Shop Fox Bandsaw Review

I took the time to do a quick review of my W1706 Shop Fox 14-inch bandsaw after owning it for about 1.5 years. In this video I go over some of the features, give my opinion of the saw, and even offer an alternative Grizzly (G0555LX) saw to purchase. If you're in the market for a new bandsaw, be sure to check it out!

Key Takeaways

- There are lower-cost options out there for a great bandsaw, just have to look!

- It's tough to find a low-cost solution that is designed to handle wood and metal, so make some compromises when choosing your saw.

- Often times with lower-tier tools, the original manufacturer is the same, but is later re-branded with your favorite logo. Don't be so tied to a certain company or color that you disregard features.
