SECTION 2: POWER SUPPLY
Availability
Circuit Information
Before installing the machine, consider the availability and proximity of the required power supply
circuit. If an existing circuit does not meet the
requirements for this machine, a new circuit must
be installed. To minimize the risk of electrocution,
fire, or equipment damage, installation work and
electrical wiring must be done by an electrician or
qualified service personnel in accordance with all
applicable codes and standards.
A power supply circuit includes all electrical
equipment between the breaker box or fuse panel
in the building and the machine. The power supply circuit used for this machine must be sized to
safely handle the full-load current drawn from the
machine for an extended period of time. (If this
machine is connected to a circuit protected by
fuses, use a time delay fuse marked D.)
Electrocution, fire, or
equipment damage may
occur if machine is not
correctly grounded and
connected to the power
supply.
Full-Load Current Rating
The full-load current rating is the amperage a
machine draws at 100% of the rated output power.
On machines with multiple motors, this is the
amperage drawn by the largest motor or sum of all
motors and electrical devices that might operate
at one time during normal operations.
Full-Load Current Rating at 110V....... 15 Amps
Full-Load Current Rating at 220V..... 7.5 Amps
The full-load current is not the maximum amount
of amps that the machine will draw. If the machine
is overloaded, it will draw additional amps beyond
the full-load rating.
If the machine is overloaded for a sufficient length
of time, damage, overheating, or fire may result—
especially if connected to an undersized circuit.
To reduce the risk of these hazards, avoid overloading the machine during operation and make
sure it is connected to a power supply circuit that
meets the specified circuit requirements.
-4-
For your own safety and protection of
property, consult an electrician if you are
unsure about wiring practices or electrical
codes in your area.
Note: Circuit requirements in this manual apply to
a dedicated circuit—where only one machine will
be running on the circuit at a time. If machine will
be connected to a shared circuit where multiple
machines may be running at the same time, consult an electrician or qualified service personnel to
ensure circuit is properly sized for safe operation.
Circuit Requirements for 110V
This machine is prewired to operate on a power
supply circuit that has a verified ground and meets
the following requirements:
Nominal Voltage......................................... 110V
Cycle...........................................................60 Hz
Phase............................................ Single-Phase
Power Supply Circuit.......................... 20 Amps
Plug/Receptacle.............................. NEMA 5-15
Circuit Requirements for 220V
This machine can be converted to operate on a
power supply circuit that has a verified ground
and meets the requirements listed below. (Refer
to Voltage Conversion instructions for details.)
Nominal Voltage.........................................220V
Cycle...........................................................60 Hz
Phase............................................ Single-Phase
Power Supply Circuit.......................... 15 Amps
Plug/Receptacle.............................. NEMA 6-15
Model G0778 (Mfd. Since 10/14)
Grounding Requirements
This machine MUST be grounded. In the event
of certain malfunctions or breakdowns, grounding
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric current.
For 110V operation: This machine is equipped
with a power cord that has an equipment-grounding wire and a grounding plug (see following figure). The plug must only be inserted into a matching receptacle (outlet) that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.

Grounding Prong
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
wire can result in a risk of electric shock. The
wire with green insulation (with or without yellow
stripes) is the equipment-grounding wire. If repair
or replacement of the power cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding
wire to a live (current carrying) terminal.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if you do not understand these grounding
requirements, or if you are in doubt about whether
the tool is properly grounded. If you ever notice
that a cord or plug is damaged or worn, disconnect it from power, and immediately replace it with
a new one.
Extension Cords
We do not recommend using an extension cord
with this machine. If you must use an extension
cord, only use it if absolutely necessary and only
on a temporary basis.
SHOCK HAZARD!
Two-prong outlets do not meet the grounding
requirements for this machine. Do not modify
or use an adapter on the plug provided—if
it will not fit the outlet, have a qualified
electrician install the proper outlet with a
verified ground.
For 220V operation: The plug specified under
“Circuit Requirements for 220V” on the previous
page has a grounding prong that must be attached
to the equipment-grounding wire on the included
power cord. The plug must only be inserted into
a matching receptacle (see following figure) that
is properly installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
Model G0778 (Mfd. Since 10/14)
Extension cords cause voltage drop, which may
damage electrical components and shorten motor
life. Voltage drop increases as the extension cord
size gets longer and the gauge size gets smaller
(higher gauge numbers indicate smaller sizes).
Any extension cord used with this machine must
contain a ground wire, match the required plug
and receptacle, and meet the following requirements:
Minimum Gauge Size at 110V...............12 AWG
Minimum Gauge Size ...........................14 AWG
Minimum Gauge Size at 220V..............14 AWG
Maximum Length (Shorter is Better).......50 ft.
Maximum Length (Shorter is Better).......50 ft.

Voltage Conversion
The voltage conversion MUST be performed by
an electrician or qualified service personnel.
The voltage conversion procedure consists of
rewiring the main motor and installing the correct
plug. A wiring diagram is provided on Page 7 for
your reference.

ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT INJURY RISKS. You
can be shocked, burned, or killed by touching live
electrical components or improperly grounded
machinery. To reduce this risk, only allow qualified
service personnel to do electrical installation or
repair work, and always disconnect power before
accessing or exposing electrical equipment.
DISCONNECT POWER FIRST. Always disconnect machine from power supply BEFORE making
adjustments, changing tooling, or servicing machine.
This prevents an injury risk from unintended startup
or contact with live electrical components.
EYE PROTECTION. Always wear ANSI-approved
safety glasses or a face shield when operating or
observing machinery to reduce the risk of eye
injury or blindness from flying particles. Everyday
eyeglasses are NOT approved safety glasses.
G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw (Mfg. Since 5/11)
WEARING PROPER APPAREL. Do not wear
clothing, apparel or jewelry that can become
entangled in moving parts. Always tie back or
cover long hair. Wear non-slip footwear to avoid
accidental slips, which could cause loss of workpiece control.
HAZARDOUS DUST. Dust created while using
machinery may cause cancer, birth defects, or
long-term respiratory damage. Be aware of dust
hazards associated with each workpiece material,
and always wear a NIOSH-approved respirator to
reduce your risk.
HEARING PROTECTION. Always wear hearing protection when operating or observing loud
machinery. Extended exposure to this noise
without hearing protection can cause permanent
hearing loss.
REMOVE ADJUSTING TOOLS. Tools left on
machinery can become dangerous projectiles
upon startup. Never leave chuck keys, wrenches,
or any other tools on machine. Always verify
removal before starting!
USE CORRECT TOOL FOR THE JOB. Only use
this tool for its intended purpose—do not force
it or an attachment to do a job for which it was
not designed. Never make unapproved modifications—modifying tool or using it differently than
intended may result in malfunction or mechanical
failure that can lead to personal injury or death!
AWKWARD POSITIONS. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times when operating machine.
Do not overreach! Avoid awkward hand positions
that make workpiece control difficult or increase
the risk of accidental injury.
CHILDREN & BYSTANDERS. Keep children and
bystanders at a safe distance from the work area.
Stop using machine if they become a distraction.

SECTION 2: POWER SUPPLY
Availability
Circuit Information
Before installing the machine, consider the availability and proximity of the required power supply
circuit. If an existing circuit does not meet the
requirements for this machine, a new circuit must
be installed. To minimize the risk of electrocution,
fire, or equipment damage, installation work and
electrical wiring must be done by an electrician or
qualified service personnel in accordance with all
applicable codes and standards.
A power supply circuit includes all electrical
equipment between the breaker box or fuse panel
in the building and the machine. The power supply circuit used for this machine must be sized to
safely handle the full-load current drawn from the
machine for an extended period of time. (If this
machine is connected to a circuit protected by
fuses, use a time delay fuse marked D.)
Electrocution, fire, or
equipment damage may
occur if machine is not
correctly grounded and
connected to the power
supply.
Full-Load Current Rating
The full-load current rating is the amperage a
machine draws at 100% of the rated output power.
On machines with multiple motors, this is the
amperage drawn by the largest motor or sum of all
motors and electrical devices that might operate
at one time during normal operations.
Full-Load Current Rating at 220V..... 9.5 Amps
Full-Load Current Rating at 110V....... 19 Amps
The full-load current is not the maximum amount
of amps that the machine will draw. If the machine
is overloaded, it will draw additional amps beyond
the full-load rating.
If the machine is overloaded for a sufficient length
of time, damage, overheating, or fire may result—
especially if connected to an undersized circuit.
To reduce the risk of these hazards, avoid overloading the machine during operation and make
sure it is connected to a power supply circuit that
meets the specified circuit requirements.
G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw (Mfg. Since 5/11)
For your own safety and protection of
property, consult an electrician if you are
unsure about wiring practices or electrical
codes in your area.
Note: Circuit requirements in this manual apply to
a dedicated circuit—where only one machine will
be running on the circuit at a time. If machine will
be connected to a shared circuit where multiple
machines may be running at the same time, consult an electrician or qualified service personnel to
ensure circuit is properly sized for safe operation.

Grounding Requirements
This machine MUST be grounded. In the event
of certain malfunctions or breakdowns, grounding
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric current.
For 220V operation: This machine is equipped
with a power cord that has an equipment-grounding wire and a grounding plug (see following figure). The plug must only be inserted into a matching receptacle (outlet) that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.

