I am in need of a bandsaw and have done all the typical searching.
Weight is often brought up as a measure of the quality and seeing the huge number of saws available and their comparative features I thought why not just look at $’s per pound. After all Steel/Cast Iron prices are normalized around the world so things should be close. Anyway for my short list here are the results….
Laguna LT18 3000 $2,195, 525 lbs, $4.18 per lb.
It’s an interesting way to boil it all down. LOL
Finally, Powermatic, true to form, completely marks up their product way above everyone else.
Now I know I am going to get pummeled for this but let me know your thoughts!
