I researched a lot of band saws. Ended up getting the Porter Cable 330BS from Lowe’s. This thing sings like a
swiss watch ! Tracking was perfect right out of the box. NO vibration what-so-ever ! I turned the saw around
on the base, because, to me, the door was on backwards. Now it opens front to back – like a door should. It
has a 16 inch table, not a “small” 14 like most other 14” band saws. Woodworkers was having a sale last
week end on Woodtek tools, and I picked up their fence – 10% off with a $10 discount – couldn’t pass that up.
Plus – this saw has 1 1/2 horse motor – so it should go through just about anything. I put it through it’s paces
with some 4×4 oak and maple – went through like “butta”.
