Never knew 2/6/2018

I bought this during the Christmas sale. I’ve had it a while to play around and wow. Never knew how much better this was going to be compared to my little ancient bandsaw I’ve been using. I had put off getting one thinking the difference between a 10” and 14” wouldn’t be that much but it is enormous. Have cut hard wood with no trouble been doing a little resawing no trouble plenty of power. Came to my house in perfect condition instructions were easy to follow I had it set up and cutting in a little over an hour

Great Bandsaw for small shop 1/16/2018

I purchased this last fall and have used in several times. Made some gifts using the saw. What a pleasure to have a good bandsaw. Recommend it .

I bought this saw a few weeks ago. The saw looks great. I haven't had an opportunity to use it yet. Grizzly shipped the saw the next day but because I live in an area where UPS freight doesn't deliver the saw set in Salt Lake for 5 days before it was shipped on to me. Grizzly needs to not use UPS freight for the shipping of items to areas where they don't deliver. I will be buying more equipment from Grizzly in the future.

Good Saw 1/4/2018

I have used this saw a little and am happy so far with it's performance. Found one of the upper wheel alignment setscrews was broken, replaced it and the un-broken one with a higher grade screw.

Perfect bandsaw for my shop 1/4/2018

I was excited to receive this bandsaw from Grizzly. I purchased during Black Friday sale, which off-set shipping price. Assembly was easy, and then I noticed the housing was dented. A quick call to Grizzly got it resolved quickly and part was here the next day no charge. I’ve used it many times to make projects and Christmas gifts for others. Bandsaw box is my net project. I decided to upgrade to TimberWolf blade, as I could see that the OEM blade wasn’t very sharp. Love this and will continue to recommend to anyone who asks.

1/4/2018

received two weeks before Christmas,set up in my shop and did all the adjustments in about two hours,the videos were very helpful I watched on your web site on set up.did a few little projects with it and was very impressed with the way it worked,then I ordered some good blades and was even more impressed,over all very happy with the saw...

1/3/2018

Showed up with minor cosmetic damage due to shipping. The table was far better protected by packaging than the saw itself! It's a good saw. Some minor inconveniences, like it's hard to weave the blade around the fence when changing it, the roller bearings are difficult to adjust, and the tensioner does not stay "graduated" - the little red block seems to stay put and not change position as it's tightened.

1/1/2018

The Band saw works great! After the setup I was able to re-saw cedar strips so thin and accurately that I could see light through them!

Mitchell G
Great looking saw 12/30/2017

I have not had the chance to use it because I’m still setting up my shop. It is put together looks sharp especially with my new grizzly table saw. Can’t wait to get them both going in a new shop! I do however have an issue with the nuts and bolts bag. They make packaging to fit exact to parts ( legs fence,etc.) but why is the bag that holds the nuts and bolts so cheap? It was open and lucky they were all there. ( Not the case with my tablesaw) what a bummer when you can’t put it together cause the nuts and bolts are missing. But over all it seems to be a great saw

12/29/2017

I bought this product a month ago. Only problem that I had was the lever for the blade quick release was installed backwards. once that was fixed, everything worked well. Very pleased.

Great band saw...Shipping was to be desired. I received damage parts but grizzly made good for them. 12/28/2017

Bought 2 10" band saws and both could not compare to me G0555LANV.

12/28/2017

I purchased the 30th Anniversary Band Saw and couldn’t be happier, it was everything I thought it would and better. Very simple to assemble and adjust the blade to the right tolerance. Thank you for a very sound tool.

12/28/2017

Excellent quality. Haven't used it yet but am excited to do so. Thank You for a great quality item

Chris R
This saw is incredible! 12/28/2017

I love this saw! I have nothing to compare it to, but I know tools well enough to know quality... And for the price, I don’t feel like it can be beat! I will not buy tools from anyone other than Grizzly! It’s heavy as heck so have a friend help... Setup is a breeze... Watch the popular YouTube videos for fine-tuning and you will not be disappointed! I can’t say enough good things about this saw!

fantastic quality 12/28/2017

blown away by the quality of the machine, the packaging and the owners manual compared to grizzly of 25 years ago {belt and disc sander} someone is paying attention to the details ,my hat is off to your team, thank you! VERY HAPPY with the purchase

Great saw. Glad I purchased it. 12/28/2017

Carey J
Very well built 12/27/2017

This is an industrial quality saw, Lowes and Home Depot have no comparison.

12/27/2017

Delivery could have been better. Would have been nice to know that I would need a set of metric wrenchs and a set of
allen wrenchs.

G0555LANV 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Anniversary Edition 12/27/2017

it's a great ban saw not had any problems with it. I have cut quite a few 3" hard wood bowl blanks. no stalling or slowing down. I will say you need to change the blade right off. I got blades from Highlander wood working.

