cherokee6 Posted September 6, 2010 Report Share Posted September 6, 2010 Finally got my band saw! It's a Grizzly 14" Extreme model with the riser block. Took the day off Friday for the delivery and had to wait for my neighbor to come home to help me lift the saw onto the stand. I finished putting it together, but Grizzly didn't supply the extended post! So, a quick call to them and its on its way. I need to spend a couple of more hours doing adjustments, etc. Next paycheck: Woodslicer 3/4" resaw blade. It's a well made saw. Picked up a Timberwolf 1/4" raker and will order a couple of more blades from Iturra Design. (tool nuts know of this place only by word of mouth). Can't wait to make guitar necks. I was severely handicapped using the shop bandsaw at the airport (flying club) with its beat blades. To this date I haven't made a neck from start to finish, only repairs/restoration. I picked up a beautiful spokeshave last Fall at the local flea market and can't wait to try it out. Now I have to clean out my garage to make more room for the tools. Next big ticket will be a spindle sander and eventually an 8" jointer. I don't expect the last item to be purchased for quite awhile. As I've been spending time rebuilding my Cessna 172 (with no $) and learning to fly a C 150, I haven't been too involved with this end of my interests. This bandsaw will certainly bring me back to it! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
