Lightweight, Compact Saw

I wanted a miter saw for trim work, flooring and woodworking projects, but I didn’t want to get a 10” for a few reasons. First is the size, I don’t have the space for one. Second is the weight and third is the cost. I was able to get this saw at Home Depot for $130 and for the small size it will be able to cut nearly anything I will need it for: Maximum crosscut dimensions: 90° – 1-1/2 in. x 10 in.; 45° – 1-1/2 in. x 6 in.Sliding head provides maximum cap...

Surprisingly Simple

Surprisingly Simple

This style of freestanding template jig has been around for a long time, but this one focuses on box joints. You can make 1/2” or 3/4” box joints, and the kit comes with just about everything you need. Just add an MDF fence, and you’re off to the races. Chuck the included router bit in your router, and install the eBush, then rout your first workpiece. Then flip the little green tab and rout the mating workpiece. The offset is automatic! I started with the eBush se...

Happy, after some difficulties

Happy, after some difficulties

Had some difficulty obtaining the saw from UPS freight, Grizzly’s chosen freight provider, at least in my area. UPS could not deliver because:Day 1: I could not be home from 7:30 to 6:00 waiting for delivery, I had to be out for 3 hours that day.Day 2. It was snowingDay 3. It might snowDay 4. Tailgate brokenDay 5. Turbos on truck brokenFinally the saw was delivered. As difficult as UPS freight is to deal with their drivers are TERRIFIC. I gave the driver a hefty tip for rolling it into the...

Kreg Drawer Slide Jig

Kreg Drawer Slide Jig

05-01-2018 12:16 PM by scribble | 0 comments »

I finally got around to using these after they sat in my workbench for several months. I will say they do a good job as long as everything is straight to begin with. I built a small drill press rolling cabinet and used it to install my drawer slides. When using with a face frame it helps for the face frame stiles to be taller than 3/4” so the clamps have more meat to grab a hold of. I think the spot that these shine the best is in mounting the drawer to the slides by supporting the ...

Finally went and done it

Finally went and done it

04-30-2018 11:31 PM by skiler | 9 comments »

I finally went and done it. My R4512 finally stopped making good cuts so I got a Grizzly. I am SOOOOOOO impressed with this saw. Came with out a scratch on it. Easy to set up (with help). It was aligned right out of the box. The hardest part was getting it to my shop. It weighs 300 lbs in the box. Got an appliance dolly and a great big friend to help me move it. Made several cuts with it today. They were perfect. If you are thinking about an up grade, this is a really good deal.

2 out of 3 IS bad!! - I'm an idiot!!

Well,I got burned by a hidden screw in a piece of wood I was cutting on my Grizzly 0513ANV band saw, It was the blade that came with the saw. Not a huge loss, but with no blade, I decided to order 3 blades from Sawblades.com. I ordered them Tuesday evening and received them on Thursday afternoon. QUICK Shipping!!! I went to resaw some African Blackwood for Knife scales for a friend. I had ordered Q201 3/4” 3 Tpi for resawing. I pulled it out of the box and guess what?? I...

Wow what a bummer

Wow what a bummer

04-26-2018 01:15 PM by chris6453 | 8 comments »

I waited patiently for my YAS slab master to arrive all was well . It arrived on schedule and in great shape . Once assembled we realized that the machine was wired for AUS-EURo 415v 3 phase . Once I realized that the options I had were a 3500.00 transformer or a new motor for 1400.00 I choose the later . I placed emails to YAS and the only response I have gotten to date after 12 emails is ” I will review and get back to you” Now 6 weeks later I can’t even get a returned ca...

Dust Cobra Dust Extractor, 17 Gal

Dust Cobra Dust Extractor, 17 Gal

04-25-2018 01:52 AM by JBrow | 2 comments »

Purchase. The 17 gallon Oneida Dust Cobra Dust Extractor along with the optional 2.5” x 25’ CleanShop Vacuum Hose Kit replaced a 1980s Craftsman Shop Vac outfitted with Oneida’s Dust Duty. The Craftsman was showing signs of wear. The Craftsman began making noise when shut off, probably dry bearings. Shop vacs and dust extractors were considered, but the Dust Cobra seemed to offer more. It is designed for a 2-1/2” hose. An Industrial Dust Cobra, which includes a drum dolly...

Performance beyond it's price

Performance beyond it's price

So I’ve had this saw a few months now and had time to make a number of different cuts with it. I picked this up at Home Depot pretty much paid $150 net for it as I had a few other items and used the $20 off $200 Pro coupon. I’ve cut a pretty good bit of ply, some hardwood and a bunch of 2x and cedar pickets when I replaced some of my fence. Overall, I’ve been impressed with the saw and the quality. Though I will say that the last circular saw I bought was a Skil saw ba...

Super Fence Unboxing and Assembly

Super Fence Unboxing and Assembly

04-21-2018 01:12 PM by MagicalMichael | 4 comments »

This review can only address the unboxing and assembly because the fence has gone onto a not quite finished bench and so hasn’t been used yet. The unit is very solidly made, and I feel confident I will like using it. However when I first unboxed it I considered returning it to Woodcraft. Instead of a router fence I had a collection of 15+ parts and what looked like maybe a hundred assorted, unidentified nuts, bolts and washers. My first look at the instruction manual suggested tha...
