Start your drooling: Grizzly recently introduced a sliding table saw with a footprint small enough to fit into smaller shops. Why would you even want one of these saws? For one, forget about complicated miter sleds, the whole 12-1/4″ x 39-3/4″ extruded aluminum table on the left side of the blade can slide.

This model also features a second scoring blade to eliminate tear-out. The saw comes with the now-required riving knife which is adjustable. Besides the 4″ main dust collection port, Grizzly built a 2-1/2″ dust port into the blade guard. The miter fence has a built-in adjustable flip stop for making identical cuts and can be positioned 45° to the right and left. The saw comes with a 220V single phase 5HP motor which spins the 5/8″ arbor at 4,000 RPM.

Grizzly makes the 14-3/4″ x 27″ main table from cast iron, which they precision grind for flatness. If you need to use it like a standard table saw the the sliding table locks in place. The saw has a 34″ maximum rip capacity and the sliding table can cross cut up to 27-1/2″.

This sliding table saw will run you about $2,700 after shipping the 572-lb. machine to your door.

    This looks like a nice saw that is aimed at a small shop commercial market.
    We have been using a larger Shop Fox model for several years as a dedicated gang panel cutter. The Shop Fox is a bit pricier – but has the advantage of a 14 inch main blade, 440V operation and a separate motor for the scoring blade.
    If you handle a lot of sheet goods – this is a good type of saw to consider – as a supplement to your regular table saw. We do enough – that we also have a panel saw (Safety Speed Cut) that we use on single sheets – and an in-line rip saw for cutting face-frame components etc.

    You have to hand it to Grizzly, they keep improving their offerings. This is a saw that you can build your shop around. It has all the greatest add ons that you could ever want. Plus having over blade dust collection just made this saw go over the top in my opinion.

    straight t00l p0rn if i could have a dedicated area large enough i’d definitely spend the cash on it

    Want.

    I have the Grizzly 1023S and love it. It’s well built, inexpensive (For a full-on cabinet saw), reliable, and accurate. I bought the Grizzly jointer just on the strength of their table saw. They make great stuff.

    Like the commenter above, I’d definitely grab one of these if I had the shop space.

    I totally dig the saw. But, doesn’t the riving knife look too high? Shouldn’t it be equal or just less than the height of the saw blade?

  6. fred says:

    @ Rick

    As you note a riving knife that stands proud of the height of the blade limits its use to through cuts – much as a splitter is limited in this way. While a sliding table saw is most often used on sheet goods – where through-cutting is the norm (as I noted we use our Shop Fox to gang cut sheets) – having the knife sit at or just below the blade height would give the operator additional cutting flexibility. I don’t know about this Grizzly saw – maybe the picture is just an optical illusion.

  7. Tracy says:

    Don’t think it’s an optical illusion — if you look at the picture further up you’ll see it’s not just a riving knife but also a point of attachment for the guard.

  8. What Grizzly has to say on their website is just one bullet point:
    – Adjustable riving knife

    I would assume this means that you can adjust the height of the riving knife, otherwise what use would it be?
