This morning a finally pulled the trigger and ordered my new Grizzly G0691 table saw. As always, I was doing research and reviews up until the last second. When I came across this question last night on another forum.
It is rather long, but in a nut shell, he is thinking between a new Grizzly G0690 and a Laguna 10” cabinet saw. He made the statement that the saw looked identical except for a few small things, but that he was going with the Laguna because it just looked better.
A guy claiming to be a Grizzly rep (Over 400 post on that forum, no one called him out as a fake) and said that the two saw were identical, made in the same factory, with the same parts. Difference was color, a few shiny bells and whistles on the Laguna, Grizzlys way better c/s, and a price at about half of the Laguna’s.
The guy then said he had been trying to get Laguna to send him a free DVD for over a month and had not gotten one yet. But just because of a rep answering him on a forum, he decided to go with the Grizzly.
Has anyone heard of this before, that Grizzly and Laguna cabinet saws were the same saw, made in the same factory ? I know MANY tools are made in the same factory and sold under different names, but if this one is true…wow, what a difference in price for the same tool just under a different name.
NOT knocking Laguna tools, just asking if anyone else has ever heard this before.