James S
Fantastic Product Grizzle 0555LANV 12/27/2017

Fantastic band saw. quite too. no vibration at all should have bought a Grizzly along time ago. I will always buy Grizzly from now own.

12/22/2017

When I received the g0555LANV, I had a small problem with the rack and pinion system. The gear on the shaft and the guide slot were not parallel.I called Grizzly and had a new part in 3 days. Now its perfect. Grizzly customer service is unbelievable. The tech took my word for what was wrong and sent the parts. So. Am I happy with with the saw? Yes I am. Once set up, there's no vibration and its very quiet. I did change out the stock blade for a Timberwolf.

Michael P
Great value! 12/21/2017

This saw fills my needs perfectly and the price was an offer I couldn't refuse.

12/21/2017

I bought this GO555LANV 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Anniversary Edition in early December. It took about an hour to assemble and the assembly process went well. At this point I rate it an excellent tool for all my cutting needs.

Essential for a work shop 12/21/2017

I love this bandsaw very very happy 12/20/2017

I got this a few months ago and i just love it works fantastic onky issue i had was with the shipping company charging me for a lift gate that i didn't need after i paid 85.00 For shipping.

Love my saw! 12/20/2017

This is one of the best saws I have ever had the pleasure to use and it looks great too! I did a lot of research before making this purchase and I sure am glad I did because it paid off big time.

Larry B
What a difference. 12/16/2017

Haven't had much time to truly give this a test. I'm waiting for the riser kit. I only have the blade that came with the saw. Didn't figure it made any sense to buy the shorter blades. The shipping box had two 4X6" holes from a fork lift. However the saw was untouched! It went together really well and wasn't a real problem to adjust. It is a replacement for about a 30 year old Craftsman. The saw served me well. I had done some updated and rebuilds along the way. This is so quiet and smooth that i'm going to have to be extra careful. The blade keeps moving for about 45 seconds after it's shut off.

Chuck B
So far meeting all expectations. 12/15/2017

I purchased the saw a month or two back and had it shipped. When it arrived, the box was pretty beat up, but once opened, it looked the Styrofoam did its job. I unpacked it, set it up and started looking over all the tuning points to familiarize myself with it. It was then I noticed one of the offset screws on the top wheel adjustment assembly had snapped off (I think it was a bad screw rather than overall craftsmanship). I called support and they were extremely helpful. I did not want to send the entire saw back for just one piece. The entire assembly was offered as a single part. They shipped it out and a few days later, I had swapped them out. Now it was unfortunate that I could not use the saw immediately, however this did give me the opportunity to really understand the saw and how to assemble and tune it. Once everything was put back together, the saw runs as well as I expected when I purchased it. Good quality, craftsmanship, and fine customer support.

Nice addition 12/14/2017

Love the saw, easy to work with. Hardest thing about it was getting from the delivery truck into my cellar.

Excellent Product 12/14/2017

I've been needing a new bandsaw for a long time. And, after watching a lot of on-line videos, I chose the 14'' GO555LANV Anniversary Edition and absolutely love it. It gets used every day,mainly for re-sawing and cutting out bowl blanks and spindle blanks. I've sliced a few strips of Curly Maple as thin as .050'' with no problems what so ever. The fence is pretty good,but for re-sawing, I made a fence the shape of an "H" from 3/4'' Melamine that slides snugly over the stock fence. The cast iron table is as smooth as glass and gets a coat of Johnsons Paste Wax regularly to keep it that way. This saw is vibration free and runs as smooth as silk. And yes, you can stand a nickel on edge and it will stay on edge when you start/stop this saw! Assembly was simple with the provided instructions.
Over all, I'm very pleased with this bandsaw and have no negative comments to add. I gave this machine a 5 star rating because it's a 5 star machine.

Now I'm patiently waiting for the riser block kit to be delivered. (#T-25554)

Outstanding support. 12/14/2017

Tech support can not be better.I would recommend Grizzly to anyone.

alan A
The best of of the 14" features 12/13/2017

This is a great saw even better than the one I have. It has some better features like cast iron wheels and the whole tension is different Bought it for my son as Christmas girt and gave it early'. Loves it and deli very was very nice with lift gate he brought saw up to his garage ,that's over the top. Lights would be a good add on sale in LED Thanks

Set it up, was cutting vineer right off the bat with a different blade

Avery Great Product 12/10/2017

My wife wanted to put it in the living room-"It's a real beauty"

David H
Big Black Bear 12/10/2017

I purchased this saw a year ago now. And the thing is great. Table is nice and flat, wheels were balanced out of the box, I had no problems putting it together. Just looked at the pictures and found the part I needed. It was that simple. Replacing the blade that comes with it is a must. That thing is not sharp at all. I've considered running the stock blade inside out and backwards just to see if it cuts better that way. It's that bad. Brand new blade out of the box was burning it's way through maple. Got a Carter blade and it cuts like butter. I resawed wet logs through the saw with the Carter blade and I got boards in no time. Fence is nice, scale is accurate, I haven't used the miter gauge because I like the one I have for my tablesaw and use it every time I need one. But the stock miter gauge is feels robust. My only complaint is the dust collection on it puts more saw dust back on the table and on the floor than it does in the dust collector. It's not a deal breaker IMO. It gives me a chance to get creative about rigging up an under the table dust port also.

