Recently got this sander from Grizzly, I realize that it is a sander that has various brand names attached to it so shop around and get your best deal. Prior to this I was using my drill press with different sized drums, there is no comparison between the two. Like anything you can spend as much or as little as you wish. This model more than meets my needs. I built a stand on wheels to move it around on and put a large drawer to hold all my sanding drums etc. etc. The sander came with 80 Grit...

HF Gerson Disposable Respirator - cheaper than cartridges

HF Gerson Disposable Respirator - cheaper than cartridges

03-26-2017 02:25 PM by Tennessee | 5 comments »

I have had numerous respirators over the years, with various cartridges, and a couple things have always bothered me about most.First, many of them don’t allow me to wear glasses properly, since the nose piece sticks up too high, causing my glasses to sit wrong and make my eyesight off.Second, those doggone elastic straps always, always get stretched out and hard, and now that most have gone to the cheap plastic hooks, the problem is worse. Sealing with these stretched out is almost imp...

The most useful accessory in my shop

The most useful accessory in my shop

03-26-2017 01:30 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

I’ve had a Wixey saw fence digital readout for many years. I bought one when they first came out and recently had to replace the readout unit as mine finally quit working. During the short period of time I was without it, while waiting for the replacement to arrive, I realized how much I rely on this little miracle gadget. Pricing is reasonable too – $120 for a complete set up and $28 for a replacement readout. For those of you that don’t have one, the readout slides ...

Sweet little router.

Sweet little router.

03-25-2017 03:25 PM by Lumberpunk | 1 comment »

Bought this from the Home Hardware in Nelson for less than the Amazon price! Never happens. Anyways the router. I have had it for about a week and have used it exclusively on hard maple to tune some rabbets and route a long mortise for a piano hinge. First impressions the case seems well made for a tool case, not sure about job site longevity but time will tell. All the parts are packed in foam inside the case although the bearing guide space is too small. Taking the router out of the case...

Off to a rocky start S&H

Off to a rocky start S&H

03-24-2017 01:54 PM by meaznet | 14 comments »

First of all, I love this machine. It’s been great, had it since Christmas. But it didn’t start off that way. I’ve had a few problems right from the start. As you can see from the first picture it’s a beautiful saw, just doesn’t have the Fence installed. Thats because it was shipped with the fence for a G0771. Worked with Grizzly support and let them know of the shipping mishap and they took care of it without a problem. I also found a few other problems; ...

Great Table even better customer service!!!

Great Table even better customer service!!!

03-22-2017 08:00 PM by Bobmedic | 18 comments »

A couple weeks ago, I ordered a Kreg Mobile Project Center on the internet. When it arrived, I opened it to find that it had been damaged due to it being assembled incorrectly. I called Kreg customer support and after a brief explanation of what had happened, they had a new table on its way to me. When the second table arrived, I noticed that it had been damaged during shipping. I sent an email to Kreg customer support explaining what had happened and what I thought the cause of it was. A few...

Amazingly easy, accurate guide rail square.

Amazingly easy, accurate guide rail square.

03-21-2017 09:00 PM by ihadmail | 12 comments »

First off, I was not in any way compensated or solicited for this review. I purchased this product at full retail price from the manufacturers website. I saw a review here on LJ for the TSO Products GRS-16, and I immediately knew I had to have one. I have been relying on very careful measurements on both ends of the cut and extremely careful placement of the rail for my Makita track saw. Then I measure from the back of the rail to the edge of the sheet on both ends and make adjustments....

Grizzly T27417 Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Part 2

Grizzly T27417 Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Part 2

03-21-2017 11:57 AM by EEngineer | 9 comments »

Since the two are so similar, it is inevitable that there will be comparisons between the Ridgid EB4424 and the Grizzly T27417. But the two products are quite different. Some of the most obvious differences were covered in the first part of this review. The table on the Grizzly unit is smaller and the whole package has a much smaller footprint (16 1/2” X 18 1/2” as opposed to the Ridgid’s 19 1/4” X 23 1/2”). Because of this, I think the Ridgid on-board storage is better organized – there ...

Grizzly T27417 Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Part 1

I have wanted a spindle sander in my shop for some time now. For the last year or two, I had my eye on the Ridgid EB4424 belt/spindle sander but reviews just haven’t been kind to this product. Yes, there are many magazine reviews praising this product and positive reviews by satisfied users but there are also lots and lots of sad tales (including right here on LJ here and here ) that seemed to point to severe quality control issues. In addition, like many other companies, it seems that Ri...
