Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw

While browsing through Mark Duginske’s book, “The Bandsaw Handbook”, I came across a picture of a Ryobi resaw bandsaw that uses a 3” blade, (pg 34). I have seen the Hitachi resaw bandsaw, but never the Ryobi. Has anyone seen one or owned one?

I never owned Ryobi band saw. But as what I’ve heard, it’s not a decent bandsaw but not that terrible though.

Makita, Hitachi and Ryobi all make or made saws in the
same general format. Ryobi was a pro brand in Japan
but those tools were never much imported to the USA.
I don’t know if Ryobi still has a line of timber framing
tools or not. That’s what those band saws were
made for.

Have your say...
