    Grizzly bandsaw adjustment

    I have one of the famous Grizzly G0555 14" "Ultimate" bandsaws. Overall, I am very pleased with it. The first time I needed new blades I called Suffolk Machinery, the Timberwolf people, to order. They told me I needed 92 1/2" blades. I said the owners manual specified 93 1/2" but they insisted they were right. Well, I have been buying the 92 1/2" and using right along. Recently a friend gave me a bunch of blades he no longer could use. They are all 93 1/2". Now way, no how was I able to use those, the adjustments simply would not go that far. I wrote an e-mail to Griz tech support. They sent back a sheet of instructions THAT ARE NOT IN THE OWNERS MANUAL telling how to make the change so it will accept 93 1/2" blades. I did as instructed and now have one on the machine. Glad I wrote as the 93 1/2" size is much more standard and available than the shorter. But, I'm a little irked (can I say "irked" here? ) that Griz didn't provide this information up front.