6-15 RECEPTACLE
Current Carrying Prongs
6-15 PLUG
Serious injury could occur if you connect
the machine to power before completing the
setup process. DO NOT connect to power
until instructed later in this manual.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
wire can result in a risk of electric shock. The
wire with green insulation (with or without yellow
stripes) is the equipment-grounding wire. If repair
or replacement of the power cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding
wire to a live (current carrying) terminal.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if you do not understand these grounding
requirements, or if you are in doubt about whether
the tool is properly grounded. If you ever notice
that a cord or plug is damaged or worn, disconnect it from power, and immediately replace it with
a new one.
Grounding Prong
Figure 2. Typical 6-15 plug and receptacle.
For 110V operation: The plug specified in the
circuit requirements has a grounding prong that
must be attached to the equipment-grounding
wire inside the included power cord. The plug

Extension Cords
We do not recommend using an extension cord
with this machine. If you must use an extension
cord, only use it if absolutely necessary and only
on a temporary basis.
Disabling & Locking
Switch
Extension cords cause voltage drop, which can
damage electrical components and shorten motor
life. Voltage drop increases as the extension cord
size gets longer and the gauge size gets smaller
(higher gauge numbers indicate smaller sizes).
The ON/OFF switch can be disabled and locked
by inserting a padlock through the ON button,
as shown. Locking the switch in this manner can
prevent unauthorized operation of the machine,
which is especially important if the machine is not
stored inside an access-restricted building.
Any extension cord used with this machine must
be in good condition and contain a ground wire
and matching plug/receptacle. Additionally, it must
meet the following size requirements:
IMPORTANT: Locking the switch with a padlock
only restricts its function. It is not a substitute
for disconnecting power from the machine when
adjusting or servicing.
Minimum Gauge Size at 110V...............12 AWG
Minimum Gauge Size at 220V..............14 AWG
Maximum Length (Shorter is Better).......50 ft.
Voltage Conversion
The voltage conversion MUST be performed by
a qualified electrician. To perform the voltage
conversion, replace the power cord, install the
correct plug, and rewire the motor to the new voltage, according to the provided wiring diagram on
Page 52.
Note: If the diagram included on the motor conflicts with the one in this manual, the motor may
have changed since the manual was printed. Use
the diagram provided inside the motor wiring junction box.
To convert the machine to 110V:
1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER!
2. Replace the power cord with one that matches the cord specifications under Circuit
Recommendations for 110V on Page 9.
3. Replace the 6-15 plug on the power cord with
a NEMA 5-20 plug.
4. Re-wire the motor as illustrated in the wiring
diagram.

Dust Collection
23. Pull the handle up and place the fence
assembly on the fixed rail as shown in Figure
20.
DO NOT operate the Model G0457 without an
adequate dust collection system. This saw
creates substantial amounts of wood dust
while operating. Failure to use a dust collection system can result in short and long-term
respiratory illness.
Recommended CFM at Dust Port: 400 CFM
Do not confuse this CFM recommendation with
the rating of the dust collector. To determine the
CFM at the dust port, you must consider these
variables: (1) CFM rating of the dust collector,
(2) hose type and length between the dust collector and the machine, (3) number of branches
or wyes, and (4) amount of other open lines
throughout the system. Explaining how to calculate these variables is beyond the scope of
this manual. Consult an expert or purchase a
good dust collection "how-to" book.
Figure 20. Correctly installed fence.

Blade Tracking
The blade tracking is primarily affected by the
tilt of the upper wheel, also known as "Center
Tracking"; and the alignment of both wheels, also
known as "Coplanar Tracking." (For Coplanar
Tracking, see the Wheel Alignment instructions
on Page 49.)
The wheels on the Model G0457 were aligned at
the factory, so Center Tracking is the only adjustment that needs to be performed when the saw
is new.
To center track the blade:
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!

CENTER TRACKING
6. Loosen the tracking control lock knob (Figure
24) so that the tracking control knob will
rotate for adjustments.
2. Adjust the upper and lower guide bearings
and support bearings as far away as possible
from the blade.
3. Open the upper wheel cover.
4. Adjust blade tension until the mark on the
blade tension scale matches the size of the
installed blade.
The cast iron spokes may have sharp edges
and the blade teeth may extend beyond the
edge of the wheel, creating a laceration hazard. Be careful when turning the wheels by
hand.
5. Spin the upper wheel by hand at least three
times and watch how the blade rides on the
crown of the wheel. Refer to Figure 23 for an
illustration of this concept.
—If the blade rides in the center of the
upper wheel and is centered on the peak
of the wheel crown, then the bandsaw is
already tracked properly and no further
adjustments are needed at this time.
—If the blade does not ride in the center
of the upper wheel and is not centered
on the peak of the wheel crown, then
continue with the following steps.

Table Tilt Calibration
Table Alignment
The pointer on the table tilt scale must be calibrated in order for the scale reading to be accurate.
To ensure cutting accuracy when the table is first
installed, the table should be aligned so that the
miter slot is parallel to the bandsaw blade. This
procedure works best with a 3 ⁄4" blade installed.
To calibrate the pointer on the table tilt scale:
1. Make sure that the blade is tensioned and is
tracking correctly, and that the table is 90˚ to
the blade (see Table Stop Calibration on
Page .
2. Loosen the screw on the pointer (Figure 26),
but do not remove it.
To align the table so the miter slot is parallel
to the bandsaw blade:
1. Make sure that the blade is tracking properly
and that it is correctly tensioned.
2. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
3. Loosen the trunnion bolts that secure the
trunnions to the table.
4. Place an accurate straightedge along the
blade. The straightedge should lightly touch
both the front and back of the blade.
Note: Make sure the straightedge does not
go across a tooth.
Figure 26. Table tilt scale.
5. Use a fine ruler to gauge the distance
between the straightedge and the miter slot.
The distance you measure should be the
same at both the front and the back of the
table (see Figure 27).
3. Align the tip of the pointer with the 0˚ mark on
the table tilt scale.
6. Adjust the table as needed for proper alignment.
4. Tighten the screw on the pointer so that the
pointer is locked in place.
7. Tighten the trunnion bolts.

