Hey Guys, Well i finally got the new G0555 setup yesterday. Had a little problem with the shipping on this(they said that the shipping company had lost the saw, How the heck do you lose a 200 pound box I don’t know but). I e-mailed grizzly and their customer support was very fast and helpful on this issue. Took about 2 hours to get it put together and add the riser block. Now I just got to get her tuned up and adjusted then it’s on like donkey kong. I am very pleased with how everything went together. The instructions were very good and all the hardware was there and very well marked. This is my first bandsaw so i still need to learn the technics of cuts with it (but should make some good sawdust HAHA). Overall I would give grizzly a 1 3/4 thumbs up for the saw and shipping process. Thanks for all the reviews on here that steered me towards this saw. now gotta get to slinging some wood. later

This saw is a nice addition to any shop. I have had mine for 4 or 5 years now and do not regret the purchase.

Congratulations on your new tool. A bandsaw is a very handy and useful tool. This tool can also be dangerous. Be very careful and always look to see where your fingers are going to end up at the finish of a cut.

Yo, sawdustcreator, I have had my G0555 for over 5 years now and I still love using it. You’ll be surprised how wide of a piece of wood you can resaw with just a 1/4” blade. I have a 1/4” x 10 pitch blade and I cut hard and soft wood, plastic, aluminum and rubber on it. I just resawed some 8 1/2” maple on it last night and it went through it like butter. You made a good choice on that bandsaw and you won’t be disappointed!

well resawed about 15 logs of hackberry and box elder this morning. Started with the blade that came with the riser block. I just got the 1/2” woodslicer the other day but i wanted to try the stock blade first just to see what kind of difference there was. MAN the difference is freakin night and day. Have not tried the timber wolf blades yet but 4 thumbs up for the woodslicer. Thanks for all the help on this sight guys. I have learned a ton of good info from you guys. See ya Keep the sawdust coming baby.

The OEM Grizzly blades don’t cut any better, and don’t cut any worse, if they’re put on upside down OR backward

;-)

The WoodSlicer was a good call!

I have this saw as well and LOVE it… Will be ordering the riser block soon once I wear out my last Timberwolfe blade. Hate to waste it before it becomes useless from the size requirement change with the riser. I’ll have to try the wood slicer blade people talk about on here soon. You enjoy this once you get it tuned it will cut well!

Congrats on the new saw. I’m jealous. I’ve been thinking about getting one of those myself to replace my little Ryobi. You’ve got exactly the saw and setup that I’d love to have. Maybe someday—soon.

I have had mine for 1 year now, and I have the same model except I bought the “Extreme” series of this saw. Closed cabinet, tall fence, 1/2 hp stronger. I love it! It will serve you well. It resaws like a beast and makes small little boxes too.
