Buy the Griz 1023SL - I did a month ago. It is
a great saw. I don't know how a 10" TS could be worth
2x the money (like a Unisaw or PM). I'm in
"woodworker heaven" with the Grizzly.
It replaced a 15+ year old import that I thought was decent
until I sprung for the Griz.

My neighbor purchased a Grizly Cabinet saw about 2 years ago
and "WE" did not have all that difficult time setting it up ... I

I like my saw better....BUT his can do everything mine can do

deciding on the Griz. I saw the Bies on the new
Craftsman cabinet saw before deciding. It was
fine, but based on what I have read here on the wreck,
I decided that the Shop Fox is almost as good if
not equal to the Bies. I always saw Norm with
his Bies and thought that I had to have one too,
but I decided to trust the wreck (I have never been
When I received the shipment from Grizzly, I could
hardly believe the quality of the SF fence. It was a
beast, almost all steel/iron, whatever. Once I had
the thing bolted to the 400lb saw, there was nothing
that would deflect it - and so far (1 month) this has
Granted, I'm a hobbyist and might have a different
set of parameters than a cabinet/production shop.
