After googling and googling I have not found the answer to my specific
It is time to buy a new saw. I have owned two unisaws and have been very
happy with both. I downsized and sold my last unisaw to the people that
bought the house and shop. Last night I lost the bid on another Unisaw by
$1.96. The new shop will be ready for tools and I am thinking of buying a
1. If you have owned both saws how do you compare them?
2. If you have owned both would you buy a 1023 again?

Thanks for your time and information
The OP says _he_ owned (2) Unisaws. That's 1/2 the info, safely tucked
in his head.
Then _he_ can personally do a hands-on with the Grizzly. That's the
other 1/2 of the info.
The OP himself will become one person with first hand knowledge of both.
Think about it. Once he fingers the Griz, establishing the differences
bewteen the two that are important to him, long term info is easily Googled.
Yes, I have. I bought the 1023 as my first cabinet saw. The extension had a
flaw in the casting and it vibrated more than I liked. A call to Grizzly
customer service had a new wing and 3 new belts at my door in a week. I
installed both and enjoyed the saw for several years. An old Unisaw showed
up and being the tinkerer that I am, I restore her. 1955 model. It ran just
as good as the Grizzly. But....it was a Unisaw, so I sold the Grizzly.
There are so many Unisaws out there, its reasonably easy to find one.
I became very fond of older Delta/Rockwell iron and tried to stick with it.
Its well made.
For new, the Grizzly is a great value. If your ego has to have a
Unisaw...better pony up the dollars or find a good used one and satisfy the
