What a surprise. My nephew who lives in Michigan recently found out I didn’t have a band saw. He said he has three and has decided to send me the Ryobi ZRBS903 he has in his basement. Says he has only used it mayby twice and is brand new. I know I can’t beat the price as a gift but for set up what do I have to look forward to. I a manual available on line and blades easy to find?

Tried looking at Ryobi’s website, and they don’t acknowledge that they have ANY kind of bandsaw. ? Okay, googled it under the name/number, and it turns out to be a 9” saw. Very light duty, okay for sawing small parts. Definitely not for resawing.

I kind of figured it would not handle resawing. Definitely small duty. But with no band saw it’s perfect (maybe) for what I do. I appreciate his kindness and guess I can’t beat the price. Seems they don’t make this saw any more but sell a reconditioned (upgraded) version. I hope someday to afford a nice 14 inch saw but for now I am just a hobbyist.
