- Grizzly G0513X2 17" Bandsaw 2HP w/Cast Iron Trunnion
- Brand: Grizzly | Category: Bandsaws
I can’t really offer a great review because this is actually the first band saw I’ve ever used, literally. After reading the reviews on this web-site I was sold on this saw, There’s one that cost about 200 dollars more that has a brake and a shopfox type base. I also took the advice and ordered a Woodslicer blade from Highland woodworking. I can’t express enough how amazing that woodslicer blade seems. The Woodslicer made me go from “This is cool, I have a nice band saw”, to “Oh my, this is an amazing piece of machinery”. I actually turned and raised a eyebrow at the table saw and said “Wow you never made me feel this way”. I took it upon myself to attempt to run a 220 outlet, and I am still here to tell how easy it was!! Its quiet theres little to no vibration. did i mention the extra tall re-saw fence and 12 inches of re-saw capacity. Great machine!
