Grizzly G0690 Hybrid Table Saw

The Grizzly G0690 hybrid table saw is an avatar of performance and quality. With its triple belt drive that has a 3 HP motor, its heavy cast iron trunnions and its massive wings and cast iron table, this saw is nothing short of a beast. It is comprised of a high-quality magnetic switch, a camlock T-fence, T-slot miter gauge, heavy cast handwheels, 4-inch dust collection port, and a riving knife.

This saw is a premium standard hybrid table saw which would be the center of attention in given shop.

The Grizzly G0690 is certified by CSA, and it also meets the UL 987 standards. These two certifications are proof of the quality of this saw as well as other hybrid table saws. The Grizzly G0690’s 10-inch left tilting hybrid table saw is easy to work with and squares up with the blade quite smoothly.

Its camlock T-fence has an HDPE face, and its riving knife is equipped with a blade guard. The device has a quick release feature for its riving knife, motor guard, and the splitter assembly. What this does is that it helps to enhance your safety while you work with the tool.

Its easy glide fence system can be adjusted by knurled knobs, and there are also adjustable screws inside with the set screws that hold the insert of the table down. The 10 x 40-inch T-blade has an H3308 push stick that makes it easy to use.

This hybrid table saw is one that is easy to install. Its 3 HP saw motor is great for cutting 8/4 padauk, maple, or purple heart. If you are not planning to keep it stable in one spot, a mobile base would help here, helping you to move it around with ease.
