I'm a weekend warrior in the workshop. Set up was easy following the manual. Blade tracks fine and cuts straight if you don't rush it. Small footprint is nice in crowded work area and haven't noticed the saw being unsteady as mentioned in some other reviews. I will be wiring in a light for the table. Saw is well worth the money and I give it two thumbs up, while I still have them!
I was looking for about two months and decided on this one form all the good reviews. The manual was okay but I wanted more answers so I found timber wolf band saw blades and they have a very good how to set up and care for band saws big and small. I set it up to their specs and read about caring for the saw and couldn't be happier and will be ordering their blades. (Sorry Sears) I have nothing bad to say about this saw and have had no problems cutting circles and curves with the stock blade (nothing to tight) and will be getting better blades to do so.
This saw is a great buy for the money; I am just a hobbyist woodworker with limited shop space so I wanted a smaller unit for my little projects, this product was perfect. This band saw does need to be adjusted slightly out of the box to make sure you have optimal performance, but there are multiple online videos and tutorials providing suggestions and instructions. If you are looking for professional grade this is not the product for you.

I got this saw for light work around the house and it did not disappoint . The saw was well packaged and it good shape when opened . Set up and directions were easy to follow . The appearance and finish is good , and the performance is is just as good . This is not a heavy-duty saw , but for around the house light duty it fits the bill . Price verses quality I am satisfied with the saw , and feel like I am getting my moneys worth .
The saw came in good order, and easy assembly instructions. The table was a little greasy, but was packaged in it's own little greasy bag to keep the gunk off everything else. I look forward to many happy years with my new band saw.
1.8 inch will not stay on followed the manual word for word still it would not track tried to cut a 3 and half inch thick pine with quarter inch blade it kept bending would not cut straight using the fence i will be taking this piece of junk back
This saw is excellent! I can cut some pretty intricate shapes on this band saw. It is not to heavy in case you need to move it around. It does not take up a lot of room. Excellent buy for the Do It Yourself guys. Highly recommend.
I have had this saw about 2 months. I am a novice when using a band saw. Does a real nice job. Powerful and accurate cuts. Pretty quiet as well. Dust collection not so good, but I bought this to cut thru wood. The band does not twist too bad when making tight turns. The biggest selling point to me was the ball bearing guides where the blade runs down to the table. Some other models use two pins. Only complaint is limited availability of the 70.5 inch long blades. Sears is about the only place that carries them. I knew that when I bought it. I did a lot of research on other make / retailer saws before I purchased this one. I think you can get them from some online retailers like A*azon. Overall so far very happy. In a year or so I hope I can remember to do a follow up review.

The manual is not accurate in regards to setting up a band saw. The best instruction that I have found is Band Saw Clinic with Alex Snodgrass on youtube. I have included the link below. This video will cover all phases of band saw setup. It will be worth your time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGbZqWac0jU
