New Band Saw – Unboxing

The first large tool I ever purchased was a 10” Craftsman band saw.  I really wanted to do some band saw boxes and scroll work.  Unfortunately, I didn’t do my research before purchasing the band saw.  It turns out, the band saw had a proprietary blade and only offered 2 styles of blade.  So the money I saved up for months was all for naught.  I learned a good lesson that day; do your research before buying any new tool.

Today, I’m thrilled to say that 10 years later, I’m replacing my old band saw with something that WILL do what I want.  I ordered the 14” Grizzly G0555LANV Anniversary Edition band saw.  I still want to do band saw boxes and scroll work, but I also want to re-saw lumber.  I checked the reviews on, worked my Google-Fu and found some reviews.  I also checked some reviews of some of my favorite YouTubers such as Jay Bates and April Wilkerson.  Based on what I’ve read, my needs, and my budget, I think I found a great saw.

The saw went together perfectly and I’m thrilled with my new purchase.  I even bought a ShopFox mobile base that makes moving the saw a breeze.
