Grizzly G0555

Grizzly G0555

11-12-2011 04:19 AM by mushmouse | 48 comments »

After reading so many positive reviews for the G0555 I went ahead and purchased one. I always seem to be the one in a hundred who gets the lemon. I have limited experience with bandsaws and am hoping it’s just a setup error on my part, and that someone may have some insight they can offer me. I have spoken to Grizzly tech help several times but find their responses inadequate. First the trivial issues (at least I think they are trivial). 1.) Can’t adjust the guide beari...

One star says too much

Here’s the scoop back in July I broke the dust hood ...

My New Grizzly Bandsaw

My New Grizzly Bandsaw

10-13-2011 02:17 PM by Alongiron | 22 comments »

I am in love! I have never reviewed a product and am not rerally sure how to do this but I do have to say that this product has changed and inhanced my woodworking so much. I have 2 blades that I work with; a 1/4 and 3/4 Highland Woodworking Wood Slicer blades that are amazing. I ordered the riser for this saw as well so I do use 105” blades. The setup is so easy. From the table to the fence to the miter gauge, it is so easy to square things up and get perfect cuts. The dust collection ...

My first lathe.

My first lathe.

10-04-2011 03:42 PM by joey bealis | 1 comment »

To start this off i want everyone to know that this is my first lathe and the only one i have ever turned on. Also its the only one i have seen in person. I left the lathe with dust on it so i would not get ragged for having a unused shop. As per request from a patron on this LJ’S i waited a few months after receiving lathe before doing a review. I have turned close to one hundred projects on this lathe so far. Now for the review lets start with a little information on the lathe. Mot...

Initial impression is that this Drill Press Table is okay

Initial impression is that this Drill Press Table is okay

I added this Grizzly H7827 Drill Press Table to my Ridgid DP1550 drill press. I’ve read other reviews that it’s not the best drill press out ther but since I couldn’t figure out what I wanted in a table I decided to spend the $45 or so to try this one and use it for a while to figure out what I want in a drill press table. Plus, the hardware that comes with this table would have cost a bit if I’d bought it separately. I figured if nothing else I’d at least have s...

Grizzly H3051 Riser Block Kit (for G0555) but also fits Ridgid BS1400

Grizzly H3051 Riser Block Kit (for G0555) but also fits Ridgid BS1400

09-17-2011 01:00 PM by David Grimes | 18 comments »

I recently purchased and assembled a Ridgid 14” floor model bandsaw (the BS1400). I had also ordered and received the 6” riser kit from Grizzly that is made for their G0555 14” bandsaw, but also fits several of the other 14” bandsaws: Ridgid, Craftsman, Cummins, Summit, and others. It ran about $80 shipped, which is half what the Ridgid kit costs (if you can get one). This kit is rated 5 stars by 19 of 22 reviewers on Amazon, with the other three 4’s and 3...

Best Bang for the buck.

Best Bang for the buck.

I received this router table with stand for $140 bucks delivered to my door. I was hesistant because there are not a lot of reviews on this table and the low price, but I needed a simple table to get some craft fair projects completed. I ended up being competely impressed when I opened the box. It came to my door in fantastic condition about 3 days after I placed my order. Assembly was very easy and straightforward. I took about an hour and only had 3 different bolts for assembly. 95 perce...

I like it but need to learn its quirks.

I like it but need to learn its quirks.

This review is very long and specific. If you’re in a hurry I suggest reading the cons for both the planer and jointer, the finish quality cheat sheet, and the verdict and coming back to the review later. The first thing I did was put it on the HTC3000 mobile base. The base fits as well as I expected but could use better wheel bearings as this thing is extremely heavy. My 135 lb. self can move it on my own with some hard pushing though. After I got off all the shipping grease I c...

First new Band Saw

First new Band Saw

08-14-2011 10:53 PM by MarktheWoodButcher | 12 comments »

The whole Experience. Including my lack of it. I had been struggling with my first band saw an old Craig’s list 1/2 hp 14” Delta on resawing and log sawing for the last 4 years. Since it only cost me $50 how can I complain. But about week ago the switch broke and some of the magic smoke got out of the motor so I decided to move a little further up town and ordered a Grizzly G0513P 17” 2 HP Bandsaw, Polar Bear Series . Four days from phone ordering to the UPS truck pul...
