I pulled the trigger on buying a new bandsaw today. I went ahead and got the Grizzly 14” 555X with riser. It took me a while to make the decision and even longer to actually hit the checkout button. Man that’s a lot of money.
Got the saw in on Monday and put it together that night. I have to say I am impressed. It is quiet, fast, easy to use and handles anything I have thrown at it so far. Even the setup wasn’t hard and I am a complete novice. Be sure to get a friend to help you lift it.
