and thoughts from here, i went on an did the griz 513p BS. no so much for the pretty white color but i just didtn want to get 14 and then feel the 17 was more versatile, probably gonna do some training and junk work on the supplied blade just to get feel of things, grizzly tech folks were patient and helpful as well, thanks for all the initial welcomes here a while back,

btw what would be the most universal size blade, for general sawing, not too much resawing and mostly smaller cutting, tenons, ripping etc as the bulk of the work,

Sincerely

I have the 17” extreme series Grizz and use 1/4” Timberwolf blades for just about everything except resawing. I use the 1” Timberwolf blades for resawing. I also have a Carter Stabilizer which I love. A little pricey but worth it in my opinion. Watch their video of the guy cutting out reindeer. That sold me! Enjoy your new toy! My saw came with a half inch blade which is too wide for tighter than gentle cuts and too narrow for resawing. Get some decent blades and you will like your saw better.
