Sturdy built, high quality, great performance. It arrived quickly (before I could get the 220V circuit installed) and, to my surprise, mostly assembled. Only had a few things to set up and adjust (minor adjustments). Table was perfectly flat, 90deg to blade was almost perfect.
Really appreciate small details - all tools needed to adjust/use were provided and even a convenient holder to keep them in place!! Guide adjustment was easy (much easier than my previous band saw. Kudos to Harvey for that!
Suggestions: I did struggle with replacing the blade. Part of the issue is the instructions on how to do this. There are several pieces that need to be removed or moved out of the way. A little more detail on the process would have helped.
There were two knobs that were loose in the box and one was broke. A quick e-mail to Harvey was responded to within the hour and part shipped and in my hands in just 4 days. Unfortunate thing is that while the two knobs (adjustment for the level of the table front-back) are not the same. One is threaded and the other is not. The two knobs I received were threaded.
Final thoughts: I would highly recommend this saw and I am saving up now to buy their table saw.
AMBASSADOR C14 3HP 14" Band Saw
The bandsaw was easy to set up and use. I will enjoy this for many years to come I hope.
Came in in great shape.
This is a great saw. Powerful 220 volt and easy to change the blade. The guides are also easy to adjust. I'm very happy with this upgrade.
The Ambassador is exactly what I needed. At 3hp, it has not failed to do any resaw job I've thrown at it. This saw was easy to assemble and set-up and blade changes are pretty simple. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
Quality saw at a great price! I did research and chose this brand. Extremely happy with this purchase. Customer service is very good.
Very solid machine and very well packaged. This is my first bandsaw purchase so I was a bit apprehensive about adjusting, and setting up the machine. As I went through the operating manual, some steps were a bit vague. For example, the blade installation/removal steps made no mention about removing the upper and lower blade guards. Perhaps they assumed the purchaser would have already know this. In the end, no worries!! I figured it out and got it installed and adjusted just right.
Sometimes you just have to roll up your sleeves and jump in! I'd definitely recommend this machine.
After doing a lot of research and saving, I decided to go with Harvey. I waited for a sale and have no regrets. This saw has power, is accurate, and has a great fence. Super easy to set up. Thanks for a great product!
Great machine. Delivered well packaged and protected. Set up was very easy and quick. Cuts are accurate and the saw has plenty of power. The feature I like the best is the power off switch on the foot pedal, as well as the blade stop brake on continued pressure of the pedal. Great safety feature! Only negative I can see so far is that the dust collection is marginal.
