Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw

I swear a few weeks ago I was looking at Grizzly tablesaws and the G0690 was around $1350. Now it’s gone up several hundred at with shipping it will cost $1700+

Does anyone know if their stuff goes on sale? And if so, when (like what time(s) during the year?) I know the cost of raw materials just went up in China… is this a reflection of that or a response to China’s fears about our new president and potential tariffs??

Historically, every time a new law man comes to town, people temporarily freak out. markets do too. Either give it a few months and see what happens or continue looking in your local used market. Good luck!

Also historically: Grizzly has random 10% off coupons. Ive found if you buy something from them, they are a little more frequent with their generosity. But my memory isn’t very good.

Given that most (if not all) of Grizzly’s machines are manufactured in Taiwan. And since the ‘new law man’ has wagged his member at China and recognized Taiwan as sovereign, the future is up in the air. It would not take much action from China or the “new law man” to totally put the kibosh on trade with that region…so yeah…I’d expect pricing to fluctuate wildly in many areas over the next few months.

When they pass executive actions on NAFTA, I would expect the same kind of thing at your local grocery store. The “new law man” doesn’t have a clue how much of our produce comes from south of the border. That’s why the angries can scream and yell about globalization out of one side of their mouth, while shoving fresh guacamole in January through the other side of their mouths.

Maybe it was just on sale before. They just came out with a new catalog so it might just be their annual pricing actions timed with that.

The less conspiracy theory is that grizzly has frequently adjusted their prices at the beginning if each year. I had magazines and catalogs at home with Grizzly ads from 2015 and 2016 saying “last chance to get 201x prices”.

Some years they move more than others.

They have sales on various things a few times per year. Check their website monthly.

They usually increase prices in January every year. Just like Festool and many others.

they have to raise the prices so they can have a sale later in the year.

Cabela’s—- Bass Pro Shop—- Best Buy—- Target are famous for this.

their sale price is the regular price it was a couple months ago

I bought my G0690 about 20 months ago and the price back then was $1550 plus shipping. I had the 10% coupon so it was a bit less than that after the discount. It’s a great saw and I would buy it again.

yhe widow of a member of our turning club had 1000$ worth of gift certificates to Grizzly that she wanted to sell. she said they were okay with that and would accept them. She was asking 85% of the value which is probably negotiable. Send me a pm if interested and verify with Griz as to their acceptance.
No interest to me just passing this along.

Actually quite a few are built in China, maybe 50% of the lower priced machines discussed and bought by members of hobby forums, including the G0690 mentioned by the OP.

Yup, and I mentioned China in the very next sentence.

^ This.

As a Shop Fox dealer, we get the new prices first of the year and then they pretty much try to hold those prices until the next year. A lot of other manufacturers I buy from adjust prices at the same time. I’m sure it has to do with negotiating with the factories, but don’t deal with that end of business so could be mistaken. Anyhow, it’s pretty normal to see pricing change in January.
