Well the C-man bandsaw came in today. Had to drive 36 miles one way to pick it up but it saved me shipping so I guess was a wash. Anyway took about a 1/2 hr. to setup and start sawing. I like the blade guide bearings and it runs really quiet. I got the fence setup and adjusted. I cut a piece of oak scrap about 14" long and 3" wide. It was about a 1/64" off one end from the other. Don't think the lathe will notice. Cut some pen blanks getting them ready. All in all so far it has exceeded what I expected. The table is cast iron. So I am pretty happy with it.
