Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Englaise Great "Little" Band Saw
Bought this and spare blades and spare guide (have not needed to change out either blade or guide yet) last year and I have put it through the wringer with wood, brass, steel, and 2-inch-thick UHMW Polyethylene. I even made a table extension out of some of 3/4" UHMW that I bolted to the table using the two existing 8mm threaded holes. I also got a small Armorall Shop VAC and hooked it up to the port to keep debris to a minimum. This saw is by no means meant for handling large stock, but with the table extension I made, I stretched its capability somewhat. When I'm doing detailed work, off comes the table extension so I can use the provided fence for precise cuts. If you don't force material at the blade, this saw has plenty of cutting power, just let it do the work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ken70 For its size and weight, an excellent saw
This micro band saw effectively cuts better than I expected. Did 34" cuts lengthwise through 2" square aluminum tubing with 1/8" wall thickness with no problem with the supplied saw blade. Three ball bearing rollers support the blade on two sides and in back, which seems key to the saw's performance. Continuously variable motor speed between 395 and 820 ft/min is a big help. Blade change is easy. Couple of things could have been done better, such as the blade thickness adjustment and rigidity of the upper blade guide adjustment.
