Topic tags/keywords: g1023

Ive cashed in my bottles and cans and stashed away my nickels to buy a bear. Managed to wrestle that bear in and back out of the truck and soon enough itll be in the shop making dust.

If ya havent figured it out yet i purchased a 1997 Grizzly 3HP G1023 table saw including a regular, dado, and zero clearance throat plates as well as anti kick back rollers. I got myself a real tablesaw and i couldnt be happier.

Thanks Nate … there’s no pic of the fence but it came with a bear trap … well anti kick back rollers, which makes me feel a lot better using a saw with this much juice.

Great deal…It sure looks to be in excellent shape being that it is 15 years old. The previous owner must have taken good care of it or hardly used it much.

So, how many truck loads of cans? I’m working on my second big bag. Sure takes a lot of crushed cans to fill a big contractor’s bag…

Good buy.

Be Careful!
