Very happy I got it!! Very happy I got it!! No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Well I finished putting it together yeaterday and tunning it up. It went quite well. I did use the stock blade first. Figured might as well use it for a bit. I put the 1” on it a timberwolf. My first cut was on a small 2×4 to check things for alignment. So for the big test. I took a piece of oak 2×6. I took a 1/2 off of it measured it great cut. Took that piece down to 1/4”, still a good cut. Then took it a little farther took that piece down to 1/16” Same great cut. Now I just need to figure where to put into my shop. I will post pic’s of the new arrangment of the shop when I get it done. Thanks again for all the info that you gave me to make this purchase.

I have had this model saw with a mobile base for two years. I can cut 1/16” veneers with it.

Even though I have been pretty happy with the Grizzly blades I bought at the same time, I am currently waiting on delivery of a Wood Slicer blade from Highland WW.

I was never a fan of resawing or making veneers when I owned a HF import 14” bandsaw, but this saw makes the process much easier and the end product much more reliable. After carefully adjusting the guides, I haven’t had issues with drift, blade flutter, or bowing. There is sufficient adjustment in blade tension to get nice straight cuts. I did attach a taller face to the fence.

Mobile bases are great accessories for a small shop. I have mobile bases on all my machines and on my maple bench. Occasionally I have to move nearly everything to work on my motorcycle.

I recommend this saw. Great performance for the money.

I purchased an adjustable mobile base from Rockler (actually three ‘cause they were on deep dish discount that day). One each for my table saw, band saw and bench.

Widdle I got the Shop Fox base model # G7314Z.

Steven In the instructions they tell you how to do it without picking the whole thing up. Taking my time I was able to get put togther all by myself. It was tough, I wouldn’t do that again.

The saw comes with the deluxe resaw fence. It is cast. And it has a resaw attachment of alunimun.

I see I misunderstood the last question. I had a friend help me tip it up on a 2X and jockey the base underneath the saw. It is a heavy machine.

Look at the openings in the cast iron wheel they say “Shop Fox” all over the place
