Reveiw

A solid bandsaw that is well made and very sturdy. I tried it with wood and it was easy to use and with the narrow blade would cut around quite tight radii.

As you can see the blade is not very wide which makes it great for cutting tight radii. The only issue is that it is a tad under powered and so struggles with any side load on the blade.

The speed guide is a good indicator for a starting speed for a material.

Conclusion

A good saw and I must admit that a bandsaw is one of my favourite all round tools in the workshop.

You can get a larger bandsaw in the DIY shop for about half the price and quite frankly this would be a better purchase. Then with the money left over buy a fretsaw for the intricate work.
