I ordered a G0555 on Friday and I called the trucking terminal this morning and it was there. So I went down and picked it up. Here are the assembly picks.

I had to drag it in my shop

The only damage I found is in the next 2 pics

I opened the top and found:

To get the bandsaw out of the box I had to tilt the box on its end and drag it out carefully
Image

Here are the parts sorted out on my bench

Here is the cast iron table out of the wrapper coated with .....
Image

After I cleaned it I coated it with T-9( I have not formed an opinion on it yet)
Image
Image

Here is the bandsaw on the stand (Man was it heavy, picked it up by my self)
Image

Here is the table set on the band saw
Image

Now I installed the fence and rails

I made the adjustments from the book. I called Grizzly to ask about the belt tenison and they walked me thru it. So far great customer service.
Adjustments are made and I made a cut on a scrap piece of wood.

You'll never regret this buy! I've gotten many years of dependable service and still singing praises. I installed the riser block the first week I had mine.
Good luck,
Don

I have a beam down the center of my shop ceiling which I put a chain around so that I can lift heavy parts to assemble or disassemble. I may only use it once a year but it sure saves the back. In fact the last time I used it was to assemble my band saw. If you are as happy with yours as I am with mine ( the same saw) you will be very happy.

Best new tool purchase I ever made. Get some timberwolf blades and you're good to go.

You realize that is why the wind is getting so strong up in your part of the country, don't you?
