For any interested, this is the spec sheet for the saw, which was identified by Grizzly as being model G1073Z. Discontinued, but parts available.

It has a limit of 7-3/8” resaw capacity which seems small to me. IIRC, many 14” bandsaws have a greater resaw capacity than that. Is there a way to increase resaw capacity without radically altering the machine?

It has a 2 HP motor, which seems ample. Any benefits to a smaller saw with less power? (Transport being fairly obvious, even to me.)

Sorry if I’m bugging folks with this. I’m hoping to put together a group of quality machines with a hackers budget, and a novice level of experience.
