Well, I wish I could make the same recommendations, but I have had serious
problems with Grizzly. I bought a 16" bandsaw from them which had the upper
guide almost 1/4" offset from the bottom guide! This means no matter what
I do to position the blade, I would get a crooked cut. I disassembled the
upper arm and found that the manufacturer bolted and pinned the arm wrong,
and that they tried to fix the problem by re-drilling the bolt hole and
re-pinning the arm. I called them several times, they did not want to hear
about it, and suggested for the price ($595) I could not expect much in the
way of quality. Eventually I sent it back to them, along with a nasty letter
demanding a refund of not only the cost of the saw, but the shipping. They
sent me a check for the saw, and I was out approx. 80 bucks for the freight.
Next time, I'll try Delta.
