I just received the Grizzly G0555 a week before Christmas and I have been
fairly happy so far, but I have two questions for anyone that can help.
The first question is with the fence. It does not ride smoothly.
Sometimes I need to use both hands to wiggle the fence over when adjusting
it. I called Grizzly, and they said that it is normally a little tight,
but what I was having sounded like a burr or something that didn't get
filed off at the factory. All I found were two screw holes that had a
little rough edge. I used a file to smooth them and it seemed to help, but
just yesterday I noticed that it was starting to get worse. I did notice a
groove being worn into the aluminum bar that attaches to the table. I'm
going to call them again today, but wanted to know if anyone else has a
similar problem, or if your fence slides smoothly.
The second question is with the cut produced. I have never owned or used a
bandsaw before so I don't know what quality of cut it should produce. When
I make a cut, I get a consistant wave That is about 1/10 of an inch high
about every 1/3 of an inch. This is a normal feed rate, nothing slow or
fast. It does change with the feed rate, so I'm wondering if it's the
blade or something with the machine. I am still using the blade that came
with the saw.
Thanks for the help and suggestions.
