Topic tags/keywords: table saw grizzly g1023

Well I got my saw a few weeks ago, thread is here. Finally got it all dialed in, the 220V outlet installed, cleaned up the Forrest WWII blade, and the table got a little resurfacing. Here is a 1” thick piece of oak stair tread (biggest and hardest piece of wood I had laying around). Cut so easily!

I also had some surface rust and stains that I wanted to try and remove. I first started out with some 220 grit on an ROS, but it didn’t seem to do much. The next lowest grit I had was 120. So I tried it out. Worked pretty good, but still didn’t get everything out. I decided I didn’t want to go any further with it so I continued with the 120 over the whole surface, then switched back to 220 to finish it up. Wiped the table down with mineral spirits and gave it a coat of Boeshield T-9, followed by a couple coats of paste wax. I can live with it!

Now to start on a few projects, need some zero clearance inserts, an extension table (with router) for the right side. Might also put one on the left side since I will have some sheet goods to break down the extra support would be nice. Also need to construct an outfeed table. Haven’t decided if it will be a folding table or if I will make a multi-purpose workbench/outfeed/miter station wings project I have been thinking about. Hmmmm….
