  • Curvy Cuttings by the Delta 9" Benchtop Band Saw BS100

    Nov 22, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low Cost, Light Weight, Decent Cuts
    Cons: Initial Adjustments, Stock Size Capability

    Summary: Ah, tis the season to make project gifts for the relatives. Or, as I like to think of it, a great excuse for buying a tool I don’t have. I started my nefarious buying scheme early this year. I started in early September by hinting to my queen that she ... read more

  • Good Saw for the Money

    Apr 2, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good saw for the price.
    Cons: Some of the parts are a little chintzy.

    Summary: I needed a saw to rough out wood carving blanks. A band saw was the only tool to fit the job. I chose the Delta 9" saw because I've had good results with other Delta tools. I'm not quite sure what all the ramblings are about with this saw. Mine works ... read more

  • Great Value Saw, works flawlessly, very accurate cuts

    Nov 26, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great value easy to use fast and accurate cuts
    Cons: Doesn't come fully assembled Two uneven cords must be plugged in Lamp not fully adjustable

    Summary: This is a great saw. It is very easy to use and very easy to set up. It zips through wood like a hot knife through butter. I personally bought the saw to do some light aluminum cutting but if you buy a 3/8" 16 tooth/inch blade, it will zip through 1/8" ... read more

  • Not professional grade, but a good hobbyist saw

    Jul 5, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Decent functionality at the right price for the hobbyist doing small projects with well-milled wood.
    Cons: underpowered, cheaply made, unlikely to last.

    Summary: I wanted a band saw to cut curves on some smaller projects and perform similar "small" saw jobs. I looked at buying a full size band saw but decided that I just didn't have the need for a 14" saw. Sure resawing thick boards is a nice option, but with ... read more

  • Disappointing

    Dec 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price. Might be a good saw for small free-hand projects.
    Cons: Lack of accessories. Not the best quality. Made in China.

    Summary: I purchased this Delta 9" band saw because I was looking for an inexpensive quality band saw to use for small to medium sized home projects. I purchased the unit from Sears and chose the Delta over other brands because of their reputation for well made ... read more

  • Unusable

    Jan 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Difficult to adjust, very simplistic manual, did not make accurate cuts.

    Summary: I've wanted a band saw since last year after I cut all of our cub scout den's pinewood derby cars on my scroll saw. I'm a hobby crafter and use many small tools infrequently around my shop. I needed a saw like a scroll saw, but one that could cut ... read more

  • What a Disappointment

    Feb 6, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: It makes a great paperweight
    Cons: Too many to list

    Summary: I have had great experiences with Delta tools. I was very surprised that this product hasn’t lived up to expectations. If you had never used a “real” band saw you might consider this a useful tool but, this belongs in my Grandson’s ... read more

  • Blade won't stay on

    Sep 7, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: none
    Cons: poor design

    Summary: I can't seem to keep the blade from coming off the drive wheels. No matter what tension I apply, it never seems to work. Now I find it almost impossible to even get the darn blade ... read more

  • Delta should be ashamed to put their name on this product!

    Oct 9, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Inexpensive
    Cons: Totally useless as a band saw.

    Summary: I bought this small band saw to cut out knife handle blanks from 3/8" stock and to handle other small projects. After struggling with the saw for over a year, I gave it away in disgust. During that time, I replaced the blade twice and carefully followed ... read more

  • Better than the bad press

    Sep 9, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: A nice cut for a low price.
    Cons: It takes up two spots in the outlet when you use the light.

    Summary: This is a nice little saw! I've seen a lot of poor reviews for it, but it's a pint-sized champ for me. It does require a little setting up- like any tool in the Delta line- but once it is set, it works like a charm. It does walk to the left a little ... read more
