Good afternoon folks,
I’m Troy and I am new to the sight and haven’t worked with wood for 30 years or so. I need some advice. I am looking at an older grizzly table saw model 10 22 I think, it could be a 20 or 24 I don’t remember. The cast iron top is in great condition and so is the cabinet. It can be wired for 120 or 220. It runs well and the seller says it produces between 1 1/2 – 2 hp. He is asking 400.00. Is this a good deal? Are parts avail. should they be needed ? Thanks in advance for your response.

TJ

Grizzly offered several versions of the G1022. The G1022SM was very basic, with steel wings, a cheap fence, and no blade height lock….it sold new for ~ $300-$325 plus s/h IIRC. At the other end, the G1022ProZ had solid cast wings and a Shop Fox Classic fence, and I believe it had the bigger motor. The version Kevin linked to had grated cast wings and a different leg set with a basic fence.

$400 for a used saw of this type is pretty steep even if it’s got solid cast wings and the SF Classic fence. If it’s the G1022SM, it’s worth ~ $125-$200 used in good shape. If it’s the G1022ProZ it might be worth ~ $300-$350 if in great shape. Note the differences in the fence and wings below. At the right price, they’re all capable of being setup to do a good job, but unless it’s the model with the Shop Fox Classic (Biesemeyer clone) fence, it’s not worth anywhere neear $400 IMHO. $400 goes along way toward a new Ridgid R4512 or Cman 21833 with a riving knife, modern design, and a warranty….a 20% off Harbor Freight coupon accepted by Home Depot, can put the R4512 well below $500. A good used saw can offer a great bang for the buck at the right price, but when used prices approach new, it makes sense to at least ponder the pros and cons of each.

Here’s the 1022SM:

Here’s the ProZ:

Here’s a look at 4 different versions:

knotscot, Thanks for a great reply! The saw looks like the 1022z. It does have the cast iron extensions, The standard fence, two miter gauges, a moulding blade that has never been used and a dado blade inc. I have talked to the seller and we got to 350.00. There is not a blade guard and the only insert is a dado insert. I will have to purchase a close tol. insert? Thanks Again, TJ

I’d pass unless that’s absolutely the best your area has to offer for $350….still pretty steep IMHO and approaches what they paid. Even a nice $100 miter gauge doesn’t add $100 to the value of the package. Lack of a blade guard drops the price $25-$50. $250 would be a reasonable deal for both parties, and would still be on the high side of what it’s worth IMO….others may disagree, but that’s where I’m at.
