  • little saw big value

    Feb 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: low price, easy to move around
    Cons: limited cut capacity, needs work out of box

    Summary: I purchased the Ryobi BS-900 bandsaw for $90 at Home Depot. No question, this is definitely intended for the casual woodworker, not the pro production shop. Despite its obvious drawbacks, quirks, and limitations - 1/3 HP, 9" throat, ~ 3 3/8" cutting ... read more

    Pros: it's a band saw and it's cheap.
    Cons: it's cheap and it's a band saw.

    Summary: The Short Version So, I needed a bandsaw. And I needed it *today*. So I trucked myself down to Home Depot and picked up the $89 Ryobi. I used it to cut a few things I needed to cut, disliked it, and I sold it for $50 on craigslist a few weeks later. ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, light, small
    Cons: Cheap, corners were cut in the design

    Summary: I have just started to do some house woodworking (trim, shelving, etc.) and I needed a bandsaw. I am a big fan of getting the best tools you can, but with this item I went the cheap route. I found this saw for $89 at Home Depot. By living at the ... read more

  • The Little Band Saw that Could...

    Apr 14, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: inexpensive, small, works reasonably well, fairly quiet, induction motor
    Cons: small, cutting height, throat depth, plastic door, some vibration, aluminum top

    Summary: Every work shop needs a band saw at one time or another. Having a little shop, limited usage, and small budget, I just couldn’t justify spending four times the money for the coveted 14” saw. My initial purchase was a three-wheel 12” band ... read more

  • Don't over-tighten that tensioner!

    Feb 27, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: cheap to purchase, easy to operate and clean, quiet operation
    Cons: cheaply made in some places, no rip fence

    Summary: Maybe I'm expecting a lot. Maybe I realized too late that the nature of what I want to do would maybe require a more expensive unit. Maybe i just don't know what I'm doing. All I know is that my ryobi bandsaw isn't terribly accurate, has no rip fence ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, easy to move, price
    Cons: vibration

    Summary: I bought this saw from Home Depot for $99.00 (just after purchasing Ryobi's excellent Drill Press). This product is in a completely different category when it comes to quality. It is still good but after seeing their drill press I ... read more

    Pros: Small- medium duty cutting works well
    Cons: Not heavy or accurate enough for professional use

    Summary: Ryobi BS900 Band Saw. Good for the Home owner or Crafter with small to medium cutting needs. This machine is light weight, and takes up little space. Changing blades and setting rub blocks are a little time consuming. Blades don't track, (cut straight up ... read more

  • The wandering blade

    Rated Show
    Pros: The price is so cheap it was worth a try. The saw is cute
    Cons: The blade wanders way off the line right from the start.

    Summary: This saw is bad. Can't cut a straight line without turning the work 30 or 40 degrees. Even difficult cutting radius. Ryobi says ALL saws have this problem, which of course is absolutely false. So disappointing, I returned after 2 weeks. At $99 I guess ... read more

    Pros: Low price, miter gage and rip fence included.
    Cons: Quality and materials are cheap, excessive vibration, performance and accuracy poor, etc. etc.

    Summary: This is strictly a hobby saw and shouldn't even be considered for serious woodworking. I bought it at Home Depot and returned it the same day. Setup is simple but factory adjustments had to be changed, including blade tension, blade guides, etc. ... read more
