Woodsmiths: Table saw advice needed
    #4373206 - 07/05/05 08:29 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

My woodshop projects are growing more and more
complex.

My current table saw does not cut it and I have an
opportunity to expand my shop a little bit.

I want a good table saw and a decent planer/joiner.

I am curious to see if anyone here has any suggestions.

Grizzly seems to be pretty well respected in terms
of the planer/joiners...anyone have any suggestions
on table saws that will be used for rough and fine
work?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure man, but I am getting into woodworking pretty soon here... I am going to get a wood turner and a nice set of blades so I can make some nice chairs and a table for my room. I'm more of a metal worker as a side hobby but I want to know the same as well for wood working. Soon as I can woodwork I can combine the blacksmith and woodworking for some nice pieces.

My dad does woodwork for a living. He's bought a few old, old machines (50's and 60's) and I helped him restore them. Whenever he's bought new machines, like his bandsaw, drillpress, planer, he always went with Grizzly.

I can talk to my Dad for info if you really want me to. His latest hobby (past decade or so) has been woodworking and he has a hell of a shop set up now. He is producing some damn fine pieces. Almost all his own furniture is now hand made by him and it seem like everyone he knows has a piece also (my wife got a beautiful dresser for her B-day a few years back).

Now hes bugging me about getting in there and building some instruments with him. Guitars and basses to be precise. I think I might just take him up on that and build myself a custom, matching set: an electric guitar and a 5-string bass.

no...I build lots of things.

I'm interested in redoing my cabinets.

I need a couple night stands

I need an entertainment center.

I need a dresser.

I just like building shit and need a nice
and beefy table saw.

This is what I'm looking at:

Page #19 with the mobile base so I can stow it.

check out www.grizzly.com

on the front page at the bottom there is a link
to a series of guitars that the president of the
company has made using company tools

REALLY nice work.

Ask your dad what a left-tilt table saw is
all about?

does that mean that the blade only tilts
left or that it tilts both directions cuz
all table saws tilt...right?!

Honestly if you want to buy the last table you'll have, I suggest doing what my dad did. He bought an old Delta table saw, around 1950's I think. He restored it and put a big extension table on it. It looks the same as this, but the table is twice as long:

honestly, the old saws are few and far between
from what I've been able to find and I'm really
in NO position to do restoration work.

In fact, I already have an old saw that I was
going to restore and build into a nice rolling
cabinet type of setup, but I have other projects
I need to do and don't want to have to do
that first. Plus it's a little jenky...I paid $100
used for the piece and have gotten TONS of
use out of it already.

These grizzlys are effing sweet.

I think this is the exact table saw I have, or at least really damn close:
http://www.deltawoodworking.com/index.asp?e=136&p=791

I like it, haven't used it as much as I should though. Cost ~$800 at Lowe's. The only thing I'd like it to have is an extension table or some rollers for helping to cut sheets of plywood. I was thinking about building and attaching a table, but never got around to it.

Letto,

do you know if that is a belt driven saw or direct drive?

Roadz,

I think you still have my shipping address?!

It's belt driven. I don't know what the difference is though.

Edit: Google tells me most benchtops are direct drive, and most contractor's/cabinet saws are belt driven. So I guess belt driven is better? Can't find out why though.
