WOOD magazine review

This saw performs like pricier, better-outfitted saws

Review Summary

High Points: Demonstrated the least amount of blade deflection, about 1/32", in our test of 8 entry-level 14" bandsaws. Blade-tension quick-release lever makes blade changes quicker and could extend the life of your blades and tires. Comes with a miter gauge, and its sturdy rip fence with easy-to-use scale was the best in this test. Microadjustable ball-bearing blade guides help it cut tight curves. Table tilts 45° right and 10° left, enabling you to cut high-angled dovetails.
Low Points: Its 6' power cord is shortest in the test of eight. More Points: Bearing-style blade guides with microadjusters work well but take longer to adjust. Not the most powerful saw in the test, but cuts accurately and has nice features for its price.