Donald C
Great addition to my shop 12/10/2017

Cuts like a hot knife through butter. Excellent quality and the best looking tool in my shop. I made the right decision to buy it.

Bryan V
Fantastic Bandsaw, love the extra bonuses! 12/4/2017

Aside from a cool color scheme, having the cast iron wheels makes this bandsaw an even greater value than it already is! Grizzly does an amazing job of posting online videos throughout setup, so take your time, have patience, watch the videos along with the manual. This is my first time owning a bandsaw, and once everything was dialed in, it worked amazing. I am really happy with this purchase, and feel as though the bandsaw will be my main "go-to" when i start projects.

Kenneth S
Awesome 12/3/2017

Awesome saw, work's great, runs great. Amazing the accuracy, I was playing, taking 8" 2×4 and slicing off 8" long sheet 1/16th of an inch and a little thinner jest to see what it would do and it never veered off. Definitely worth every penny. For what I'm doing, I'm not planning on getting the riser but maybe in time.

12/2/2017

What a great product! It's everything I was looking for and then some.

jim H
God product,well built 11/30/2017

The bandsaw works great,does everything I expected.
Dust collection is a problem,even with a dust vacuum what I bought.

11/30/2017

Excellent product. Very glad I purchased it from Grizzly.

Pleasure to use 11/16/2017

Bought this saw to replace my aging Craftsman band saw. Way better saw than that craftsman. Should have done it a long time ago. Heavy cast-iron construction which makes this so very stable. For the money I don't think you can buy a better saw.

Love it 11/11/2017

Have now had a chance to work with this bandsaw and I️ wonder now how I️ got along so long without one. It arrived quickly, Assembly and setup was a bit of a challenge with one persons but only took about 45 minute to an hour to assemble and then another hour to go through the checkout and setup. Great Buy as usual from Grizzly

Great Bandsaw 11/4/2017

This is the first bandsaw I’ve owned and ordered it based on the reviews. I initially looked at other brands online, but many of the reviews mentioned missing parts or difficult to assemble. The Grizzly band saw went together perfectly. Best of all, it works even better than it was to assemble. I would recommend this excellent addition to any shop.

robert S
cut things to size 11/3/2017

I received it last month and it is a main piece of my new shop.

Grizzly band saw, Quality 11/2/2017

This is my 2nd Grizzly 14” bandsaw I’ve owned. It does everything I need and more.

Edward V
This Bandsaw is GREAT! 10/30/2017

This is the best band saw I have ever owned. Everything was packed with care and the shipping was very fast. For the most part the saw was already together and it is a 2 man job to set the saw on the stand. The stand is very well made and does not wobble like some stands do. All in all this seems to be a very well built machine. The dust collection isn't the greatest but I can live with that. It makes very little noise when running. The one thing that I wish it would of had is a light. I really didn't want to spend what I paid for this saw, but I am sure glad I did. And one more thing, make sure you get a good blade to put on this saw. The one that was on mine wasn't worth putting on the saw.

Darren S
Excellent Product 10/28/2017

The only issue is dust collection is not that great.

Also I just wish they would sell the band saw with the riser block configuration. Ii could have saved me some costs on the original blade and guards that now serve no purpose.

Ronald B
10/27/2017

Easy to assemble. Looks good. Looking forward to using on winter time projects.

Very happy with this bandsaw 10/23/2017

I've had this bandsaw for a couple of months and am very happy with it. It did seem a little fussy to set up, but once that was finished it has worked fine. The included blade makes a nice cut but is pretty slow for ripping, That was expected; I will be getting a different blade for ripping and expect the saw to perform just as well.

10/20/2017

Getting the bearings adjusted was cumbersome . Aligning the blade on the flywheels the wheels should have a stop ridge on one side .

Just what we needed 10/19/2017

We have changed all our saws to Grizzly. Quality saw, good price, and easy to purchase replacement parts.

Harry H
A good bandsaw at a fair price --- couldn't be happier 10/7/2017

After much deliberation, I took the plunge and purchased the Anniversary Edition of the 14-inch Bandsaw. Delivery was by UPS Freight to a terminal about 45 minutes from home. But I saved on the tail-gate fee when the UPS loaded the saw into my SUV with using a fork-lift. Assembly of the base was straightforward and easily mounted on my homebuilt movable base. I did need help lifting the heavy saw onto the base. The saw itself was easy to assemble and adjust --- just follow the well-written instructions. And, the first trail cut was perfect. Now I can start re-sawing the walnut that has been drying in my shed over the past three years.

