They have to be tweaked very carefully. The guides especially need to be adjusted. I have a Craftsman and love it. It's my most used power tool.

Ya just got the craftsman 10" and absolutely love it.. swapped out blades in 2 seconds and running perfect. The skil saws flyweel was very poorly made and was off balance causing the belt to drag and the 1/8" blades to slip off. That's without the headache of trying to put a blade on that POS, you need 2 people pretty much lol.

I guess that's what I get for buying a $100 bandsaw even after reading the bad reviews lmao the 10" I just got on the other hand may be the best $200 I've spent in a while.

I totally agree. I've had my bandsaw for about 8 years and it's only had one problem. My brother and I were building a hood for his 75 gallon reef about 6 weeks ago but I was ill. I left it to him to do the easy cuts and he must've twisted the blade pretty hard with the wood. The tire on the top wheel got chewed up. He's definitely not a woodworker. lol Still, he has such a big heart and I couldn't even get slightly annoyed with it. Craftsman parts are always insanely easy to order. A new tire was like 20 bucks. I also love the roller guides. Great saw.

Well still not to much to update. Picked up some chemi pure elite couple days ago and put that in my reactor during my big cleaning today so hopefully that'll eliminate my little algae problem. This will be first time I've ran ferric oxide in my tank so I'm excited to see the results on it lol.

Been a while since a update shot so here it is.. as you can tell I've been fragging a little bit lol. I have 3 brains and 2 acans I'd like to get soon as well as 5-10 frags of my blue clove polyps and GSP.

I hate that you can get your tank so covered in coraline. I can't keep my alk up to save my life.

Too bad I have a box of reef crystals yet to make or I'd order some and give it a try. Dosing is for the birds.
