Product Overview

Cut pipes up to 4-1/2 in. Dia or rectangular materials up to 4 in. x 6 in. in size. With 3 different operating speeds of 80, 120 and 200 feet per minute, achieve the perfect cut on a variety of sizes and materials. This bandsaw includes a durable stand with a collapsible handle and two 4 in. never-flat wheels to keep your bandsaw elevated and easy to transport. The beveling vise provides a firm grasp on your workpiece, allowing the bandsaw to create angled cuts anywhere from 0° to 60°. Make 45 cuts up to 3-1/2 in. Dia for circular material and 3-1/2 in. x 3-1/2 in. for square material. If horizontal cutting isn't your style, simply lift the bandsaw head into the vertical position and attach the included table. Ball bearing blade guides provide a long lifespan and reliable operation while the auto-shut off mechanism automatically stops the bandsaw once a cut has been completed. Onboard blade tension and tilt knobs make for easy adjustments and minor tweaks in-between jobs. The WEN 4 in. x 6 in. Metal-Cutting Bandsaw also features a workpiece stop for uniform cuts, a pre-installed 64-1/2 in. x 1/2 in. blade, a 4.6 Amp motor and a feed rate adjustment handle to make changes to the speed at which the saw lowers itself during horizontal cutting operations. And because it is a WEN product, your metal-cutting bandsaw comes backed by a 2-year warranty, a nationwide network of skilled service technicians and a friendly customer help line.

Have been using for a month and absolutely love it. 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.

This saw works great. 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

This is a great product at a great price. I am cutting poles for a horse fence and it makes it a breeze and much safer and accurate than a 4 inch grinder.

Great little saw, The base is nicely designed and easy to assemble. I would have given It 5 stars but it could use more horsepower. You need to watch the unit cause it will stall.

Overall happy but every now and again the motor seems to freeze up I have to take the belt cover off and loosen things up. It’s only in between cuts though it hasn’t happened to me mid cut yet.

I am a woodworker who needs to do a small amount of metal work on occasion. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this entry level tool. It cut accurately right out of the box with an accuracy of about 1/32` inch out of square in either direction in a 4 to 6 in cut. The vertical cut feature was really useful for my needs. The adjustments and switching from horizontal to vertical cut is cumbersome and slow requiring several different size wrenches and would not be suitable for someone trying to earn a living cutting metal. But for the occasional use the price makes it very good. Really my only complaint is that the motor seems to get very hot very quickly. I feel like even with light cutting you need to let it cool down more often than I would have expected. It doesn't smell like it's burning up but it does get very hot! So with light cutting and occasional use it's a great saw.

I bought this cutter for our farm where we build...
I bought this cutter for our farm where we build things out of metal quite often. We got it as an alternative to a metal shop saw with teeth. After a lot of research, I settled on this one as we weren't ready to commit $1000+ for a really good one. Got this in and just barely had to adjust it, and it started working really well. The only real problem we've had is that the original blade was dull right out of the box. I got a couple of other in and replaced it soon after, and it started cutting quite a bit faster. Just remember, the reality is that this and any band saw cuts much slower than a metal cutting shop saw. It even cuts slower than an abrasive saw. The up sides of this saw are 1. It makes very precise, small cuts. 2. you can set it and walk away if you have something else you can work on as it turns off automatically when it's done. 3. It is MUCH quieter than a chop saw, which goes a long way in a metal farm shop where many people are working around you. Overall, good buy. We will see how much we use it in the future.
