I posted this question in Karson’s blog about the Baltimore Woodworking Show, but thought this would be a better place for the question:
I also went out to the Baltimore show today. It was a last minute decision and I hooked up with my Dad. We had a great time. I had never been to a show before and was amazed by how busy it seemed. I’ve been looking at bandsaws online for a while and viewed a few that were there. The Ridgid seemed to vibrate a lot when the Ridgid guy demonstrated it, which reminded of some reviews that I read here on LJ. Now for my question – The Cayce Co booth is selling a JET 710115K for $585 plus a $50 rebate. From what I can tell, this is a great deal. Am I crazy if I don’t go back tomorrow and buy one? I had been considering a Grizzly Ultimate, but with shipping it comes out to about the same price, but the JET has a better warranty, is probably a better machine, and is close to a dealer in case I have problems. Any thoughts?
