I got my refund from Aldi as I never got my bandsaw, the family ordered it from Scheppach Germany great Christmas present absolutely love it. got it in 3 days very happy with it, ordered a new blade for it should be great for what I want it for, fingers crossedCouple of things...
finally found the time to unpack set-up the BS... one of the lucky ones, package was intact as were the contents.
Found set-up straight forward (thanks to all for your pointers) (had 2 or 3 mis-labelled diagrams in my instruction booklet that caused some head scratching before finally figuring it out!!).
The mitre guide is pretty poor and it fouls on the extending table (bit of fettling needed to sort that out next) and the insert being lower than the table is a pain when dealing with small pieces but all in all it is pretty good, TBH, I think for the price it is great value.
Tuffsaws... kudos. Their web site said they were closed from 4pm on Wednesday 22nd... I ordered my blades on Thu 23rd at 10:40am... fully expecting them to show up in the new year as I was well after the cut-off... after a flurry of automated order update emails yesterday afternoon (which I took little notice of) the blades arrived in the post today... Fri 24th ... someone @ Tuffsaws clearly working just for the fun of it !!! Hats off to them, means I can put in one of their premium blades and do some serious cutting in those 3 days between Xmas and New Year.