10/5/2017

The best band saw I've ever owned. Thought the instruction manual could use some improvement... But overall, an excellent product.

G0555LANV 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Anniversary Edition 9/27/2017

I hit the wrong button earlier. This machine is very nice and I am very pleased. Does all I need to do. As said before assembly of this thing is much easier with two people. Very heavy. The videos are very helpful and we were up and running is about 2 hours. I may buy some addition blades, but for now the one supplied is fine. Definitely would recommend this bandsaw. Good price, fast delivery. The UPS freight guy was wonderful.

9/25/2017

I've had it about a month now and it has been incredible. I upgraded from a small benchtop model and man what a difference it makes. I never knew how much I would use a bandsaw. I have used it in all capacities from tight curves with a 1/8 in blade to resawing and haven't had any issues. Really enjoy the product.

9/23/2017

I'm very happy with the purchase is a Good machine, I recommend it.

9/22/2017

Bought the band saw in April and received it in September after a wait. Grizzly called and asked if I would accept an anniversary edition of the 555 band saw instead of the LX. It is a beautiful version of the same saw and I am quite pleased with how it operates. Smooth as silk, fun to set up and cuts great. Buy this machine. Either model will make you smile. Delivery was a great experience with calls and dropped inside my garage work shop.

Dan S
Far beyond expectations. 9/17/2017

Everything about this bandsaw is top quality. Adjustments are easy. And it cuts like a charm!

Worth every penny & more. 9/15/2017

I build wooden toy trucks and planes, and always wanted a better band saw then a Sears Cheapo. Approx: 620.00 with taxes and a extra blade by the time it got home. But OMG what a great tool, it has saved me so much time and my quality is definitely up as is my turn around times and as I am doing 14+ 24" long wooden trucks of different types for Christmas this thing is a life saver. Best investment I have made in a while.

Best saw ever 9/15/2017

I honestly think this is the best saw I've ever used. I like that I can hear my radio over it, and changing the blades is so easy.

Larry S
I love this saw 9/14/2017

Excellent product. After I got it assembled I was able to begin my waiting projects right away. Great power and precision.

Great Bandsaw 9/6/2017

I haven't used it a lot. But it has performed flawlessly so far. Very happy.

Warren D
Wow! It works as well in use as it does in the vidieos. 9/3/2017

I bought a competitors 14" saw rather than the GO555LANV based on what looked like a compareable product at a lower price. What a mistake! The thrust bearing at the back edge of the saw blade is too small in diameter and not lubed. It wore out in a hurry. Got the Grizzley just to prevent using a big hammer on the first saw. (total frustration) This is a great saw, works very well. Quiet, smooth operation. Very easy to set up out of the box. Useable, straight forward adjustments of all components. I use it to make parts for a Mountain Dulcimer.

Great quality and value 8/31/2017

Working with different types of tools over 50 years I have a great appreciation for the feel and workings of a quality tool. This saw is excellent in quality. I would expect this level of quality to be much more expensive therefore a great value for the dollar.

8/31/2017

I always wanted a much better band saw than the 9 inch one I had used for years. This one fits the bill, it is a great product and has plenty of power. I am still getting used to it but I can already tell you that I would not trade it for another one. It is the perfect combination of power and features but small enough to use a mobile cart due to my smaller shop size Great tool.

Richard T
Always wanted a bandsaw 8/27/2017

Retired finally and built a work shop for myself. Looked long and hard to find a bandsaw with the features I wanted. Grizzly was the only saw that met all my desires. The cast wheels take longer to start and stop but it keeps on cutting the hardest of woods. The quick release feature was a bonus. The guides have 3 roller bearings on the top traveler and 3 on the bottom. It does not take long to make proper adjustments with the fine tune screws. Release the side bearings and adjust one at a time and listen for sound. When running true it will gently sing to you with a tiny chirp where the band is welded. The fence and push bar are very well adapted to the table. Buy at least 3 or more additional blades of various sizes as I did. Get the mobile base too because this unit is top heavy and you will want to move it one day. Have a friend on stand-by for when it comes in. The anniversary is the same as the other 14" but the black color scheme looks nice in my shop. Staff were friendly and helpful with my purchase.

