WOOD magazine review

Good curve-cutting bandsaw

Review Summary

High Points: Cuts tight curves and follows marked lines well. Steel guide blocks with thumbscrews make adjustments quicker than using bearings. Table tilts 45° right and 10° left, enabling you to cut high-angled dovetails. Low Points: You must remove the table to adjust the lower blade guides forward or backward. Moving the top guide assembly up or down changes the thrust bearing and guide block alignment to the blade. Its 6' power cord is shortest in the test.
