Apr 15, 2018 · Plus, the price can’t be beat at around $140! This band saw uses a 62 inch long blade, and accepts widths 1/8 inch to 1/2 inch wide. It has a 9 inch throat, and accepts 3-5/8 inch thick wood work piece. Pros: My band saw operates smoothly with little vibration. However, I’ve read other reviews from users that had opposite experiences.