Fence Alignment
Miter Gauge
To ensure cutting accuracy when the fence is first
installed, the fence should be aligned with the
miter slot.
The miter gauge needs to be calibrated to the
blade when it is first mounted in the miter slot.
To align the fence parallel with the miter slot:
1. If the fence is mounted on the left-hand side
of the blade, remove it and remount it next to
the miter slot.
To calibrate the miter gauge:
1. Place one edge of a machinist's square
against the face of the miter gauge and the
other side against the blade face, as shown
in Figure 29.
2. Loosen the four cap screws located on the
top face of the fence (Figure 28).
Figure 29. Squaring miter gauge to blade.
Figure 28. Four fence cap screws.
3. Adjust the fence face parallel with the edge of
the miter slot.
4. Tighten the four cap screws, being careful not
to move the fence. 2. Loosen the lock knob on the miter gauge and
adjust it flush with the edge of the square.
3. Tighten the lock knob, and verify the setting.
Note: Sometimes the tightening procedure
can affect the adjustment.
4. Loosen the screw that secures the angle
pointer and adjust the pointer to the 0˚ mark
on the scale.
5. Retighten the screw that secures the angle
pointer.

Blade Tensioning
A properly tensioned blade is essential for making accurate cuts and is a prerequisite for making
many bandsaw adjustments. The blade tension
scale shows the approximate tension, but the
steps below will allow you to get the optimum tension for the installed blade.
To tension the bandsaw blade:
1. Make sure you have completed the Test Run
procedure on Page 21 and that the blade is
tracking properly.
2. Raise the upper blade guide assembly as
high as it will go, and adjust the upper and
lower guide blocks as far away from the blade
as possible.
Note: This procedure will NOT work if the
guide blocks have any contact with the
blade.
3. Adjust blade tension until the mark on the
blade tension scale matches the size of the
installed blade.
Note: This scale can only be considered a
general guide. Complete the following steps
to accurately set blade tension.
4. Turn the bandsaw ON.
NOTICE
After blade tension and tracking are set correctly, you MUST properly adjust the upper
and lower support bearings and guide-block
assemblies into position before cutting.
Adjusting Support
Bearings
The support bearings are positioned behind
the blade for support during cutting operations.
Proper adjustment of the support bearings is an
important part of making accurate cuts and also
keeps the blade teeth from coming in contact with
the guide bearings while cutting.
To adjust the support bearings:
1. Make sure that the blade is tracking properly
and that it is correctly tensioned.
2. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
3. Familiarize yourself with the support bearing
controls shown in Figure 30.

5. Slowly release the tension one quarter of a
turn at a time. When you see the bandsaw
blade start to flutter, stop decreasing the tension.
6. Now, slowly increase the tension until the
blade stops fluttering, then tighten the tension
another quarter turn.