Assembled & inservice 8/26/2017

I have assembled my new band saw and adjusted the required items and have used it and I can say I am satisfied with the quality and would recommend this model to someone looking for a saw well above the big box store models available everywhere.
The order disk was courteous and helpful ( I ordered additional blades). The shipping was on time and as described on the web site.
The owners manual was very helpful and detailed (although it was under the saw in the packing crate).
I had not used an upright band saw in over 55 years so I needed to go slowly through the setup and adjustment steps (several times) to get it ready to use.
On my first cuts I noted that the cutting area could benefit from a light, even though my shop area is well lit. So I bought a cheap battery LED light, mounted it on a left-over cabinet door hinge to the upper wheel guard door. It folds flat (almost) against the door when not in use and gives much needed light at the blade.
The lower wheel housing has a 4" dust collector port on the back, with a spider cross spanning the opening. As I work in model ship building my shop does not have a 4" collection system so I use a small shop vac with a 1-1/4" hose. I was not satisfied with the efficiency of the collection so I hooked my larger shop vac with a 2" hose and still not great collection. I thought long and hard about removing that spider cross from the opening. Seeing no alternative, gone went the spider but the collection is still not the best.
Maybe if I had a 4" system but ...............
This model comes with a tension release lever (as most band saws do) but I found that it drops the upper wheel so far that the blade can (and did) slip almost off the wheel. So I had to open the upper door and turn the wheel by hand after resetting the tension lever to make sure the blade was in the middle of the tire. So I fashioned a small block of wood to prevent the lever from fully dropping the upper wheel. And now the tension is released but the blade stays in contact with the tire (but I look at it anyway).
My last comment is about the very sturdy fence system. However, it is so tall that it is prevented from being set closer than 1-1/2" from the blade when the blade guide assembly is lowered for a thin work piece. As I will be cutting thin material often less than 1-1/2' wide I made a strip of 1/4" thick x 1-1/2" wide masonite the length slightly longer then the table with a block glued under the end over hanging the near side of the table. I call it my fence extension.
Now, on the the next project.

Very nice piece of equipment! 8/23/2017

I purchased this band saw as an upgrade from a smaller 10" saw. The quality and accuracy of the Grizzly band saw exceeded my expectations.
It arrived as scheduled, everything was packaged well, with no missing parts or damage. Assembly was easy and was completed with no issue.
A bonus is the fantastic quality of the paint and graphics. A great looking machine!

Brian S
Great saw 8/22/2017

8/18/2017

Excellent band saw for what it is. Takes some time and patience to setup correctly. Dust collection needs some improvement.

Leonard C
8/16/2017

The anniversary 14 inch bandsaw has worked out better than my best expectations. I also ordered the six inch riser bar. Again, easy to install and works as advertised. Great saw, but poor blades. I would highly recommend this saw to anyone.

michael
Awesome saw 8/11/2017

Been using my band saw for mostly ripping logs and making jewelry boxes. This is a top notch saw. very easy to set up and use. recommend adding the six inch extension immediately!

Sean F
Fantastic bandsaw with excellent value 8/10/2017

I bought this model over the Rikon 14" and I'm glad I did. The many reviews of this saw online are overwhelmingly positive and well deserved. The packaging is terrific, several inches of form fitting foam protects the saw during shipping, and assembly is quick and easy. Once the saw is properly tuned you'll be making accurate cuts with little blade drift in no time (I like using Alex Snodgrass' method over the one outlined in the instructions).

Why did I wait so long? 8/10/2017

After struggling for 12 years with a HF saw and ruining countless pieces of wood and antler (I make custom knives and handcrafted furniture), I finally had enough and ordered this saw based on reviews and being on sale. Set up was a breeze but got to have help getting top on base. Total setup time, maybe 90 min. Video on website most helpful in alignment of guides. First three antlers through hardly needed sanding they were so straight. Hardest exotic woods, same thing, straight and smooth. Why did I wait so long and sacrifice so much good material trying to get along with that old saw is a question I will ask myself every time I use this saw.

Colby C
7/31/2017

Although I had to wait on backorder for this bandsaw, I am very happy with my first Grizzly purchase. The saw itself was straight forward to setup. The tension release lever is nice. The blade that came with it isn't the greatest but it works fine for cutting out plywood. I use a Timber Wolf 1/2" for ripping and resawing and 3/16" for curves.

I like it just wished it had a light on it 7/29/2017

Lutfalla K

It is a very nice Band-Saw, very well put together, heavy, no vibrations and clean cut - can be adjusted to re-saw 12" for a few dollars more. The most important thing is the support from Grizzly, their Website and their customer service is outstanding - Thank you folks at Grizzly

14 inch Band saw 7/26/2017

I receive the saw Used my Tractor with forks to unload it from the truck. It took my brother and I 3hrs. to put it together. Works great glad I bought one. It was packed well and I bought it on sale $50.00 off. Good buy.

Yes this is a great product. 7/20/2017

Very fast delivery. I was greatly surprised.

Thank You

Great product 7/19/2017

Bought the saw a month ago and assembled it, haven't had time to fine tune it yet but did some test cuts. Everything is in fine working order and looks to be an excellent purchase.

Blade won't stay true. 7/19/2017

The blade wheels were not even close to alignment. Still can't get this to work correctly when cutting curved pieces.

