Had to step back off the Griizly G0478 Hybrid 30A Service was a killer for
me. But I'm equally happy with the Rigid it cuts true and I saved enough to
get the 6" Planer.....
Assembly Time: 1.5 hours.and you'll need help to flip it with the wings on.
You could do it alone but why bust a nut. I would only change a couple of
things. First find another seller other then HD. Had to go to 2 stores,
First store had 6 saws in inventory, only could find 4, but the saw comes in
2 boxes and the Rails are in 2 of 2, No frigging Rails, I wasted 90 minutes
and that help couldn't care less, So I went uptown and walked in and a guy
named Tom knew what and where everything was out in 20 minutes. As for the
Saw, I'd add another coat of paint or two on the Chassis, come up with a
better splitter and blade guard or better add a riving knife! Other then
that I'm happy! The plus is it'll rip 36" stock, but you can easily re-align
the rails farther south and get a good 48" rip.
If you don't mind me asking, how much was it? I'm getting a little ticked
off at my current table saw and would like a new one. I've looked on
homedepot.ca for that table saw but I can't find it. I have the Ridgid
thickness planer and I'm quite happy it.
My wife bought me one for Christmas last year. Paid ~$450. Took me
about the same time to assemble. Dead nuts on right away, love it.
But over the summer I was away and some water dripped on the table.
The rust came right off, but there is a dark spot there now. Doesn't
do anything to the performance, but I want my shiney top back. Anybody
know a fix?
Buy some Bartender's Friend at the grocery store, and then work on it using that
and a scotch-brite pad. When you've got it as good as you're going to get, wax
it with Johnson's Paste Wax. I don't have rust problems in my gar... uh, I mean
You'll be very happy with this saw, but man, how'd you ever get it together
in 1.5 hrs???
It's very stable and accurate, and the wheeled base is a blessing in a small
shop. I would suggest you throw away the cheap mitre guage and spring for an
Incra. The difference is like night and day. Despite the relatively light
weight of the fence, you'll find it both square and solid in use.
I am a Assembly pro..... I'm to old to run so now I time my "assembly
performance". LOL The only real time spent is with the legs and the lift.
The hardware was really well packaged, but I've spent so much time looking
over the manual and doing my comparisons with Grizzly, Delta, Jet,
Powermatic & General. So I pretty much knew what it was and where it went.
That's where the time is saved, reading the manual and knowing the
components saves more time then anything else. You also really only need two
sockets and two wrenchs, and a philips. If I never looked at it before or
had a mental picture it might have taken twice as long.
I got mine back in May. Same story with box 2 of 2 at HD. They had a
new story open a couple of miles down the road, so when the local store
could find box 2 of 2 I went there. They couldn't find box 2 of 2 until
I pointed out it was right behind 1 of 2. Mine cost $550 plus tax with a
$75.00 HD shopping card.
I'm not an assembly pro and the fasteners for the magic lift didn't
match those indicated in the assembly instructions, even so I got it
together in about 5 hours without help, which is about average for most
Its a great saw. smooth and accurate.