Basic Cutting Tips
Here are some basic tips to follow when operating the bandsaw:
-28-
•
Replace, sharpen, and clean blades as necessary and make adjustments periodically to
keep the saw running in top condition.
•
Use light and even pressure while cutting.
Light contact with the blade will permit easier
line following and prevent undue friction.
•
Avoid trying to turn tight corners because this
will twist the blade. Remember, you must saw
around corners.
•
Misuse of the saw or using incorrect techniques is unsafe and results in frustration and
poor cuts. Remember—the blade does the
cutting with the operator’s guidance.
G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw (Mfg. Since 5/11)
Workpiece
Inspection
Some wood workpieces are not safe to cut or may
require modification before they are safe to cut.
Before making cuts, get in the habit of inspecting all workpieces for the following:
•
Material Type: This machine is intended for
cutting natural and man-made wood products, laminate covered wood products, and
some plastics. Cutting drywall or cementitious backer board creates extremely fine
dust and may reduce the life of the bearings.
This machine is NOT designed to cut metal,
glass, stone, tile, etc.; cutting these materials
with this saw may lead to injury.
•
Foreign Objects: Nails, staples, dirt, rocks
and other foreign objects are often embedded in wood. While cutting, these objects can
become dislodged and hit the operator or
break the blade, which might then fly apart.
Always visually inspect your workpiece for
these items. If they cannot be removed, do
NOT cut the workpiece.
•
Large/Loose Knots: Loose knots can
become dislodged during the cutting operation. Large knots can cause blade damage.
Choose workpieces that do not have large/
loose knots or plan ahead to avoid cutting
through them.
•
Wet or "Green" Stock: Cutting wood with
a moisture content over 20% causes unnecessary wear on the blade and yields poor
results.
•
Excessive Warping: Workpieces with excessive cupping, bowing, or twisting are dangerous to cut because they are unstable and can
move unpredictably when being cut. DO NOT
use workpieces with these characteristics!
•
Minor Warping: Workpieces with slight cupping can be safely supported if the cupped
side faces the table or fence. On the contrary,
a workpiece supported on the bowed side will
rock during a cut, leading to loss of control.
G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw (Mfg. Since 5/11)
Table Tilt
The bandsaw table will tilt 8˚ left and 45˚ right to
provide a wide range of cutting options. Most cutting operations are done at 90° and rarely will the
table need to be tilted left. Remove the positive
stop bolt to tilt the table to the left.
To tilt the table:
1. Loosen the two table trunnion hand knobs.
2. Position the table to the desired angle of tilt.
Refer to the angle gauge on the front table
trunnion for the tilting angle.
3. Retighten both table trunnion hand knobs.
-29-
Guide Post
Ripping
The guide post, shown in Figure 38, connects
the upper blade guide assembly to the bandsaw.
The guide post allows the blade guide assembly
to move up or down via a rack and pinion. In order
to cut accurately, the blade guide assembly must
be no more than 1" from the top of the workpiece
at all times—this positioning provides the greatest
support to the blade.
Ripping is the process of cutting with the grain of
the wood stock. For plywood and other processed
wood, ripping simply means cutting down the
length of the workpiece.
Adjustment
Knob
To rip with the Model G0457:
1. Adjust the fence to match the width of the
cut on your workpiece and lock the fence in
place.
2. Make sure the bandsaw is properly set up
and adjusted as described in SECTION 3:
SETUP.
Lock
Knob
Guide Post
3. Slowly feed the workpiece into the blade
and continue with the cut until the blade is
completely through the workpiece. Figure 39
shows a typical ripping operation.
Note: If you are cutting narrow pieces, use a
push stick to protect your fingers.
Figure 38. Guide post controls.
To adjust guide post:
1. Make sure that the blade tension, blade
tracking, support bearing, and blade guides
are adjusted correctly.
2. Loosen the guide post lock knob shown in
Figure 38.
3. Raise/lower the guide post with the adjustment knob to within 1" from the top of the
workpiece to the bottom of the blade guide
assembly.
Figure 39. Ripping with a push stick.
4. Lock the guide post in place with the lock
knob.
NEVER place fingers or hands in the line of
cut. In the event that something unexpected
happens, your hands or fingers may be
pulled into the blade. ALWAYS use a push
stick when ripping narrow pieces. Failure to
follow these warnings may result in serious
personal injury!

G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw (Mfg. Since 5/11)
Crosscutting
Resawing
Crosscutting is the process of cutting across the
grain of wood. For plywood and other processed
wood, crosscutting simply means cutting across
the width of the material.
Resawing (Figure 41) is the process of cutting a
board into two or more thinner boards. The maximum board width that can be resawn is limited
by the maximum cutting height of the bandsaw.
Maximum cutting height for this bandsaw is 10".
To crosscut with the Model G0457:
1. Mark the workpiece on the edge where you
want to begin the cut.
2. Move the fence out of the way. Place the
workpiece evenly against the miter gauge.
3. Line up the mark with the blade.
4. After all safety precautions have been met,
turn the bandsaw ON. Slowly feed the
workpiece into the blade and continue the
cut until the blade is all the way through the
workpiece. Figure 40 shows a typical crosscutting operation.
The Model G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw is
capable of resawing, provided the saw is properly
set up. Attempting to resaw too wide or too dense
of a board may put excessive strain on the blade
and cause breakage.
One of the most important considerations when
resawing is blade selection. Generally, the wider
blade, the better. In most applications, a hook or
a skip tooth style will be desirable. Also, since
most resawn lumber will be planed smooth, you
should choose blades with fewer teeth-per-inch
(from 3 to 6). While blades with fewer teeth-perinch produce rougher cuts, these types of blades
offer larger gullet capacities for clearing sawdust,
reducing heat buildup and reducing strain on the
motor.
Figure 40. Crosscutting with miter gauge.
Figure 41. Resawing lumber.
G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw (Mfg. Since 5/11)
-31-
Cutting Curves
To resaw a workpiece:
1. Verify that the bandsaw is set up properly and
that the table is perpendicular to the blade.
2. Use the widest blade your bandsaw will
accept.
Note: The blade must also be sharp and
clean.
3. Use a fence to guide the workpiece.
4. Set your fence to the desired width of cut and
lock it in place.
5. Support the ends of the board if necessary.
6. Turn the bandsaw ON.
7. Using push paddles and a push stick, keep
pressure against the fence and table, and
slowly feed the workpiece into the moving
blade until the blade is completely through
the workpiece.
When cutting curves, simultaneously feed and
turn the stock carefully so that the blade follows
the layout line without twisting. If a curve is so
abrupt that it is necessary to repeatedly back up
and cut a new kerf, use either a narrower blade
or a blade with more TPI (teeth per inch), or make
more relief cuts.
Always make short cuts first, then proceed to
the longer cuts. Relief cuts will also reduce the
chance that the blade will be pinched or twisted.
Relief cuts are cuts made through the waste
portion of the workpiece and are stopped at the
layout line. As you cut along the layout line, waste
wood is released from the workpiece, alleviating
any pressure on the back of the blade. Relief cuts
also make backing the workpiece out easier, if
needed.

