The SawStop meets or exceeds my expectations (so far)

The SawStop meets or exceeds my expectations (so far)

05-27-2019 12:30 AM by NoSpace | 2 comments »

I finally got the SawStop. I bought it just before prices went up and couldn’t bring it home for a month until I cleared space in the 1-car shop. I can’t compare this to other saws of its class, but my experience may be useful for those in a similar situation, where I had a DeWalt jobsite saw that I was able to make suit my needs and should I upgrade or not? The safety mechanism I figured I couldn’t justify NOT getting, as losing a finger could ruin my day job, and what&#...

An okay saw.

An okay saw.

11-27-2018 07:47 PM by bgilb | 10 comments »

For the money, the saw is okay at best. I used to have a Rigid R4511 (the crazy granite top one) and honestly some things about that one were better than this saw. Things I like: Solid construction and very heavy and well built. It runs really well so no issues there. Good dust collection. The blade guard is good. Things that I don’t like: #1) The fence (at least the one I got) is garbage. Everyone said it was upgraded compared to the previous model. The fence is not flat, it&#...

Great for a hobbist

Great for a hobbist

I bought the Grizzly G0771Z in April 2017. I did send Grizzly a poor review after the purchase, But, after the first 3 month of usage, I sent Grizzly a revised, but good review….. I was going to buy the Grizzly G0833P, but the salesman over the phone told me to buy the G0771Z. Reason was the shipping crate size, had to fit thru a certain boor. When I received it I took everything out of crate & dolleyed it in. The G08339P would had fit through. The rail attaching to the back of the ...

Basically a good saw but...

I’ve had the R4512 for a little over 2 years. It has served it’s purpose without wowing me. The fence has always been an issue. After 2 years of monkeying around with the alignment and settling for less than perfect. I accidentally found out that the fence rail is TWISTED. Now I know not to mess around with alignment anymore. I planned on building my own Biesemeyer fence so it’s not that big of a deal right now.Now, on to the biggest, dangerous item. I was using my R4512 to ...

Happy, after some difficulties

Happy, after some difficulties

Had some difficulty obtaining the saw from UPS freight, Grizzly’s chosen freight provider, at least in my area. UPS could not deliver because:Day 1: I could not be home from 7:30 to 6:00 waiting for delivery, I had to be out for 3 hours that day.Day 2. It was snowingDay 3. It might snowDay 4. Tailgate brokenDay 5. Turbos on truck brokenFinally the saw was delivered. As difficult as UPS freight is to deal with their drivers are TERRIFIC. I gave the driver a hefty tip for rolling it into the...

Finally went and done it

Finally went and done it

I finally went and done it. My R4512 finally stopped making good cuts so I got a Grizzly. I am SOOOOOOO impressed with this saw. Came with out a scratch on it. Easy to set up (with help). It was aligned right out of the box. The hardest part was getting it to my shop. It weighs 300 lbs in the box. Got an appliance dolly and a great big friend to help me move it. Made several cuts with it today. They were perfect. If you are thinking about an up grade, this is a really good deal.

Better saw than most

Better saw than most

03-22-2018 09:10 PM by TheStairMaster | 19 comments »

I worked with various table saw brands thru out the years, the one brand I always liked was the Powermatic, I owned a few starting with the 66 model and always enjoyed this brand, but, lately, due to safety concerns having children around the shop, I decided it is time to look into the Saw Stop brand and, of course after a little research, I decided that it would be in my best interest to go with the ICS 5hp single phase.Man do I like this saw….this is a beast of a machine, precise and ...

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

09-24-2017 04:23 AM by Rudy81 | 12 comments »

After many years of working on a basic Jet JWTS-10 that I got off Cragislist, I finally got a chance to purchase a Sawstop PCS. The saw purchase came after adding a Clear View Cyclone to the shop, but that’s another story. The Sawstop packaging was outstanding. Ease of assembly and directions were excellent. Fit and finish were also excellent and I found the tool alignment and calibration to be very good right out of the box. I purchased the PCS 3hp. unit with the 52” fence sys...

Grizzly G0690 Tablesaw Review

Grizzly G0690 Tablesaw Review

09-16-2017 06:43 AM by unclearthur | 12 comments »

Pros:- Grizzly customer service is unfailingly polite- I learned a lot about tablesaws. Nothing like taking one apart to learn how they operate.- I’ve got a lot of practice using my bandsaw- adrenalin rush when you realize you’ve switched off the saw but the blade isn’t stopping! Cons:- brand new Grizzly G0690 tablesaw was unsafe to use- 2 months of wasted time - Having to return the 500 lb saw at my own time and expense to Grizzly Much of this saga is told in real...
