Recent reviews of SKIL 3386-01 2.5-Amp 9-Inch Band Saw:

This a good bandsaw and it’s for those doing wood hobby. Its real light, may be moved around to other places if need be. You may be able to clamp it down to a firm table or bench to take out the vibration. I bought mine from Lowes, however may have saved about 10. At Amazon.

I’m surprised at how much it wobbles when it’s on. It does what I need it to do. It is about what I projected for the price. I use lots of other Skil tools, like the miter saw and table saw, and I’m really happy with them. You must get to understand their restrictions, however for the price, they get the job done. I’m just a little disappointed with how much the band saw wobbles. I am sure after a little tweeking on it, I’ll be able to make it run a little smoother. I could still recommend it, considering the price.

I received this as a gift from my wife as she saw it on my wish list. I recently started restoring vintage straight razors as a hobby and needed a saw to aid in cutting stock for making new scales. My tablesaw is kind of overpowering to be cutting 3/16″ slices of horn or wood and my scroll saw just does not have the umph to get through some of the bigger pieces of horn or most of the hardwoods I work with. In spite of quite some negative reviews I have seen on Amazon for this saw it included a rip fence and a fitted light, both of which I wanted on a band saw. I have had pretty decent luck in the past with other Skil merchandise and not wanting a freestanding unit or to be spending big, this saw fit the bill. Box was intact with no dents or rips when I received it so kudos to Amazon & FedEx on the shipping. Set up on this saw was pretty easy, the only problem I encountered was the screw holes on the bottom of the table had some extra paint in them so the mounting bolts didn’t want to start. I chased the threads on the holes with a tap and had no more problems. Table mounts square to the blade and all the guides and everything else had the correct clearances & settings straight from the box. Played around with the saw this evening, and am happy with it, there’s minimal sound or vibration and it looks to have lots of power for my needs. I split some buffalo horn in to 3/16″ slices and blade went through the horn like butter. My next test was some slices of desert ironwood. Cut right through a 1 1/2″ x 6″ part of the ironwood with no problem, I could not be happier with it. I could say it is a good saw for the hobbyist or around the house fix jobs. I could recommend you take your time throughout the setup to check all the modifications that are in the instruction manual and be sure everything is adjusted and tight before you start using it. I like it, nice saw for the money.
