First thing the air/gravity thing is worthless. Upon first use the blade hits so hard it jambs and even with the feed running at crawl this happens. The fix is to add a set of springs to counter balance the arm. Once that was done the unit works just fine. I use it a lot and so far I am very pleased (after the mandatory fix)
The angle cut is very handy and fast to change and I extended the stop gauge rods to 30 inched each way so multiple cuts are accurate and easy.
As with almost all China made products they work fine but require a tweak or two to actually work.
I would buy another when the time comes and would tweak the same so it works.
This is a great saw for the money! To get a saw with miter cutting ability for this price is unheard of! Very well built and works great so far! I've only had the saw for a couple of weeks but I've used it a bunch and it seems very well built! So far I am very pleased! Highly recommend!
I already own some Grizzly wood working tools so I was pretty sure the quality was there. I purchased the G9742 about a month ago and have cut small and thick pieces and am very pleased.
Check out this cut, 1 1/4" X 5 3/4" steel completed in 18 minutes, not an industrial saw but I didn't pay an industrial saw price either. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10208642989458239&set=a.1163021521788.2023614.1415368863&type=3&theater
I bought this a dew months back and it works quite well once you've worked out all the nuances, i.e.- squaring blade, fine tuning valves, etc. One gripe in particular is that the swivel does go from 45 degrees all the way to 60 degrees on the other side of zero but you can't cut opposite angles without moving the base clamp to the other side of the machine. That probably sounds like nonsense, but trust me, it is an issue. You can swing anywhere from 0-60 or 0-45 but you can't swing from 45 in one direction to 60 in the other direction without relocating the clamp. It would end up cutting into itself. Other than that, it works fine.
I bought the to build a welding cart and future metal projects. Would recommend you change the included blade for more accurate and faster cuts. The cart required cuts of 1.5 and 1 inch steel tubing along with 1/4 inch plate. All 45 and 90 degree cuts were accurate. Cut speed was not painfully slow in my opinion even with a slow down feed rate when using the saw for the first few cuts. While a chop saw will be faster, I would rather have the accuracy of the grizzly bandsaw. If I were to make a few suggestions for modifications, they would be the following.\r\n\r\nMetal Vise Adjustment- The Allen screw for the handle that attaches to the acme screw which adjusts the distance between the metal vise. Please redesign to have the screw go through the front of the acme screw. It seemed to come loose if you had to open and close the vise jaws for multiple cuts.\r\n\r\nVise Jaws - Why don't you make the front and back sides of the jaws the same height. This would allow the jaws to hold for example two 1.5 inch square tubes for a 90 degree cuts at the same time. \r\n\r\nAll in all this was a very worthwhile purchase. It it a good value for the price.
