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. ...

R4512 - 3 out of 3 at my HD had alignment problems

R4512 - 3 out of 3 at my HD had alignment problems

04-09-2013 01:50 PM by Craftsman70 | 31 comments »

This is not a full and extensive review, because I only had my R4512 for a couple of days. I’m doing this review for others who were in the situation I was. I was looking for a newer saw in the $500 price range and really wanted the R4512. I wanted to love the saw. I looked past the negative reviews believing the alignment/trunnion issues were only on earlier models and had been addressed. Opening the box, it all looked good. The wheels and lift system are the best. I liked...

Grizzly G0690 even with problems still good value

Grizzly G0690 even with problems still good value

04-05-2013 04:49 AM by pjones46 | 46 comments »

Based on many of the reviews I have read, the Grizzly G0690 Cabinet saw was the best bang for the buck. As there have been many reviews given I will only add a few comments to those that I have read. The saw arrived without a ding, dent or missing part and went together well. I was very disappointed with wiring as it appeared to be only 14 gauge wire with a 220 plug configuration I had never seen. I had my electrician rewire it completely with 12 gauge wire and use a more conventional tw...

Powermatic PM2000 - Assembly and setup review

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

02-21-2013 05:28 AM by Dustin | 32 comments »

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 ...
