Powermatic PM2000 - Assembly and setup review

03-23-2013 02:18 AM by darthford | 16 comments »

I finished the assembly and setup on this tablesaw last night and wanted to share my observations good and not so good. Shipping: Arrived in good shape overall, one minor shipping rub on the cabinet base through the yellow paint to the black base paint and one minor rub on the black extension table. My two bothers lifted the saw as I yanked the pallet out from underneath, no hoist required. The good 1. Mobile base is great, all four wheels rotate so its easy to maneuver the saw in an...

My Griz G0715P

My Griz G0715P

Delivery: Took 5 days. I paid Grizzly the extra $34 for lift gate service which gets your saw off the back of the truck and onto the ground. At this point they are done. Grizzly said that I would have to call the freight company (UPS) to get a quote to get it inside the garage. UPS quoted me $199 to wheel it in, but encouraged me to chat with the driver first. In other words she was trying to tell me that the driver would probably just do it for me, and he did. Customer service was ve...

Grizzly 1023RLW 10" 3 HP 220V Table Saw

Grizzly 1023RLW 10" 3 HP 220V Table Saw

I received this saw about a week ago. I must say, whoever built this saw, must have just come back from a long and relaxing vacation. It was built perfectly. The powder coat was spot on, no overspray to be found. The build date shows to be late January 2013 so it’s fresh off the boat. That may be why there was very little cosmoline to clean up. The packaging was very good and shipping went without a hitch and no damage to either of the boxes. Assembly went without difficulty; the instructi...

Very Happy with my new table saw

Very Happy with my new table saw

02-24-2013 01:59 PM by Don | 20 comments »

Well, I’ve had my new CX200 for about two months now and overall, I couldn’t be happier. My old BT3100 said our goodbyes and I borrowed my son, his friend and his truck and off to Busy Bee we went. I had actually purchased the saw two weeks prior to this but I wanted to sell my old one before getting the CX200 home. As it was, I got it home and the BT3100 was still in the garage so I just left it in boxes. Three of us manhandled this 500 lb bad boy off the back of the pickup…...

Almost Two Years with My Grizzly

Almost Two Years with My Grizzly

02-23-2013 10:29 AM by WillyParker | 7 comments »

I feel fortunate to have this fine machine. After trading up from an ancient contractors saw which although carefully calibrated and adjusted, had limited power and stability. While the new Grizzly is certainly not perfect, in every area significant area, this machine is excellent. It capably performs the most precise woodworking tasks. The machine arrived from the factory with the arbor exactly parallel with the miter slots. As many of you know this is extremely important for doing precis...

Can't go wrong with Felder

Can't go wrong with Felder

Don’t see too many people around with sliders so I wanted to talk about mine for a bit. The outrigger table holds your work while it slides past the blade so cutting panels is a breeze. It’s harder to rip solid wood down but I do that as well. This model has a 5.5 hp 3 phase motor so it doesn’t break a sweat cross cutting 2” hickory. The outrigger has an adjustable stop and stays at 90 degrees exactly. I can easily move it to whatever angle down to 45 degrees. ...

Darned good fer the money.

Darned good fer the money.

This is my first review so please bear with me. I purchased this saw new back in Dec. and have been using it fairly extensively ever since. It was a toss up between this and the Laguna LTS 220 and I picked this as it is 2 hp compared to the 1.75 and it was $100 cheaper (that paid for the mobile base). It” a fairly high tool with a table height of 36” adding a mobile base brought it to 36 3/4”. As I’m a bit of a short a$$ it means a bit of leaning way over to ...

New Saw

New Saw

02-14-2013 01:44 PM by canoe911 | 17 comments »

Let me start by saying that I only got this saw three days ago. I also had to buy it without looking at a demo model in a showroom as I have none near my home. And my last tablesaw was the Skil 10” Tablesaw w/Stand #3310. Which while worked for me for some time had reached a point that I could not get anything more from it. First I will speak of the Laguna sales department. I would give them 5 as well. I chatted online with someone and when I asked him some questions that he was not ...

Love my cabinet saw!

Love my cabinet saw!

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...
