i had that saw years ago ,
the tilting body was nice ,
but i never used it .
i had to glue a sheet of formica to the table ,
as the groves made the bottom splinters follow the groves ,
and made my cut ’ groggy ’ , not smooth .
i think the fence rode a rail on the back of the table ,
making adjustments somewhat tedious ,
as you had to go around to the back to do it .
with a good blade ,
bigger is better !
eventually you can have all your band saws ,
with dedicated thickness blades .
then just change them ,
without messing with the guides .
