Grizzly 14Ē Bandsaw G1019

Anyone own this bandsaw?

I saw a good deal for a used one ($150)and was wondering if this is a good saw or not?
I think itís from the 1980s it have 3/4 hp. I wish itís 1hp.

Is this build to last like the delta?

Is it easy to find replacement parts or to upgrade the motor?

Is this one variable speed? I have a 12" Grizzly that is variable speed. Made 10-12 years ago. Great saw.

It's a good saw, i would buy it if I was looking for one


The new Grizzly's are now 25% more because of the tariff, but somehow the giverment might work it out with China so it will be temporary

I thought Grizzly BS's were made in Tiwian. I have a later model I think it's the GO555 model (I think). I like my saw pretty good, in fact, I have been using it a lot today. Yes, I would buy the saw you are looking at.

Seems like a good deal, 3/4 HP is probably adequate on a 14" saw, if not just exchange for another larger motor with same mounting specs. Depends on the kind of life the saw had with the previous owner, not much can go wrong that can't be fixed on one in reasonable condition.

Have one, Grizzly carries a lot of parts - just type in the part number in the search box on their home page and it will find it if they have it. Just bought one of the blade guide mounting castings for mine. Good saw.

The saw didnít come with a dust hose or a fence.

Will the Kreg fence work?

Can I add a dust port? Or this was never designed to have one to being with.

A Kreg fence is what I have on mine.

I doubt if it was designed for dust collection, in 1984 DC's weren't the big buzz word


It looks like you got a good deal, Grizzly started importing in 1983. I fought the battle of the cheap imports and kept buying American made machines because of the old will you be able to find parts


So I ended up with much higher priced brand names that no longer supply parts


I have become a big fan of Grizzly tools

The dust port is available from Grizzly:

Mine didn't come with a fence either, I'm adapting one from an old Craftsman table saw. Just a matter of some angle iron and a few spacers & bolts.

My original manual doesnít have this part on the parts diagram.

I might have to call Grizzly and ask.

It's kind of hard to see on the paper doc, it's item 133 on my copy.

It's an older model saw...

Older saws had no dust port. Gravity was the favorite method of collecting dust, but it doesn't work all that well.
You can modify or cut away your lower blade cover to accept a shop vac fitting which you could silicone in place. I have one very close to the table by the blade guide, so that's where I would locate yours.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

That looks very much like my 1984 vintage AMT saw. Taiwanese clone of a Delta I think. Mine has an opening in the back of the bottom casting where a vacuum connection could be made, though a fitting was not supplied by the manufacturer. See the hole, lower left in this photo:
