Grizzly 1023SL Noise Issue - 25 replies

I’ve had this saw for 10 years and it has been great to say the least. Sunday night I went to cut some maple and when I turned the saw off I noticed a strange noise coming from it. It was not the smooth and quite noise I have been used to all these years, but it was not a noise such as a high pitch whine or metal grinding against another...

Planer Upgrade - 12 replies

Currently I have been using a Delta TP305 for a little over 10 years and was thinking about upgrading to a new one. If I do not upgrade to a new planer I will upgrade my DC to a canister from Wynn. Would a Dewalt DW734 be an upgrade to what I am using now or is there another smaller planer worth upgrading to besides the $1000 dollar range on...

Table Saw Splitter - 31 replies

Hello all, I seem to be having a hard time finding someone local to cut out a TS splitter for me. I have created the design in google sketchup already and test fitted the splitter from a piece of cardboard cut to size/shape. The splitter needs to be between .095 – .105 thick for my blades I have. I would normally do this myself, bu...

Grizzly 1023SL Riving Knife - 6 replies

Was thinking of purchasing something along the lines of a Shark Guard or BORK, but was wondering if there has been any updates over the past several years. I have the 1023SL which was just retired a few months before the new model came out with a riving knife. My main concern is finding something that will be fairly easy to install and safe. ...

Cherry Wood Finish - 30 replies

I’ve been researching on how to work with cherry and control the blotches and it seems many different opinions are on how to accomplish this. It seems one good choice is to use BullsEye Seal Coat and apply a glaze over it. Going that route what is the best way to put the final seals on? I have also looked at BullsEye Amber Shellac, but I...

Rough cut cherry selection - 7 replies

Hi, Couple of questions on how everyone stores their cherry wood after getting it. - How easy it to tell the difference between heartwood vs sapwood at the lumberyard?- Do you let it sit in the sun for a bit to darken up the process?- Do you just lit it sit exposed in the garage for a few weeks? From the cherry I’ve bought today i...

Grizzly 1023SL Rail Extended - 8 replies

I decided to go ahead and extend my rip capacity on the table saw tonight. I wasn’t able to just undo the bolts on the rail and move it to the right like I had thought. Instead I had to drill a couple of holes in the angle. I measured the existing holes and drilled 1” from the left end and then bolted it to the cast iron table. I...

Router Table or Extension to Table Saw - 16 replies

That is the question really. Should I get a router table extension for my grizzly 1023SL and if so what would you get? Should I just build my own version of something like Norms? I don’t have a lot of room in my shop anymore though, but plan to add onto a 14×24 this spring hopefully. Thanks

Planer No 3 Identify - 3 replies

Here is a old plane that I picked up the other day from my dads garage. I’m not sure what model it is or how old or if it’s any good for that matter. I have just cleaned it up and flattened the bottom of the bed. I also took and sanded the handles down and stained/varnished them. They were really bad shape. The only thing I ca...

Just picked this up at a pawn shop for $10 bucks. It appears to be in pretty good condition except the back handle is broken off the top. I plan to start restoring the plane today hopefully, but I would like to get your opinions on what to do with the handle. Should I just taper it off on the top completely create a new handle out of some nic...

Type of Hand Planer - 9 replies

Hi,I just found this in my dad’s garage that he had stored along with another version which is a bit shorter. The only thing I can see is the initials DE and made in the USA on there. I took a little bit of the rust off today and sharpened the blade. Does anyone know what type or how old this little thing is by chance? kevin

Handcut Dovetail Problems - 25 replies

This is like the 4th or 5th dovetail I’ve done by hand so far. Can anyone give me some pointers on to get the pins / tails flush? My chisels are fairly sharp, but I need them sharper I am betting for one. In the first picture the red outline is where I had decided to cut a little deeper to see if they would sit flush, but as y...

I keep the table waxed, leveled and keep the fence in good shape. I just need some photos or something on what to do about the lubricating on the parts. Thanks, ...
