With its compact, space-saving design, solid, sturdy construction, and host of user-friendly features, the Masterforce 10-Inch Band Saw with Stand combines portability with high-performance details that get the job done. Offering quick-release blade tension, upper and lower ball bearing blade guides, and an extra-large cast iron tilting table, this robust band saw gives you all the features of a bigger band saw in a mobile package. The reinforced steel base can be bolted to a work bench or the steel stand (included), allowing this saw to easily fit in almost any shop big or small. The Masterforce 10" Band Saw owes its robust performance to a heavy duty 3.4 amp. induction motor that can handle a variety of cutting applications. Additionally, a poly-v drive system maximizes power transfer from motor to blade, reducing vibrations and allowing for consistent performance. Boasting a durable design and straightforward operation, the Masterforce Band Saw meets even large jobs head on without sacrificing ease of use. First, a one-piece welded frame design reduces machine vibration and flex, while adjustable table extensions provide additional work piece support when you need it. Oversized-ergonomic knobs are simple to use and provide maximum control. Finally, a quick release for blade tension makes changing and re-tensioning the blade fast, easy, and consistent so you can quickly get back to work. To help ensure precision a flexible LED light provides visibility without blocking your line of sight, an aluminum extruded fence ensures smooth, sliding action and straight, precise cuts, and a rack and pinion blade guide adjustment with an integrated locking knob for easy height control adjustments. To provide an even greater level of flexibility, the table-tilting trunnion allows working angles from zero to 45 degrees. Finally, a blade site window allows for easier blade adjustments at a glance. The Masterforce 10" Band Saw is backed by a three-year limited warranty.

I purchased this band saw to cut out wood patterns. We set it up but didn't use it right away because the blade that came with the saw wasn't the size we needed so we had to order other blades. First time we used it was only about an hour. The next day we finished cutting the pieces apart so that we could cut out the individual patterns. We needed to put in a new saw blade and when we went to change the blade a piece busted in the area of the blade tension adjusting knob and the quick tension release lever. Without this piece there was no way to adjust the tension so the saw was pretty much useless at this point. Bought the saw, only used it a couple of hours and already it is broken. Very unhappy because we are crafters and need the wood cut out for upcoming craft shows.