Super machine!!!! I woodwork for a living selling on Etsy and this was a much needed purchase. This machine literally cuts out 2-3 hours a day of handwork for me! This machine has everything you would be looking for in a top quality bandsaw. Buy a nice blade for this right off the bat and you will be happy you did. I have a Grizzly drum sander and spindle sander along with this bandaw and just my opinion as someone who spends 10-12 hours a day in the woodshop, i would highly recommend you buy anything that they sell here!
Thanks,
Doug

My First Bandsaw 7/14/2017

Full disclosure, I don't know a whole lot about bandsaws other than...I really wanted one. I'd been to Woodcraft, looked at the Rikon's, the JET's, the Laguna's...read a LOT of online reviews, magazine reviews etc... In short, I spent long 6 months looking for one that I can learn on and then keep using.

To that end, you can't beat the price for what you get. I paid the extra for the lift service off the truck, the details said it would arrive between 1200 and 1400 and we'd get a call to confirm. The SAIA semi showed up w/ all of 5 minutes notice when they called. That's a first. Stuff is NEVER delivered on time, especially to me...that's like a rule. The driver was amazing and even dragged the pallet up into the garage...who does this anymore?

I took my time putting this beast together. The stand is a bear to assemble (even has a bear decal too) and takes a lot of patience. The bolts are not the problem, it's the nuts that screw on and quite a number of them are in the darnedest locations where the metal is crimped due to the design. After that, get the help to lift the primary unit onto the stand and bolt it down. If you don't have a permanent location for this, put the stand on a mobile base first and lock it down. After that, read the rest of the instructions again...and again....and again.

There are a couple of problems with the book in general. First, some of the pictures just look backwards and the parts diagram at the back could be clearer and not so small. This is just a minor gripe. Next, the trunnion base does not come attached to the table - for obvious reasons. That same trunnion base came with the positive stop bolt already attached to it. At the time, I had no idea what a positive stop bolt was. When I got to step 9 on page 17 looking at figure 14 where it shows you how to attach the trunnion base to the saw body, there is no positive stop bolt. It's not mentioned either...so I removed it. Don't do that. On page 27, you get to the Table Tilt Calibration and that's where you find out what that positive stop bolt is for...and you have to remove the table from the trunnion base as it's not designed to do that function from the bottom. Other than that the book is great.

Attaching the table to that trunnion base also requires some patience as well. Then the capper. You have to align the table. To do that there are 6 flange bolts to loosen and then tighten. The ever helpful picture of figure 40 on page 29 shows half of those bolts. When you have to do it, you'll know why. You can't take a picture of the other 3 bolts, maybe two of them, the backmost bolt on the right side as you face table is literally impossible to get to. You will need a really long, really thin tool to get back there and turn it the 1/32 of an inch....over and over and over and over and over and over, align the table and tighten, over and over and over and over and over and over. That's a design flaw, IMHO, there must be a better way.

My only other gripe is the casting of the blade guide assembly. Page 26, figure 33, instructs you on adjusting the blade guide bearings. There should be a warning associated with step 3 where it tells you to loosen the locking cap screw. You have to make sure the screw is in the threads at the rear of the guide shaft bracket that holds the two guide bearings. Why? Because if you don't and you turn the cap screws for the alignment..... That's what I did.

To be fair, I imagine a lot of bandsaw pro's are shaking their heads about that. How could you be so stupid? Well, now I know.... Buuuuuuuut, the casting of that metal piece and the rest of the blade guide parts is not iron but some odd aluminum alloy that appeared quite brittle at the snap point...looked like fused gray sand. If it needs to be somewhat flexible there, then it should be aluminum or tin or some other soft metal rather than whatever it actually is.

Contacted the really helpful folks at support, new part in 5 days (weekend interfered)...working bandsaw! And I haven't cut off any fingers yet either!

I also liked that you can rewire the motor to convert it to 220 should the occasion arise. Very, very nice.

So now it's off to a Wood class to learn how to use it properly before I hurt myself. ;-)

Great saw 7/11/2017

This is my first bandsaw and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long. I ordered the saw and extension kit at the same time. Setup took me a few hours. My only complaint is the blade that comes with it is pretty much garbage from the beginning. Once I upgraded blades it was great.

Excellent saw! 7/5/2017

Excellent saw! My only complaint is there needs to be better set up instructions for the initial set up of the saw.

David S
Great product and excellent value 7/4/2017

Everything about this saw is quality right down to its stand. You can't go wrong buying one of these for your shop, and look around you won't find a 14" bandsaw of this quality and features at a better price. I expect to get many years of service from this fine piece of machinery.

Awesome Bandsaw!!! 7/4/2017

Although a small snafu occurred with the shipment (no fault of Grizzly) I got my saw a day later than expected but still earlier than originally anticipated. WELL WORTH THE WAIT, let me tell you. Let me start by saying the quality of this bandsaw matches the price point. I built my own mobile base for it and had it in operation within a couple of hours. I had no help but I would advise if you can, get a helper. I am extremely pleased with this purchase. I had looked at the big box stores like HD and Lowes but didn't like the quality vs price point. I've had my fill of buying poor quality tools only to be frustrated and still having to spend even more money to get the end results I wanted so this was a no brainer from the beginning. I have no doubt my next quality tool will come from Grizzly. I haven't had to contact Grizzly for customer service but I don't foresee any problems with that based on other customer reviews. I look forward to many years of service from my new bandsaw. It's nice to know there's at least one company out there that gives you a high quality, well manufactured power tool for you hard earned money. Thanks Grizzly for being that company. I look forward to doing business with you again real soon!

