Stationary Band Saw - 2.5A - 9" is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for small projects I am relatively new to woodworking and am focused on making small items such as jewelry boxes. For detail cutting on smaller pieces this saw is perfect. I find I am already using this much more than I thought I would. Other reviews say this saw is underpowered and I could see that if you are trying to rip or resaw wood more than a few inches thick. But for what I do (small cuts) this is perfect. Does not take allot of room on my bench, quiet and worked fine right out of the box. If I get into bigger projects I may eventually move up to a bigger, more powerful band saw. But if you are new to woodworking, focussed on smaller projects or just want to learn how to use a band saw without making a big investment, this is a great first saw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from PORTER-CABLE 9-in 2.5-Amp Stationary Band Saw Under powered with a 1/3hp motor, strains and almost stalls cutting through a 2" thick piece of briar with original blade. It did cut thin stripes under a 1" thickness well. I purchased an extra blade of better quality and we'll see if that improves it. It does cut fairly straight and smooth if one goes slow enough through 2" stock. My Ryobi cut much better without strain but, is made of Plastic and pot metal and is why I had to purchase a new bandsaw (wore out). I would not recommend this for cutting large stock but, seems to be fine for thinner wood. Seeing I need a bandsaw to continue I won't be returning it unless it dies within the 90 days but, will look into getting at least a 1/2hp motor to go on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good saw for the price I didn't have great expectations for the saw, but it has powered through some pretty hard materials. I will say one thing up front its a great saw for the beginner. The motor clearly needs help on heavy loads so don't push the work piece to hard. Also, always have a sharp blade ready, once the blade it dull it will show quickly on this saw. It is great saw for the starter and on that is easy to learn and maintain. its compact size makes it easy to pick up and go to a job site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I see bad reviews for this saw but honestly I love mine! I picked this up at lowes for some chairs I was making and have had excellent luck with mine. The key is getting really great blades to match the project you are working on. I purchased 2 Lenox and 2 timberwolf blades of different sizes and tooth and now the saw works brilliantly! Easy to setup, changes blades, clean and use in general. Great smaller bandsaw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I've read the reviews, and I'm convinced that some people should not own tools. With that being said, it's a small budget saw, for small occasional use. Use the right blade for the job and center it on the wheels, that's why the window is there, go slow and let the saw cut at it's speed, don't try to force it and you'll be fine, I promise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Far and away the worst I have used... Title says it all really. Bought this as I have loads of other great porter cable tools. Read the reviews and bought upgrade blades prior to delivery, installed and tuned the lot prior to first cuts, very disappointed. Bogs down horribly on even 1" yellow pine, and forget accuracy... Tried multiple blades, very disappointed as was only going to use this for small jobs like knife scales. Nevermind worst band saw by a mile, probably the worst saw I have ever used, and that's even with having used an upended jigsaw for cuts in the past. Save your money. Wish I had... now to try and return this...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY HOBBIST I bought this about a month ago ( late Sept 2018 ) and am using it to cut plywood 15/32 in thickness.I clamp three thicknesses together, so am cutting approx 1 1/2 of plywood & it does a great cut for me. I read the poor reviews & have a hard time with them as I took it out of the box, did the simple direct Attachments and started cutting. I did not have to make any adjustments to factory specs. Great for me and my use and price. P.S. I use my shop vac to suck out the wood dust. I bought a rubber 2 1/2 Cap, clamped it on the discharge port...then cut a hole in the rubber cap just a shade smaller than the shop vac hose. I does a great job of keeping the dust out of the saw. I run both electrical cords thru same switch controlled outlet. Happy with this purchase. Picture of my product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it needs to I us this to cut small slices from hard woods to put into jewelry, I havent had any issues yet, you just need to know when to adjust it here and there, and just be patient and let the saw cut, if you force it of course the blades gonna cut wonky. It by no means is a fancy pro band saw but its 130, at that price what do people expect. If you are smart and take your time it should work just fine.
