A grand or so???? Holy crap that’s more than my whole shop! Whatya sawing redwood trees into boards?

Well, my less than humble advice is to decide what you will be doing most with it. If it’s mainly a lot of resawing, yeah…get the biggest, beefiest machine you can. If you want it mainly for cutting curvy stuff, you don’t need to spend much.

I have a Rigid saw that cost about $300. I’ve never encountered a need too great for it. Sure, it bogs down sometimes, but that’s cool. Also, look into how much blades will run you. That is an eternal expense.
