Blades that are 1/8" to 3/8" wide by 62" diameter fit the new benchtop saw. Assembly is required and a 1-year general warranty is included.

      Not as advertised
      The description on-line clearly states that the saw is powered by a 1/3 hp motor. It is not; the motor is only 1/4 hp. The saw appears to be well-designed and assembled, but the cast aluminum table is warped. It is not flat from side-to-side. Blade tracking is good; easily adjustable as are the blade guides.

      More time spend on maintenance.

      For every couple of min I spend using this saw. I spend an hour in putting the blade back on. Everything seems to be tracking ok but when you turn it on, about 10 seconds later it pops off again. Then adding insult to injury the blade will catch and kink leaving you to get another blade. What a scam. To bad they don't have life time warranty on satisfaction!

      Nice little saw

      I bought this saw to add to my hobby shop. I found it extremely easy to set up although the instructions were a little misleading. I have found the saw to be very easy to use, and other than arriving with a more coarse blade than I prefer to use, it has served its purpose well with me.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Effective but ended up returning it

      Used it for one night of cutting wood for my wife's projects and the next day when I turned it on the motor was exhibiting a bad knocking sound. I ended up returning it the next day after showing the Sears employee a video recording of it. While it was cutting it was effective overall, however when I took it back I traded up for the 10" Band Saw (21400) which frankly is a far better saw that allows me to make much tighter more precise cuts than this one is capable of doing. This one has pins that keep the blade stable on the left and right side and rollers in the back. It works but in the process of cutting you'll see occasional sparking as the blade makes contact w/the guide pins. Overall I would say this is what it is.. a cheap but effective bandsaw but there are much better ones on the market. Consider the 10" one instead.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      SMOOTH QUITE OPERATION

      Much quieter than my previous band saw. Cuts nice and clean and plenty of work area.
