        The tool worked very well, I was concerned about the brand I had not bought this brand before, so I was a little concerned. But as it turned out I became very happy with tool and brand. I will buy this brand again in the future.

              Comments about Compact Portable Band Saw:

              I use it for small metal working projects to fabricate items I need. I popped the blade off when I was withdrawing it from a cut and caught the edge of the blade. Seemed a little too easy to pop it off. That won't be a problem as long as downward pressure - the weight of the tool - is kept on the cutting surface.

              Questions & Answers

               

              New Vs. Reconditioned

              Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

              • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
              • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
              • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
                New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
