The Dewalt Portaband is a fantastic bandsaw. When I first got it and tried it out it sliced through 2x4s like there was
no tomorrow however, when I tried cutting some steel it very, very slow. Fortuantely I had purchased extra blades
so after swapping them it cut through 7\8 steel stock like it was butter. Overall the saw is a great tool and it will be
used much more in the future.
