I have really enjoyed this bandsaw so far. I have had the opportunity to do both large and small things with it and it works great! The single piece column and base keeps it held solid and the large fence and ceramic guides keep your blade running true. My only complaint is that the is "exactly" enough room to get your 115" blade on to the pulleys. Once its on, it rests comfortably on the rubber of the pulleys but getting it on was an ordeal which I required a second person to help. I have used it to cut veneer, split up lumber, and cut joinery!