Stacked Cuts
One of the benefits of a bandsaw is its ability to
cut multiple copies of a particular shape by stacking a number of workpieces together.
Before making stacked cuts, ensure that both the
table and the blade are properly adjusted to 90°.
Otherwise, any error will be compounded with
each piece cut from the top to the bottom of the
stack.
5. Cut the stack of pieces as though you were
cutting a single piece. Follow your layout line
with the blade kerf on the waste side of your
line as shown in Figure 42.
Cutting into brad nails that are used to
secure the multiple pieces can cause the
blade to break and may cause an injury to
the operator. Be extremely careful of where
you are cutting when performing this operation.
To complete a stacked cut:
1. Align your pieces from top to bottom to
ensure that each piece has adequate scrap
to provide a clean, unhampered cut.
2. Secure all the pieces together in a manner
that will not interfere with the cutting. Hot glue
on the edges works well, as do brad nails
through the waste portion. (Be careful not to
cut into the brads!)
3. On the face of the top piece, lay out the
shape you intend to cut.
4. Make relief cuts perpendicular to the outline of your intended shape in areas where
changes in blade direction could strain the
woodgrain or cause the blade kerf to bind.

-33-
Blade Information
Straight Cutting: Use the largest width
blade that you own. The Model G0457 will
accept blades up to 3 ⁄4" wide. Narrow blades
can cut tight curves (a small radius) but
are not very good at cutting straight lines
because they naturally wander (blade lead).
However, larger blades are much better at
cutting straight lines, but function poorly at
cutting small curves because of their size.
•
Selecting the right blade requires a knowledge
of the various blade characteristics mentioned
below, the type of material you plan to cut, and the
type of cut you are going to perform.
Blade Length
Measured by the circumference, blade lengths
are usually unique to the brand of your bandsaw
and the distance between wheels. The Model
G0457 is designed for blades that are 106" long.
Refer to the current Grizzly catalog for prices and
ordering information.
Blade Width
Tooth Style
When selecting blades, another option to consider is the shape, gullet size, teeth set and teeth
angle—otherwise known as “Tooth Style.”
Figure 44 shows the three main categories of
tooth style:
Measured from the back of the blade to the tip of
the blade tooth (the widest point), blade width is
often the first consideration given to blade selection. Blade width dictates the largest and smallest
curve that can be cut, as well as how accurately it
can cut a straight line.
Raker
Skip
Hook
The Model G0457 can use blades from 1⁄ 8" to 3 ⁄4"
in width. Always pick the size of blade that best
suits your application.
Curve Cutting: Use the chart in Figure 43 to
determine the correct blade for curve cutting.
Determine the smallest radius curve that will
be cut on your workpiece and use the corresponding blade width.
Blade Width
•
Cutting Radius
Figure 43. Blade width radii.
-34-
Figure 44. Raker, Skip & Hook tooth styles.
•
Raker: This style is considered to be the
standard because the tooth size and shape
are the same as the tooth gullet. The teeth
on raker blades usually are very numerous,
have no angle, and produce cuts by scraping the material; these characteristics result
in very smooth cuts, but do not cut fast and
generate more heat while cutting.
•
Skip: This style is similar to a raker blade
that is missing every other tooth. Because
of the design, skip toothed blades have a
much larger gullet than raker blades, and
therefore, cut faster and generate more heat.
However, these blades also leave a rougher
cut than raker blades.
G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw (Mfg. Since 5/11)
•
Hook: The teeth on this style have a positive angle (downward) which makes them
dig into the material, and the gullets are usually rounded for easier waste removal. These
blades are excellent for the tough demands
of resawing and ripping thick material.
Tooth Pitch
Usually measured as TPI (teeth per inch), tooth
pitch determines the size of the teeth. More teeth
per inch (fine pitch) will cut slower, but smoother;
while fewer teeth per inch (coarse pitch) will cut
rougher, but faster. As a general rule, choose
blades that will have at least three teeth in the
material at all times. Use fine pitched blades on
harder woods and coarse pitched blades on softer
woods.
Blade Care
A bandsaw blade is a delicate piece of steel that
is subjected to tremendous strain. You can obtain
longer use from a bandsaw blade if you give it fair
treatment and always use the appropriate feed
rate for your operation.
The most common causes of blade breakage
are:
•
Aligning or adjusting the guides incorrectly.
•
Forcing or twisting a wide blade around a
curve of short radius.
•
Feeding the workpiece into the blade too
fast.
•
Using a blade with dull teeth or the absence
of sufficient set.
•
Incorrect tension.
•
Setting the top blade guide assembly set too
high above the work piece.
•
Using a blade with a lumpy or improperly finished braze or weld.
•
Continuously running the bandsaw when not
in use.
Be sure to select blades with the proper width,
style, and pitch for each application. The wrong
choice of blades will often produce unnecessary
heat which will shorten the life of your blade.
A clean blade will perform much better than a dirty
blade. Dirty or gummed up blades pass through
the cutting material with much more resistance
than clean blades. This extra resistance also
causes unnecessary heat.
Blade Breakage
Many conditions may cause a bandsaw blade to
break. Blade breakage is unavoidable, in some
cases, since it is the natural result of the peculiar
stresses that bandsaw blades are subjected to.
Blade breakage is also due to avoidable circumstances. Avoidable breakage is most often the
result of poor care or judgement on the part of the
operator when mounting or adjusting the blade or
support guides.