Great bandsaw 7/3/2017

The saw is wonderful but almost too "pretty " to use

Jill K
A Little Disappointed 7/2/2017

This bandsaw is a good-looking one, but seems a little under-powered.
I had trouble get the blade tracking true, but a call to tech support took
care of that. The tech support guy was fantastic.

Truthfully, I wish I had not bought this saw. I need one, so I'll use this one, but I will be looking
for another one. Wish I could return it.

Peter K
7/2/2017

My initial reaction to the Grizzly bandsaw I bought is positive. I need to use it more before I can write a detailed opinion.

Really nice bandsaw 7/2/2017

Works perfectly. Easy assembly with great instructions. A very high quality machine.

Awesome sauce 6/5/2017

A tool I really needed for my rustic cedar furniture projects. Prompt delivery. Heavy solid construction.

6/2/2017

Bought this saw to replace an old Menard's brand saw. Every aspect of this is better than the old one. The dust collection port is not perfect but is better than nothing. I am very satisfied with the purchase.

Better than great product 6/1/2017

I bought this bandsaw about 4-5 months ago. I have had several bandsaws that cost over twice what this one did but I have never had a better machine. This saw has everything updated and runs great, cuts accurately and I am only on my second blade. I use this saw nearly every day and it does anything I need doing. I used it in place of my chop saw and my table saw because it is so convenient. Great too and the 30th Anniversary model is the greatest.

Brian S
Excellent bandsaw, great value! 2/6/2017

This is a well designed, precision bandsaw.
I'm very happy with it and it works smoothly with plenty of power with all woods including thick hardwoods.
I also bought the resaw fence options and it cuts clean and straight for resaw usage.
The Wolf blades work well too.
I like the adjustment features, although the ball bearing guides are a bit finicky to get just right and tend to make a lot of noise if not adjusted to spin with the right blade positioning. They are pretty noisy and get jammed up if not cleaned regularly.
All in all, one of my favorite tools in my shop.

Good Product 1/30/2017

I got this as a gift from my wife and have used it for some resawing and a few small decorative projects. All worked well except that one of the blade support bearings was bad from the git-go and had to be replaced. Just a simple call to Grizzly an a brief discussion had a replacement bearing set on the way. No problems since then.

Quality bandsaw 1/29/2017

Shipping was quick, but as usual, the packaging was damaged in shipment. Luckily nothing inside was damaged.
I also got the riser and mobile base at the time of purchase. Two must have items for me.
Like others have suggested, the saw blade that comes with it is crap. Okay for set up, (and that is pushing it!) but not good for real sawing.
Bought a couple of timberwolf blades, a 105" - 1/4-6 TPI for standard work, and a 105" 1/2-3 TPI for resaw. (105" blade is used with a riser)
What a difference the timberwolf blade makes!!! cuts 3/4" plywood like butter. I agree with others, replace the blade when you get the saw.
The only reason I can think of for using the blade that comes with the saw, is so you can appreciate what a difference a real blade makes after you replace the blade with a quality one.
Converted the saw to 220v while putting it together. very easy to do. (I think the saw runs much better on 220v.)
As some has suggested, putting the saw on the stand is a two man job. If you care about your back at all, get help.
For first time buyers, plan on spending time setting up the saw properly. read up on it and watch videos. As with any bandsaw, the saw will not function well if poorly setup.
My wife loves the bear. I love the saw, so I guess we are both happy.

1/27/2017

Great saw! Easy to work with and has enough power for most work applications.

Great product! 1/27/2017

Purchased this about one and half months ago. We added the 6" riser and so far this machine is awesome! Use it mostly for our wood lathe projects. Only setback was no hardware came for the base. We purchased it locally.

Great value in a bandsaw 1/27/2017

Excellent bandsaw. Once I got it set up and adjusted it cut with great precision. Runs nice and quiet. Great finish but it attracts dust.

Wonderful saw 1/27/2017

I purchased my saw about 2 months ago. It has been a joy to use! It is an excellent saw easy to adjust and use. The videos are excellent to assist in putting it together and initial adjustment.

1/27/2017

Great product and quality. would recommend to others.

very good 1/26/2017

Seems pretty good so far. Easy to assemble and cuts hardwood with no problems.

WORKS NICE AND QUITE.
Easy to assemble but requires some help to put the top assembly on.
The adjustment directions are necessary to get it to work properly but they are required to get proper operation.
The videos on the site are also good and clear and easy to follow.

