Back in around 1980, I came across a Hitachi resaw that cost new $500. It used a 3” wide blade. At the time, it was too expensive for me. Today, I wish I could find one. Does anyone have one and what if so what do you think of it? Ryobi also made them; there is a picture of one in the Mark Duginske band saw book, page 34.

Not five hundred bucks anymore, apparently!

Reviews of that saw on Amazon.

Lots of complaints of being under powered for re-sawing.
