I’ve recently acquired a G1022Z and am trying to determine whether it warrants the price I paid for it ($120) or if I should flip it and skip the used market and order directly from the big bear. My three main issues are:
(2) The fence sucks. It’s style is like the Shop Fox Original fence, slides on the circular rails, and is never parallel to anything.
(3) I can’t get the cast iron wings to lay parallel to the tabletop. I can match up the inside edges fairly well, but getting the outside tips to be level w/ the rest of the table has proven to be more taxing than I was hoping for.
(3) is something I’m willing to live with given the price I paid for the saw, but I’m expecting that (1) and (2) will cause more emotional & financial hardships (and scraps) down the road. Does anyone have any pointers of where I should look to address (1)? If the consensus is that (1) is futile, then I’ll probably flip the saw from whence it came from (yay Craigslist!) and just buy direct from Grizzly and get something with a riving knife and a decent fence. If I can fix 1, then I’ll stick with the saw and move on to upgrading the fence while I save up for the financial & political capital for a SS.
