Marvel Vertical saw
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
We started having problems with this saw after ablut a year of service. So I started looking on the internet to see if it was just "us" or were other customers complaining as well. It seems that every review i have seen is negative. Thus I am posting a Buyer Beware on this Band saw. like many other people I am wondering if Marvel is having this saw made in Asia with the other saws they import. If anybody knows for certain please post
This is not the same Marvel as my 81A, we have had nothing but bad luck with this saw. We went back to using our 1972 Marvel 81A
The Marvell People at IMTS gave me a good sell on this machine, they said you could run this "Lights Out" but they lied. the saw is a pretty good machine, but not alt all work the money we spent. we have a hard time holding the tolerance on angle cuts, and its slow to go from 90 to 45 degrees. the blade take 30 min to change and all of the safety guards come off making big issues with the safety board here. the saw is best for a large company who wont pay attention to costs and has a maintenance department on site.
This saw cuts fine at 90 degrees, however when i try to cut a 45 angle it is not a straight cut. I had Marvel factory service here and the stated it was my Lenox Blades and that I should use Arnst. We have used Lenox for 20 years and I know it not the blades, I just wish the after sales service was as good as the sales pitch. The saw is good for straight cuts but not recommended for angles of fabrication. Marvel used to be the finest saw made, all I can say is that this is not the Marvel of the old days. Simply put, the saw is worthless for our needs.
