I've been on the fence for awhile now about getting myself a new
tablesaw. I have a pretty nice Jet contractors saw with a brand new
Delta T2 fence. Even with the new fence upgrade it still can't overcome the under powered motor. It works just fine for ply an 4/4 stuff.
I really like the Jet and have looked into just upgrading the motor, but I know I would love me a cabinet style saw even more :thumbsup:
So I am taking the hour drive north to Bellingham on Thursday with
my lovely wife and picking up a new saw!!! sweeeeet!
Still can't make up my frigging mind though between this
http://www.grizzly.com/products/G0690/images/1 or this
http://www.grizzly.com/products/G1023RL/images/0

any suggestions as to which one to buy? I've been bouncing back and forth on the website I'm confusing myself:eek:

Also, for anyone in the Seattle area who might be interested in a nice Jet saw, I'll make you a sweet deal.

After much tire kicking today and at the risk of my
lovely wife leaving me for not being able to make up my dam mind. I went with the G0690!
I tell you what, if Grizzly were to combine some of what's best about both models I was looking at, they'd have one outstanding unit!
Either one is a big step up for me and I look forward to putting this saw thru it's paces.
I'll post some pics tomorrow in the review section.

Thanks Paul! Well like knotscott said about the G0123 the screw thread elevation was indeed very cool, that feature alone almost got me on that model.
The G0690 had a wider rip cut, although only 4" it is nice to have.
I thought it was easier to use the hand wheels and to see the angle guage. The G0123 had really nice cast hand wheels but they were so darn big I could hardly see the numbers.
After reading several reviews about the problems with the dust collection shroud and the small 2" pipe and how several folks just ended up taking the whole thing off, that kind of started to sway me.
Like knotscott said they are both proven saws. The fit and finish on both are extremely nice. This is my third grizzly machine and both my G0453Z 15" planer and G0513X2 17" band saw have been nothing but a joy to use.
I'll be back up there in about 6 months for a 8" jointer.
Slowly all my old tools that have served me well are being replaced.
