      I have never owned a Band Saw of this quality. It has met or exceeded all of my expectations. IT is the perfect compliment to the table saw. I have never had a band saw that resaws so accurately.

      Comments about PWBS-14CS 14-in 1-Phase 1-1/2-Horsepower 115/230 Volt Band Saw:

      I've had this saw over 1-1/2 years. I bought it primarily to resaw lumber. Mine came with the 6" riser. If you plan to use one i recommend you do so before buying a bunch of blades. After shopping around, with the features included with this saw, it was the cheapest on the market. The quick release tensioner works well however i did have to repair the threads on the adjustment knob recently. The maybe a result of adjusting with it in the tensioned position? The fence that came with the saw was not squarer. I called Powermatic and they quickly replaced it. With the 6" riser the light is not in the best spot, i will be looking to relocate mine. When I purchased the saw I planned to use it occasionally. However the saw works so well I use it all the time. I set the fence to match the drift of the blade and get impressive results. It works so well i rarely use my table saw anymore for ripping. It cuts veneer nicely and consistently at 1/32. Blade changes are easy and the carter guides are easy to set.

        I've had a 14" Rockwell and a 14" Delta over the years, and the Powermatic is a big step up with a bigger motor, carter guides, blower, blade tension lever, and other well thought out amenities. My only frustration is with the fence and miter storage hooks that do not perform well. I also bought the mobile stand so that I can move the saw around in my smallish shop. If I had the space I would go with a 20" model.

              A:

              Powermatic engineers have made great improvements to the design and ease of use of their machines. The blade change on this band saw is much simpler than in previous generations. 3 hands are not required!

              Blade changes are quick and simple on this machine.
