Grizzly G0555 Band Saw with Woodslicer Blade - Wow!

07-27-2009 01:21 PM by Greg Wurst | 14 comments »

I finally got to play with the new band saw, and wow what a difference a quality tool and blade make. I bought this primarily for resawing, and so far it has not disappointed. http://www.grizzly.com/products/g0555 The band saw came mostly assembled except for the base and table. It was really stuffed into the Styrofoam, and was a pita to get out. I had to tear the foam apart around the base to get it out. Otherwise, it went together easily. The riser block was easy to install, an...

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...

I bought this saw about 2 weeks ago, since then have used it quite a bit to aid in installing a hardwood floor as well as some other side projects. When researching bandsaws, one thing I noticed was that most of the reviews I’d been reading were 3-4 years old or older. B/c of this I figured I’d add mine here for a more current review. Perspective: I’m a “home hobbyist” meaning I do this stuff for fun in my spare time. Treat this review as such To start, I&...

I've got a problem with this saw

I've got a problem with this saw

08-09-2009 02:37 PM by 45acpbuilder | 19 comments »

It’s so darn quiet I’m afraid I’ll walk off and leave it running! I added a little flag to the tensioner so I won’t turn it on with the blade loose. Seems someone, Grizzly themselves maybe, could add this to their saws with out any problem. It’s just a bead chain tied to the tension lever and a 1/4” bolt tapped into the arm behind the switch so the tension lever lifts the flag so it blocks the start switch. The saw blade squealed when resawing so I ran ...

A nice bandsaw

A nice bandsaw

Grizzly calls this the “Ultimate” bandsaw. That’s a bold statement to live up to. I own many Grizzly tools and I’m very happy with all of them. This is a really good bandsaw but I can’t call it the Ultimate. There are a few changes that would push into the Ultimate category. First, I’m not that happy with the fence. It looks nice, but it does have a bit of play in it. When I clamp it down the far end will move sometimes. I have to keep a close eye o...

I am really impressed with this saw

I am really impressed with this saw

I received this saw about two weeks ago. My wife bought it for me as a father’s day gift. It was packed very well, and there were no parts missing. Set up was simple enough. Lifting it was quite a bit of work; as it is a very heavy piece of equipment. I tuned it up in a very short time and was really impressed how quiet it runs. I’ve been reading books and watching videos on bandsaws and it appears to have many features found on much more expensive saws. I think the quality...

Grizzly G0555LANV - 30 Year Anniversary Edition

09-04-2013 02:47 AM by JSB | 17 comments »

I bought the anniversary edition of the popular G0555. 100% pleased with this saw. Absolutely zero complaints. The fit and finish is flawless. The base is strong. All blade guide and table adjustments are easily adjusted. I can change a blade in about 30 seconds with the quick tension release. It has a blade tension gauge as well. 4” dust collection hose port in the lower rear works great. The motor is strong. I wrote a longer, picture filled article about the saw that you can read here

Wow what a saw!

Wow what a saw!

This was my first purchase from Grizzly Industrial. So far I have no complaints. I ordered the bandsaw on Friday and picked it up at the terminal this morning. The box only had to small damages to the cardboard, only on the outer layer of cardboard. I opened the box and everything was packed very nicely and tightly in styrofoam. I had to tilt the box on its edge to get the bandsaw out, I could not lift it out. I unpacked everything and inspected all the parts and the bolts and nuts. Al...

My New Grizzly Bandsaw

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 ...
