Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw grizzly g1012

So I’ve been looking for a bandsaw on CL for a while. There’s a guy selling a Grizzly G1012 18” bandsaw for $550. Seems to be in good condition. Anyone have experience with this saw? How good is the price?

Thanks,
Steve

It might be good… BUT I would pass. Its an modern C Frame, which I wouldnt use for over 14”s(The frames generally cannot hold as much stress as their Euro Design Brothers.

I personally would pass.

Thanks dude, I felt the same way after reading some of the reviews on the web. Appreciate the confirmation of my gut feeling. The search continues…
