Not good quality or construction. The first saw I got had the main input shaft bent on it and when you turned the saw on it shook itself violently, so Returned it and reordered a new one. The replacement one arrived and it runs pretty smooth, it shakes a small amount but I am ok with that. But it does not cut square, it is adjustable left and right to get it square but it is off up and down and has no way of adjusting itself, so it will always cut slightly off square. Also when I put it together I noticed that there is about 1/4" of play in the sliding material clamp, normally not a big issue but the problem is that when you clamp materiel in prior to cutting it it lifts it about a 1/8" up off of the saw. Originally I thought that this was the reason why it was cutting off. So i took it apart and re-milled the metal piece that was causing the issue so the lifting issue is fixed but it still cuts off of true square. Next time I have to order something I will go elsewhere and get a higher quality machine. Bottom line, price was not bad, quality is very poor and the machines function is passable. You get what you pay for.

Assembly is relatively. The saw head is a beast so you really should have 2 people to mount it on the base. Makes nice cuts.

Pros Easy to Use

over all the band saw is pretty good...I had to modify the holding clamp a bit but other than that, I am happy with the purchase.

This was the second one I ordered. 1stwas completely awful. This one works but has more vibration in it than I’d like. But the price was ok for the quality so, it will do what I need.

good utility tool to have around the shop, cuts most anything you put through it, have had a similar import saw for 30+ years and still works.
