Well, let me chime in to update MY postings on
the grizzly 1029 dust collector. I posted some time ago
about this unit (not to blow my own horn but...
Here they are).
I am still very satisfied with my unit. I have made a
tiny amount of progress at getting the complete plumbing in,
but, frankly, not much. Too many things to do and not enough
time or energy to deal with them.
It still sucks REALLY well, and the original bags are
in surprisingly good shape. There is no serious amount of dust
coming from them when it starts up. However, I would suggest
investing in the half micron, felt-type bags as an upgrade.
A friend of mine bought the same unit, and, has upgraded the
bags, and, has even LESS dust.
Still a pretty good deal for the cost, although rather
less than it was in 1999 when I bought mine.
Hum...I did not know that. When we got ours, I believe the
bags were only about 1 or 2 micron bags...However, indeed, the finer
the better, as it is the really small stuff that leaves a person with
a really interesting sounding cough after a few years.
However...I hope it helps a bit...I also have to say that I
have seen the 1029 in commercial shops, as well as in home shops, so
it is a pretty good machine for the price.
There appears to be some kind of firewall issue. I think they may have
changed their site recently and something they are doing now is being
choked by my firewall -- and I run 2 machines w/ different firewalls. Zone
Alarm says that it is blocking something going out on Port 80 and McAfee
says that it is blocking some UDP coming in. I have not had time to sort
this out -- and I am low-end experienced with firewalls. HTH. If anyone
has a solution, please post. -- Igor

I also am having problems reaching Grizzly, and am accessing the web
through a router. Someone else mentioned not being able to reach it
from work, but okay from home. I think you might be onto something
Make the obvious change in the return address to reply by email.
