Worst electrical purchase ever The instructions supplied with the saw were somewhat vague. The two small wheels above and below the cutting area weren't even mentioned ans aligning the blade on the top wheel seemed to be the opposite of that described.The blade, even in its apparently correct position , would not follow the lines which I had put onto my timber and I could not cut the joints I was trying to make.I had no option but to return it for a refund. 1 Sep 2015
does the job Its ok for diy I got it on sale so can't complain about the price. . Probably not the best choice if you want a high quality finish but is ok for diy and does the job 31 May 2015
bandsaw Brought when my old one broke was not to sure how it would work as it was a cheaper model but as a DIY tool it is very good . 15 Oct 2014
Not particularly impressed Some of the stats are incorrect: Ripping Capacity is only 190mm, Max cut depth is actually 85mm. Not particularly impressed but you get what you pay for, we went cheap as it’s our first band saw and only for occasional DIY use. Difficult to get blade to run true, not helped by the fact the lower guides are +100mm below the table, upper blade guide needs to be within 10mm of the top of the work peace to achieve +/- 1 mm accuracy. Not helped by amount of vibration on the table. (The run out might improve with more tension in the blade but I didn’t know what was too tight and may cause the blade to break.) The height adjuster for the upper blade guide is not parallel to the blade or the frame, so the bearing and aliment pins would need significant re-adjusted every time the upper guide is moved for a different size peace of work. Also because of this non parallel aliment part of the guard had to be modified to allow the support bearing to turn freely when the guide is in a low position. (35mm cut height) Rip fence is quite high at 80mm and gets in the way of the upper blade guide if trying to cut a width less than 16mm, a shorter height guide could be used parallel to the provided guide to achieve smaller cuts. 20 Feb 2014

I want to resaw 145mm boards - what is the difference between the terms ripping capacity (230mm) and depth of cut (85mm)?
Are there resaw (i.e. wide blades) that fit this bandsaw?

Ripping capacity is the Width of board you can cut, i.e. no more than 230 mm.
Depth of cut is the thickness of the board you want to cut, i.e. no more than 85 mm.
I very much doubt that you can get a proper re-saw blade for it, usually they only go up to about 3/8" or 1/2" wide at max, it being a small saw.
