Howdy, This is my second post in about a week in site feedback. Don’t think I’m one to complain for nothing though. If I didn’t use this site and didn’t come back to it all the time, I wouldn’t make suggestions to improve the site lol.
I’m a novice woodworker with almost no tools. I’m checking the reviews for bandsaws that are within my budget…however this is becoming a bit of a problem since I basically have to sequencially search every review to see how much someone paid for theirs. It’s nice for people that earn a couple of bucks through woodworking to be able to afford laguna or powermatic tools, but alas, these are out of my league and would probably just rust away in my garage…
When entering a review, it would be nice to have a textbox where someone could enter the price they paid for the tool (eg: 299$ for a ridgid bandsaw). A little modification to the search would allow me to say “search for bandsaw reviews that are no more expensive than 400$” for exemple.
This would work for all tools reviewed. If I’m in a market for a handheld sander < 50$, I want to see what people think is the best bang for my buck (which is why LJ has a reviews section in the first place, right?).
