Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcorriea Excellent saw at an affordable price!
I am very pleased with this saw! It is very easy to use because of the ease of adjustments. This saw needed little to no setup right out of the box and cuts beautifully!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DavidXJ Very Smooth and Rugged
$800 seems like a lot for a band saw until you see how rugged this thing is. Not only that, but it's easy to adjust, and has better adjustments than cheaper band saws. Things like the replaceable vinyl blade guides that can be adjusted inward as they wear. Everything is smooth and heavy duty and adjustable. We bought two of these for our Scout troop and they work so much better than the cheaper ones we had that we can't believe it took us so long to decide to get them.

I have owned several bandsaws.Disappointment after disappointment and dollar after dollar I finally bought this little beauty. Very accurate easy to assemble. Built very well. Not a toy nor is it junk. High quality screams every time I use this bad lad. Get it and don't waste money on anything cheaper in its size.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GregS Challenges with assembly
Assembly is definitely a 2-person job. The bolt locations make it difficult to use a ratchet or large wrench. Adjusting the motor to attach and tension the belt was a major pain - in the end, I tipped the whole thing on its side to get some gravity relief, but took several tries to get the motor mounted level inside the stand. Once fully assembled, mine did not work at all. I used a multimeter and discovered a problem with the switch. After disassembling the switch multiple times, I got it to work consistently. They put a protective coating on the exposed metal surfaces that proved to be a challenge to remove since there were limited solvents that would work. Finally, I would have expected them to include an adjustable guide of some kind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by minibutmany Professional grade saw
This is really great saw, the motor packs a punch and is fairly quiet. Everything is really easy to set up and the blade tracks straight without too much tweaking. The build quality is great and I think it should last my lifetime. The blade it comes with is OK, I tried it for ripping and re-sawing and it wasn't very clean. At the sale price I think this saw is worth it, but the full price seemed a bit much considering the saw doesn't have a quick release tension or a fence.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hawkmagg Pleased so far!
Assembly was a bit of a pain, but now that the saw is together I love it! It zips through my thinner boards like butter with zero hesitation. Safe, great turn radius. Only added thing that would be nice is if the base came with a caster system as it is very heavy and awkward to move around.Would highly recommend. Plus HD gave us a 10% discount just because we asked.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 753itsme What a great bandsaw!!
I know that Jet is a very good brand. I bought this bandsaw to cut metal.
Of course, I had to buy a special blade for metal.
The bandsaw works great, just like I knew it would.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edwards Excellent saw
Saw was delivered to store in good shape. Assembly and set up were straightforward. Did all the unpacking and assembly by myself, but the saw is heavy. Fit and finish are very good. Operates very smoothly. Blade that comes with the saw is average at best (not a surprise). Cuts well but leaves rough finish.
