Editor's Review: New Breed of Bandsaws

by Thomas McKenna

review date: September 1, 2007

This bear is a sound performer at a bargain price. Fit and finish overall are good, blade changes are easy, and the fence is high quality. The saw did fine in all of the cutting tests.

For the money your best bet in a quality tool. I have a garage shop and I am a novice WW at best. The machine is on a portable base and is easy to set up and stow away. The guides are a bit finicky but can be adjusted to the manual specs. I have used up to a 1/2 inch 3tpi blade for re-saw up to 6 inches without riser block good results. I am happy with this saw. One complaint is that I have had to pay $50.00 in additional shipping charges to fedex, I don't know if that is because of Grizzly or fedex or what but, when you receive the machine ask if there will be any additional shipping charges and if so who should pay them. My deal with grizzly was that I prepaid the freight charge. So watch out.

I have had my saw six months and it does an excellent job. I had to spend some time shimming the table arbor and the over head column to get everything square.

This is a great machine. I resawed with it and had good results. Its such a good all around machine. Easy to change blades and ease to setup.


I bought this saw based on the testing done by FWW and overall ratings from other sources. I'm happy to say I am completely satisfied with this machine. Once I tuned it up(according to the manual) I'm very happy with it. I looked at much more expensive machines but kept coming back to this one.I think I made a good choice.

a good machine
