Mathieu,

I have a Delta Band saw that I love. Blade change is dead easy and  
the guides are easy to adjust after you get the hang of it. No  
vibration at all. If there is vibration it means that something's not  
right (bent input shaft, bad shimming to the floor, bad initial first  
setup, wheel out of true, etc).

In my humble opinion the best band saw on the market. Bil Baird had a  
Rockwell/Delta saw that lasted him for over forty years. Literally  
thousands of marionettes were made with that one. Ours is slightly  
newer, but I plan on passing it down to my son if he wants it.

Sincerely,

David J. Syrotiak
