I bought this having read a lot of good and a few not good reviews.
Delivery etc was excellent, cannot fault that.
Machine looked good and went together fairly well.
Started it and the blade fell off instantly.
Opened covers to see what the issue was, slackened it off and put blade back on straight, ran it up and it fell off.
I had bought a new blade with it and trie this, but still it will not run true. Spent in total 3 hours adjusting blades to see if i can get the wheels to align enough for the blades not to run stright off, but not possible. Even got to the stage of turning the adjusting screw tenths of a turn, but came to the conclusion it will never work.
Not impressed! Sent it back. Waiting for the pick up now, as you cannot return this to a store, despite what the Screwfix call centre may tell you (wasted trip).
Nice machine if it works, as some clearly do, but i am going to look elsewhere.

Excellent little bandsaw, easy to set up and use. Ive had this over a month now and i cant get over how good it is, cuts through 2x4 with no problems same with 25mm ply and 18mm mdf. Thats all ive used it for so far but its a really good bit of kit, would highly recommend.

My New Bandsaw
The tool is delivered direct from the manufacturer and that was fine. I took it out of the box gave the band tension, plugged it in and turned it on for the band to immediately fall off the wheels. So I was nonplussed that it wasn't set up to work straight out of the box.
Anyway it needed a complete set up as all the adjustments were way out. The instruction book was nearly useless for making these adjustments but there are great videos available on the net to show how to do it. The saw now works fine but the wheels are offset from each other by about 5 mm so the band can't be centered on the wheels. I'm not sure how this will affect long term reliability but as I say the saw works fine.
Of course there is no miter track with this model so don't buy it if you need one.

Is the dust extractor built in or would I have to buy it separately?
HI The dust outlet is 40mm , i would recommend the scheppach ha 1000 dust extractor which is supplied as standard with a 4 piece adaptor set this fits onto the hbs 20 40mm outlet perfectly .

Will a 18TPI 56 X 1/8 fit this bandsaw
Hello I think 56 inches is too long as the top wheel could foul the underside at the top of the machine body , you require I400MM / 55 inch blade .

How do I remove the large screws on the cover ? I've tried various screw drivers but cannot turn them at all, I'm desperate to change the blade!
Hello The door locks open anti clockwise 1/4 turn to quarter to and clockwise 1/4 turn to o clock , they do not rotate fully like a screw , there are stickers on the door locks showing lock and unlock icons . .
Hope this helps .

Not sure of the terminology of throat, depth etc. I would like to know what the max height of wood that would pass between the table top and the top of the cutting blade
Hello The maximum cutting depth is 80mm , how ever , if most of your cuts are this depth you would need to go up to the hbs 300 which has a depth of cut of 175mm . Thank you .

Does it cut 65 mm timber easly
Hello I have tested this machine with various timbers and blades , for deep ripping up to 80mm you will need a ripping blade 12mm wide with 4 teeth per inch , the length is 1400 mm , with this blade i ripped acurately 75mm oak with no problem , as always when deep ripping you must let the blade do the work nice and steady .
This is a great little hobby bandsaw . Thanks for your interest .
