Topic tags/keywords: question tip alignment

Hey all, just joined for the first time after reading on here for some time now. After much research and deliberation I finally decided to order the Grizzly G1023RL (excitement ensued). Shipping was quick, got it in the garage and on the base easy enough, but when I started looking through the insert slot I noticed that the arbor and everything internal looked misaligned. I maxed out the adjustment on the table so I removed the table and adjusted the trunnions, which wre quickly maxed out. I believe that I have maxed out eh adjustability of the saw and I can’t even bring a blade up through the hole without hitting the front left plate tab. Please someone tell me that I’m missing something easy and I don’t have to send this thing back. It seems as though the whole mounted part needs to be pushed to the right but that isn’t even possible because the bevel adjustment is attached to the cabinet which prevents it from moving to the right. Any insight would be most appreciated!

Thank you

I think my first call would be to Griz CS. I’ve had nothing but good results from them, and I’m sure if the saw needs replaced (unlikely, but you never know) they will be on top of things.

I do not own one, but my first suggestion, yes it would be to call Griz. but if you can not resolve the problem, then my second suggestion would be to “remove the top”/reset your trunnion to center of adjustments/ place the top back on and align it to the blade/ tighten top, then try your alignment readings again, it is not guaranteed that the top is in the right location, when you got the saw.

Just to cover the basics, is the blade set at set at 90°? If so and it’s still not right, I’d call Griz before going further.
