The part arrived just fine for my PO555 model. It took about 2 weeks with regular shipping though. This upper wheel hinge assembly is manufactured in Taiwan like the original. My bandsaw was purchased new in the summer of 2012. The new part seemed better made than the original which could be pure luck. The bandsaw blade and upper wheel needs to be removed for this part to be installed correctly. Thankfully, the new hinge came with two metal pegs.\r\n\r\nOverall, I'm quite pleased with this transaction.
I bought this to repair a Ridgid brand bandsaw. Ridgid parts suppliers and Ridgid reported the part assembly is no longer available. Ridgid offered no explanation and no suggestion as to how to proceed. I was shopping for a new bandsaw and noticed the similarities in appearance of Grizzly and Ridgid bandsaws, so I decided to take a chance and order the Grizzly part. It fit perfectly. Glad I did. My bandsaw is back in service for about $25.
Used this to replace same part on a Reliant 14" band saw. It is actually a stronger part than the original Reliant part (a big plus). Just note that this part uses metric threads for the retaining nut (does not come with it) that keeps the idler wheel on the shaft. The Reliant uses SAE. Other than that, with a quick trip to hardware store for that metric nut the band saw up and running again. Perfect fit and replacement part at fair price.
