The Craftsman 2.5 amp 9" band saw makes easy work out of complex cuts with a roomy 9" throat. Easily adjust the height up to 3 5/8" for the perfect cut to your chosen piece of soft or hard wood. A powerful 1/4 HP 2.5 amp motor works consistently at 2460 RPM, so you get the job done quickly. For professional or DIY projects, this band saw is the way to go.
The gray Craftsman 9" band saw is built to give you a spacious feel as you work. It has a square work table that can tilt up to 45 degrees. The rack and pinion table is controlled and sturdy. Change blades quickly with a quick release after you cut precisely using the bearing blade guides and sliding miter guide.

For the average woodworker, this is a great saw. It doesn't take up much space, and comes nearly assembled (just have to put on the table), including the blade already installed. I pulled it out of the box, put the table top on, and began using.
I have has this saw for 4 months. I have had no problems. My blade has not broke. Take your time cutting and you wont break blades, I have cut 4x4 2x4 and more. I have had no problems. let the machine do the work don't force it to fast. Motor is 1/4 hp. It has never stop or slowed down during a cut. If you bend a blade .im sure it would break but wouldn't all of them. Its a small machine for doing small work. if you want to force it then buy a table saw. Good saw
Nice small workshop saw. Cuts nice with the blade that comes with it. Needs to be bolted down or it will wall away from you light weight. So not really portable. Very quit operation.
I have had my band saw for about a month and have had no problems. I've used it to cut almost 400 feet of mostly hard wood. It could use more power, but with the correct blades for the job and it will do just fine.
The band saw was easy to assemble with very clear instructions. It is a very quiet band saw. With the guide on the table for cutting at an exact angle whether 90 degrees or any other angle it is very convenient as well for scroll sawing. It is great to purchase bands locally.
I really wanted to like this item since I used to be a Sears Craftsman fan...but the past 7 years, aside from most of their hand tools,,,their power tools are not what they used to be.I bought this band saw due to lack of space for a band saw and in hopes that it would be able to handle my hobby of woodworking. But I was wrong. In my experience, I am having a hard time cutting 1/2 inch and above, hardwoods and softwoods. The motor can't handle the size I am cutting no matter how slow I pass the wood through. I have changed the blade to a more aggressive cut and still cannot pull through smoothly. I recommend this item for people who cut small stock of 1/2 in and lower. The lower wheel keeps on clanking and the screws inside are getting loosened frequently. Im disappointed, however it could of been me that should of invested in something with more power. Like at least 3/4 horsepower. So I recommend this product for those who will use this band saw lightly, with light cuts. Including plastics.