Great saw. Was easy to assemble with good instructions. Love my saw. 1/26/2017

Great saw and easy to assemble. Would recommend to anyone.

great saw 1/26/2017

this is a great saw after you get it set up there is no drifting and cuts straight easy to set up instructions are easy to read

This saw is great 1/26/2017

This has been a great saw. Came with all the accessories to make using it easy.

1/26/2017

I like everything about this saw. Wish it came with a light attached.

Exactly What I Wanted 1/26/2017

Very happy with the quality of the product, simple assembly, and great support for the two times I called about adjustments.

Isa S
Great Value 1/26/2017

Very happy with this saw's power and features. Dust collection isn't very efficient. Dust piles up at the opposite end from the dust port. This is my third piece of equipment from Grizzly and every one of the shipments have been damaged to the point where I needed to replace a part or bend something back to its original shape to get the right fit. Grizzly should consider changing freight company.

Awsome saw 1/26/2017

I've had this saw a month now and love it. It has been on my wish list for quite awhile. So when it came up on sale, I figured now is the time.
It arrived in a timely manner, no damage. I was surprised at how heavy it was. Easy to assemble and adjust. The next thing I think I will
purchase is the riser block kit and taller fence. I had never resawed before and with this saw and the correct blade it's a snap. I think this saw will last forever.

Extremely happy with this bandsaw. 1/26/2017

Well made product. Arrived on time & set up was easy. Only downside is the color!! Gloss black is pretty but very hard to keep dust free.

worth every penny 1/26/2017

shipped early, best hardware seen. need adjusting but fine after a month.

Leon L
Great Saw 1/26/2017

Never had a saw like this before. It was somewhat easy to set up and adjust, just follow instructions. I viewed the video on Grizzly site and it helped me walked through each adjustment. Love it!

Perfect saw, great value 1/26/2017

Could not be happier with this bandsaw.
I understand why shipping is so high, but honestly, it prevents me from buying all Grizzly tools.

Shop upgrades 1/26/2017

So glad to finally get a great band saw for my shop.

August P
A sweet saw 1/26/2017

This is my first bandsaw and I could not be happier. The anniversary edition has a very nice paint job and attractive logo. I have already did a number of projects where I have needed to resaw and have had no issues at all. When I bought this I never thought I would max out on the height of the resaw, but nearly got there with my third project and am seriously thinking about getting the extension kit before I buy more blades. The instructions and videos are a great help in setting up and maintaining the saw. It runs very smooth and a lot quieter than I expected. I look forward to many years of use.

Excellent professional grade product 1/26/2017

Very professional product cuts with precision.
I was even able to redraw 1/4 pieces out of 6" logs. Great investment will get passed on to my kids 40 years from now

1/26/2017

Great machine...definitely would add the riser block to give you those additional 6 inches of ripping. Works really well and was able to fine tune its running without any problems!!

Example: Great Product!! 1/26/2017

So far so good 1/26/2017

If set up properly it'll work like a charm especially if you buy a better blade.

Great saw 1/26/2017

I bought this saw after reading lots of reviews and have been very pleased. No complaints at all, completely satisfied, quality machine not. I like the adjustments and the ease of adjustment

A Great Machine 1/26/2017

This bandsaw is a terrific value. The fit and finish are superlative. We're a professional custom cabinet shop, and this machine is going to do everything we are ever going to require of it.

Michael D
Great bandsaw at an excelent price. 1/26/2017

This is a great saw for the price. I've been using it to split bolts for violins and violas along with a ton of other things. It is a great addition to my workshop. Setup was easy, adjusting the bearings isn't as easy as much higher priced saws but once you have them fine tuned it cuts and tracks very well.
Mike D.

1/26/2017

My only issues are: one of the bearings does not spin, and the fence will shift if too much pressure is placed upon it.. To your credit, i have not called to rectify this issue.

My first band saw 12/2/2016

Received my first band saw today, I'm impressed with the finish and the overall quality of this saw, very simple to follow instructions, and no left over parts. I have not actually made saw dust yet, but have made a dry run, unit is smooth and very quite, will finish final adjustments tomorrow, and will follow up with update as to how the unit performs.

JoeBet
Well made 12/1/2016

This band saw is well made for a great price, and the customer and technical support are outstanding. I highly recommend this saw.

Tim
Fabulous customer service 11/24/2016

I did a lot of research before purchasing this saw. I have bought a number of Grizzly power tools, and have been very happy with them. However, this bandsaw had a very pronounced wobble, despite hours of adjusting. I went the advised route of contacting Grizzly tech support and endured over a month of frustration. The upper wheel had a very obvious eccentricity. Tech support sent me a second wheel, and I had the same problem. To make a long story short, tech support did not resolve the issue and insisted the unit be shipped back to them at great expense and hassle to me. Ah, but the story gets better........

Fortunately, I live 2 miles from the Bellingham headquarters. I walked i
