WOOD magazine review

Bandsaw delivers accurate cutting at a just-right price

Review Summary

If you’re looking for your first bandsaw, Grizzly’s G0555LX provides a good place to start. Selling for less than half of what most deluxe 14" saws go for, this machine offers solid performance with a few frills you’d not expect at this price. Powered by a 1-hp motor, the G0555LX resawed (ripped on edge) 6-1/2"-wide hickory and red oak in my tests without any blade drift or deflection. When I fed the wood aggressively, though, it consistently tripped the 20-amp breaker in my shop.
So, although it handles a sensible feed rate, don’t expect it to be a resaw workhorse. The G0555LX cuts curves cleanly and accurately, thanks to single-bearing blade guides and thrust bearings. Also worth noting: It has a rack-and-pinion blade guidepost for easy adjustment, a quick-release blade tensioner for fast blade changes, and comes with a rip fence. —Tested by Bob Saunders