Blade Changes
Always disconnect power
to the machine when
changing blades. Failure
to do this may result in
serious personal injury.
To replace the blade:
1. Slide the blade through the table slot, ensuring that the teeth are pointing down toward
the table.
Note: If the teeth will not point downward in
any orientation, the blade is inside-out. Put
on heavy gloves, remove the blade, and twist
it right side-out.
2. Slip the blade through the guides, and mount
it on the upper and lower wheels (Figure
45).
All saw blades are dangerous and may cause
personal injury. To reduce
the risk of being injured,
wear leather gloves when
handling saw blades.
To remove the blade:
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. Release the blade tension by turning the
blade tension quick release lever to the left.
3. Remove the table insert and the table pin.
Adjust the upper and lower guide bearings as
far away as possible from the blade.
4. Open the upper and lower wheel covers, and
with gloved hands, slide the blade off both
wheels.
5. Rotate the blade 90˚ and slide it through the
slot in the table.
Figure 45. Placing blade on the wheels.
3. Tighten the blade tension quick release.
4. Apply tension to the blade by turning the tension control knob. Rotate the upper wheel
slowly by hand as tension is applied to allow
the blade to center itself on the wheel. Adjust
tracking if needed.
5. Adjust tension as described Page 24.
6. Adjust the upper/lower guide bearings and
the support bearings.
7. Close the wheel covers.
8. Replace the table insert and table pin, being
sure not to use excessive force when inserting the table pin.

SECTION 6: MAINTENANCE
Unpainted Cast Iron
Always disconnect power
to the machine before
performing maintenance.
Failure to do this may
result in serious personal injury.
Protect the unpainted cast iron surfaces on the
table by wiping the table clean after every use—
this ensures moisture from wood dust does not
remain on bare metal surfaces.
Schedule
Keep tables rust-free with regular applications of
products like G96® Gun Treatment, SLIPIT®, or
Boeshield ® T-9 (see Section 5: Accessories on
Page 37 for more details).
For optimum performance from your machine,
follow this maintenance schedule and refer to any
specific instructions given in this section.
Lubrication
Daily Check:
• Loose mounting bolts.
• Damaged saw blade.
• Worn or damaged wires.
• Any other unsafe condition.
Sealed and pre-lubricated ball bearings require
no lubrication for the life of the bearings. All bearings are standard sizes, and replacements can be
purchased from our parts department or bearing
supply store.
Monthly Check:
• V-belt tension, damage, or wear.
• Clean/vacuum dust buildup from inside cabinet and off motor.
For adjustment controls, an occasional “shot” of
light oil is all that is necessary. Wipe off any sawdust with a clean cloth, towel or dry paint brush,
and spray on the lubricant. Do not get oil on the
pulleys or V-belt because it could cause belt deterioration and slipping.
Cleaning
Cleaning the Model G0457 is relatively easy.
Vacuum excess wood chips and sawdust, and
wipe off the remaining dust with a dry cloth. If any
resin has built up, use a resin dissolving cleaner
to remove it. Treat all unpainted cast iron and steel
with a non-staining lubricant after cleaning.

Table Trunnions
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. Wipe the old grease off the bearing surfaces
of the table trunnions. Start with the outward
side of the table trunnions (Figure 58) when
the table is at 0°, then tilt the table to 45° and
wipe off the inward side. The old grease will
be contaminated with sawdust, so you want
to remove as much of it as you can.
Note: For easiest access to the trunnions and
the best cleaning results, consider removing
the table during this procedure.
Redressing Rubber
Tires
As the bandsaw ages, the rubber tires on the
wheels may need to be redressed if they harden or
glaze over. Redressing the rubber tires improves
blade tracking and reduces vibration/blade lead.
If the rubber tires become too worn, then blade
tracking will become extremely difficult. At that
point, redressing will no longer be effective and
the rubber tires must be replaced.
To redress the rubber tires:
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. Put on heavy leather gloves.
Inward Side
3. Remove the blade.

4. Clean any built-up sawdust from the rubber
tires.
5. Hold 100 grit sandpaper against the rubber tire and rotate the wheel by hand. Only
redress the rubber enough to expose a fresh
rubber surface.
4. Use a small, clean brush to apply NLGI#2 or
equivalent automotive-grade multi-purpose
grease to the trunnion bearing surfaces. After
applying, tilt the table back and forth from 0°
to 45° to distribute the grease.

