It would be better to use a miter saw or a chain saw (gas or electric).

Asked by: BoldSavage
I suspect if you went slowly & had the right blade it would. I haven't done it, but I see no practical reason it couldn't be done. If the ferrous metal were really thick I'd say maybe not (blade might overheat no matter what), but 1/4" isn't all that thick.

2.5 Amp Corded Electric 9 in. Portable Band Saw with Built-In Light is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 185.

During the initial setup I noticed that the lower blade guide bearing shaft was bored off center not allowing the bearing to rest squarely on the back of the blade. I called Skil and they promptly emailed me a parts diagram and said in 5-7 days would have the replacement part. After two weeks and no part I called them back. They said they would resubmit the order. Another week went by and no part. I called them back and they said I needed to call their parts shipping department. I called them and they said that there was no date for the availability on this part. Here's my disappointments with Skil. First, quality control should have caught the defect. Second, they should have provided email updates on the part I was waiting for. Third, their departments have poor communication between each other which caused me a needless wait. After almost a month of waiting, I returned the saw to Home Depot and bought a Ryobi which works great.

The replacement also failed, so I went with a SKIL band saw. It's clearly a better built product and the blade cuts straighter than the other previous saws. Plus, the blade was already installed, which is not always an easy process. Additionally, the light makes cutting more exact, because you can easily see the wood moving through the blade. The only feature I was not happy with was the 1 1/2" vacuum connection. All of my other saws are setup with 2" connections, so an adapter is required. However, SKIL doesn't sell one, so I had to find one on my own, which took some research. My suggestion is for SKIL to either change the vacuum connection to 2", or at the very least include the adapter, which is not all that expensive. That said, I really like the saw.

