9" Woodworking Band Saw with Laser - Craftex CX-Series
This bench top unit may be small, but packs a lot of features that other 9" band saws simply don't match up to. The CX123 features a powerful 1/3 HP motor, is equipped with a high quality fence and has a heavy duty solid feel to it, despite its compact size. Sturdy metal top and bottom doors, solid work table, this machine is built well overall for a bench top unit. Our new laser guidance system helps to identify the cutting path on material when performing any cutting operations. Cut up to 3 ½"material in height with enough power to cut through just about any wood. This 9" bench top model band saw is light enough to move around in the shop with ease weighing in at 42lbs. The unit also features ball bearing guides for quick set up and tension system for ease of use. The precision balanced cast aluminum wheels and ON/OFF switch with safety key make this band saw a great addition to your shop.

This is an excellent small bandsaw. Within the size limits it is capable of clean and accurate cutting. The small motor will struggle a little if you need to cut thick hardwood. I would prefer a beefier table - this one is pressed steel, it does the job, just feels a little light, but at this price this is a great saw. I have an 18 inch bandsaw that I use for heavier cutting but find I use this machine more than I thought I would.
Works great used it many times since I received it.
Luv it! Great saw for the money.
Very easy to use, minimal setup required, highly recommend this saw for small workshops!
This is my first band saw so I really dont have anything to compare it too. I Have used it for a number of projects so far. Cuts straight and true and follows a curved line well, Even cut out an almost 4 inch thick band saw box. The laser didn't work when I got the saw but Busybee sent me one free of charge.
Very pleased with laser and work light could have bit more power
Shipment was delayed due to Covid understandable, however when the unit was received I put batteries in the laser and it didn’t work I called service at busy bee and requested a replacement laser unit (held on with 2 screws) I gave them my purchase order number and all the information they needed and they told me they would get back to me and I never heard from them again. Buyer beware
Works better than expected , wonderful tool
When my old bandsaw finally died, I struggled to decide with what to replace it with. And funny enough, the old bandsaw I had had was also a BusyBee product. An old B324 that I found at a garage sale 8+ years ago. I've watched dozens of YouTube videos of bandsaw reviews and read numerous reviews and blogs on different brands. And I think they only served to highlight that it all comes down to user preference and work requirements. I am not a professional woodworker, and my woodworking is for fun and household projects, so I do not need a high-end machine. And I was leaning towards the "Canadian Tire" brand in part because I am cost-sensitive and was at a point where I just needed a replacement to finish projects I was working on. But the reviews of the "CT" bandsaw had me unsure. And I could find very few reviews on this CX123. In the end, I am very happy with this bandsaw and very glad I decided to purchase it. It feels well built, runs smooth, and much quieter than my previous bandsaw. I feel like I've gotten my money's worth. I love the gooseneck light and dust air blower. The handle is a plus and while I did notice someone else comment indicating that they didn't like the laser I find it helps me, and I have mine dialed-in perfectly. I do agree with the other reviewer about the fence. And would prefer to see an improved fence. But overall I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this bandsaw.
