Super Souped Up Bandsaw

Super Souped Up Bandsaw

    

Grizzly has added some muscle to one of their best-selling 14-in. bandsaws and come up with the new model G0555X machine, $595. I like the large motor (1-1/2-hp, 15-amp), I like the built-in light, I like the tall resaw fence, but what I like most is the large table. At 14-in. x 20-1/2-in. this is one of the largest tables you'll find on a 14-in. saw. It's nice to have plenty of real estate to the right and left of the blade. Grizzly accomplished such a large table by making it in two pieces. A 5-in. extension on the left side of the table is fastened to the bottom half of the saw. So, when you tilt the table, the extension remains in place and only the main table tilts. Otherwise, you wouldn't have the clearance to tilt the table all the way to 45-degrees. This is a clever idea that I've only seen on one other 14-in. bandsaw. The G0555X uses ball bearing blade guides above and below the table. Ball bearing guides are especially handy when using wide resaw blades. The saw accepts blades from 92-1/2-in. to 93-1/2-in. long, and 1/8 to 3/4-in. wide. A riser block, which increases the thickness capacity from 6 in. to 12 in. is available, $57.95. Adding the riser block increases the blade's length to 105 in.
