I recently received (from my wife, God bless her) a new Grizzly 1023S
table saw. Expecting to spend some time with tune up, I've been
disappointed to find a .012 dip in the middle right side of the table
(but not the wings). Everything else measures flat within a few thou.
Consequently, the flat extension wing won't line up with the middle of
the table top. Grizz support claims the dip is within factory
tolerances (".015 corner-to-corner" I was told) and recommend that I
flex the wings to accomodate the dip.
My question to those who would know better--should I quit being a baby
and try to make it work or should I send this thing back and look
elsewhere for a saw? I'm not a full-time ww nor am I making puzzle
boxes, but it seems irritating and the few boards that I've run across
the table get caught momentarily on the resulting ridge.
Thanks for your time.
depth of cut would vary between the beginning and middle of a piece of
material that you can't/don't shove down hard enough to reach the bottom
of the dip. the leading edge would probably have a deeper cut as it
would be relatively easy to get the leading edge to conform to the dip.
Think of a soup bowl. you can put the end of a spoon down in the
bowl, but you can't get the length of the spoon to rest on the bottom.
this is an exaggeration, but applicable analogy. No?
I know plenty of lawyers, and even several doctors, who are far from
rich. They've got a lot of competition, and some of them finish
school with hundreds of thousands of debt.
One of the women I know, a Yale and Stanford educated psychiatrist,
who finished school with over $235,000 of debt. <G>
Funny isn't it. A doctor incurs hundreds of thousands of dollars of
debt and it takes dozens of years to pay it off. My sister in law, a
high school graduate, had 4 chicken houses put in their property at a
cost of 2 million. She paid it off in 4 years.
Well, it is within spec., even though I don't think it will affect your
work, especially at the hacker level.
Will they take it back?
Talk to Greg Leneave, Leneave Machinery, Charlotte, NC. I got a planer
from him that was both good and cheap, about $300 less than Delta. He
claims to do his own QC in Taiwan. His cabinet saw is right at $1K. He has
a lot more to lose from bad stuff than Griz does, since it's a family
