Surprised me! 03/15/2019 10:38:40 PM

I researched the benchtop bandsaws over and over and over again. Skil, Wen, Harbor Freight, Porter Cable, Ryobi & others. Grizzly came out on top. Recieved it today. Easy assembly & adjustments! Thoroughly satisfied!

Very nice little saw... 03/10/2019 5:33:21 PM

This saw is pretty good, and much better than its competitors. It has been working very well for my needs, which is mostly thin plywood... my only complaint is minor, the plastic insert that goes around the blade is not flush with the table so it was pulling the front edge of the material being cut down and then it gets hung up on the lip. I had to shim it up to get it flush. Once that was done the saw was pretty much perfect. Kind of silly that the probably cheapest part of the saw doesnt do its job because its incorrectly engineered.

Nice Saw 03/06/2019 11:59:40 AM

Saw has plenty of power for a smaller bandsaw. After very little adjustments and a little engineering I was able to achieve accurate cuts. Ive seen outher units like this one at a cheaper price. Purchased this saw thinking it would be a little heavier and better built. After receiving and using it I dont think I made a great choice price wise. I own many types of Grizzly equipment and always felt it was worth that extra cost maybe not so much now time will tell. In a nut shell this is a nice little bandsaw thats built well but over priced in my small opinion.

First band saw 03/01/2019 2:54:21 PM

This is my first bandsaw and I am very happy with its performance. I have made resaw cuts, cross cuts and curved cuts. The saw has handled all cuts very well and cleanly. With one exception, a small knot knocked the blade off its wheels, but I was able to get it right back on and continue using it and its worked well since. Like most reviews have stated the position of the light leaves something to be desired, but lighting is not an issue in my shop anyhow. Im very happy that I made this my first bandsaw, and if I ever upgrade, Ill almost certainly make it a grizzly.

So far, so good. 02/03/2019 5:16:50 PM

So far, so good. I received the unit about a month ago, just before leaving for Australia and New Zealand for a couple of weeks. That is why I am late with this review.
Setup was relatively easy, except that I did not expect to do much alignment of the wheels but it was fairly straightforward. I have several projects lined up for the saw and will get around to them in a few weeks. Requesting a review of a product days after receiving it does not give one much chance to see how well it works. You should send out another request for review 6 months or so after shipping the unit to give the user an opportunity to really check it out and see how it works and lasts.
Like many others who reviewed this saw, the positioning of the lamp is poor but relatively easy to reposition. It would be easier if the outside nut was not part of the whole lamp assembly. Then it would be far easier to adjust it so it gets the light turned so you can see the cut line.
Nice looking unit.

Big performance little package. 02/03/2019 1:44:28 AM

What a fantastic little saw. Never seen one quite like it, full adjustability like a big saw but bench top and $200, cant beat it. Its not big, its not a 1 HP motor, but it also doesnt set you back $800 and take up floor space. Its all about what you need...

Good saw 02/01/2019 5:40:31 PM

Bought this bandsaw a few weeks ago for hobby type use. Set up is easy with minimal assembly required, and the blade tracked accurately right out of the box and still does. Cuts through 2 1/2 oak with no problem. After reading reviews of other benchtop saws in the same category I am glad I spent the extra $50 for this one.

Solid entry-level bandsaw and great customer service 01/27/2019 8:35:08 PM

The saw arrived packaged well with a good manual. It was easy to set up and get going. I am no expert on bandsaws but the alignment and bearing setup appears to be good. I have cut wood and thin aluminum with it and am very pleased with the performance. I like all the extra features that it has like tilting table, sliding miter, fence, work light, and push stick with a handy hanger on the back. I have my resting on my workbench and I have not felt the need to clamp it down because the rubber feet keep it securely in place. I have another benchtop bandsaw at work that was about $50 less and I am much happier with the Grizzly. I am very happy with the purchase. Keep up the good work, Grizzly!

Great small bandsaw 01/11/2019 11:59:22 PM

I am highly pleased at the quality of this saw. Comparably priced saws are lacking features like the bearing guides and fence. The fence is surprisingly solid. The only issue I've had was during setup there was a snap ring that was not fully seated and luckily I noticed it before turning on the unit. So I had to get my snap ring pliers out which was not supposed to be part of the setup. I haven't put a dial indicator on anything but it has very little vibration. I have sawed very thin slices, fairly tight turn radii, and up to 3.5 inches thick and it doesn't hesitate. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a small bandsaw.

Nice small bandsaw 01/05/2019 2:56:40 PM

So far this saw has been excellent. I have been holding out for a larger 14" saw for a long time. This will sure not replace a larger unit but it got me into the game and its portable so that's a big plus. My space is limited and most of my projects are actually pretty small, plus this saw was on sale. This is my first wood bandsaw and I wanted some of the features that other saws didn't have. Looks like I made the right choice by getting it. And yes like others have said, the light is a bit challenged. Looks like it was relocated on the newer saw.

