Steel City 50150G Bandsaw Assembly

I have complained many times about how poorly my old Ridgid bandsaw cut. Until I put Carter guides on it, it was virtually impossible to use.

The Mighty 50150G.

Steel City Tool Works was kind enough to listen and send me their 50150G 14" Hybrid Bandsaw with Granite Table.

So far the saw was easy to assembly and the built in portable base makes moving it around my shop a breeze. The very low mounted motor keeps the center of gravity low and make the saw very stable.

In this video I show the assembly of the 50150G. In the coming weeks I'll be using it on some projects. Then I'll write up a formal review.


I'd like to thank Steel City and Glenn for sending me the saw. I plan to give it lots of use.
