4.6 Amp 4 in. x 6 in. Metal-Cutting Band Saw with Stand is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 67.

Compared to a cut off saw using a circular abrasive disk, this band saw is a huge upgrade. Unfortunately the worm gear started freezing up intermittently after a couple dozen cuts. Inside the gear box everything looked fine, maybe some tolerances were off, but the problem continued from time to time. I ended up returning the band saw just 1 day before the 90 day return policy ran out, though I intend to get another. The gear defect means hauling the band saw to Home Depot. Assembling and adjusting a new one will take a couple hours again, and the big styrofoam packing material is going to fill up a couple trash cans again. But it will be worth it if the next one works better. If you get one, run it thru its paces early on, make sure it can keep cutting without binding up in the gears. If you wait until the 90 day return window ends, you'll have to pay to have this heavy machine shipped back to Wen under their 2 year warranty; that might not be cost effective.

Like other reviews have said, it's a $250 saw, don't expect a professional unit. I had to shim the slide piece on the non-powered pulley, to free up some play, as the blade kept falling off. Fixed that problem. The only thing I don't love about it is setting the vice for angle cuts, there aren't any exact markings, so it's better if you grab a speed square and put it to the blade to make sure the 45° is correct. Other than that it works even better than I expected. It did however develop two cracks in the casting by the vice after less than 30 cuts. Whether or not It was just a factory defect or an actual weak spot in the design, I'm not sure, but I contacted wen customer service, and they were very prompt, professional and easy to deal with, sending me a replacement unit. Hopefully it was just a defect in this particular piece, and the replacement will be fine. All in all, I would definitely buy this saw again

Took about an hour to assemble and square up the fence. After that used it for several project's with very good results. I use it cut square tube and angle stock, works great.

Cuts aluminum, brass, stainless, carbon steel … even titanium. Worked perfectly right out of the box. Cuts dead square. No adjustments necessary. Assembly was easy using the instructions provided. Best $250 I ever spent.

Overall this band-saw is poorly designed and not machined well. Out of the box, the pre-assembled parts are not adjusted at all. You get what you pay for. Beware.

I think if I purchase a better grade blade it should cut a bit better and faster. It's not a high production machine by no means but great for small jobs.
