Hey Guys and Gals,

Just thought that I would do a little tool gloat… I pulled the trigger on a Grizzly GO555Lanv 14 inch Bandsaw. I bought the riser kit for it too. So now I am joining the big league with this.

This is how it arrived.

The riser kit.

the box over 200lbs

Almost done


I love the “Griz” The inaugural cut was made wit ha large piece of osage orange

Would LOVE to upgrade mine but my trigger is pretty rusty. I bet this will really open up a lot more avenues to travel in the shop now that you have this. Great addition. Have fun!

Congrats on the new bandsaw! I have their 17” so I know yours will be a real performer. After you use it for a few months how about a review? Share with us how it is preforming and any problems.
