  • Grizzly RT feedback

    Looking for feedback on Grizzlys 10" RT, in particular comparison to Phase 2 and Vertex? Owners or showroom impression.

    I have one of those and am quite happy with it. Can you get it with a tailstock??? I had to make a mount to use the tailstock off my lathe with it. I like all the clamping room that a 10" with 6 slots gives you. What size is your table??

        I also have that 10" Grizzly RT, it is very good, the only bad part for me is the weight, its all I can to do is lift it onto the mill table.

          Looks like a copy of a Yausa. So I would say it should be good.

            Ditto, ditto, ditto.

            I actually dropped it once. Missed my foot, thank goodness. Don't lift it with oily hands.

            Make it fit.

              Ditto to above. I have solved the weight problem with a moving cart. Grizzly had a tall cart with a flat top for sale. I drilled and countersunk holes in a piece of 3/4" plywood and bolted it to the top of the cart. Now by lowering the mill table only a few inches below its normal working height, I can slide the RT from the mill bed to the cart top. Then I roll cart back to its storage location.

              Being ROAD KILL on the Information Super Highway and Electronically Challenged really SUCKS!!

              Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.

                Ditto here too. I made a rollaway table as a welding table and keep the RT on it when not in use. I then made a 4 part block and tackle system to lift it off and on.
