If I can get this for $150 is that a good deal. I know it won’t be much for resawing, but I can live with that. I have space and budget restrictions. Is this a good saw for curves in material up to 2”?

Thanks,

Absolutely worth it.

Thanks for the reply. I picked it up last night. I gave it a once-over and everything looks good. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to put it to use until Mon or Tues. I am going to call Timberwolf and get their advice (and purchase) a couple new blades to replace the Craftsman blades.

Thanks again,
Chip

Great saw. Nice deal, best of luck. Get good blades and you might want to watch the band saw tune up video.

You got a great deal. I have the Chraftsman model that came out just after this one. It does not have the light or fence like yours. Yours includes that roller stand which, if it works, is a real bonus. I use blades from Woodcraft and also Olson.
I do like my saw but I think yours is a better saw. Let us know how it works when you get around to it.

I’d avoid t- wolf blades. Four new blades that I had purchased in different sizes all had defective welds which led to blade loping. Iturra design provides properly welded blades that will help you get the best performance out of your new saw.
