RYOBI 10" BAND SAW removes dust with no noise except that made by the saw itself. The 10" bench-top band saw incorporates a radial fan in the lower wheel to create a gasket-sealed dust collection system. Dust is pushed into a dust bag through a 2-1/4" vacuum-nozzle outlet with 98 percent efficiency, according to the company. The band saw is powered by a 1/2-hp motor, has a 10" throat and a maximum cutting thickness of 4". Other features include independent upper and lower ball-bearing blade guides, an illuminated blade-tracking window, and rack-and-pinion blade-guide height adjustment. The Ryobi 10" band saw with dust collection, model BS1001SV, is available for under $200. Contact: Ryobi Technologies. Tel: 800-525-2579. www.ryobitools.com
