I’m going to retire my old green Jet contractors saw this summer.
I looked at the various “hybrids”, and cabinet saws. I think I’ll pay the little bit extra, and get a 3HP cabinet saw.
Being an old retired guy on a limited budget, Powermatic, Uni-saw, and Saw-stop are out of my price range.
I thought about getting used. But I’d like to have a “riving knife”, and also not have to mess with refurbishing a used saw.
I’ve kinda decided on a Grizzly. Either a G 1023, or the G 0690.
I looked at the reviews for both saws. They’re both reviewed about equally I would appreciate some help deciding between the two.
I notice the 1032 is made in Taiwan, while the 0690 is made in China.
The 1023 is driven by a poly v serpentine belt, the 0690 has a triple v-belt drive.
I’m leaning towards the 1023, due to being made in Taiwan, and the Shop Fox fence.
I hope for help making my decision.
