I second that. A good thing to have. If I had one it would speed up my build for a least two weeks

I have the WEN band saw as well. I also got a Lenox 13tpi blade, and it cuts through metals like butter. The stock blade worked, but required a bit more clean up after.

I did a blog post that has a picture of the blade here

I have a wood bandsaw, works fine for aluminum, just keep boelube or cutting oil handy. I also have a lathe, vertical mill, 3’ brake and 3’ shear. If you have a line on any of those, you’d be surprised how much you use it.
