think long and hard on what your end use will be for your band saw. Generally small wheeled saws tend to have shorter blade life especially if you work them hard. check out some wood magazines back issues and web sites for some tool tests. They may have tested the saw or saws you are considering. many of these sites will have discussion forums that may also assist your decision.

Cheesehead has a good point on the blade life. Also, on a small wheeled saw, you are limited to the maximum thickness of blade. That will limit the tooth selections you can run. I have an old 12" Sears floor model and I can run blades up to .025" and get good life, but I would not go much thicker. I have blades in several tooth configurations but I run a 1/2" X 3TPI hook blade for most work, It's fast, doesn't use too much power, and leaves a surprisingly good finish.

I had the Delta you are asking about,not only wood,my main use was cuttin deer,It worked great! It was stolen and replaced with some yellow off brand (too lazy to go look for name)Piece of junk! cant adjust blade to stay centered with tension just junk!!!

If its for light use homeshop,or meat cuttin the Delta works great.

    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
