(If you know me, your’e probably thinking: “Didn’t this kid just get a Delta 14” saw? Why is he asking about other saws?” A good question. I’m having a problem with it. I took off the upper wheel of my Delta to try and find the source of some wobble, which turned out to be a large crack running across four spokes of the wheeel. I contacted the seller, who is getting back to me, hopefully with a solution. Meanwhile, i think its a good idea to start the search for a new one now just in case things can’t be fixed. No need to “jump on the bandwagon”, nor is there a need for one to exist. I really don’t want to hear “shouldn’t have bought that DElta” or anything like that. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it! I’d appreciate it)
Does anybody have a General International 90-125 M1 14” bandsaw? It seems like a quality machine, with lots of great features, for a good price. (A little cheaper than a PM) But i couldnt find any reviews or much of anything on it online. It has a riser block option (i’m aware of the “downsides” of having a riser on a cast iron 14”), it has a really high quality fence, quick release tensioner, ball bearing guides….....While all those features sound great, i want to hear some real feedback from owners of this saw, the little things that arent mentioned in the brochure. Like, are there any inherent flaws in the design? What are some of the neat things about it? What does this saw lack etc. http://www.general.ca/products/1_general/90_bandsaw/90-125.html
I would also look at the PWBS-14cs, if anybody can tell me more about that too, or any similiar bandsaw with really nice features. Thanks!
