before i snagged my minimax mm16 i had a G0555 for a lil while, i added the riserblock, and a "woodslicer" blade,man did that thing cut effortlessly. i'd definitely recommend the riser, if i had room to keep both i would have,dudeman
That does look like a great setup. How does the band saw hold up to resawing a log like that. I have an G0555 also and am thinking about the riser block and resawing. As Darren said for those interesting tree scraps and such.
:yes:, yeppers.Feel free to copy, I assumed that was the idea behind the forum.
According to the Grizzly website, the maximum cutting height for the bandsaw is 6", yet here you are, skillfully cutting through a log that is nearly twice that diameter.
Obviously, you made some modifications. The saw looks much different (parts missing?).
What modifications did you make?
I'd say your best bet is to just get the Grizz... it is pretty cheap and has all the parts you need.Too cool! Where is the best place (read cheapest) to buy the riser kit for the saw? And what components specifically does it come with?
considering the cut, I'd say he must be using a 3/4", which is the largest the G0555 is supposed to be able to handleDudeman, What size blade do you have on there? I use a 3/4"
