2.5 AMP Band Saw
2.5 AMP Band Saw is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 64.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't level the table I bought this band saw about a month ago and have been trying to adjust the table top ever since. I can adjust it left to right on the angle with the adjustment nut, but trying to adjust it front to back (i.e, up or down) is impossible. The problem seems to be the angle adjustment lever. Tightening angle adjustment lever to set and hole the table pulls the table down on the adjustment side and tilts the table UP on the other side. And there's NO WAY to level the table once you begin to tighten the angle adjustment. It's really irritating and basically makes this machine useless. I know I didn't pay that much for it, but now it's nothing more than a paperweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the curves my new band saw creates I recycle pallet wood to make lots of different yard "critters", Christmas trees, American flags - just alot of fun things. The table saw I bought about 2 years ago has been THE machine I've used for everything in fact got pretty good at cutting curves while being extra careful. Since I bought your band saw it's like a whole new world opened up and I'm disappointed in myself for not buying it sooner! The curves it cuts are so out of this world awesome, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Ryobi band saw!!! Thank you for creating my new best friend!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this little saw! I have had this for 3 years now, and it is one of my go to tools in my garage/shop! I have resawn and done most things folks do with a band saw. My only draw back is that the directions are lacking in proper blade tensioning, and in the trial and error method I popped a couple (could y’all fix that). Please do a video as well for saw setup and tensioning! I hate reading reviews that say a tool suck cause the information is lacking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bench Bandsaw I purchased the Ryobi bandsaw as a addition to all the other Ryobi power tools I already own including a bench belt-disk sander, to almost all the cordless tools & accessories they sell and very please with, it’s great for all my smaller projects and does a great job at saving floor space at the same time. Very easy to setup and adjust, it has plenty of power for me cutting 5/4” pine & cherry material. The only CON is it should include a LED LIGHT because seeing your cut lines is difficult if your main lights are not good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid but Lacks Precision This is a solid little machine and has no problem cutting through 3/8" brass square rod. I purchased it with the need for precise mitered cuts, and it is not capable of what I need straight out of the box. The cutting table was warped and I spent hours sanding it flat, and the miter gauge is so poorly made that its nearly useless. That said, the price is unbeatable and now that I have leveled the table and purchased an upgraded miter gauge I think I can make it work. Would not recommend to anyone in need of a high level of accuracy, but is a good little tool for a hobbyist. Additionally, the 62.5" blades can be a little tricky to find if you need a different tooth for cutting metal like I did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great hobby bandsaw Purchased from local Home Depot. BOx did not show any outside damage but upon setting the new bandsaw on a level surface, the bent base on the left rear was evident. I repaired as did not want the hassle of returning. Compared to my son-in-laws 5 year old Ryobi saw, the quality has suffered. His adjustable height blade guide is a lot more smoother and without play. My bottom blade guide roller is kicked to one side so the guide bearing does not line up with the blade. Manufacturing issue as the securing screw threads are not perpendicular to the flat machined surface where this pin is inserted in the guide. Only recommended this because of the price and if you are handy at repairing things. Same saw as Wen and Harbor Freight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I purchased this saw when working on a very personalized urn for a customer. I needed something to scroll out a guitar shape from several pieces of pine wood glued up. This saw cut though like butter, even though I was near the max cutting capacity. The saw is great for scrolling applications and anything that requires precise cuts. I would recommend this to anyone. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw for the money! Would buy again! I bought this saw a few months back, and couldn't be happier with it. This one hits the mark, and i find it as useful asmuch larger, cumbersome saws. I have cut everything from 2" pine to .030 stainless steel sheet. Don't let its overall small size fool you. Replaced a 10 inch craftsman that was physically double the size, and this does everything that one did!
