Purchased after Christmas 2015 and used lightly for 6 weeks now. Delivery was fast and the saw is well packed in two substantial pieces of styrofoam. Setup took just over 45 minutes. Wheels were parallel and coplanar right out of the box. The lower blade guide has a tendency to rotate in its track as you tighten it so one bearing ends up higher than the other in relation to the blade. I used a screwdriver as a lever against the frame to minimize this and once tightened the lower blade guide stays in place. Top and bottom blade guide bearings are not eccentric but simply slide in and out once loosened. A square nut, in a track, on the rear of the guide keeps each in place when tightened. Fence is better than most for a small saw. Miter gauge is marginal -- no slop when in table. Slide is metal, the rest is plastic. LED light should have a longer flexible shaft so it can actually light up the work area. I angle it from the back side and get a little light onto the blade and cut line. Cutting hardwood spoon blanks has been much easier than with a Sears 9" bandsaw. The ball bearing blade guides make all the difference. The saw has good tracking with the included raker blade and cuts smoothly. Purchased a 3/8 Olsen 4 tpi blade but haven't installed it yet. Installed the saw on a Harbor Freight stand. Saw runs very smoothly and passes the nickel test.
I bought this saw after some deliberation. Needed a small bandsaw for my shop to prep knife scales so it didn't need to be very big. Came down to this saw and the Craftsman 10". Pretty much equal in a side by side, got to look at and put my hands on the Craftsman but not the Grizzly. But I have a couple of Grizzly products and they have served me well, plus it was on sale, so I ordered it. Saw came in a few days later and I was able to set it up this weekend. Unboxed it and quickly realized 2 things, 1 the top handle was broken in half and 2 no instruction manual ... But we got her figured out! Not much to put together anyway. Initial set up was pretty strait forward, got the table on and squared up, installed the fence, set the upper and lower blade guides and fired it up! Saw runs smooth and blade deflection was minimal. Sawed up a bunch of handle stock, mesquite, walnut, G-10 and krynite to see how it performed. The saw handled it fine.
So initial observation are
1. Not a bad little saw for the money!
2. Upper and lower ball bearing blade guides are a plus!
3. The fence is good. Once adjusted, locks in tight, has a good handle.
4. The light needs some work, it does an excellent job of lighting up the BACK side of the blade and your saw line, and casts a shadow across your line of sight. I would change the position of the light, either in front of or the left side of the saw or leave it off completely. I have magnetic base lights I use anyway, but if your gonna go through the trouble of putting it on the saw, might as well make it functional.Right?
For the money( less than $200.00) can't beat it. I'll repost another review after a few months and we'll see how it holds up.
I bought this saw about a month ago and have used it to cut 2" oak and 1/4" aluminum with a 1/8th inch blade. I was quite surprised at how it cut so effortlessly. I've it for several hours now and just love the way it cuts. I did have to do some alignment on the machine, to be expected. The machine is worth the price I paid. Its better than anything out there I've seen or used.
Purchased this saw for prepping bowl blanks to turn on my Grizzly lathe. Tool arrived in good condition, went together with no issues. I have cut 2" thick maple with no problem. My only issue would be the fairly useless light. The only way to use is to hook it over the knob on the end of the saw. It will not hold up and sags badly rendering it useless. I'm a professional woodworker, and have access to high end handsaws. For the price, I am very impressed with the performance and quality of this less than $200.00 machine.
Just recieved my new bandsaw today. After 20 years of getting by using only a scrollsaw, I am definitely going to enjoy this saw. The saw came well packaged. Instructions were ample. Setup was easy and straightforward. In 30 minutes or so I was trying the saw out on 2 and 1/4" dried white oak. The saw handled everything with no problem. Key to this, I think is correct setup, checking all the bearing adjustments, squaring the table and the fence and looking at a lot of youtube videos prior to purchase. Angle cuts were precise! I did need to adjust bearing clearances to begin with. Afterwards the saw ran with minimal vibration. In addition, the fence works well.This is a great value for a small shop, homeowner, tinkerer like me. The light is usable, but would be better if the flexible shaft/cord were about 3" longer. Then the light could be better focused toward the front of the blade cutting surface.
This saw works great, Grizzly has an amazing shipping department. I highly recommend buying your tools from this company.
This arrived quickly and was very easy to assemble. This is my first bandsaw so it took me a little time to get the tension and tracking figured out, but it's working awesomely now. If I buy a bigger one later on, it will most likely be another Grizzly!
This 9in bandsaw has to be the best benchtop bandsaw on the market, especially at this price point. Don't even mention this saw in the same breath as the 9in saws you see at the box stores- they are from two different planets. This is a high end saw scaled down, just like you're looking for. The design is very well thought out. The power switch is where you expect it to be, which oddly enough is not where most saws in this price range put it. The saw is solid and stable when cutting, without being bolted down. The work table is solid and adjustable for angled cuts. The included fence locks down tight and is adjustable for skew alignment. With very little setup and tuning, the saw was running true and making great cuts half an hour after I took it out of the box. It has all the adjustments you find on bigger, more expensive saws. The only minor quibble is that the work light comes out of the back of the saw. (Frankly, there's no other good place to mount it. The power switch and the light switch occupy all the real estate on the front between the access covers.) Thankfully the flexible neck is long enough to reach around as shown in the picture. Has it been an issue? Nope. Maybe one day when I have absolutely nothing else to do I'll remount the light. No, I won't. Because it works just like it is and I have better things to do. \r\n\r\nBuy with confidence.
I chose the Grizzly over other comparable saws because of the quality and extra features it comes with. Well worth the extra money.
This is my first Grizzly product and I am very satisfied with it. I did have an issue with the work light not working\r\nand it took 3 different attempts before it was finally corrected. Your techs that I spoke with were all very good\r\nto work with and helpful. There was apparently a wiring issue with the light and the LED driver, but the last light\r\nthat was sent to me works fine. Again, I am very satisfied with the product and enjoy using it.
This is one of the best benchtop band saws I have used. The quality is top notch and works well for smaller woodworking and art pieces I am working on. Highly recommend it. The only thing to make note of as I did not realize this myself as an amateur but the 9" bandsaw does not reflect the overall cutting height. The largest piece you can cut is 3 1/2" piece of wood.
My husband has had several bandsaws over the years, and asked for this one as a Christmas gift. For the money, it had several features he'd not had previously, and he is very happy with it.
After extensive reviews and looking over specs I found this to be well worth the money. A few months of use and I have only good things to say about its solid build quality and performance. My constructive criticism to grizzly is to remove or relocate the light attachment. Also the fence rail knobs need to be shortened to accommodate the swing of the bottom door.
I have set up the bandsaw, adjusted the saw following the directions, and used it to cut my first piece of thin wood.It cut beautifully. I am very pleased. I had waited a month for our electric co. to change the outlet to three pronged before i actually used the saw for that first cut. I am looking forward to the new catalog coming in the mail as promised by your email message.
