This 1-Horsepower 14-inch Band Saw Has Some Serious Kick
With its 1 HP dual 120/240 voltage motor and nearly 100-inch blade length, this Craftsman 14-inch band saw can tackle any serious cutting job. Built on a large, sturdy cast-iron base, this machine offers stability and flexibility with its 45-degree tilting table. For even more control, the band saw offers two blade speeds ‒ one for cutting wood and one for other non-ferrous materials ‒ turning it into a multi-purpose tool.

As an added bonus, the saw has an 8-inch resaw capacity and ball bearing guides to help reduce friction and lengthen blade life. Backed by a Craftsman One Year Limited Warranty, you can feel confident about your purchase.

Was not difficult to put together. Took about 1.5 hr to assemble and another 1/2 hr of adjustments. Used the saw to cut out lumber for an Adirondack Chair. No problems with table set to 60deg and 6 deg for angled cuts. I did make an additional purchase for a lamp to better illuminate the work area. Really a great value for the money spent.
I'm bummed because it's on even better sale now!!! Anyways, pretty sturdy saw. Base is rugged, total assembly was 30 minutes or so. Hardest part was getting the leveling knobs on and the vacuum attachment (factory should do this stuff!). Blade is decent but you'll need a few more in your cabinets for various projects.
I was actually going to purchase another brand however a craftsman band saw owner convinced me to get this saw. The saw arrived on time in good condition. It was easy to assemble. The tweaking was easy. All blade guides have easy access. The table is cast iron. A tip, as soon as you get the packing grease off put a good coat of paste wax on the table. Rust will form overnight if you don't. At least in Texas it rusts quickly. As with most factory blades they are not very good so I would recommend buying a quality blade. I have used the saw several times and was very pleased with it's performance. I saved over $200.00 buying the craftsman. As a retired guy, that ain't chicken feed.
it was not easy to put together. some bolt holes did not line up very well. when you cut wood blade has tendancy to go to the side not straight. the blade wants to keep coming off the wheels?
I bought this band saw a couple of months ago after checking it out on-line for several months. I got a great sales price on it so I couldn't pass it up. Using the original blade did cause a loud screeching sound. Only things missing from this saw is a light and a fence. Looks like I will be buying the Rikon fence shortly. Time to dig into petty cash.
Assembly was pretty easy. Did have trouble with the dust port installation. No room to install bolts. Used a flex arm for screw driver through the bandsaw lower wheel. Difficult but it worked. Happy with the saw. Wish it came with a fence tho.
have owned a sears bandsaw for past 30 yrs. This one has improved work table size and improved guide bearings and improved external control features, plus other improvements. Losses or dissappointments on the new model is that it has no builltin light. The btm part of blade guide bar hinders view of blade cut or kerf area for no apparrent reason. This could be corrected by simply grinding btm portion in front of blade at an upward angle to provide better view of cut when cutting 3/4 inch or less thickness.

I just got the saw and it looks like its made well no plastic. The thing I have a problem with is Min- Max blade is 1/4 to 1/2 inchs. I don't beleave sears offers a fence for this saw or if they do good luck finding it. Otherwise the saw runs and cuts great.
