Howdy folks! Just spent a super week in Branson. One day we took the quick jaunt up to Springfield, MO to see the Grizz Store and visit the flagship Bass Proshop.
The Grizz store was really cool (Bass Pro was too). The thing that is striking about the Grizz store is how well laid out and CLEAN it is. I mean you can eat off of nearly every surface in the place. We were there on a Tues AM so it was pretty empty.
They have FREE catalogs for all who come in.
Take home for me:
1. I’d buy a Grizz tool after seeing them upclose. They are priced and well and seem to be a very good value for the quality tool you get.
2. They have one 6 inch jointer that is an exact clone of my Craftsman jointer, with the exception that the Grizz has a built in mobile base, and it rolls very nicely.
3. I have my Craftsman tbale saw on a home made base so it is higher that the saws I saw in the store. That would take some getting used to.
4. The Grizz cab saws are NICE! The 1023 is quite a bit of tool for the price.
5. Their lowest priced table saw $795 had stamped steel wings that did seem very thin, and the lower end 14inch band saw has a very chinzy plastic miter gauge….these were the only two items I saw that were not up to snuff with the rest of their tools.
6. Their heavy duty disk, belt sanders were really nice and had me drooling!
7. EVERY tool was set up PERFECTLY.
8. I bought some scrapers and some DC adapters that I had a hard time finding on line.
9. Bottom line, is Grizz makes some very nice tools overall and competitive prices.
Enjoy the pics!
