We all love new toys even as grown men. I bought this band saw because of the size and various features it has. All my large shop power tools are Shop Fox because it's for my hobby shop and it doesn't make sense to pay twice the price for the high end pro equipment. Shop Fox is a great choice for people like me who love to build projects and not break the bank. So far I've found the quality of these shop Fox power tools to be accurate and of good quality. I have their 10" Table Saw, Floor mount Drill Press, Scroll Saw, Dust Collection system and now the new 14" band saw. They are all working great and I use this shop multiple times a week. Great tools for the price point.
