Ok, my first post here.
So I’m wondering if anyone here has gotten this bandsaw and what they think of it.
I ask because it is on sale through 4/30 for $360, and with my 20% discount, that comes to $288…and thats a price that’s hard to beat for an occasional user as I’ll be. I was all set to get the Grizz GO555 at $625 ($525 + about $100 shipping), but thats over twice as much for what sounds like being very close to the HF 67595.
And if you have this saw, would you mind commenting on:
1. The blade guides you might have changed to. Ceramic? Cool blocks? Carter roller bearings?
2. Riser blocks and availability. Someone posted about 3 years ago that the HF #24536 blocks are available by telephone order only.
3. Either a quick release or tension crank to relieve the tension in the blade when not in use.
Anything else you might consider helpful.
All comments are much appreciated!
