Grizzly Band Saw G0513x2 No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Just purchased the go513×2, picked it up myself at the Muncy store as I only live an hour away, be prepared as it comes almost fully assembled, bring a lot of rope, the guys in the loading dock very helpful, as they laid it down on it’s spleen for me.

Also purchased the shop fox mobile base, and listened to a few friends, and purchased the timberwolf blades.
I have owned a lot of band saws, as I do a lot of re-sawing, but I have to admit, this one put a smile on my face. Cutting 1/8” vaneers is like a hot knife through butter with the timberwolf 3/4” 3 tooth blade. I’ll be putting it throughy the paces over the next few weeks so I’ll let you know.

Grizzly makes great tools. I recently got the G0555 14” model and I have been very impressed with it. I have done some resawing with good results. Your bigger saw should be able to handle just about any project you take on. Good luck with it.

I just got the exact same saw. It is unbelievable. Like you said, veneers are a breeze.

What’s the latest on your Grizzly bandsaw? Has it lived up to your expectations?

I have this saw being delivered before the end of the week. I will post a review once it is setup and running. I took the advice i found here on LJ and already ordered a WoodSlicer blade for it.

I’m considering buying this saw. How painful is changing the blade?

Whether it is just a simple blade swap, or changing blades and retuning the saw, I have found both to be very easy. I previously had an old Craftsman 12” and changing blades and tuning on that SUCKED. I can swap out a blade with no tuning in about a minute or so. If it involves retuning the saw, such as resetting the table/fence to match the actual blade cut, adjusting all the rollers, etc. it’s less than 10 minutes.

And, I swear by the Woodslicer blades from Highland Woodworking. My partner in the shop has a Powermatic 12” bandsaw, and has a carbide blade for it, and while it might last longer, it costs 5 times as much and doesn’t cut any better….and also takes 4 times as wide a kerf.

Also, he has had about 4 parts break on the power matic so far and he has considerably less hours on his machine.

The grizzly is an awesome machine.

Have your say...
