Theres a Grizzly G1019Z for sale locally for 125 which based on some google-fu seems to be a good price and it is in good shape. Any major problems? From what i can tell people are saying it takes an odd size blade but if thats it i can have some made no problem at the local blade sharpening shop.

This is my first band saw purchase so i dont know exactly what to look for but i know i like the 14” cut capacity.

Id like to maybe pick this up ASAP if its as good a deal as i think so any input would be nice.

I can’t comment on that specific model, but I do have a Grizzly 14” bandsaw (G0555 model or something) and I like it a lot. That does sound like a pretty good price if its in good shape.

I have that model. For $125 I would buy it if everything checks out. It has been an OK bandsaw, over the years I have replaced several part, guides bearing and fence. Check the upper spindle assembly for any cracks, easily replaced but just a weak spot.
