Wife gave me one for Christmas and just got around to setting it up. Adjustments are simple and directions are easy to follow, if you need them. Two small problems were encountered however. There is, or was, a 3" scale on the base below a pointer to be used to set depth of the tenon shoulder. I say was there until the protective oil that covers the jug crept under and dissolved the adhesive. I will try to reattach with some thin 2 sided tape I have or perhaps etch it into the metal. The second problem is more serious in my mind. There is a safety stop screw on the left side of the jig that is to set up against the slide locking bolt to prevent the face of the jig from contacting the saw blade. With the guide bar in the proper position for my saw and the blade just touching the face of the jig, the stop screw is about an inch short of reaching the locking bolt rendering it useless. The screw that came with it is metric, 2 1/2 inches long. I'll need to find one about 4" long, full threaded or buy the proper die and make one.
I bought this about 6 week ago and I'm glad I did. It saved a ton or time and made the Tenons much easier to fit. After a little fiddling to make it fit my was, it worked like a dream.
Im very happy with this product. Easy to put together and true. Too much grease.\r\n
The only issue I have is that the water reservoir needs a taller lip on the leading edge. With the accessory kit #2 I was able to put the correct bevel on my wood lathe tools.
It works very well with my old 1950's Craftsman 10 inch table saw. Assembly of the jig was a breeze. I was very pleased to see the allen wrench set needed for assembly that are included with the jig. This jig does a great job and is easy to set up for various tenons and other applications. I have been using it to build kitchen cabinets and it works great. Thanks!
Tenoning jig is well made and holds material firmly for accurate cuting.6
Have not had a chance to use this jig yet, though I am sure it will work out well. I just need to start another larger project that will take advantage of this jig's capabilities.
Got this Jig because I always wanted one and saw this in a sales email from Grizzly. My impression when I got it was that it was a lot of Jig for the money. A lot of people make do with homemade Jigs because of the cost and this Tenoning Jig really takes that argument away. A lot of machining for not a lot of money. I am very pleased with my purchase.
I have been wanting one of these for a while after seeing a friend who had one. This makes tenons sooo much easier to make. I wish a had purchased this a long time ago.
This jig worked great, It did not slide well in my Delta table saw at first, had to play around with the adjustments of the lower rail but after working it in, it seemed to smooth out and glide well. Adjustments worked very well and gave me some consistent cuts.
I bought this with my new table saw. Haven't had a chance to use it yet but love it's beefy construction and great delivery.
Works great! Very well made and excellent price. Makes my tenons accurate and keeps my hands safe. Love it.
The jig works just fine. After completing set up cuts are accurate and repeatable. Excellent product worth the money.
Used this for the first time it works great.\r\nI made tenons for two cabinet doors, did a beautiful job! I'm very happy with the results.I also ordered two aluminum rods for a 45 degree homemade angle sled with the adjustments on the rods, there is no play in the sled, makes perfect cuts on my table saw. VERY happy with this purchase!\r\nJimbo
Great tool and easy to set up with repeatable results. Not fancy just reliable
Very heavy duty. Instructions were a little hard to understand putting it together. But overall very good.
As everything that I have with the Grizzly name on it, this is another great item. Very heavy and well built. I've made an initial tenon with it now I need more time to start making the furniture!
I would buy this again. The jig works as advertised.\r\n\r\nThe stick on measuring tape did not stick and it was only graduated in 16ths. Maybe a gauge on the adjustment knob would be better. \r\n\r\nLarry
Haven't had a chance to use it yet. Wanted for later.
