Which one did you end up going with?

Also I completely agree with Fridge it s hard to beat it the prices and quality of Grizzly product. I honestly wonder sometimes how they do it as affordably as they do.

As for them slapping units together… True but they are clearly making the attempt, and failing, which screams QA or even training. FOR EXAMPLE… I just got in from the shop, I now have parallel at 0 degrees but my 45 was off fairly significantly. I ve shimmed my fair share of table saws in my day, and it s not rocket science.. lift this side, the opposite side is affected, right? Well my 45 was off because they shimmed it OUT OF alignment. So to achieve parallel at 45 I had to UNDO what they did. I removed their shims and it fell into place. Point being that the attempt is being made, but they have it ass-backwards…haha..

All in all this was great because I was able to teach my youngest boy how to really troubleshoot something that had me stumped, and now he knows that saw inside and out.

Ok.. well I m off to go Shrinkwrap my boat in this balmy New England weather!!!

Thanks for listening.
