Thanks guys for all the great posts over the past year or so that I have
mostly been lurking. I moved last weekend and I finally have the room for a
real table saw. My current saw is a 1950s Craftsman table top model (It
weighs over 200 lbs!). It has a smallish top and vibrates like heck, the
belt slips, I have to reach across the blade to reach the switch. Its
generally a mess.
Don't worry - I am not going to ask "What is a good table saw?". I have
pretty much settled on the Grizzly 1023???. I will have to do a little more
figuring before I decide on the exact model.
So, my new garashop.
Must view this in proportional font (Courier).
| 5'8" |
| X |
| 13'9" |
| 19'8"X19'5" |
I do not want to setup in the main part of the garage permanently. The 1023
will of course need to be on a mobile base and roll into the niche in the
back of the garage. I marked the ASCII drawing with where I think the saw
would live most of the time.
My questions have to do with clearances, etc.
Will the 1023 be too massive for my small area or massively cool?
Will I be able to use the saw in the niche when working on small projects or
is it too tight?
Any opinions as to left or right tilt given I'm right handed and the layout
Any Must have options? Motor cover, yes. Mobile base, yes. FWWII, Yes. Fence
TBD, Extension table? 220, yes.
Thanks all for your wisdom.
