This was my first purchase from Grizzly Industrial. So far I have no complaints. I ordered the bandsaw on Friday and picked it up at the terminal this morning. The box only had to small damages to the cardboard, only on the outer layer of cardboard. I opened the box and everything was packed very nicely and tightly in styrofoam. I had to tilt the box on its edge to get the bandsaw out, I could not lift it out. I unpacked everything and inspected all the parts and the bolts and nuts. All parts were there and the bolts and nuts and washers were in small bags. The only thing I did not care for was the fence parts were in a carboard box in the bottom of the bigger box. The manual was clear and all parts fit nicely. I took my time and I had it together in about 3 hours. I do not rush putting machines together. I did callGrizzly and spoke to Tech support about how to adjust the blade because I never did it before and did not want to break anything, Took all of 3 minutes. I cleaned the table and applied T-9 to it. I made all the adjustments and readjusted the bearing rollers several times. I installed the fence and rails. I adjusted the fence to the blade and the table. I made a couple cuts on scrap wood and it cut nice. So far seems like a good investment. I will report more in a few weeks when I use it more.
