« Part 3: Band Saw Part 4 of Shop Upgrades series Part 5: Band Saw Assembly Part 2 »

Started assembling my Craftsman 14” Band Saw today. Aside from a broken minor plastic part discovered during unpacking everything seems to be going together easily. Instructions are reasonably laid out. A few items I would have worded differently and added better illustrations. Left assembly in process for tonight. Still have table to bolt to trunnion and tune the saw.

Not the fanciest saw on the block, but I think it will do as a starter or possibly for several years if my needs don’t increase. It was a coin toss decision to buy one as most of what I do so far can be handed by table saw, router table and a jig saw. However, it went on sale and my Sears points were about to expire (good excuse right?) so it dropped the price below $300 out the door.

Eager to finish up assembly tomorrow and give it a test run. Next will be getting a 2nd blade
