Well, here’s my new table saw, the Grizzly G01023RL. It is a beast! After going nutz with different models, I finally decided on this one. After getting it together, all went well. The 1 3/4” cast iron top is a specimen of fine machining by Grizzly, imo. only one wing needed a few pieces of post-it note thickness to get em perfect. The blade is aligned perfectly to the miter slot, and the ShopFox fence, only need a few slight adjustments. It is cutting supremely with that 3hp motor. I want to thank everyone who gave me some input and thoughts on my purchase. Ya’ll are a gr8 bunch.

I drove myself crazy for the past month looking at table saws and their specs, reviews, and talking to everyone them. So far I am happy happy happy. I’ll do a review down the road a bit after I’ve run some boards through it.

Anyhoo, here’s a few pics. I hope to have some projects put out soon with this baby.

I luv these big wheels on this. They move the massive trunnion without any effort. Very smooth operating. I’m very impressed. Thank you Grizzly.

Just think—now you won,t ever have the fun of planning for a new saw. This thing will last forever. I got the same thing that says SHOPFOX. It is all those great things you can say about a saw. Think I will have a drink for you and your new saw. Enjoy.

Fantastic… I’m a bit jealous. I have a very well made JET saw but no riving knife :o(

This is one of the most important options for a table saw… it should never be an option!

Congrats! Looks great. Hang that stock blade on the wall, and treat yourself and your saw to a nice new aftermarket blade.
