Tool review: Deluxe 14-inch Bandsaws

Grizzly G0457

Grizzly G0457

Pluses: We really like the rip fence on this saw. Although the G0457 has only 10" of resaw capacity, it was one of three models to cut with less than 1/32" of blade deflection. That's important so you don't waste wood later at the planer flattening a resawn face. And we found it easy to square the table to the back of the blade by adjusting setscrews on the trunnion bracket.

Minuses: You can't install or remove 3/4"-wide blades without removing the table first, because the blade teeth hit the rabbeted edge of the 2"-diameter table hole. (Grizzly's Bill Crofutt said his company will investigate this and might make changes on future models.) Because the aluminum rip fence mounts onto the right side of a cast-iron arm, you can't rip stock with the fence on the right side of the blade. 800-523-4777;

I own the GO457 and I just installed a 3/4" carbide tip blade with no issue at all. (did not need to remove table or anything else to install). I can't tell how old this review is but Grizzly has obviously fixed the problem. This is the third bandsaw I have owned it is without question the BEST for my needs.
