Grizzly G0771 Comprehensive Guide

Grizzly G0771 Comprehensive Guide

01-11-2016 08:50 PM by ThomasLightle | 3 comments »

I got my Grizzly G0771 Table Saw in May 2015 and have been documenting my journey with it on YouTube ever since. If you are interested in what this saw has to offer, check out my videos below: UnboxingUnboxing of my new Grizzly G0771 table saw. This is a huge upgrade for my shop. Up until this point I have been using a portable Craftsman table saw that was adequate for construction, but lacking many features of even the most basic contractor saws, let alone hybrid saws such as this one. ...

Ceiling Shop Lights

Ceiling Shop Lights

01-11-2016 12:09 AM by Roger | 36 comments »

I’ve been picking a few of these up from Rural King for the past few months, because they were originally 40 bux, and they’ll be on sale until the 23rd of this month, Jan, 2016, for 20bux. A “few” amounts to 24, which is a bunch o greenbacks, but, like I said, I’ve been getting them a little at a time. Anyhoo, I know these pictures will not do justice of how fricking bright these units are. While in the store, Rural King, they had them on an endcap with 2 of t...

DON'T BUY THIS

DON'T BUY THIS

01-10-2016 04:44 PM by AllIsWellInNJ | 4 comments »

DON’T BUY THIS PRODUCT. So bad that I think Arrow took it off the market. Will definitely NOT drive any length nail into pine (e.g. house trim) and certainly not into hardwoods (oak, etc.) Tried 2 of them… same result. Guy at Lowes says they got mostly returns. Check out youtube.com and other places to be sure.

3.5 HP Pennstate DC upgrade.

3.5 HP Pennstate DC upgrade.

01-08-2016 04:01 PM by mike1950 | 8 comments »

Have not been around for a while- Life and a shop remodel has stopped woodworking for a while. Getting close to being fully operational again. Needed a DC upgrade so I purchased this unit slightly used. Most pipe and fittings had not been installed and package had most of what I needed. Also included -switched gates- so when gate is opened DC is turned on. I have not wired gates yet nor finished ductwork-waiting on a few parts- but what I have finished I do like. Equipped with muffler DC is n...

1st. Opinion of grizzly 4 jaw chuck H6267 vicmark (vm100 copy)

1st. Opinion of grizzly 4 jaw chuck H6267 vicmark (vm100 copy)

01-07-2016 08:07 PM by bigJohninvegas | 5 comments »

So this is my early opinion of this grizzly chuck. Mine is the H6267 and has the 1 1/4”X 8tpi adapter included.This chuck is sold under several different part numbers, based on what adapter you need.I had read that it was a close enough copy to the vicmarc vm100, and that the vicmarc jaws would fit it.This grizzly chuck is about half the cost of the vicmarc at $120.00. I have used the chuck 4 or 5 times now with the dove tail jaws that came with it.The chuck does feel a little clunk...

My favorite Reader Safety Glasses so Far

My favorite Reader Safety Glasses so Far

01-07-2016 04:57 PM by CharlesA | 6 comments »

I’ve been surprised at how much I dislike the fit of most safety glasses. Maybe I have an odd head/nose, but most fit oddly and are not comfortable for long periods of time. One complication is that I require readers lenses. I only require 2.0 or 2.5, but i prefer using 3.0 because I figure if I’m going to have some magnification, I might as well really have some benefit from it. Up to this point, my favorite safety glasses have been 3M Tekk safety glasses, but I couldn̵...

CV 1800 Bundle Review

CV 1800 Bundle Review

01-05-2016 05:24 AM by JBrow | 15 comments »

My Requirements and Purchase Decision. I used a ½ hp dust collector with an awful filter bag for about 10 years before I outfitted it with a shop made cyclone from the “ShopNotes” design in 1998. I used that machine up until August 2015, when I purchased the Clearvue CV 1800 cyclone bundle. It was a shop upgrade long overdue, but probably like many woodworkers, I would rather spend money on wood cutting tools than on a vacuum cleaner. My decision to upgrade dust collection occurred earl...

So far I am very impressed

So far I am very impressed

01-05-2016 03:58 AM by rodg | 7 comments »

I will have to come back after I get some time using this band saw so please consider this as a first impression review. I took receipt of the saw this afternoon so I have only performed the un-boxing/assembly and did a few test cuts in maple. The packaging was top notch on-par with the packaging used by SawStop. Assembly was quick and easy with help from my 10 year old daughter, all said and done took maybe 2 hours to assemble with her help and us taking our time so I could explain things...

I received this from my wife for Christmas. (Good wife huh?)It was ordered from Amazon.com and came via OnTrac in great condition.So far I am very pleased with the performance.I have crosscut and ripped several feet of Maple & Birch and I have no complaints.Very minimal burning when ripping. (It’s time to check my fence alignment too)Cross cuts in my sled were very clean.This is the best quality blade I have ever used. I should have bought one sooner.I replaced an older Freud Com...
