuned as per the manual, but the first time I used it th...

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

Well finally recieved my saws after 5 weeks’s of waiting. Both saws were shipped in sturdy wooden packing crates, and were pretty well fully assembled. They were covered in plastic and some type of grease preventing them from rusting during transport. Neither saw had one scratch or any paint problems. I was very happy to recieve them in this condition. One major problem they sent the wrong fence and rails with the Cabinet saw, now I am waiting again. Hopefully it shows up soon as I a...

Rigid 4510, a Beginner's Perspective

Rigid 4510, a Beginner's Perspective

I have been lucky enough to be collecting some tools to help me expand my project capabilities from rough carpentry to some finer work. I recently got a planer, and today added a table saw. Previously I had made very good, and I’d like to think creative, use of a straight cut guide for my circular saw and a compound miter saw. After having worn out my CMS, I was preparing to purchase another, and decided to instead give it a little TLC and buy a table saw. I read many reviews and ...

Good enough, but not perfect

Good enough, but not perfect

614 days ago by colvinatch | 21 comments »

First, for what it’s worth, I have a Masters degree in functional design (woodworking) and studied under a master woodworker for 4 years. In our school shop we had large industrial 1960’s and 1970’s vintage Delta and Powermatic tools that had as much iron and steel in them as a Mack truck, so I know how a real saw is supposed to work, look and feel. Flash forward 15 years… For five years I have been using a crappy entry level ($100.00) table saw and it is simply god...

G1023RLW after a year and a few projects...

615 days ago by harvey4804 | 8 comments »

I purchased this G1023RLW back in October 2010. After a few back-orders I finally received the saw December 2010. Now, I purchased this saw because I was in the process of purchasing a house and we were only weeks away from closing and I figured that by the time the saw ships, I’d be moved in… WELLLL, long story short and nearly a year later and almost 10 offers on 10 other homes later we ended up closing August 2011 on the ONLY “traditional sale” in my area. Since th...
