For someone who would use a band saw every couple of months, This is cheap enough. What do the rest of you think?

It looks very similar to the smaller one that Axminster used to sell and which was my first bandsaw. Still have it. It's a cracking little bandsaw. You can get an after-market fence IIRC from Axminster which can be retrofitted and well worth it.

But you must sling the blade and buy a decent one from Ian at Tuffsaws.

Thanks for your reply and the video from lofty. I have not cut anything yet and managed to strip a thread on the rear bottom blade guide. I'll have a think about fixing that
