I’ve been looking to replace my cheap, delta bench saw for quite some time. Each time I found a viable candidate via Craigslist I was beaten to the punch. So I then settled to buying new and had my heart set on the Grizzly G0715P Hybrid. The 3 HP variants were just too expensive for my occasional hobbyist use. But then I found out about a used Grizzly G1023SL. It took about a week to get a hold of the gentlemen selling the saw and determine if it was worth the 80 mile drive. Well, I think it was! He told me that the saw came with all the original accessories as well as a mobile base for $600. He is planning on moving and doesn’t want to try and move the saw. So today I made the trip to take a look and got an even better deal than I hoped for!
So here is the saw all taken apart, ready for a cleaning in my garage.
The top needs a little work. Feel free to give me some advice on the best way to clean it up. I used some mineral spirits and a scotch brite pad, but there are still some spots. These are before pics.
As it turns out, the saw didn’t have all the original accessories. He didn’t have the original miter gauge. Instead I got these!
And he had a bunch of throat plates already made up and a couple of push sticks.
While taking apart the saw I noticed the blade wasn’t the original blade. Instead it was this!
I also asked him about a dado set he was selling. Originally he told me it was a 6” so I wasn’t really interested as I intend to use a sled and don’t want to be too limited in depth. But while I was there I figured I would check it out. Turns out it was an 8”! I asked him how much he wanted for it, $25!!!
So here she is after getting a little cleaning and some alignment.
Needless to say I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchase! Now to get my 220V line installed so I can use it!
