Put in my order to Grizzly

If you guys have seen some of my other posts you'll know I am getting back into woodworking.
Put in my order with Grizzly today for my new G0715P TS, jointer, spindle sander, mortiser, and some other stuff, mobile base, zero clearance insert, dewalt dado blade set, etc.

The only problem is the mortiser
http://www.grizzly.com/products/1-2-...-Machine/G0645

is back ordered til late May mid June, and i really need one quicker.

So, question, any recomendations on similar mortiser, I wanted a 1750 RPM model as to extend tooling life - also liked the price point being as I will not be doing enough mortises to justify a powermatic.

Any/All thoughts appreciated

Can I build that? There's only one way to find out.

wow, looks like you've done your homework. I'm looking forward to seeing this shop come together. I hope you're not shy about posting photos of the build.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

ok they sell a woodriver and a delta the wood river is 249 but only has one review and that said its not that great now for twenty bucks more they have a delta which was reviewed by 14 people and got a 4 and a half out of 5. When i was at woodcraft last friday and looked at both. The delta looked like a better tool. If i were you i would get the delta

Congrats on your purchase!! Sorry I never got around to writing that review you ask for on the G0715P. Just been so busy lately. I can say I am very happy with the saw and I think you will be too. My only complaint thus far is I was missing the lock knob on the bevel crank. Grizzly said they would send one to me but it wouldnt be in stock till early April. I got a postcard from them last week saying that now they dont know when it will be in. So, Ive had my saw for nearly 2 months now and I still cant cut bevels with it because I have no way to lock the adjustment. Not a super big deal because most of my cuts are 90's but I do cut the occasional bevel and I'd still like to have it locked for 90 degree cuts.

RRBrown, knottscott and many others were banned, they didn't just leave. They were banned for standing up to the new owners that are destroying this site. Come join us all at woodworking chat, the best new woodworking site on the net!!

Plans changed on the cabinets slightly - center two lower cabinets are now six drawers - eventually going to clear poly everything instead of paint (they turned out too nice to cover in paint) - handmade hardware will all be painted black

Cabinet cases built (except for the tall ones) - really messy shop

Upper doors/shelves done - aspen doors w/ hardboard panels

Looks great and very functional. I have a Delta mortiser and have no complaints but it is the only one I have ever used.

the jointer is a Grizzly G0612 - it's alright, nothing too special - I don't have the room right now for a bigger model

the mortiser i ended up with is the DELTA 14-651 - it fit the price range and was available, it does pretty well - cleaning up the mortises with a sharp chisel is optional, it depends on how precise you want to be
