Alright folks, I need your opinions.
The wife and my parents both gave me a little cash for my birthday this year, I added some additional cash and started looking for a bandsaw. Was lookin pretty hard at the Grizzly G0555 based on the reviews here. I live in KC and can drive to their Springfield showroom for about $60 in gas, bringing the price to about $485 plus tax. A Rockler store around the corner from my office quoted me $495 on a JET JWBS-14DX. This saw also has good reviews, and lists on amazon for $969. Is this a good deal? The JET has a closed base and bigger motor. I have spoken with the folks at Rockler and WoodCraft, and their opinion is “the saws are similar, but JET used higher quality components and the fit and finish are better”.......thoughts?
