Well, Delta came through…. I got my check today.. for the swanky sum of ~$350… So now what do I spend it on :)... Table saw.. or bandsaw..
Oh and lest not forget: They even bothered to overnight it… Now if they could overnight their tails to come pickup this hunka junk..
I have Grandfather telling me :Table saw
I have my instincts telling me I like bandsaw(I like the safety.. of no kick backs, small, etc..
If I go BS: Should i save my money(well its on the Xmas list.. :) ) and get a 17”er.. or another 14”er..
But then the issue is: a 17” with no brake(Griz P series) takes 5min to slow down… one with a brake puts me way over budget…
Or I could just build my own… as one kid in my woodshop class did… Big arsed blade, big arsed motor, big arsed table, used for cutting pallets…
