Topic tags/keywords: tool gloat grizzly table saw g1023 forrest wwii

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!

Wow, wow, wow….that deal just got a whole lot better! I’d say you got more than $1800 worth of stuff for your 6.25 bills. Give that Forrest a good cleaning. Congrats!

Thanks all!

Scott, I figured about the same based on the Woodhaven miter gauge and the WWII blade! I will definitely be giving it a good cleaning! I don’t think it has been used that much, you can still see the sharpie line he drew on it when adjusting the table!

Russell, he said he couldn’t use the dado set anymore so it didn’t have much value to him. I was willing to pay about $50-$75 for it, but had to pick up my jaw when he said $25!

sandpaper works well. Just like ur sanding wood. make sure u are even and dont stay in one spot. We often times have to polish seal surfaces at work on large parts that wont fit on a grinder and use the good old sandpaper. If its really bad work your way up in grits but to me it doesnt seem that bad so start high. We sand dry and with alcohol. The alcohol is for me not the work….. lol jk but after sanding a piece to a mirror finish i sure do need a drink to forget the rubber arms going on.
