This says the Griz is in stock, and ready for shipment both locations too.

The secondary sellers on Amazon carrying your Jet saw say Oct 22nd to 30th.

Much higher than 850 though. I almost wonder if there was a model change? 850 sounds like a clearance price for the Jet, their Hybrid had been over a grand for a while I thought….

He is talking about a Shopfox not Jet but you linked the correct saw. Keep in mind a Chinese built saw that was $850 before the tariffs is near $1100 with the tariffs.

Maybe i am too slow, but this says $1199?

Shop Fox (woodstock itl) told me 5% on taiwan & 20% on china for all their new listings. Maybe i should just jump on the w1851 with a mobile base. I can get it delivered for $1220

Weird. It was absolutely $850 earlier today. Must have been a pricing error and they fixed it. Unfortunate.

Though here is one on the seller's page for $924 w/ free shipping. My guess is the pricing is variable with remaining stock?

Yep a typing mistook…. All the more reason to consider the Griz. Exactly same tools SF and Griz. SF is just Griz sold through a dealer. Griz we know the strength, SF it could vary a lot dealer to dealer on after sale issues.

I agree, good or bad, I know more of what I’m getting with grizzly. The w1837 doesn’t have a Griz counterpart really. I liked it really more for the size and weight. Small shop so portability is nice.

I didn’t realize the go771z was back in stock though. That had been my second. I’d still have a bit of debate on the Griz vs W1851 though. SF is $200 more but includes guard mount dust collection, extension table, and mobile base.

It also sounds kind of petty, but I kind of like the SF being a little unique. I’m just trying to not let that cloud my judgement.

Where are you located?

I work for a Shop Fox dealer in Kansas and we have one W1837 in stock at pre-tariff pricing. When we reorder, the price will have to go up. We don’t ship, however.

I don’t have any experience with them but Max Tool has SHOP FOX W1837 listed at $924 with free shipping and claims to ship in 3-5 days.

EDIT: it says factory ship in 3-5 days so it will probably come from directly from Grizzly since it appears that Shop Fox is Grizzly’s retail brand.

Note that for some reason if you search directly on their website rather than using the link that the google search yielded above, it shows a higher price.

JayT – I’m located in Crestwood, Kentucky, right outside of Louisville. Kansas is unfortunately a little too far for pickup. I’ll give you a $100 to make a road trip though :)

Lazy – I sent an email to MaxTool yesterday but haven’t heard back yet. The price difference is odd. I tried to buy at $924 but then it kicked me to the $1150ish price. Both are still showing up.

Thanks for looking out guys!

Hi there,
Did you ever find the W1837? I’m in Canada and got this model through Amazon at about the same time as your posts. It was quite a struggle, but it did finally arrive after several shipping delays. I also chose this model because of the portability … basement shop. I still haven’t been able to use it though. It took a while to find some help to get in down stairs, then I was laid up with pneumonia for nearly a month. When I finally got around to starting the set up, I discovered the fence and rails were missing. I’ve since found out that I was sent the wrong box #2. I ended up with an extension table with legs (but the legs are also missing) that belongs to a different model.
Now, I can’t really go back to Amazon for the missing parts, because after all the shipping problems, they declared it lost in transit and refunded the cost and said, if it shows up, it’s yours. It showed up. lol and I see what looks to be the fence system on the site with 1 available … makes me wonder if its the one I was supposed to get.

Hope you had some luck, and if you did get one, what do you think of it?

Sheila

I did finally get it! Setup took longer than I expected. I had some surface rust on the wheel mounts, which two were mounted upside down. The cabinet was not 100 in line with base. I unscrewed, shifted over and cranked it down. I used lock Tite on all non-service related bolts. Trunion was about .003 off out of the box. Wings were high, but 1 piece of tape as a shim corrected.
So far I LOVE it. I’m using the stock blade, which is not impressive, but still getting perfectly square cuts. Dust collection is okay, but with ZT insert I get a ton of chipping.
The mobile base is great. Very stable. I want to put a router table insert in. I have a 1 1/2 HP. Bosch in a Craftsman Pro table that I’m thinking of framing into it. I’m afraid of how it will balance though.
I did end up paying $950 for it though.

Thanks for the reply! Glad you got it. Looks like I’ll have to go over mine in a lot more detail. The only thing i’ve done on your list of adjustments is the wings. Mine dropped so far on the ends though that I used wood shims to line it up. Glad you seem to like it though. Good luck with the router table.
