We were truly blessed with the purchase of the 3 hp grizzly cabinet saw. I sort of fell into the saw and was not seeking a table saw. We have a 3 hp unisaw, a 3 hp PM 66 (this saw is not in service yet), and a TS3650 Ridgid (1.5 hp).
So I seen the 3 hp grizzly on CL for 300.00, but I totally ignored it because we have the 3 table saws already. A previous employee of mine called me just a few minutes later and asked if his new boss can buy my TS3650 from me. The fella stated they had a TS on the construction site but broke down on them and they needed a good dependable saw. So in short, I made contact with the fella that had the grizzly and he stated one other person expressed interest at that time but he told me the first to come and get it will load it up.
So in the past couple days I managed to sell my TS3650 for 250.00 and bought the Grizzly for 300.00.
The deal details were as follows: The seller wanted 300 for the TS and stock fence, or he had a 52” Beis and outfeed table he wanted to combine together for 600.00. I opted to just get the saw and stock fence for 300.00.
So, the stock fence is very bad. I don’t like it. In fact, I actually installed the 80s model pipe fence that came with my older model PM66.
I am not sure of the model number. The saw is in very good condition but I assume it is one of the older models. It is right tilt. It was in a one man shop. The owner told me he upgraded the arbor bearings and installed the link belts. So the saw spins nice and just hums.
Hopefully I can get the PM66 in service (I need to buy a single phase motor) then we will be set nice. I am excited about this deal as it cost me approximately 68.00 to upgrade.
Anyone know of any good deals on fences? I will probably keep the older model pipe fence on the grizzly but when I get the PM66 up and running I will need to get a new fence for the Powermatic.
