Almost excellent.

Almost excellent.

I’d say I’m an intermediate woodworker. My previous table saw was a DeWalt job site saw, the 7491RS. It’s an excellent saw but with a small work surface. The good: excellent fit and finish. most parts are durable steel, chrome and iron that fit and function very well. packaging was excellent and all parts were present and in excellent condition. assembly was pretty straight forward. the measuring tape was off and was replaced quickly after a phone call. removing and re-applying the ...

I’ve had this saw for only 20 mths, it’s always had a problem blowing breakers and now I can only get about 3 cuts before it shuts down when it gets hot. I’ve already replaced capacitors like they told me. Took 3 weeks to get those. This is costing me money! So many motors going out on Delta table saws that the motors are on back order. They want me to drive my saw an hour and a half away and just leave it. Had to practically fight them to send me a motor that they are going...

Ridgid R4512 table saw a best value

Ridgid R4512 table saw a best value

03-03-2020 06:31 AM by EllenWoodHead | 15 comments »

I was using a DeWalt 745 portable table saw for some years, and was happy with it. It’s a little 10” jobsite saw, and it did everything I asked: rough cuts, fine cuts, bevel cuts. It cuts fast and clean, and I love the rack-and-pinion fence. When I set the fence at whatever measurement I want, I get that exact cut. It has two downsides: the miter slots are junk. They’re plain slots, not T-slots, and they are sloppy. The other downside is no dust control. This is a messy litt...

SawStop Contractors Saw

SawStop Contractors Saw

I purchased the SawStop at my local Woodcraft store. Picked up the one with the 36” T-Glide fence which is most robust. The mobile base works well in my small garage shop. The out feed table attaches and removes easily with three bolts that can be threaded and unthreatened by hand before moving the saw. You cannot move the entire beast with the mobile base when the outfeed table is fastened. The saw is quiet, smooth and most importantly safe. I have added Jess-em stock feed guides using Magsw...

A great saw with a few drawbacks

A great saw with a few drawbacks

02-05-2020 02:02 AM by Knotheadwilly | 17 comments »

After the completion of my new shop, one item I definitely wanted to upgrade was my table saw. I have had a Bosch 4100 for almost five years and I can’t say too much bad about it. It was accurate, powerful, dependable but where it lacked was dust collection. I started researching saws a while back in anticipation of my new shop so there was a lot of internet time reading reviews and specifications. I also watched a multitude of videos on YouTube to help in my decision. I had narrowed it down ...

Delta 36-725 Table Saw Unboxing and Assembly

Delta 36-725 Table Saw Unboxing and Assembly

01-28-2020 02:28 AM by Dimensions | 18 comments »

So for a while now i have wanted to upgrade from my old job site saw to a new Table Saw with a cast iron top. Like many of you i am on a budget as i have four children to raise so i think long and hard before purchasing a new tool like this. After much research i settled on the Delta because it had all the features i was looking for and at about half the price of the nearest competitor. Ive only had the saw for about 3 months now and as of now i LOVE IT!!! Its been a tremendous upgrade and i ...

Yet another Delta 36-725 review

Yet another Delta 36-725 review

08-09-2019 03:47 PM by cmacnaughton | 20 comments »

I purchased the Delta 36-725 primarily based on reviews on this site, and due specifically to tinman’s review and setup instructions (https://www.lumberjocks.com/reviews/3822), which were invaluable when assembling and tuning the saw. Lowe’s delivered it and the box was pretty banged up, with styrofoam clearly visible through a couple of large tears in the cardboard so I was prepared for the worst. Fortunately, there was no damage to the saw itself. Assembly was a breeze. The blad...

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

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 ...
