Topic tags/keywords: table saw fence grizzly 771 g0771

I am looking to upgrade my table saw and I am thinking of getting the grizzly G0771. The only thing stopping me is the fence. I have a delta 36-t30 t2 on my table saw today. Does anyone know if it will bolt up the the 771?

Thanks,

Chad

I doubt that it’s a direct bolt up, but it’d be a worthwhile upgrade IMO. Go with as many of the stock holes that line up as you can, then drill the cast iron for more holes as necessary…CI drills pretty nicely with sharp bits (start with a small pilot hole). You may not need all the available holes to hold it….often 4 or 5 is plenty.

I was hoping that it would work out. If I am going to buy something new and then have to modify it I might as well buy something used :). But man, has craigslist been crazy. There are not many actual “deals” to be found. I just saw a powermatic 50 (not 53 or 54) listed for $500 and it sold at that. It was almost 20 years old and needed new blades.

I am now leaning towards either getting the 715P or the 1023. If I get the 715 I can also get a jointer and planer, where if I get the 1023 I am only going to be able to fit a planer, maybe, into the budget.

The G1023RL is a more substantial saw than the G0715P for sure, but it won’t increase your woodworking capability like a TS + jointer and/or planer will. Executive decision time!

Put an Incra LS-III on it, it’ll mount to anything. The G0715P is a great entry level cabinet saw. Mine is a precision cutter with the Incra accessories.

(there is a Grizzly G0715P under there somewhere)

Haha, that is what I was thinking. I have decided to get the 771, and if my delta fence does not fit I will sell it and get a shop fox classic. But I am pretty sure they delta fence will fit.

Thanks

The Delta fence is a Biesemeyer with the Delta name slapped on it (since Delta bought Biesemeyer). The older manuals (pre-purchase) gave instructions for mounting on both Delta and non-Delta machines. Not sure if the newer ones do, but the fence will bolt to just about anything that has a table top :)

Yeah, I know that it should fit, but I “might” need to drill a new whole. I do really like the fence on my crappy saw. It always locks straight. I had to create a custom mounting bracket using 3/4” oak to get it on my very old delta 9” contractor saw.

You could alternatively drill the needed hole in the fence rail rather than the saw table.

Well, I went a completely different route. Found a very nice Delta 36-715 on craigslist with a nice out feed table, unfenced, and delta sliding miter gauge. The saw was in amazing condition and was only 6 years old. It does have a table mounted trunnion but the owner had gotten it to amazing alignment. Was less than .001 off of straight from front to back of the blade. He was upgrading to a PM2000, lucky guy. Also picked up a PM54A today. I probably paid a little too much for it, but if I ever want to upgrade I know it will still be worth something. It was very lightly used to true up cabinet edges. Ran beautifully and was flat as could be. Now that I have all these new tools I should start a thread for putting my small workshop together. Will be fitting all this equipment in a 10×12 area. I will post some pics later of the new tools.

Have your say...