Overall this is great, especially for the price. It didn't hurt that they offered it at a significant discount during their Christmas sale either. Other than what is mentioned below, I was impressed at how easy it was to use and my tenons should be much better and definitely a lot safer now. I should have ponied up for this years ago. Four things they could do to improve it or at the very least you'll have to take care of upon receipt (at least what happened with mine):\r\n(1) The little formed bracket/fence that holds your part square to the table and to the main vertical plate needs help. The bracket/fence was not square or straight. Luckily, it's easy enough to bend and with a little patience you can get it both square and straight. \r\n(2) That same bracket/fence does tilt back by design, but to get it up to 90 degrees to the table you also will need to take a file to the back side of the casting where the lock knob washer rides to allow it to get all the way up to square. The fillet in the casting plus the paint cause it to back up every time you tighten down, which kept mine from getting all of the way to 90 degrees.\r\n(3) The casting and the hold down arm brackets interfered slightly, and I couldn't get the parts assembled correctly without a little grinding on the edge of the casting.\r\n(4) The oil that Grizzly generously soaks this thing in to keep any corrosion at bay also dissolves the glue they use to attach the distance scale. That will need to be cleaned and glued back down. This does give you the opportunity to put zero where you want it for your particular saw.
Very good addition to my shop. Very easy to use. Degreaseing took a while but it was well worth it. Set up of the tool is very easy
i have used and had very good success with the tenoning jig. I love it. Only one thing though. Is there a way to tighten it in the miter gauge slot?\r\n\r\n
I bought this jig with my table saw and was very surprised to find such a solid piece of equipment when I opened the box. I did not imagine something of this quality for the price.
Went through the setup procedures, verified that it was set perfectly for my Delta Unisaw right out of the box. I've used it for about 8 projects, each in multiple units and it has worked flawlessly. I'm even able to tenon the end of 3/8"x1/4" pieces by putting 4 or 5 of them side by side and using a solid backing board in front of the screw clamp pad to hold them all in together. The jig produces extremely accurate, repeatable results with the simplest of setup & the micrometer-type adjustment makes accuracy of fit a snap! Of course, any tool HAS to work to be of any value, but the MOST valuable feature of this tool is SAFETY. Used as instructed (both hands on the handles), there is NO WAY you are going to feed your fingers into the saw blade OR be struck by flying debris in the event of a knot or nail kicking a piece of wood out of the jig. My home made, over the fence cradle type tenoning jig,,,,,, not so much ;)
Haven't used it for more than a few test cuts, but it looks like it's going to work out just fine. Plenty of adjustment to get it dialed in.
I had been waiting about a year for this jig to go on sale, and it did right before Christmas. It thoroughly out performs the shopmade jigs I had been using until now.
had this since Christmas , easy to put together , makes nice accurate cuts , glad I bought it
I was very pleased with the jig after some assembly adjustments. It has all the material adjustment capabilities to secure the workpiece. It moves smoothly in the miter slots and has adjustment screws in the slides to engage the slides slop free. The fine adjustment knob makes precise cuts easy but the location indicator is for rough approximates only. Repeatability is a challenge but careful layout and setup is does the job it was designed for and has meet my expectations, especially for this price point.
I bought the jig in December and write this at mid February, and can honestly say it has been one of the best experiences for the money I've had. It is very easy to set up and use. Milling three dozen tenons was a snap with it. I even went back and re-cut/adjusted boards I had attempted before it had arrived! Worth every cent!
Jig is very good, only cons the little scale sticker just peeled off on first wipe down... and needed to tear it down to move the guide rail to the other holes to get it setup correctly. Additionaly the stud fastener scratched the desk of my Grizzly table saw as I didn&#39;t notice it protruding through the base. It was easily adjusted, but keep an eye out.
China-made, but there's not much you can do about that these days. I would suggest (2) tweaks to improve the performance. I inserted 0.020" shims between the rail (the part that travels in the t-slot) and the base of the H7583. On my table saw, at any rate, there was too much binding. (You could also insert thin #10 washers between the t-slot washers and the rail). Also, I added a #10 washer between the slotted bracket and the face--this is where you adjust the angle of the face of the jig relative to your table saw. Perhaps there is supposed to be one here and mine went missing? Anyway, when you tighten down the handle, without the washer the slotted bracket gets bent over too much.
This item came damaged in shipping but your customer service supervisor sent another one out right away. I THINK HEAVY ITEMS SHOULD BE DOUBLE BOXED BECAUSE THE SHIPPING PROCESS IS BRUTAL.\r\nThank You
