    Review for Amada V-AC-500

    I used to own one, It is made to cut out shapes out of the center of plates and has the ability to follow a heavy pattern. It can cut aluminum plates, I used to make pie safes and attaches aluminum to wood as doors.The bad news is that saw table has no openings to remove the blade. Inorder to change the blade you need to cut and weld it that's why I sold it.

      Review for Marvel 2125

      This saw is by far the most costly to keep running, in the past 2 years we have spent over $17,000 in repairs on a saw that is only 4 years old

          Review for Ellis 1600

          A nice piece of equipment. What I like about it is it’s still made in the USA. It makes accurate cuts. Way better than my old saw.

            Review for PowerMatic 140

            I got this saw pre-tweaked. It is based on a pair of well-engineered iron castings which makes it a very rigid machine. Less vibration due to its precisely balanced cast iron wheels. This machine has the basic four that I am looking for a band saw: value, convenience, precision and durability.

              Review for Amada CTB-400-CNC

              True to its product description, it is for high production, accuracy and economic cutting. All its product features are good. What is excellent for me is its drive wheel transmission which provides high efficiency speed reduction.

                Review for Porter Cable 724

                The set-up was easy. The directions were also very easy, thus, the convenience. I just made some few adjustments to it and now it's solid. I did not use the blades that come with it. I ordered my blades from www.sawblade.com. Cuts like butter!

                  Review for HEM 1500-LA

                  After 20 years this saw is still working like the day we installed it, We use the Folks at HEM saw to keep it tuned and in cutting straight, I have to say the factory support here in St. Louis is top grade

                    Review for Inca 710

                    Of all the 3-wheel band saws, this is the only one I would ever consider using. However, I would not call it as a heavy duty machine. My issues with this saw are blades keep breaking and replacement parts are drying up.

                      Review for Ellis 1600

                      Considered to be the most popular model of Ellis band saw. This is a good saw for general sawing. Convenience is never an issue since this can easily be moved to a different job location. Another convenience it provides is its one- step conversion from horizontal to vertical band saw. When cutting, the stock remains in one position for all cuts.
