Anyone ever hear of Sheng Tsai tools or know anything about them? In
particular their bandsaws. Made in Taiwan. Some info is at
but not a lot of detail. Any good? bad?

Mike, I'm sorry I don't know anything about them. You didn't ask, but
I'll share my opinion. I do not use my tools professionally but hope
to some day. Even in my hobbyist experience, I've had enough events
with repairs and adjustments and support to firmly believe in paying
for name brands.
I think 40% of the price in a name brand is customer support and its
worth it to me. Jet is there for me anytime I have a question or a
problem and I don't have to talk to a scripted help desk in Bangalore.
I talk to someone who uses and knows the tools that speaks plain
english. I buy through a local knowledgeable dealer that gives me
lots and lots of followup advise and how-to information.
I dropped my Dewalt cordless drill for a fatal fall on the concrete
from 12 feet up. It was one year out of warranty. Dewalt gave me a
complete latest model replacement for $39.95.
I have one of their 14" bandsaws. A now defunct chain called Builders Square
had them on closeout for $99. I bought the whole pile of 5, assembled them,
tuned them up and sold them for $150. I kept the best one for me. It's a
crude copy of the Delta 14" unit. Works well for most stuff but I'm still
looking for a good deal on a DoAll or Grob.