A local FIRST Robotics Team [FRC4362] builds their robot in my Shop. They could really use a bandsaw to help with some of the aluminum and plastics parts that they make during the build season. This tool is a great fit; good price and sized for the work that they do. I am sure it will get a good workout this build season. AlanP

I like this saw 01/03/2019 6:27:52 PM

Nice saw! It woks very well for smaller projects. It will resaw green wood up to 2 1/2" with a 3/8" blade, if you take your time. It has great features. The light is a great idea, but it won't hold it's position very well. I will find a solution. Annoying, but not a deal breaker.

Good product, could use a few improvements 01/03/2019 3:39:48 PM

Great little band saw. Only problem is that the light is on the wrong side of the saw. For what it is it does a great job and the price was reasonable. The shipping was sedum, got it two days after I ordered it, a full day ahead of the expected delivery date. For the price point, its a great value.

Finally got a great benchtop bandsaw. 01/03/2019 2:47:57 PM

I finally got a great benchtop bandsaw. The others I had did not have roller bearing blade guides and the blade would wander after melting the plastic guides. What a difference they make. Roller bearings rule! The light just makes it to the infeed side and I use a stiff wire to hold it in place. I do wish there was a place to hold the Allen wrenches onboard. Otherwise a great product.

A very satisfied customer.

Good product 12/03/2018 12:08:39 AM

Getting the table and fence trammed in was a little difficult. Found that the T square miter gage is made out of plastic. A aluminum miter gage would be so much better and squaring it to 90 degrees to the blade is hard to do. Found that the height adjust for the blade was binding and had to take it apart to free it up. Don't get me wrong I would still buy this band saw. It's like any machine you have to tweek it to get things just so, so. The light is worthless. When you turn it on and shine it on the work it shines in our eyes. They mounted the light on the wrong side of the band saw. It should have been mounted on the front so it shines away from you onto the work

Why Did I Wait ? 12/02/2018 2:44:58 PM

After more than twenty five years of working with a 57 3/4 inch three wheeler that broke bands almost weekly , I bit the bullet and got one of these Grizzley 9 inch bench top bandsaws . WHAT A GREAT LITTLE SAW !
I comparatively shopped for hours looking at all the brands on the market and was disappointed with the amount of pot metal and plastic parts that were the usual. I don't remember exactly what it was that brought me to Grizzley , but I'm glad I looked .
A little taller than my previous Saw and therefore taking some time to get used to , but MUCH BETTER BUILT , and a pleasure to use.
A comprehensive owners / operation manual written obviously by English speaking technicians made set up a breeze . A,couple of MINOR and SIMPLE adjustments and t
Take my word for it , if your are looking at the two hundred dollar and less options for a small shop bandsaw , THIS is the tool you need to purchase . I'm COMPLETELY SATISFIED .

I was looking for a replacement of one that recently stopped working and needed repairs more the the cost of a replacement. I happen to recently purchase some repair parts for a Grizzlr belt sander that I Owen and have used for over 15 years. So I got to looking around on Grizzly web site and found this model bandsaw and check a couple of reviews and ordered it and have already used this on a couple of projects and it has fit exactly what I wanted.

Great little saw 11/18/2018 3:39:09 AM

I bought this Grizzly 9" Benchtop Bandsaw about a month ago after looking at various smaller band saws. I was especially pleased at the ease of the setup, many of the other saw reviews had some really bad stories about the difficulty of initial setup and swapping between blades or wood size. The Grizzly saw was very easy to set up and spot on to boot! Now maybe I'm not as precise as some of the gentlemen in those reviews but I did resaw four red oak boards down to 1/8" and didn't have any problems. Yes it definitely is slower on this unit than on the more powerful big brothers but this unit has made me very happy. I have already made two Christmas door ornaments and plan on doing much more. If you are thinking of getting a small (9 or 10 ") for light use this is a great choice.

The saw is well-designed and well-made for the price and should work well for my uses, however I want to complain about the work light. Ideally it should be mounted immediately above the blade and point down into the work. The light should have two sources with one on each side of the blade. The existing design has a flexible goose neck originating from the back of the housing but isn't long enough to reach all the way around to the front where the work is. I will modify this obvious afterthought to something more appropriate and have a fine bench saw.

I like this bandsaw! 09/13/2018 8:34:47 PM

For what it is, this thing has a lot of bells and whistles. I have only used it twice, but it saws twenty times faster than the saw I had used for 2 decades, plus with the guides being bearings,, , this thing saws straight, a new phenomenon to be experienced by me. Have not changed blade yet, but one lever to trip and keep blade setting sounds great. The light works well, takes small amount of table top space , Heavy enough to stay put, yet light enough to move easley. Keep in mind this a top of the line inexpensive saw, with great features, at a reasonable price. This is great for my general use, but if I were a dedicated wood worker or in business , i personally would opt for larger floor model. But i really like this saw ,which fits my needs and is so much better than what l had previously.

Excellent! Makes me wish I had gotten rid of my Ryobi years ago 07/06/2018 9:22:20 PM

How did I live with the Ryobi band saw so long? This Grizzly is smooth and has the power needed for my woodworking uses. No more trying hard to to make a clean cut on a vibrating table! The saw is sturdy and smooth. The fence is a nice added touch at this price point. I had to clamp a board on the table base of my old band saw. One improvement they could make is to make the flex arm on the light longer and stiffer. It does not come around enough and does not stay in place the way I would like it to.
