A well used saw
I came to this site as I'm looking to download a manual for this saw (recently moved and my old manual is somewhere in a safe place <g>). While here I decided to look at the reviews. I've had the Craftsman 10" band saw for several years, probably close to five ( I bought it on sale when a local Sear's Hardware was closing). I had a perfectly good Delta 10" at the time, but as I make musical instruments the resaw capacity was the selling point - I snapped it up and then sold my Delta. The nominal depth of cut on this saw is 4 5/8", but the measured distance from table to guide is almost 5" (I've never tried to go that thick). I haven't seen other 10" saws that go beyond about 4''. and my Delta was less. For the gentleman that mentioned that the throat depth is less than 10" may I say that the 9 5/8" of this saw is also more than most. The size of the saw is defined by the size of the wheels, not the throat depth. The missing 3/8" is the distance between the "rising blade" and the outside of the riser housing. Again this saw gives a maximum capacity as compared to others. I would have bought the saw for the resaw depth, and at full price. But the addition of roller guides and the metal housing (nice to be able to attach one's "tuning tools" with a magnet, don't have to look for the right Allen wrench or the engineer's square) are a plus. For those with a small shop who yet want capacity this is your saw. It is portable (sort of). Let me expand on that. I'm 73 years old, and had an unexpected below the knee amputation a few days after we moved, and before my shop was set up. I was able to mount my saw on a new "wheelbarrow" table while sitting in a chair (and that involved lifting it to mark the wood base for drilling the saw mounts, then lowering it to set the base on the metal table and bolt it there, then lifting the saw again to lower it onto the "base/table" combo). It took a while, and I confess to moments when I thought I wouldn't make it (with the saw in my lap), but it took about two hours including the drilling. Please pardon the personal comments, but it should tell you that this machine is maneuverable - and I like to boast now and then. OK, the gripes - none of them negate the price/performance ratio of this saw. I'd like a bit more power, but you won't find that in other 10" saws either. The lower guides could be easier to access, but they aren't that difficult. I'd love a better rip fence, but one can handle that with shop made jigs. The odd length blade is a problem, but there are many custom blade makers who don't charge an arm and a leg for custom sizes. The miter guage, as someone said, isn't the highest quality, but then again I really don't trust better ones either - always set the guage with a square or protractor. If I find I need more power, or more capacity, I'll look into the Craftsman 12" saw - the picture on the site looks as if it is the same basic design. But this saw has been reliable for a few years now so I'll swallow my temptation for "bigger and better" until I need it. As to my gripes, they are totally irrelevant. I don't care what blade packages Sear's provides - I go custom anyway. I want to choose my TPI, rake, tooth pattern, and etc. for each use - I have six blades ranging from 1/8" to 1/2", and in different patterns for the stock thickness, one can't expect Sear's to carry speciality items in the way a custom maker does. The rip fence isn't a problem either - although I wish Kreg would make a speciality fence for 10" saws instead of just 14". I have several home made wooden fence faces, and I clamp the Kreg resaw guide to one if I'm resawing. When doing an accurate job, such as resawing 0.6mm sections for the ribs of a lute, one must do one's own set up. A planed wooden "auxiliary fence" can be shimmed against the provided fence to get a straight rip, and the resaw should be done with a "point fence" anyway. OK, enough rambling. This is a fine saw for the price, and it is a fine saw compared with the competition, and it is a fine saw for the jobs I want to do (which are, at times, a bit sensitive - although I admit that sometimes I just flip it on and run a quick cut). Best, Jon

Poor blade adjustments
Well like many others I to read the reviews on this Craftsman Band Saw, then went out and purchased my saw. I must say this is not my first band saw made by Craftsman that I've purchased. The one I'm replacing lasted me about 15 years with not one problem. Set up was easy, Its when I decided to change from the factory blade to a 1/8" blade. I spent over an hour attempting to keep the blade from coming of the wheel. Following the instructions word for word, I was not able to track the blade in the center of the wheel. Almost every time I turned on the switch, the blade wanted to shift into another position. After 20 days of this saw I returned it back to Sears for a full refund.

Good saw for the price

I have owned this saw for a few years. I use it primarily for re-sawing 4 inch wide boards to make thin stock for Christmas ornaments. I have used it to rough cut items such as Adirondack chair blanks and other odd shaped items. For the low price I have no complaints. The re-saw capacity is very limited due to motor size and saw size, but it will work fine for softer woods. I have re-sawn some dense exotics with mixed results. For my use, when space was extremely limited, the saw has been outstanding. If I were not trying to re-saw, I would see no reason to upgrade to a bigger saw. I briefly had a 9 inch band-saw made by another company that was absolutely useless. As long as expectations are reasonable, this saw will perform admirably.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent

I just picked it up for the store. I spent quite some time adjusting all 6 bearings. After that I was able to cut freehand a thin veneer 2" wide from a soft pine. I was impressed. Also it is very quite.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Product seems fine but service/delivery sucked

Poor/damaged packaging, missing parts (that I could fill with my own junk can), major alignment/tweaaking required, but once done seems to function quite well. A good buy but don't have it delivered.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Solid quality but lack of power, bevel cut is a joke

This piece is smaller than you would expect though the size is clearly shown in spec. Plus the 3.5amp rating, this thing is only suitable for small-medium item cut (then why do I need a band saw? I assume you already had other type of saws, miter saw, table saw, circular saw, by the time you decided to add band saw..., even basic B&D jig saw does the job). The blade doesn't stay 100% vertically straight if you cut deep item or push it too hard, so think about cutting a long board, you'll see curves, and plus if it's high density wood like oak stair treads the saw will easily overload and stop in the middle of the curve, making your straight line cut even more curved after you reset the power and continue... It seems to cut soft wood like cross cut lumber very well, but then given it's width you can cut only short bars (at least one end has to be within 10in or so, and the other end cannot be too long to tip over by gravity). I'm thinking to build wood stand platform to make it support bigger (on the outside side) items. The build of the band saw seems solid quality though. So the solid build, overload protection, probably reliablity give it 5 star, while usability eats 2 stars, making the final rating only 3 star... Bottom line, if you only cut small not too thick items and don't require 100% straight/surface cut (like what table saw can do), or you just want rough cut of soft wood not exceeding the mouth width on one side, this is a very good band saw. Otherwise, if you really want to add a luxury band saw on top of your saw set, move on and spend more on more powerful and bigger ones, with any other type of power saws you can live w/o this small baby.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

GREAT!

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!