Well one bolt fit properly the other 3 are too short. Looked to see what I had to replace the bolts but of course didn't have any that size. Called Skil and lady ask what to do and she asked for part number of bolt of which there is no p/n in the owners manual. she pulled it up in her computer, verified no pn and to purchase at Lowes or Home Depot. Went to HD. salesman helping another individual. I tried to match but bolts are metric so no joy. Of course salesman disappeared. So no help. I purchased new screw head type bolts only to get home and are too small. Frustration is really building now. The bandsaw was made in China. I'm thinking there is No Quality Assurance at manufacturer to ensure pieces fit like they are supposed to. I'll make one more trip to HD Again at my expense to see if I can buy actual bolts and if I can't I Will Return the whole unit. To date haven't even run it yet. Very Disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely THE BEST 9" bandsaw available. Considering it's price point it is clearly superior to ... Absolutely THE BEST 9" bandsaw available. Considering it's price point it is clearly superior to it's competition. I have some experience with 9" bandsaws, having owned both Ryobi & Wen. This is the best of the three. I'll list the features & how the other two compare. Starting with the table, it is superior. Solid & sturdy, it tilts to 45' degrees with the same basic gear mechanism as the other two, but this one is built better, smoother, holds better, & is more accurate. It doesn't have superfluous decorative markings like the other two. The grooves on the Skil table serve a function, and decorative slots are non-existent. Right out of the box it required no squaring, which both the others did. The table includes a fence. The Ryobi doesn't, the Wen does, but the Skil is built better, & has measurements at both ends to make sure you get the fence straight, the Wen does not. All three include a miter guage, but the Skil is superior. Both the other two were sloppy with a lot of play & merely rested in the groove. This miter is tighter, & it doesn't just rest in the groove being held by gravity, it has a t-slot design so the miter doesn't lift out accidentally. This is how it SHOULD be. The Skil includes a re-positional LED light that you can literally position anywhere you need light. Neither of the other two have this. The frame & base are cast aluminum and very solid. Both the other two are welded steel and subject to variances in manufacturing straightness and flatness of the base. The Skil frame is rigid and the base flat. It is quieter than the Wen and about the same loudness as the Ryobi. It includes a brush to brush away debris from the lower drive wheel, where chunks & dust fall. The Wen has this but the Ryobi doesn't. The vacuum port is an integral part of the aluminum casting. Both the Ryobi & the Wen had bolted on plastic ports, & in the case of the Wen, not bolted on very well. The Ryobi's blade tensioning system is superior to the Skil, but not so much as to sway minimize the Skil's overall superiority. The Wen's tensioning system was a disaster day 1 generating 3 calls to Wen & ultimately return of the product. All three have a window to check blade tracking. The Ryobi is the clear winner here. It offers a superior mechanism and easier adjustment. The blade guard is solid metal on the Skil. Both the others had plastic components, & in the case of the Wen, fragile plastic components. The Skil blade guard did not track as well as the Ryobi when raising & lowering. It was annoying, but ultimately not a problem as you can easily adjust the side to side positioning manually. The Skil required that extra attention to positioning and subsequent effort, but again, not enough of a deal breaker to make it inferior. The access door, while plastic, is superior to both it's competitors. The Ryobi had a plastic door, but was was hampered by finicky clasps that appeared would break with much use. The Wen has a metal door, while nice theoretically, the manufacturing quality was so poor it didn't close properly, requiring manual filing to get it to shut. The Wen features the same type of closure knobs as the Skil, but the Skil's are of higher quality and better workmanship. The lower wheel adjustment setup on the Skil is superior to the other two, & the Wen's was outright scary, featuring massive protrusions that looked prone to trouble and the manual warned to check motor-belt tightness before even using the Wen, a sure sign of quality control problems. No such warning with the Skil, & indeed, no issue with belt tightness. The drive wheel's in the Skil are about the same quality as the Ryobi, & both are superior to the Wen. When you consider the additional features, quality of construction, attention to detail, & the price, the Skil is CLEARLY, the 9" inch bandsaw to own. The operation manual for the Skil is also superior to the other two, with clear instructions, helpful tips, and a logical organization. The Wen's was the worst. From a looks stand-point, I thought the Skil looked garish & unsophisticated in the pictures, but sitting on the benchtop it looks spectacular. The best of the three. The red somehow manages to be attractive, without being overly noticeable. Oh, I should mention the Skil's packaging design, while beautiful to behold, is inferior to either the other two bandsaws. It opens on the top or bottom and it is nearly impossible to extract the saw effectively. The Ryobi & Wen both open on the side, which makes much more sense. In the case of the Skil, OPEN THE BOX AT THE BOTTOM, not the top, & slide the box off the styrofoam ensconced saw. Home Depot should make the Skil saw the one they carry in the store, on the shelf. More features, better quality, and a great price make it a winner.

I bought this saw because I needed to make some rabbit cuts on the bunk beds I am making for my grand kids. I made 4-5 cuts and the blade came off and I tried for an hour to get it back on. I even watched couple of videos on setting up band saw. The blade would not stay on. I think it is a waste of your money DON'T but it. You get what you pay for - crap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my first band saw and I use it... This is my first band saw and I use it for small hobby projects and simple wood working. So far it has met my needs and has functioned well. I would highly recommend watching a video on youtube where Alex Snodgrass explains how to set up a band saw. It is very informative and prepared me for using this piece of equipment. The power is ample. I had read that it didn't have power......you have to make sure the saw wheel is tight , otherwise the band will slip and not cut . The light is OK, but I have a draftsman light that can be adjusted and gives much better lighting. My wet/dry vacuum hose did not fit to this band saws outlet and I had to adapt the vacuum. I used the protective top from a baby bottle which fit the band saws vacuum outlet. cut a hole in top for the hose and it works perfectly. Was cheaper than buying a new hose. I did not give an excellent because I am still learning. All in all, I am pleased and would recommend it. M. Brown

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw It's a great saw, I did a lot of research before getting it and am glad I did. Plenty of power for its size. Once dialed in it is accurate as any. And so far pretty durable.
