Post: RE: Bandsaw blade advice

+1 with John.   Though if the current blade is the one that came with the saw,  I would toss it.  The blade that came with my Grizzly was totatlly useless.

Post: RE: Trouble Tensioning BS Blade

John, sorry, you are right, the GO513 x2.  As to blade length, actually the blade length is not identical for each blade, I found that out the hard way when the first one I bought was slighly over 131...

David,  I have the same saw, and while it has some great features,  I don't think the tension gauge is one of them.  For me, I went with a 1/2 inch resaw blade, I was concerned that it would not corre...

Post: RE: Resurrecting my Dad's old Craftsman table saw

I rehabbed an old craftsman for a friend.  I made an adapter so that a blade guard off a cheap jobsite saw would fit, then made a separate riving knife.  Good luck on your adventure.

Sure you will love it.  I had to turn off the brake sensor for an angled cut in some PT lumber this weekend,  and was thrilled to get those two cuts done, then back to having the safety.

Sorry about your loss.   Every once in a while I do a little shop clean and find things I forgot I bought,  but nothing anywhere near the size of a planer, much less the giant one you have.
