New management has had me working overtime since December, so I had some spare change to spend on a little band saw for the makerspace. I bought the Skill 9" saw, influenced largely by this review:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FF0doLVzWA
I'm impressed on the value, should've looked into these things a long time ago. It has all the adjustments of a full-sized bandsaw so if you learn this saw, you'll be all set to run a full-sized saw.
It was good to go out-of-the-box with the exception that I had to shim the table to get it to adjust perpendicular to the blade. The fence locks down tight although I have not tried to adjust it for what they call "drift". The miter gauge is pretty wobbly but I'm just impressed they were included one at all, for the price.
It has a 1 1/2 inch dust port which I think would be a good thing for us to use. Even this little bandsaws is going to be a dust making monster.
