Will this cut tree branches for coaster and other projects?
Asked by: Mkmilburn
If the diameter of the tree branch is 3.75 inches or less, then it will fit in the saw.

Does this have a fence

I want to use this to also cut straight lines. Does this come with a fence like a table saw?
Asked by: michael
Hello Michael this is Cerah with Ryobi. This band saw does is not supplied with a fence. When using the band saw for straight line cutting, the user can install a fence using an appropriately sized piece of wood clamped to the table with “C” clamps. It is not capable of making inside or non-through cuts. Thanks for your interest in the Ryobi brand product.

Can't decide on this or the scroll saw. Wouldn't this saw also do scroll work? Not a big price difference.
Asked by: Joseph
The easiest way to decide between Band or Scroll saws is to ask yourself if your going to be doing any inside cuts because a band saw cant do em.By inside cuts I mean circles or shapes in the middle of a piece of wood.

2.5 Amp 9 in. Band Saw is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 341.

I noticed that the box had been opened when I bought it, but it was the only one on the shelf, so I chose it anyway. When I got it home and put together, I found that it didn't cut worth a bean. The cuts were very slow, and the blade wanted to cut through the wood at an angle, so I couldn't get a straight cut. Upon closer inspection, I found that the blade was dull. It looked like someone had tried to cut metal with it. The previous "owner" had dulled the blade, then returned the saw. I went back to the store, found a 3 pack of 62 inch blades, and complained to the returns clerk. She offered that I pay $5 for 3 blades and my troubles - a good offer, and I took it. The saw now cuts as expected. Looking about on the internet, it seems that 62 inch metal cutting blades are not easy to come by. Not to worry. My friend who works at Ace Hardware says that they can make bandsaw blades of whatever length you need, right there in the store, metal cutting or otherwise. I plan on getting a metal cutting blade soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this little saw! I have had this for 3 years now, and it is one of my go to tools in my garage/shop! I have resawn and done most things folks do with a band saw. My only draw back is that the directions are lacking in proper blade tensioning, and in the trial and error method I popped a couple (could y’all fix that). Please do a video as well for saw setup and tensioning! I hate reading reviews that say a tool suck cause the information is lacking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hobby Saw This is the exact same model as the previous blue model, just with the new Ryobi colours. If there are any blue models left in your local HD, save yourself a few bucks and get the blue one. You have to set your expectations accordingly with most Ryobi tools, and this one is no different. It's geared toward the hobbyist/diy person and it's priced accordingly. Do not expect a 14" Powermatic if you are buying a 9" Ryobi. Setup is easy enough. Make sure you follow the instructions and watch a few band saw setup videos on YouTube if you need to. Setup is crucial for this saw to perform to the best of it's abilities, but once done, it does a good job. You are still limited to it's 3.5" cut height and 9" depth, but is fine within those boundaries. The only issue that I've had with this saw is that I can not keep a 1/8" blade on it. I thought it was operator error until I reinstalled the 1/4" blade quickly and without error. I'm thinking the low grade tires are the culprit and that is what I'll try next. Overall, I'm glad I purchased it, but Im already seeing the need for a larger saw.

However, the assembly instructions could be a lot better. The saw ships with the band loose. It is almost certain that it will arrive with the band not located on the wheels. Eventually, you will figure this out. They should simply say "check that the band is on the wheels before checking band tension. Second, everything seems to be adjusted properly. There is no need to go through an installation calibration procedure.Third, the function of a removable tab in the on-off switch is not explained. Removing the tab, disables the switch which you will also soon figure out and I guess that is a reasonable safety feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the curves my new band saw creates I recycle pallet wood to make lots of different yard "critters", Christmas trees, American flags - just alot of fun things. The table saw I bought about 2 years ago has been THE machine I've used for everything in fact got pretty good at cutting curves while being extra careful. Since I bought your band saw it's like a whole new world opened up and I'm disappointed in myself for not buying it sooner! The curves it cuts are so out of this world awesome, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Ryobi band saw!!! Thank you for creating my new best friend!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase This is a classic case of you get what you paid for. I did a lot of research before purchasing and still ended up going with this product. Perfect for roughing hardwoods (olive, cherry, hard maple, Purple Heart, African Blackwood) which is what I use it for. Yes there are some plastic components but again for the price and how well it works I’m extremely happy with my purchase. I did spend some time adjusting the guides for the blade but that’s just from prior experience and wanting to have a more clean and accurate cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I purchased this saw when working on a very personalized urn for a customer. I needed something to scroll out a guitar shape from several pieces of pine wood glued up. This saw cut though like butter, even though I was near the max cutting capacity. The saw is great for scrolling applications and anything that requires precise cuts. I would recommend this to anyone. Worth every penny.

This is a terrific saw for the money if all you need is a small bench top model. It has enough clearance to cut stock up to 3-1/2" thick, is plenty powerful, quiet, and easy to clean and adjust. They sell a suspiciously similar looking model at a discount retailer for exactly the same price, but the warranty for the Ryobi branding makes it worth it to get it from Home Depot.
