Went to my local HD store to get a different blade and they NEVER heard of this brand and did NOT have any kind of blade for this product. I like the saw very much but do not like having to pay $50.00 for a blade somewhere else then HD

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little on the cheap side when it comes to use. Not really terribly impressed by this metal cutting band saw. Construction reminds me of those cheap 1960's Japanese tools before the made their stride into quality. Metal is very tinny and not of high gauge steel. Motor does not seem powerful for the few pieces of 4" square bar I have cut so far. Overall does the job for now but not too impressed or get the feel this item will last.
