The bandsaw is completely together with the miter and fence holder… the Fince holder is not so great but the miter holder seems to work well. I did some test cuts with the stock blade… not bad pretty smooth… did not check the drift yet … wasn’t seriously testing the saw…. not sure I could really even wright a real review for it as I am so new to bandsaws and woodworking… I also haven’t done a nickel test yet but I will do that in the am.
On dust collection… I would say a dust collector is needed… the few little cuts I made created a fair amout of dust. /so off to woodcraft I go for a dust collector (there goes the rest of the stimulous check… I think I only really stemulated woodcraft LOL) But in all honesty the crew at the woodcraft have been GREAT!!!!! Gave me a deal on the dust collector, hose and fittings I needed along with some plans a picked up. My wife was with me( I have learned I actually get much more when she is with me) sugested that I get an anti fatigue mat ( I have been having issues with my feet in the last few monthes something about kicking a workbench) so the manager I have been dealing with threw it in for me. Did I mention the staff there is awesome, they have really treated me great and are very informative and patient with me when I ask noob questions.
So its been a good day!!!!!
