I bought a used Grizzly table saw yesterday, and I had a few questions about it. I am hoping you can help me out:
1) I cannot find a model number on this saw. Can anyone identify which saw this is? Here’s a photo:
I does have a 3 HP 220v motor, and it appears to be made in Taiwan. My best guess is that it is a 1023, but was hoping someone could confirm that.
2) The on/off switch shown in the picture does not work reliably. When pushing the on button, most of the time it will not start. I removed the switch from the saw to get a better look. I noticed if I take the switch and tap it (the whole switch box) on the table top, the saw will start! Pretty scary how this thing starts when you don’t expect it to. So, I think I have to replace this switch: Can I just go with a normal switch instead of the magnetic style switch?
3) I noticed the motor is not that well secured, and the saw does have some vibration when running. I looked at how the motor was mounted, and I noticed the bolt secures the motor on only one side. Here’s a photo of the outside on the bolt:
And a photo of the inside:
Should there be a bolt on the inside for that mount?
Thanks for your help!
