My setup and initial impressions of Grizzly GO513X2

My setup and initial impressions of Grizzly GO513X2

03-17-2018 01:59 AM by Munson01 | 5 comments »

So this is my first post on here. I’ve been on here awhile, just lurking. For a few years I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a bandsaw, it’s the only big power tool I was lacking. After some research on here and a few other sites, I decided on the Grizzly 17” saw. Ordering it was pretty painless. I was a little put off with the initial delivery process. I ordered it through Amazon. I’ve ordered a few other large power tools through amazon, and I was always immediately asked the day I wanted...

Laguna 14-12 Short & Sweet

Laguna 14-12 Short & Sweet

03-08-2018 09:25 PM by Andybb | 4 comments »

For some reason I’m not bright enough to figure out how to add a second episode on a blog so I’ll just post this separately. Well, finally got around to opening and assembling today. Can’t really say I had any issues. After watching and reading everything on this saw for months I knew what documented issues I had seen so I was on the lookout. I saw none of them. Here was the process.1. Assemble while following the Laguna videos. (Per a video I saw I loosened by 1/2 t...

Laguna 14|12 - Great Saw with fantastic customer service to back it up

Laguna 14|12 - Great Saw with fantastic customer service to back it up

01-20-2018 06:35 AM by BoardsByBullard | 16 comments »

Late in December I started to look into a few options for improving the shop, I was tossing ideas around getting a few more Festool toys and I realized I was quickly outgrowing my Craftsman 1hp 14” band saw. I was looking for a reasonably priced saw with more power and I saw that my local Rockler was not only running a special for 10% off Laguna products but that they also had the 14|12 in stock. I was strongly considering the 220v 14bx as a solid option but realized that the break was ...

Timbery Sawmill M100 Electric

Timbery Sawmill M100 Electric

12-30-2017 09:06 PM by Rebarn | 9 comments »

We have had our Timbery M100 Electric Sawmill for 5 years now. We have run this machine with a lot of respect…and not really “hard” by comparison to full time sawyers. But we have put this saw to work to make money in our shop and it has performed well for our needs of resawing large beams into lumber and mantels. It’s an electric mill, which is exactly what I needed for our shop. It has a 5HP electric motor. We have an 18 foot bed on the saw. The housing for t...

Laguna - Great Product!

Laguna - Great Product!

We have had our Laguna bandsaw for about two years now. We use it mostly for resawing medium to small stock. We use the Resaw King carbide tip blade. All I can say is that this is a great saw and the Resaw King blade is remarkable!

A lot of saw for the money

A lot of saw for the money

Hey everybody, I’ve been lurking on here for quite a while and decided I might as well make my first post. I’ve been making a bunch of small boxes the last year or so and have been using 1/4” ply for the bottoms. I’ve been wanting to start using solid wood but 3/4” is way too bulky for that in my opinion. Also I don’t want to plane away 2/3 of a plank into chips to get to 1/4”. My conclusion to this is the get a small band saw and a planer so I ca...

my experience with Grizzly g0555Lx

my experience with Grizzly g0555Lx

09-10-2017 05:22 PM by paulsss | 10 comments »

I purchased the Griazzly and was excited when it arrived and was set-up per instructions. I wanted this model because it ranged 1/8” to 3/4” blades. I do alot of smaller pieces, so having the 1/8” was a large part of making final decision. That’s when problems started piling up. I could not get the 1/8” blade to track, even after the tech support told me to take sandpaper to a perfectly good tire.The manual clearly says all calibrations are done at the shop...

Laguna customer service

Laguna customer service

I have had the Laguna 14/12 bandsaw for just over a year and have had no issues with it. Saturday I was cutting some wet wood into turning blanks and burned up the drive belt. Monday morning I called Alex at Laguna customer service to order a new on, expecting to pay for it. Alex asked if I had registered it and the date of purchase. I had and was 4 days over the 1 year warranty. To my surprise they covered the belt and shipping. That sure did make my day !
