I drove through a blinding rainstorm to get into Springfield on Friday night for Saturday, September 17th sale. I got in line at 0415 and surprisingly I was not at the head of the line; instead I was at the twentieth position or so. I came down to purchase a G0715P hybrid saw and would have paid full price if necessary. All prices were knocked down 30-50%, but that wasn’t the end either. The rain storm blew through the north side of the tents, creating topical rust on many of the machines. I bought mine for $399, which was $451 off new. I also picked up a Shop Fox 6” jointer W1745W retailing for $845, but it only cost me $275 due to the aforementioned rust. I then saved another $200 on a dust collector.
Grizzly loads your vehicle or trailer and all you need to do is cover it up and strap it down! I’m going back in June to purchase a new planer and possibly a lathe too. If you haven’t ever been, it’s the Black Friday sale for men; without the fighting, knocking down or offensive behavior.
Now I have to add a new circuit and tune the equipment.
Thanks everyone for the advice on how to tune the saw. I purchased a master plate, but the dial indicator which mounts to the miter slot was unavailable. I’ll get one elsewhere.
