1/2 HP 5 in. x 6 in. Metalworking Horizontal and Vertical Band Saw with Open Stand, 3-Speed, 115/230-Volt, HVBS-56M is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11.

Had a screw or two missing, but easily replaced at local hardware store since screw description was in instructions. Definitely need two people to set up. Would be nice if it sat a little higher. Other than that, works great!!! I bought an extra blade as a result of several reviews I had read before buying. If you set up everything properly, it's not really needed. I've been cutting all kinds of metal up to 1 1/2" X 1 1/2" square tubing 3/16" wall thickness for a couple of weeks now and you can't tell the blade is even worn at all... So, great saw for the money!

Looks nice but this is the second machine i've had to deal with (returned first one no problem with home depot at all but wasted 2 days of my life trying to fix it problem was balde kept coming off wheels no answer from Jet just return it ???) Now with the second one the blade is not perpendicular to the to the metal and blade binds and motor stalls. So after the second day with the second saw I'm still not working on the project that I want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile We use this as our main bandsaw in our fabrication shop. We use it to cut everything from steel plate, roll cage tubing, aluminum tubing, stainless, etc. It works great in both positions and the last shop I worked at had the same model. They to used it as their main bandsaw for over 3 years of everyday use with no problems. Luke

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great band saw I've had one of these for over a decade. It's been used to build A LOT of DOM truck bumpers, various mild-steel projects, cut rebar, plastic, aluminum, etc. You can straddle it and sit on the base when you are trimming odd-shaped pieces, or let it cut by itself and shut itself off when completed. It's not the most high-precision cuts, (you might find it a little bit crooked when cutting deep pieces of tubing), but every shop needs one of these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ups and downs I've used the saw about three weeks and gone through two blades. The one that came with the saw got dull quick and the one I replaced it with broke (bosch blade). Now I'm on my third and still learning how to tweak the adjustments, could be my fault still learning. Other than that I like the way it cuts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does great for home shop use! Have had the saw for a little over a year now. Its a very decent saw for the price you pay. Cuts fairly accurate considering the way the guides are made and how close they come together. The frame is definitely shakey from being made out of what looks like 14ga. sheet metal. Could've easily been made more heavy duty for just a few more dollars by the manufacturer. But they try to make these things as affordable as possible for the consumers. The table they give you to turn it in to a vertical saw is basically useless. I'm a machinist welder by trade. So I used the table they supplied the saw with as a template, and made myself one out of 1/4" S.S. Made a world of difference when cutting metal out vertically. Also the automatic shutoff switch. I had to make myself a heavier tab that comes down to turn saw off when a cut is complete. machined one myself out of 1/8" S.S., and works like a charm now. The one they supplied was very thin and cheap and wouldn't work most of the time. Also be careful when your wheeling it around, tends to be very top heavy with the cheap frame it sits on. Had it flip over on me one day wheeling it around shop, and bent motor frame . Luckily I was able to straighten it out. My solution to this, was strap a bungee cord over the end of it while wheeling it around. Overall at my home shop, it has done everything I needed it to do and some! I would definitely recommend this saw to someone for home shop use, and one buy one again today if I had to. Just wish they would've made a little bit heavier duty support frame.
