I recently picked up this Craftsman bench top bandsaw. I know it’s not exactly top quality, but for $40 i’m not going to complain….. much.
Issue #1 – It is set up for a fence, but one wasn’t included. (I purchased it used) I looked up the manual on-line, and a fence wasn’t included originally, and isn’t even an option! Not much I can think of to do about this, except gripe. I’m going to try and make a table and fence system I saw on-line…..
Issue #2 – Blade Tension. I can’t seem to tension the blade enough. I’ve read the instructions through and through…. I dunno. Maybe I bought a blade that was just slightly too big?
