Grizzly 17" bandsaw

I f I had the room and the money I would get this. But I dont. So I thought I would post the link in case there was someone looking for one. Looks like a good deal. Maybe someone owns the sister/brother saw G0513 that can speak to its performance. Anyway if your lookin its worth consideration.

Looks like a good deal, but I think I would rather have the extreme series 17" which comes with cast iron stuff and resaw fence.

I have seen where they are doing several machines in white and calling it the "Polar Bear" series. They are the same machine as another, only in white. I noticed that there really isnt a price difference except for this one ($127.00).

Those upper guide side "buttons" are kind of funky. I wonder why they spec'd that instead of blocks? Having never seen a Grizzly band saw in person, are they all like that?

John, I believe all the Extreme series have roller bearings, and the bigger machines have double roller bearings. Those round deals are "european" style, so Grizzly is probably making them to be different that most cheap block system.
