This is the new heavy duty woodworking bandsaw. It takes a longer, bigger blade than the older style. The first problem is in finding replacement blades. I like to use the 1/8 inch blades for scrolling work. These are only available online. Blades are not as easy to change as I would expect. A very good cutting machine that stands up to heavy use but this is normal and expected of Craftsman tools. The second problem is the work surface is not as large as it should be. It makes it more difficult to work large pieces of wood. The third, and only, problem is that the base is small so it ends up being a little top-heavy and "tipsy". It really needs to be anchored to make it stable. This is not real practical in a normal garage setting. It is a heavy duty cutting machine and I'm pleased with the performance.
