Shop Fox Band Saw W1706
The riser block kit arrived yesterday. The packaging was a bit flilmsy and the blade has a kink from the box being squeezed at one end. They are going to send a new blade when the saw ships.
You sure can tell that Shop Fox is related to Grizzly. The only real beef I have with Grizzly is the way the equipment is crated/packaged for shipment. Back in 2000, my G1023 table saw arrived sitting upside down on the skid. The table top was on the pallet and had several gouges from nails. The saw had tipped over at some point and they tipped it upside down and put it on the skid. Grizzly did repalce it, but it just seems like such a waste due to poor packaging.
The bandsaw is suppose to arrive at their dock today and then ship to me either today or tomorrow.
