Grizzly G0771 passes the nickel test - 5 replies

With the stock blade and a Harbor Freight mobile base. This is my first table saw and I’m pretty happy so far. The fence locks up square and moves much smoother than I expected with aluminum rails. I can push it with one finger and it slides 3/4 of the way to the other end of the table.

Harbor Freight dust collector impeller wobble - 3 replies

I just got my first dedicated dust collector last night, the cheap HF 2HP unit everyone modifies. I’m expecting this to be a significant upgrade from my shopvac+dust deputy combo, but for $170 my expectations aren’t super high. It makes a little bit of a banging sound when it runs and it looks like the impeller is crooked on the s...

Blade selection for a G0771 - 10 replies

I just assembled my new Grizzly G0771 and I’m a little confused trying to figure out which blade(s) to buy for it. My near term projects will involve cutting 3/4” plywood for cabinets/boxes and ripping dimensional lumber for some mobile bases. I’ll also cut some MDF to make a crosscut sled (need to make a zero clearance insert...

Shortage of good fences - 13 replies

Am I crazy or is there a shortage of decent aftermarket fences? I remember the Delta T2 being around $125 last time I looked (a while back), but it’s over $200 now and I’ve read several people reporting serious quality control issues and no support available from Delta (here and in the borg reviews). The Vega U26 is almost $300. A...

Advice on refacing face frame cabinets - 5 replies

I bought a house with 20 year old builder grade, pre-fab, face frame cabinets. I’d like to remove the center stiles and reface them with slightly wider, simple slab doors that will cover the gap left between the door openings with a small 1/8” reveal between the doors. I don’t believe I’ll be able to cover the reveals on ...

How do you make a Czech Hedgehog joint? - 5 replies

I saw this table on RoomsToGo and I’m trying to figure out how you would make the joint. Any ideas? I’m not sure what the real name of it is, but it reminds me of the Czech Hedgehogs zi Germans laid on the beaches at Normandy. Thanks!Jacob

First dresser, a few questions - 1 reply

I’m just getting into woodworking and I’ll have a cabinet table saw (Grizzly G1023 or G0690 depending on what’s in stock) at my new place in 3-4 weeks. I have a couple hand planes on the way from ebay (Stanley #5 and #7), I am still researching chisels and I’m considering a bandsaw. I made a dryer pedestal for my mom, but...

My first hand plane! - 8 replies

I just won this auction for a Stanley #5, made in USA, for $41 shipped: It looks pretty old to me and the steel is very dark and discolored but there doesn’t appear to be any rust. I still have more research to do. I’m not...

Help with first crosscut jigs for circular saw - 9 replies

Hello! I’ve used circular saws on and off throughout my life when necessary for projects but I’m still a newb and my cuts have always left a lot to be desired. I want to learn to get the most accuracy I can out of my circular saw before investing in a table saw, especially after reading all the poor reviews of most saws under $1000 a...
