So I finally decided on the Grizzly 14" "Ultimate" band saw. Then I got my
Rockler sales flyer and they're advertising a Delta 14" for $409 (regularly
$599.99) after a $50 rebate. I'm still leaning towards the Grizzly, but
there's a Rockler store about 1/2 hour away so I wouldn't have to deal with
the shipping issue.
Any thoughts on which one is the better saw?
Should you have problems with your new sawdust generator, would you rather
plead your case to someone on the phone or do it face to face? I think I
would opt for the local dealer as I could also have a look at the new toy
_before_ it is delivered. Nothing like having to wait for the delivery
truck and then find the box all crunched on one corner to really make your
Besides, if you want the Rockler to stay just down the road, you have to
Enjoy your new saw whatever route you choose.
I would go with the Grizzly over the Delta, service and customer service.
However you have a dealer close by and that means a lot, I think it would
sway me over the fence just enough to buy the Delta. Both are good saws, I
like the Grizzly product better, but if the service at rockler is decent I
would go with local everytime.
