Overall Rating for Powermatic 1791800 PM1800 18" Bandsaw
A satisfied PM1800 Bandsaw owner
By Erwin from Grahamsville, NY on February 9, 2012
Pros:It is powerfull and amazingly quiet.
Cons:The guard on the lower blade guide does not swing open enough to change the saw blade easily. The bolts on the guard must be loosened in order to facilitate the change.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
