I think I’m going to be getting one of the G0555 series bandsaws. This will be my first bandsaw and I’m not terribly familiar with the things. Before I actually buy the thing I have some questions I was hoping I could pose to you fine folks.
First, I’m looking at the specs on the G0555LX (Deluxe bandsaw) and the G0555 (ultimate bandsaw). They look to be nearly identical but the LX version looks like it has somewhat better specs (cast iron wheels vs aluminum). However, the LX is about 30 bucks cheaper. So I’m puzzled. Which is the better machine? I’m leaning towards the LX version.
Secondly, have people that have gotten this Grizzly saw been reasonably content with it? Are there any issues I should be aware of? Tweaks, tricks, etc?
Thirdly, can anyone point me to some websites(s) that have good primers on bandsaws? Or books? I’m going to need to learn the basics of how these things work. If for no other reason than so I don’t cut my fingers off.
I apologize for throwing out so many questions in one post. Thanks very much in advance.
