I have been searching for current reviews on woodworking machinery this week. I was hoping to find fresh reviews on table saws, band saws, drill presses, and planers. I guess covid shut down the new machinery R&D, so not much has come along in new equipment to review. As a former furniture refinisher & restorer, I am somewhat shocked to see how much things have increased in price since I closed down my business 3 years ago.
My focus now is on comparing the Grizzly Go771Z10″Hybrid Table Saw to the Grizzly G1023RLW Cabinet saw ( I just picked one, the model doesn’t matter). Currently I am using a Ryobi BT3100 table saw for which I paid $60 for a year ago. I want to upgrade.
My question concerns the Hybrid saw. Grizzly’s catalog states that the trunnion is mounted on the cabinet, not the table. Most of the reviews, which are somewhat old say different. Does anyone here on the forum know which is correct? I called Grizzly’s tech service, and the woman told me the trunnion mounted to the table. I don’t have a high degree of confidence in her answer.
I really prefer to buy the cabinet saw, but that is a considerable increase in cost. I’ve been looking on Facebook Marketplace for a used saw. My criteria is left tilt and the seller has a least make an effort to sweep the dust and cobwebs off of it. And it needs to be in comfortable driving distance of 72601 (N. AR)
