I am a hobbyist, and also have the Grizzly G0555LANV. It was my first band saw and I love it. I have it setup using the “Alex Snodgrass” method, and couldn’t be happier. Blade wise, I purchased a Timberwolf 3 blade assortment.

TW Blades

Again, I don’t have anything to compare them to, but these blades are great. Cut wood like butter. I recently resawed some Wenge for keepsake boxes I made, it was the first time I ever resawed anything, and with the combination of the setup, blades, and 6 inch tall resaw fence I made, the cuts came out perfect. Believe me, I was shocked I got such good results the first time.

I plan to buy the riser block for my saw, but will wait a while because then I would have to buy new blades, so I want to get some more use out of these first
