Introducing "The Cub" 9" Benchtop Bandsaw, Grizzly's first addition to our benchtop series of portable home shop machines. We designed this machine with many of our industrial elements from our bestselling 14" models, and added some industry-first features for a benchtop bandsaw like the stout carrying handle, upper and lower ball bearing blade guides, and LED light. Metal doors and a 2" dust port for shop vacuums add to the list of impressive features this little bear offers. The all-aluminum fence and built-in table scale make this a great addition to any shop - small or large.

A great saw

Review Summary

I bought this saw at Grizzly from the returns area. It included a new Timberwolf blade. I took it home and spent about 1 hour getting it squared up, adjusted, table leveled, and tensioned correctly. This saw cuts great, probably due to the great blade. I have made precise cuts in 2 1/4 pine blocks with very little blade drift (8 identical pieces, two were not perfect) and I have cut a large 2 1/4 inch plywood block without any drift. I really have been impressed with this saw.
Best points: portability, cut accuracy, LED light, blade tensioner release, and stability. Worst points: It is not a 14 inch saw. My 75cfm vacuum will not evacuate the lower cavity completely and the saw must be cleaned out after use. Other points: 3/8 blades maximum, Comments: I got a great deal on this saw. However, I might have bought the Rikon 10-305 if I had seen it first. I have no complaints about this saw and suspect it will last a long time. The guide bearing system seems very good. I would not push this saw and when the blade dulls I will get a new blade rather than push it. I have not had any issues with tracking or blade jumping off the wheels.
