Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

The band saw is a straightforward power tool and a valuable addition to any workshop. First-time author Graves begins with an introduction to the history of the band saw. A big plus is the depth of coverage, as Graves starts with a very detailed examination of the tool itself and a comparison of different types of band saws with pros and cons of each. Criteria for selecting a band saw are discussed based on the user's need and skill level; setup and maintenance are covered with equal detail. This book really stands out for its scope and authority; a fantastic primer. Highly recommended for all woodworking collections.
