Hi All,

I’ve finally decided on going with a big bandsaw rather than a cabinet saw after taking a short class with Roland Johnson at the Fine Woodworking Live event in New Paltz New York this past August. Ironically, the class was about table saw tune-ups! I’m going to pull the trigger before I go to bed. I think some of you guys might have gone through the 3 stages:

1. You think about which tool to buy for a while
2. You think about whether or not to buy it
3. POW. You wake up one morning knowing you’ll be buying a big, crazy tool by the end of the day.

I’m going with the Grizzly G0513X2B.

Does anybody have a coupon that they don’t think they’ll use before it expires?

Thanks in Advance

I don’t know where you’re located and it’s not as big, but this is interesting.
BTW, your wish list machine is a lot like mine but much newer… you know the story.

Wow. That is a good looking bandsaw, and a pretty good deal to boot. In my case, I’ve got a ton of 12” wide 8/4 stock that I need to split in half. The 17” saw I’m getting has the resaw capacity and I think will go a bit faster.

Thanks for listing the add though! Somebody is gonna get a great deal.

I don’t have a coupon but I do have that bandsaw.
I’m no bandsaw expert but I’ve had mine for over a year and it gets better every time I use it
Lots of power, lots of resaw ability and easy blade changes. I especially like the the motor and blade brake (stops in under 3 seconds). Very easy to set up.
Good luck with yours….................

Well I pulled the trigger last night on the bandsaw. It’ll be arriving in 3 days. I also picked up a nice little 1.5hp shaper for $445 while I was at it :)

Now I’ve just got to get a 81” tall shipping crate through my 72” tall garage door!
