    Dado Stack

    Sd508. Works well
  2. Yup, it’s a ten inch blade, tried to raid it with just the blade ( no stabilizer) didn’t help. Made sure there was no saw dust or anything obstructing it. I’m thinking the previous owner may have had it apart. Wondering if position of worm gear in relation to the mating gear may be off. (just a thought from. looking at it and trying to see what could cause it). Called Grizzly CS and talked to a “technician “ I think she was looking at the same manual I was looking at cause she couldn’t tell me anything I couldn’t already see in the blow-up! need to call them back and see if I can talk to someone that might know more. Still think it might have something to do with how the hand wheel, shaft, worm gear are installed!
  3. I bought an older Grizzly G1023Z right tilt. Max depth of cut is supposed to be 3 1/8” but, it’s actually only 2 1/4”. Does anyone know how to adjust that so I get the Mac cut I should be getting?

    Cutting coves

    Thanks. I guess it’s more than likely a technique issue. It happens mostly when I’m presenting the tool to the work. I guess more practice is neede!
  5. I’ve been trying to cut some coves, started out with small spindle gouge and got them basically the size I wanted, then decided to practice a little with a round carbide cutter. I do fine cutting down the left hand side of the cove but, every time I try cutting down the right hand side it catches and I get a bunch of tear out. Can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. Any thoughts?
  6. I thought that was what you were refering to. Those would be nice but, I've already got 300 1/4" holes drilled!!!
  7. dadoes and glue are good but, make adjustability a real pain.
  8. Which do you prefer the straight pegs or the step-down L shaped ?
  9. who makes a good general purpose blade? I have the grizzly 555lx and need a new blade. I don't do a lot of any one kind of cutting with it so I just want a blade that's just a good all around blade. The one that came with the saw was JUNK
  10. there's a couple tools I'm not familiar with.....yet! that makes sense. And I should have remembered that from the home building course I took 40 yrs. ago. What about outside corners? boy, I really need a refresher course!
  11. wanted a book simply because I want to learn more about molding and trim work. You're right I could get by on this one job without but, i would like to learn as much as I can ! I'll check that book out, thanks.
  12. Looking for a good book on cutting/installing molding. I'm doimg some molding (mostly baseboard) in an old farm house where most corners that should be 90s aren't necessarily 90, if you know what I mean! So my 45s are going to be a little more or a little less than. I'm looking for a good book that might help me figure out how to cut those less than perfect miter joints I'll be dealing with.
  13. "Wouldn't this be a good way to start"? Im a word NO
  14. may have to give that a go next time around! Thanks
