G0513X2 17" Bandsaw

G0513X2 17" Bandsaw

07-02-2009 05:04 AM by Don K. | 37 comments »

This will be kind of a “Duel” review….One over the G0513X2 17” Bandsaw, and one over Grizzly’s customer service. I received the Bandsaw several weeks ago, but because I had been so busy….I did not have time to even un-crate it. It stood in the corner of my shop for about a week and a half before I could even open it up and start to put it together. I opened up the saw, looked it all over….no scratches,dents,blems etc..so we’re off to a goo...

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 b...

Well, I have finally used my saw enough to do a proper review for you.

You can ask A1Jim, Todd C., Lenny and a few others….I about drove myself and them insane trying to decide what saw to buy…at first I was looking at a Stee...

Grizzly G0453 15" Planer

Grizzly G0453 15" Planer

Well As I recently stated….I did some serious upgrades in the old shop in the last few weeks, bought a new cabinet saw, new band saw, new jointer and a new planer. This first review will be over the new G0453 15” planer. (actually my second review…the jointer was a few weeks ago) I did some serious thinking about which planer to buy….but decided to go with a new Grizzly since I have had such good luck with my Grizzly jointer. While I really wished I could have went ...

Hi, I’ve just received mu Grizzly G0513×2 band saw. I’ve selected it for it’s price, the reviews I could read on LJ and of course the free shipping the Grizzly is offering right now. Warning : please do not make the same mistake I did and call grizzly before you order your equipement because back order is pretty long. The Band saw came 90% assembled in a cradle and most of the assembly work consists of clean/install the cast iron table, install the fence and th...

Grizzly H7777 8" Dado Stack

Grizzly H7777 8" Dado Stack

04-26-2009 03:28 PM by Frostyjo | 9 comments »

After the recent reviews where various customer service centers have taken a beating, here’s one that has a happy ending. Last fall I was on the quest for a new dado set to go with my new saw. As a weekend hobbyist with Christmas approaching I couldn’t rationalize spending $200+ on a stack. After looking at several I narrowed it down to the Freud 208 and the Grizzly’s H7777 8” stacks. The deciding points that leaned me towards the Grizzly were price ($50), the chippers are full plates w...

Grizzly G0593 8" Jointer with Spiral Cutter-head

Grizzly G0593 8" Jointer with Spiral Cutter-head

04-26-2009 04:03 AM by Don K. | 34 comments »

This review is going to be a little different. (I am in a good mood)I decided that after years of doing it by hand, that it was time to buy a good jointer. As I have stated before, I am a little obsessive when it comes to buying a high priced tool. If it is something I can lay my hands on and look at, I usually have no problem just pulling the trigger and buying it. But when it comes to ordering a tool I have never seen/touched or used, and then giving the lady/man on the other end of the pho...

Grizzly G1014Z 6x48 belt sander with 9" disc

Grizzly G1014Z 6x48 belt sander with 9" disc

04-06-2009 11:56 PM by NY_Rocking_Chairs | 3 comments »

As I get more and more into the model making side of wood-working I find I need to do some quick sanding and holding the ROS while trying to sand a small piece was getting aggravating. So we stopped at the Grizzly showroom in Muncy, PA. They had both this sander and the smaller 4×36 belt sander. Needless to say the smaller one was out of stock and looked a little small and light for my needs, plus the G1014Z came with a stand. I was forced to wait 5 days before even unpacking it ...

I have to smile with all of the comedians out there….but keep your day jobs….Sorry about no pics, and the skimpy review, but I’ve been really busy getting my boat ready for the upcoming bass tournament season, and the first warm sun makes me run to the river and check lines…..lol I have taken a lot of shop pictures this week, and I just completed a japanese study table made with a tree that I cut down in my backyard last year, so for all of the bandsaw enthusiasts, ...

I have owned many bandsaws, this is the only bandsaw that has ever met my expectations. Just make sure you upgrade to the timberwolf blades, like night and day.
