29 Oct A Two-Blade Re-saw Bandsaw
Grizzly Industrial has released a new, heavy-duty, large capacity re-saw bandsaw, the G0919, that has twin 20HP motors and a 10” x 11-3/4” stock capacity. It cuts the top and bottom of the board in one pass, from 1/4″ to 5″ thick with the lower blade and from 1/2″ to 6-3/4″ thick with the upper blade. Whether you’re re-sawing planking, making custom beams or other high-end projects, you can dial in the blade heights and feed rate on the digital control panel. This is a big machine made for resawing large planks and slabs, and while it’s not designed for a typical home woodshop, it is a perfect fit for landowners who harvest and mill their own trees. The G0919 has two 2″ x 168″ blades, and each is powered by a 20 HP 3-phase motor (220V is standard, and 440V is an option). It allows a woodworker to resaw boards up to 10″ thick by 11-3/4″ wide. There’s a 107″ conveyor with variable feed speed from 10–90 FPM. The saw has independent upper and lower digital blade height controls, a hydraulically driven feed conveyor and adjustable ceramic blade guides. It connects to a standard dust collection system with three 4″ dust ports. The overall dimensions are 89-1/2″ wide x 108″ deep x 73″ tall, and it weighs approximately 3300 lbs. The G0919 is listed at $16,995 and is covered by a one-year warranty.
