I have recently purchased a used Grizzly G1023 that with the help of the Grizzly customer support and tech help figured to be around a 1993 G1023. no Serial number plate on it.

Went to purchase a new blade and have an issue with fit. The older 5/8 arbor blade that it came with fits fine but I tried one I had for my slide miter and it is snug on the threads and will not mount on the collar that I have a orange arrow pointing at. Same with new Diablo 5/8 arbor blade. any ideas as to why??? Manual not much help but if anyone has pic’s of same saw that I can reference to see if it has been replace or what, I would appreciate. Or suggestions!

Measure with a calliper to verify it’s diameter. Probably just machined to a closer tolerance than your other machine, or could possibly have a burr or mushroomed bit on it. The O.D. of the threads should be identical to the shoulder.

I think I might see a bit of a burr that has formed there, I would take a small fine file and or a small sharpening stone and smooth that edge carefully.

No Burr might just be a piece of dust but out side diameter measure 15.8 mm and inside on hole of blade measures 15.8 mm. With that said, you would need a press to get it on there. Have tried 2 different brand blades a Diablo and a Bosch with same result I assume the Makita blade that originally came with my slide miter may just be worn and is very tight but can be put on with a little pressure around hole. My thought is to run some polishing sand paper maybe 800 up to a 1500 grit on the arbor and see if I can pull off a fraction. also figure I will have to have machine running to get whatever comes off even all the way around.

Thoughts?

Not specific to your problem, but something similar to what Matthias did to true up the arbor would work… here is the page over at woodgears:

Fixing the wobble in a table saw arbor

I’d probably use a small flat file and just give it a touchup while spinning.

FYI Took about 5 rounds of a light pressure with fine flat pin file, but got it to were I can push the blade on with a little pressure. Figured better to have it a little tight than go to far. Probably get a little wax and put on to keep rust away and keep it from freezing on but thanks for the wall to bounce off of. Always good to hear someone else say what you might be thinking. Almost like it had a little cone up to the Arbor flange maybe.

Have your say...
