Tool review: Grizzly Pro T31635
Big miter saw cuts accurately
The Grizzly PRO T31635 is a double-bevel sliding compound miter saw that’s well made and well thought out. The saw performed very well. My work includes light construction, architectural details, cabinetry, and furniture, and this saw was well-suited for everything I’ve thrown at it. It has enough power to cut through 8/4 maple or a double stack of 2×12 Douglas fir. The saw can also handle compound cuts. Regardless of the configuration, the saw cuts true, leaving joinery-ready surfaces behind. Changing and locking the angle are both very intuitive, and the stops for angles are all accurate.
The T31635 also has a built-in LED worklight, a laser cut guide, an aluminum crosscut fence with extensions, locking bed extensions with flippable stops, an integrated hold-down, and a 1-1⁄2-in. dust port and bag. It’s important to note that with its impressive crosscut capacity the saw requires almost 4 ft. of clearance front to back.
