  • Ryobi or Delta 9" Band Saw?

    I am looking for a table top band saw and looked at the Ryobi and Delta 9".
    The Delta has a vac port but otherwise they seem to be the same. I intend to use it for simple 2X wood cuts of Hobby and Rocking horses for the local child care center. Both sell for $99.99.

    Any sugestions and comments appreciated.

    compare warrantys I would suggest. Im not familiar with either saw. Also, check the amount of metal parts on both of them. The one with more metal will probably run truer (is that a word evie?) and last longer. Dale

      9 " saw

      Also look at the blade guides and see which gives the blade the most support as close to the bottom of the table as possible. This will give you much more control.

        I know the Ryobi has much more plastic parts on it then the Delta, For me that is one of the things I look at when buying tool's. Obviously plastic break easier then metal. I was talking with the tool guy at a local home improvement store, wont say the name but it rhymes with Home Depot. And he was telling me that he get's alot of people who own the Ryobi coming in looking for mostly the plastic on/off switch because it broke and they dont stock that piece so it has to be ordered from Ryobi and take's awhile. Other than that that's all I know.

        My personnal opinion, the Delta seems to be built a little better than the Ryobi for that price range. Either way I am sure they are both good saws.
        Let us know what you deciede and how you like it.

          Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

          I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

          This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

          I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

          Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

          How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

          I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

          First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
