The saw came quickly and was well packaged. The instruction manual is well written and easy to follow. There was only one area of confusion with a picture of the back rail for the fence system, but a quick look at the front cover cleared it up easily. The tables are flat and the finish on them is all you could ask for. Alignments were on the money, right out of the box.
The saw is incredible. It makes about a third of the noise of my old one, and the vibration is minimal. The fence is well made, and has a heft to it that is impressive. It tracks true, and locks positively. Some other reviewers mentioned that the tape measure on the fence wasn't accurate, but I've found mine to be right on the money, no matter where I position the fence. The switch position is great, and I really love the "slap" stop paddle. The push stick they supply is excellent because it is long enough to allow you to stay well clear of the blade, and thin enough to allow you to cut small pieces easily.
The dust control system will have to be hooked up to some type of vacuum, or it throws sawdust everywhere. I wanted to use the saw, so I started without the hose. I have ordered a 2 1/2" hose and fittings to connect it to my shop vac.
Overall, I am really impressed with the quality of the saw. If something happens to change that opinion, I'll write more later.
Its been a year since I wrote the review, and my comment still stand. I've done several major furniture projects, and the saw has worked admirably. The only problems I've run into are with the dust collection system and the table insert. I bought a 6+ hp vac and hooked it directly to the saw, as instructed. Even with the vacuum running, the saw still throws more dust out than I think it should. Its not a problem, but its something to be aware of. The table insert has the problems other reviews stated. It tends to sink at the front edge, and if you adjust it to even it up with the table top, its too high on the sides. I've taken to putting shims under the front to bring it up a little.
As a warning, DO NOT crank down of the blade height adjustment knob too much. It will tighten up nicely, but you won't be able to get it undone with just your hands. It only takes a little pressure to keep the mechanism locked in place.
It is a good saw, and I am really pleased with its performance.
Let's go over the problems with the saw first:
1. The blade insert is crap and has a rubbery feel to it. It's pretty much just falling apart with how much I use it. Invest in the T20818 - Zero Clearance Table Saw Insert for G0661 and that problem is solved.
2. The fence is a new design I'm guessing because you'll have to remove some screws and distance indicator on the left side so your materials doesn't catch on it while passing material over it(the screws were higher than the table). Anyway, take that off and you'll forget it was a problem.
3. Dust collection isn't that great but I've had worse. I think the only thing better is either a cabinet saw or the SawStop contractor.
4. You must read the manual to figure out how to align the riving knife with the blade. Yes, you'll actually have to read it. You'll have to unscrew the riving knife mount and put the shims behind the mount, not next to the riving knife as they will come when shipped. Just do it right and problem solved.
The great things about this saw:
1. For being 2 hp, this is the strongest 2 hp saw I've ever used. I know that sounds weird but this kicks the pants off any other rockler/delta, or craftsman 2 hp table saw that I've used. I cut a lot of hickory with it and it doesn't have a problem. (I use an Amana Tool or Frued blades typically).
2. Don't underestimate the new fence, it's solid and doesn't take up too much room (it's not super wide like a Biesemeyer). Although I would have liked it more if instead of aluminum side panels it had HDPE plastic.
3. The riving knife is EASY to take out and put back in. If you've shimmed the mount perfectly it's a breeze and will keep you safe. If your looking at another table saw and it doesn't have one don't buy it.
4. Heaviest damn contractor saw I've ever used. This is probably because of the extra length in the cast iron wings. Don't count on moving it much.
5. The base is extra wide and solid. There is another review on here that gave 4 stars because he thought it wasn't solid, I think he's smoking something and didn't tighten his nuts because it's solid as a rock.
6. Nothing on here is plastic unless it should be. The height and angle adjustment wheels are solid steel. The fence lock is steel.
1. Keep it clean, vacuum this thing a lot because there are a lot of exposed gears that you'll want to keep the dust out of.
2. Keep it oiled, if it's hard to move around the blade oil down below to get things moving again. You'll need to do this about once a month if you use it daily like I do.
3. Make sure it doesn't get lonely, give it a lot of attention because this Grizz wants to love you!
The problems I've had are:
1. The insert shattered and I had to replace it -- the plastic was brittle. I'm waiting for the T20818 zero-clearance unit, I hear it's not too bad.
2. Dust collection is fairly impossible, and it throws sawdust everywhere (up, sideways, down, you-name-it). I end up looking like "old man mose" with dusty white hair after each cutting session. Wish I'd bought a cabinet saw, but oh well. Be sure to wear your dust mask!
3. The miter gauge is sloppy in the groove, allowing too much play side to side and angularly, and it's NOT adjustable. I find this a serious limiting factor in making parts that fit together accurately. I don't know how much effort I want to put into this, but I may have to re-engineer this a bit. I also find that the angle readout on the base of the miter gauge is pretty easy to knock away from 0 degrees (or whatever), I've ruined more than one piece of wood.
All in all I've enjoyed this saw, and even added a roll-around locking base so I can move it quite easily. This is a fine machine and a really great value.
