I am thinking of buying a oscillating edge sander and have been looking at
the G9982. But I have never purchased a Grizzly power tool before. I would
like some opinions on their quality, finish and reliability.
As with all tools, you get what you pay for. They are not the best, highest
qaulity tools you can buy, but they work and with a little maintenance now
and then, replacing hardware occationally, etc, they will last a long time.
I have several grizzly tools (bandsaw, shaper, jointer, sander) and I have
no regrests. I would buy more if there was anything else I needed at the
moment. There tech support departmnet is very easy to deal with too. (Should
you have any problems.)

Excellent jigs and mods! Love the xy on the mortiser.
I had a question on the shaper. Any difference on the finish or cut quality
when spinning router bits slower on the shaper?
A friend has a Grizzly shaper. Although he seems embarrassed to own a
Grizzly (for whatever reason -- maybe because he owns Robland combo), he
does say how much he likes his shaper.
I have used it. Personally, I would prefer a PC router in a solid and
shaper is on my short list. 3hp most likely from the grizz due to the lower
cost around 800 and needing it for raised panels.
I would love to have lots of embarrassment by owning about 20 grizzly

I have 3 and a Woodstock and am proud of 'em all.
(Well, as proud as a Normander can be, anyway.)

I think Grizzly is like most - a blend of good and not so good. It looks
like their 1023 series of cabinet saws has been the flagship of their
product line and there are a lot of very happy users, including yours
truely. Some of the equipment I saw on there showroom floor looks great,
some not. You just have to do your homework and shop.
If you are focusing in on a particular product call their customer service
line. They will provide phone numbers of up to two customers in your area
that have made recent purchases of a similar item.
