Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw grizzly g0457 14 inch resaw

After months and months of drooling over new bandsaws on the Grizzly site- I finally managed to find a good, used Grizzly G0457 on Craigslist. Gentlemen listed it for $693- said its hardly been used. It’s missing a few parts so I talked him down to $500 and I’ll just have to order replacements. I think I’m going to be pretty happy with it though- it’s a nice big, sturdy machine. It does have a little rust on the top too but I’ll figure out how to clean that up. Also need to rewire for 110 or add 220 to the garage… so once I get those things done I can post a review. :)

Congratulations! With the larger, stationary tools you cannot go wrong with Grizzly.

good score.

I had my own recently when local home depots phased out the dewalt dw735 13” planer. their “new lower price” was $280— $370 off. I can give my dad his first gen ryobi back now.
