The power feeder makes repetitive sawing strips quicker and more consistent. A unexpected benefit was the feeder covers the blade so it makes sawing safer.

Buying My 3rd. Great Tool with a Few Flaws 05/03/2020 7:14:21 AM

Bought the first new in 1998 or so. Bought a second used 4 or 5 years ago. Ordering a 3rd today (when back in stock). Many positives for this tool. A couple of negatives. Power is good, lack of power is not really an issue with planed stock of any width/length on waxed cast iron if the ends of long stock are supported. Speed range is fine. Torque is a little inconsistent at its lowest speed but I generally only use that speed on moldings which are usually light weight anyway. High speed range is crazy high, Never used it. The positioning features are well designed and easy to adjust. Combined with its light weight, it's usually quick work to position it for any job. I regularly use them on the table saw, shaper, router table, and have one pretty much permanently mounted on the radial arm. It makes dados for cabinet backs and bottoms safe and easy on the radial arm saw. The drive components are all steel and should last forever. The electronics, on the other hand, not so much. I'm a professional cabinetmaker and this is NOT an industrial tool, so I'm not really complaining. The controller on my first went after about 2 years of daily use, I bit the bullet and bought the grizzly part ($85) because I needed it back in action. The replacement part lasted longer. But went after another few years. That time it was obviously the triac (burned and melted) which I replaced. When that one smoked, I found a solution which is more reliable (read below). The other concern is the wheels. And this is not an issue of use, but time. They glaze and harden quickly. Very quickly. You can scrape them once this starts but that only helps slightly. The wheels on the used feeder were so hard they actually shattered on the floor when I missed a throw at the trash can! At some point (a few years max), they start slipping instead of driving, no matter how clear of dust you keep the stock surface. Replacement is the only solution. Both shortcomings have their solution on e bay. The same quality wheels are ~$35 for 3 as opposed to $19 per from parts. And for less than $30, there are several sellers of a 120v ac to 90v dc motor controller that isn't an elegant fit, but with a $4 DPDT toggle works perfectly. I've had one installed since 2010 or so in daily use. The second feeder I bought was $50 because the controller was burned out. It got the same fix (see photo). You lose top speed but torque is better on slower setting and as I said, the top speeds are unusable for any acceptable surface finish anyway. With these 2 frailties considered, $350 is a great price for a solid tool. Definitely a "how did I ever get along without this" type tool.

Awesome addition to my shop! 04/23/2020 3:37:26 AM

I bought this a month ago, and wish I had bought it years ago!!! With this little guy, I milled out 240' of window and door casing (3 passes on each stick, 720' total) in just a couple hours by myself! Make sure you check out the "universal" mounting plate. Makes it much more versatile!

Great Product for what I need. 03/26/2020 12:25:59 PM

I am using this as a feeder on a v sander. It works great and is exactly as advertised. Saved my work and back.

Great power feeder. 10/03/2019 11:06:50 AM

I bought this hoping to use it on my 3 hp shaper for raising panels, it worked excellent. The reason I chose this particular model was because the speed was slow enough to perform well. Works smooth and flawlessly!

Works very well, but I envisioned something smaller. Glad I didn't go with a larger one.

Just what I needed 07/22/2019 5:15:46 PM

I have a disability that makes it almost impossible to make safe, consistent rips on my table saw. After a couple hours of assembly and set up; this nice little feeder has ended my ripping issues.

Power feed wonder 07/11/2019 12:58:35 PM

I acquired the power feed to use on my 3Hp router table. It saves tons of effort pushing material through the cutter! The feed rate is adjustable easily and is slow enough to avoid tear-out. It is easy to set up and use. I would have liked a longer arm, my table is a bit oversized for larger work pieces, so the arm is a little short, about 6.

Works well after fine toning 05/19/2019 1:56:02 PM

I had to remove one of the wheels to tighten the drive which was ready to fall off. After that it works ok . The speed seemed to surge up and down on the low setting at first, but now it is working. I have not used it much yet, but it performed well for the projects I've done.

Working out great 03/23/2018 10:51:28 PM

Finely got to run this today on window sash profiles. It pushed 7 1/2" wide by 2 1/8" thick by 6' long boards though shaper with just a little drag. Had to deepen profile, than had to assit it. In it's defence I was removing alot of wood. Standard depth profile was no problem. The smaller demention boards went right through. This is mounted on the grizzly 1 1/2 hp shaper.

Didn't work for our purpose. 01/27/2017 2:17:31 PM

We bought this intending to cut 1/4" plastic but it would not feed the material as the surface was too slick. It could feed plywood or regular wood
without issue but for us it was a non starter. But thanks to the excellent customer service we were able to return the feeder and receive our money back.
Highly recommend Grizzly the company, and its products.
