OK, so the blade isn't the best, but it's not horrible and I already have a starrett replacement blade for when this one gets dull. It has cool features like automatic shutoff at the end of the cut and a cast iron sliding stop for cutting many pieces the same length.
It can also cut angles up to 45 degrees. For $370 and free shipping with Amazon Prime (actually $6.99) this is a great deal!
It took over an hour for me to assemble this saw despite being an experienced engineer and mechanic for 25+ years. A few pictures in the instruction book would have gone a long way. If I assembled another saw like this, I think I could build it in 35 minutes or so. Its not hard. Start off sorting your hardware. Six bolts and six threaded holes means you are on the right path. The book won't tell you though.
The saw makes accurate cuts. Mine did not need any adjustments out of the box. The saw blade is likely an economy blade so I started off with the slowest blade speed to make it last as long as possible. I'm also not sawing anything smaller than rebar with it b/c I think it might damage the blade. Needs a finer blade for smaller materials I think.
FWIW I have a similar saw at work from the 1980s. Does great. My father also has a saw like this from the 80s and many vehicle restorations/customs later it still does a great job. Not as fast as my $4500 industrial band saw at work but this is for DIY/vehicle projects.
finally after about a day's worth of struggling, it's working. The top portion (most important) seems to be well made cast and I believe with a new American made blade, it will be dependable enough. Typical Chinese quality, just barely good enough to get by. You would NEVER find this lack of quality and poor design from any American made good. Unfortunately, I thought since the company Black Bull is located in Buffalo, NY that it was made in America!Read more ›

Works but I have done every thing I can to get it to cut square , no luck so far.Published 7 months ago by Al Martinek
I've owned and used one of these for 4+ years. It just now needs some work done to it. Reduce tension on the blade as soon as you're done using it. Saves blades. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Gary M. Reese