Checking V-Belt
To ensure optimum power transmission from the
motor to the blade, the V-belt must be in good
condition and operate under proper tension. The
belt should be checked for cracks, fraying, and
wear. Belt tension should be checked at least
every 3 months—more often if the bandsaw is
used daily.
To check the V-belt:
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. Open the lower wheel cover.
3. Push the center of the V-belt. Note the
amount of deflection.
—If deflection is more than 3⁄8", tighten the
V-belt.
4. Note the condition of the V-belt.
—If the V-belt is cracked, frayed, or glazed;
it should be replaced as soon as convenient.

Shimming Table
Blade Lead
To ensure accuracy when cutting stacked
workpieces, the table should be 90˚ to the back of
the blade as shown in Figure 62. If the table is not
perpendicular to the back of the blade, the table
needs to be shimmed.
Bandsaw blades sometimes wander off the cut
line when sawing, as shown in Figure 63. This is
called blade lead. Blade lead is commonly caused
by too fast of a feed rate, a dull or abused blade,
or improper tension. If your blade is sharp/undamaged and you still have blade lead, perform the
following instructions.
Shims can be made of any durable object that
can be sandwiched between the table and the
trunnions. We recommend using shim washers or
shim stock because of the wide range of available
thicknesses. These items can be purchased at
your local hardware store.
Figure 63. Blade leading away from line of cut.
Front
Back
Figure 62. Squaring table to blade back.
To shim the table:
1. Make sure that the blade is tracking properly
and that it is correctly tensioned.
2. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
3. Loosen the table mounting bolts that secure
the table to the trunnion.
4. Place shims between the table and the trunnion to position the table in the desired direction.
5. Follow the Aligning Table instructions on
Page 22 to complete this procedure.
G0457 14" Industrial Bandsaw (Mfg. Since 5/11)
Correct blade lead
1. Use less pressure when feeding the workpiece
through the cut.
2. Check that the miter slot or fence is parallel
to the blade line, and correct if necessary.
3. Check for proper blade tension. If the blade
tension is correct and it is not convenient to
replace the blade, compensate for lead by
skewing the fence or adjusting the table.
Skewing your fence
1. Cut a piece of scrap wood approximately 3⁄4"
thick x 3" wide x 17" long. On a wide face of
the board, draw a straight line parallel to the
long edge.
2. Cut halfway through the board on the line by
pushing it into the blade. Turn the bandsaw
OFF and wait for the blade to stop.
-47-
3. Clamp the board to the bandsaw table without moving it. Now slide the fence over to
the board so it barely touches one end of the
board.
4. Loosen the four cap screws on top of the
fence.
5. Skew the fence so it is parallel to the edge of
the scrap piece. You may need to re-adjust
the fence locking mechanisms to gain maximum adjustment.
6. While maintaining the skew, tighten the cap
screws.
NOTICE
Lead adjustments will change when new
blades are mounted on the saw.
-48-
Shifting Table
1. On a scrap piece of wood, mark a line that is
perpendicular to the front edge.
2. Cut halfway through the board on the line by
pushing it into the blade.
3. Turn the bandsaw OFF and wait for the blade
to stop.
4. Loosen the table mounting bolts, shift the
table to compensate for the blade lead, then
retighten the bolts.
5. Repeat Steps 1–4 until the blade cuts
straight.
NOTICE
If the table is shifted, the fence will need
to be re-aligned, and the blade guides and
blade support will need to be re-adjusted.

Coplanar wheels automatically track the blade
by balancing it on the crown of the wheel. This is
known as coplanar tracking.
To check if your wheels are coplanar:
1. Make the "Coplanarity Gauge" shown in
Figure 64.
Note: For best results, straighten the 2x4
with a jointer before cutting.
2. Remove the fence and table, then open both
wheel covers.
3. Make sure the guide blocks and rear support bearings are away from the blade, then
tighten your blade to the tension that it will be
used during operation.

4. Place your coplanarity gauge up against both
wheels in the positions shown in Figure 65.
5. The adjustment hub allows you to move the
lower wheel in the desired direction. Turning
all the bolts clockwise in equal amounts pushes the wheel forward. Turning all the bolts
counterclockwise brings the wheel backward,
closer to the adjustment hub. Used individually, each bolt can control the direction that
the wheel tilts.

6. Adjust the tracking knob to get both wheels
parallel. If the wheels won’t go parallel to
each other, then move the lower wheel at the
adjustment hub so they line up.
7. If the wheels will go parallel but not coplanar,
then move the lower wheel at the adjustment
hub (Figure 66) as necessary.
8. Figure 67 shows the positions of the wheels
when coplanar. When your wheels are coplanar, readjust the guide blocks and rear support bearings, and replace the wheel covers.
Note: The blade may track slightly OFF center
when the wheels are coplanar. This is natural
because the blade will be balanced ON the crown
of the tire, rather than just in the center of the tire.
This will be more noticeable with larger blades.
