After reading reviews and all the great input recieved on LJ’s I have narrowed my table saw search to the following 2 machines. The Steel City 35990C, and the Grizzly G0715P. Both of these TS seem favorable amongst the competitors. Im looking for some input from people who have experience with either of these brands or particular models. Specificaly ease of adjustment…reliability…stock fence…trunions and anything else that might be useful. I do appreciate everyone who has helped me through this process, so to all that have included input…THANK YOU!!

In the short time that I’ve had the Grizzly, I’ve been very happy with it.

I have no experience with either of these models to draw from, but can tell you that the SC has cabinet mounted trunnions, which are inherently easier to reach than table mounted trunnions like those found in the G0715P. I’d bet heavily that the Griz fence is better than the one on the SC.

I have Steel City’s 3 hp cabinet saw and it has been very good for me. I can’t comment on Grizzly.

Have the grizzly go715 since AUG of last year. Set up takes a couple of hours . I have used saw to cut everything from 1/4 inch walnut to 3in thick bubinga and paduak. Love this saw bought the mobile base also if you need to move this saw you are going to need it . Dust collection on this saw works well also saw is hooked up to a 2 hp collector

I haven’t used either saw, though I’ve heard great things about both companies. One thing I will mention is that hybrid saws will always have that limiting factor… Learn from my mistake, and get an older Unisaw. In the price range you’re looking in, you can easily find one in your area on CL or a short drive away. Sorry to be “that guy”. – Rich
