I’m trying to decide on a bandsaw and would be interested to hear people’s thoughts on several options I’m considering. I have read many good tool reviews regarding Laguna bandsaws, but also read horror stories regarding their customer service. I read mixed reviews about Grizzly, but have read many comments about their fabulous customer service. I wish the positives were about the same company…
I really like the motor break feature on the Grizzly (G0513X2B or G0514X2B) but have read some mixed reviews, especially on the 19 inch, regarding vibration issues. Laguna’s LT14 series has had some good reviews but the customer service issues scare me. Any thoughts or comments from folks that have either of these regarding pros and cons?
Finally, regardless of which brand I end up with, I would appreciate any thoughts on the best blades to buy and good/reliable sources. I will do various types of cuts, but the main purpose I’m looking to use the bandsaw for is resawing, so a good general purpose blade and resaw blade options would be ideal.
Thanks in advance,
