OK 47 people have looked at this thread and no replies. I have used the search button and looked on their site. So now by luck a great deal on the harbor freight version has landed in my lap. So does anybody have idea what the slot size is on that one? Thank you. akraven

Doesn't sound like many folks have this machine. Most times people fall all over themselves to offer info.

As far as the Griz, their tech support is great (IMHO). Just give them a call. Calling Horror Freight is a waste of time.

I have the HF44142 and the T slots are listed as 12mm. This is the clamp set that fits http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/d ... mber=90752

It's Likely the Table, Not the Nuts

Post by geraldvowles » Mon Jul 21, 2008 7:01 pm

I have a BusyBee B2229 equivalent to one of these and it's a real PITA because the slots are an off-size and worse, when I did find some quality, N.A. made tee-nuts, I discovered that the distance between the table surface and the wide part of the slot is undersized so the non-threaded part of the tee shank sits slightly above the table surface when snugged up. Hope your grinding skills are better than mine :-)

P.S. BusyBee can't see their way clear to invest in a few bucks worth of these uncommon tee-nuts to support the machines they sell. Nor are they even willing to suggest where to get them.

I own the Griz 9729 & looking for users

Hi.

I own the Griz 9729 and would like to correspond with anybody who owns this machine (or one of the many like it). I may be able to offer some insight as well as ask for some, depending on the situation.

Thanks,
Hiram

You will have a much faster response posting machining and tooling question and the General Discussion section Hiram.

Strictly 3 in 1 questions, yeah here.
But even in the Gen. Disc. posting get attention right away.
