What will you be doing with the bandsaw? For example, resawing, cutting curves, etc. It is generally recommended to buy the biggest, heaviest, and best quality bandsaw one can afford and have a place for. The reason is that the bandsaw must be able to bring the blade to full tension. A weak frame is useless no matter what size saw. A more powerfull motor is also a good idea to have. The BSE 1000 would be the better choice if the frame is heavier.
