The 1023sl, and the 15" closed stand planer came today the 8x75 jointer and
the harbor freight DC are on backorder. I just finished the framing in the
shop that I wanted to do so I will be carting the tools from the garage down
to the shop tonight.
Sounds like our shops will ending up looking very similar. I just
finished the 2-year construction of my small shop. I set up my 1023L
last week. I love it. Monday I ordered the 8 X 75 jointer, 15 planer
with closed stand, 17" 2hp bandsaw, combo sander, and 20" drill press.
I bought the HF dust collector last week and just installed the Wynn
upgrade a few days ago. It works great but is sucking chips from the
bottom of the bag up into the cartridge. I'm experimenting installing
various fins in the airstream to break up the tornado. They told me the
jointer was in stock and I have not received any notification that it
is on backorder. I'll be curious to hear how your Grizzly machines work
out once they arrive. I'll report on mine too.
Best of luck,
I would love to hear how your DC efforts go. I also got the Wynn filter.
Did you get the new one designed for that DC or the one that you have to
make the donut for? I plan on running a 6" main, and am concerned about not
being able to put a separator between the main and the DC because all of the
separator lids I have heard about use 4" inlets and outlets. I just
received an e-mail that my "backordered and expected at the end of February"
jointer is on a truck and will be at the terminal on Monday. WHOOHOO. I
picked up the supplies to run the 220v service for the 3 machines today and
will install that tonight or tomorrow. I plan to clean cosmoline tomorrow
and set-up the machines on Sunday. (I promised my dad that I would wait
for him to come up, so he could have some fun too.)
I picked up my 1023SL about a month ago from
Overnite fright. Had to rent a liftgate from Budget
since Overnite would only drop it at my curb - downhill
and 150 ft from my shop.
Anyhow, you are going to really like this saw! After
taking my time to set it up (which actually did not
require any major adjustments), I am really
surprised with the quality of this machine. Being
an amateur for 16+ years, this was what I regarded
as my "final upgrade" TS.
You will also be pleased with the Shop Fox fence. I checked
out the latest Craftsman TS (around $900) with the Bies fence before I
opted for the Griz. The Shop Fox will not disappoint - it is
a hefty monster that is very accurate.
Have fun and be safe!
I paid 69.00 bucks and got liftgate service from Overnight. The issue that
concerned me was the 1 inch lip into my garage. I was concerned that a
pallet jack that is made for warehouse floors would not be able to get over
it. I had a few back up plans to deal with it. Fortunately the Overnight
driver was pretty good with his jack and got everything into my garage
without a problem. I finished prepping the basement that afternoon and my
friend and I used an appliance dolly from U-Haul to take the saw and planer
around to the shop. The saw was not bad. The planer was a stone cold
The cool thing that I discovered is that the 7' rails that I got do not
appear to be extensions of the standard rails but instead replace them
completely. That means I can put the regulars on my old saw if I decide to.
