Looks very similar to my Jet 20", with which I'm very pleased. The only thing that needs improving is the dust collection, but that's fairly poor on most bandsaws I think.

Felderman,
I think the SBW 5300 is a generic bandsaw from some Italian factory...I have seen that number used to describe bandsaws from D&M, Axminster etc etc. I think it is also sold as the Eurosaw 5300.

I suggest that you could look around quite a few web sites to see what you can find.

I have feeling that the 5300 gets mixed reviews. Sorry but I can't remember where I saw this except maybe in a magazine somewhere...I will try to find time to look it up. I used the larger Jet bandsaws as my base line for quality etc but still ended up with a used Startrite 252..which is absolute magic by the way.

By the way. I think we are the two Felder users in the various lists of "what kit do you have". Mine is a CF430 combo.
