    Bandsaw phase 2

    Well I ordered me a bandsaw today. Was going to get the Grizzly 0580 like Dan, but the 0555 Ultimate was on sale and only $30 more. Figured for an extra $30 I get an dual speed and 1/4 more HP. Don't know if I need the extra's but why not for the price. Now the wait begins.

    You will be very happy with the G0555, it is a very popular bandsaw for many reasons. You will quickly learn that a 1 hp motor on a saw that size is not excessive. e.g. cutting 5" or 6" thick hard-hardwoods must be done slowly. It is a good saw but not a monster.

    Chuck, I put your address, but if you are not home they are to deliver here. Hope your home

    Actually it is going to the father-in-laws. Going to unload with the tractor. Probably need to tell him here in a day or so.

    I've had the G0555 for about 2 years and love it Also put the riser kit in and have resawed 10" wide oak with no problems. The stock fence is a good set up and really handy. Enjoy your new toy

    Good luck with your new saw - I'm thinking I need a bigger bandsaw if I'm going to be cutting out bigger turning blanks. That's the model I'm focusing on, but I might get lucky and stumble on a CL find.

    I'm still gathering the $$$ for the purchase. . .

    I have a riser kit that has been in the box for about a year. I have a bunch of new blades for saw without riser and am hesitant (translate that as "cheap) to buy all new ones for use with riser. Oh, well.
