I have had this a couple of weeks and have done quite a bit of resawing and log slicing with this saw. I am very happy with the results, the sawed material need very little planing when finished. I have worked with pine, red oak, hickory, bolivan rosewood and cypress with no trouble. I would have given a 5 star rating had I not needed to do the minimal adjustments changing the upper guide height but it is truly a minor inconvenience as it only takes a minute, or so, to do.
I bought this band saw for my son for his Christmas present. Very fast shipping right to my door with no extra charge. He has already set it up and is using it. So far he loves the product. Seems to be durable and a great tool for the price.
Bought this for my son for Christmas and it seems to be a good saw for the money ($170 w/*************). However, as others have noted, when we assembled the saw and did a test cut, the blade tracking was off. Specifically, the teeth on the blade were hanging off the front of the bottom wheel by at least 1/16" and no amount of fiddling with the tracking adjustment on the top wheel was sufficient to fix the problem. Rather than cart the whole thing back to Sears the day after Christmas, we decided to adjust the tracking on the lower wheel even though there is no suggestion this is possible or recommended in the manual. Basically we loosened the top and bottom bolts hold the axle for the lower wheel in place and then played with them to modify the tilt on the lower wheel. This process is not described anywhere in the manual but by iterating between tweaks to the bottom wheel tilt and the upper wheel tracking adjustment (which is also a tilt adjustment), we got the blade tracking spot on and everything seems to be working smoothly. At this point, with only one day of experience, I would say the saw is fine for the home woodworker and that the tracking issues that some have noted seem to be related to a poor factory adjustment of the lower wheel, or perhaps shifting of the adjustment during shipping.
Purchase this bandsaw as an early Christmas present, Built a work table for it and took a little over an hour to set up including all the required adjustments. First project with this saw was to build dinning room chairs, it cuts through 2x's like butter with no vibration or end play (once you have the blade bearing adjusted to the required spacing) it's quiet and am very please with this unit.
I read the reviews on 'Woodcraft'. They rated the Skil above the Craftsman because the Skil was lighter. No doubt. The skill is made of plastic and poorly cast aluminum. As a 40yr carpenter, I say buy this. It is made like Craftsman tools from 40 years ago. Cast iron and steel. The others are pure toy junk. It performs like bandsaws of old. nuff said.
I bought this bandsaw in February 2013. 10 months later the brushes were going out in the motor. Took the saw back to Sears only to find out I had to pay them $50 and bring the saw to UPS myself. Decided to bring it to a local shop only to find out bushes are not replaceable in this motor. Do not buy this saw. Spend a little more money and get a decent saw that will last. I will never again buy any craftsman tool

Bought this saw so I can make new storm windows for my house this summer. I was really drawn to the extra power and the depth of the cut I could make. I only whish it would had came with some sort of pedestal, but I plan on building one very soon.
