  • ordered bandsaw tonite

    Well after months of pondering i broke down and ordered a grizzly 9742 bandsaw it all i could afford at this time but i guess its a start and should help around the shop and get me away from the 14"chop this is my first stationary bandsaw in the shop beside my hand held portaband.so i,m hoping this thing aint junk but for the money i guess i can,t expect much.

            several guys on the Hobart board have the Homier version and seem very happy with them. Your Grizz should be a peach. My 10" Grizz cabinet saw is sweet.

                    I've got several Grizzly tools, & their shipping has always been fast!
                    Let us know how your saw works & what you think of it. I'd love to have an Ellis, but a Grizzly or Homier will have to do for me.

                      admweld,

                      I've been using that model bandsaw for almost 5 years now in my small shop. I have been nothing but pleased with it's performance. It certainly isn't an Ellis but for the money it's been a great saw. I think that you will be pleased with your purchase.

                        I've never owned Grizzly tools but I hear there wood working tools are supposed to be pretty good in the affordable range also. I was reading a comparison in a magazine and I think the Grizzly ranked top.
