That is really great, good to see a Griz follower. Do a photo series when she arrives.

Congrats on the new toy Chuck! I received my G0716 about 3 weeks ago. For such a small machine, that thing is a tank! I can’t believe how strong the motor is. I gave it, and my new G0555P a workout the other day to break them in. Lots of resawing and lots of sanding. I love them both. I know you will enjoy yours too. The waiting stinks though…

I am glad to hear that, they sent me the replacement belts for it, I wish it would have been the other way around. But I just dont have any luck.Oh well time goes when you are old like me.

I love my Grizzly shop tools! I have a Table Saw, 6” Jointer and 15” open end Drum Sander. I’ll definitely be buying more grizzly tools!

just started doing woodworking. I have to have patterns to make a project. can not come up with anything off the top of my head yet. Is there any chance that you would email me patterns on the trucks and trains and cars? my email address is——-[ [email protected] ] any help you can give a poor grandfather on social security would be a blessing to you and me too. thanks
