HI I’M THINKING ABOUT GETTING A GRIZZLY G0715P I HAVE AN OLD 113. CRAFTSMAN NOW .
I CALLED GRIZZLY ABOUT BLADE DRIFT TEC TOLD ME WHEN SAW WAS FIRST OUT HAD PROBLEM BUT HE HAD NOT HEARD OF ANYTHING IN A LONG TIME.
HAS ANYONE HEARD OF ANYTHING MORE ON THIS LATELY I FEEL THAT THIS WOULD BE MY ONLY SHOT AT GETTING A BETTER SAW THAN WHAT I HAVE NOW .
SO TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK I SHOULD DO BUY OR PASS AND WHAT YOU SUGGEST I GET IN SAME PRICE RANGE SO DO YOU ALL THINK THE GRIZZLY G0715P WOULD BE A GOOD SAW
THANKS DUANE

I just picked one up about three weeks ago. Heavy unit, solid build, very nice include fence but I think the miter gauge could use some help. 2 HP, 220V motor, easy to setup with a second person to help on the wings. Ripped a couple of 2×4’s with the included blade and it was ok, swapped out with a Freud Diablo and it runs like a champ. Built a sled and used William Ng’s 5 cut method to test and very accurate. I checked and all my cuts were very true and clean. I will be cutting some quarter sawn white oak this weekend after I joint and plane it for some greene and greene inspired furniture so this will be a good test. I wouldn’t hesitate to get the same saw again.

I haven’t read of any recent issues. It reviewed well in Wood Mag’s most recent hybrid comparison.

My brother has one and likes it. He didn’t say anything about the blade drift being a problem.
I am going to go check it out when I can make it over to his place

thanks for your input I have a dubby sled that I will use on new saw and I like the sled a lot easy to use is great for picture frames if you want to make a 10 sided frame just move it to the no. 10 and cut.
and I just got a drum sander that attaches to your radial arm saw made by jet works good got from cl list
has anyone heard of one or have one still they don’t make it anymore its a 22” open end so could sand a 44” piece .

Have your say...
