I’m very new to the Lumberjocks forum and have a question.
I have just constructed a new (small) shop (for tinkering and hobby woodworking/ some light commercial; not full-on commercial) and it will be nice not to have to drag power tools out each time I want to use them.
My main “missing tool” is a bandsaw and I want re-saw capabilities. My experience with bandsaws is limited. Occasionally, I will have projects that have a good bit of re-saw work but (again) this is not for a commercial shop.
Thank you so much for your product reviews (such as Don K’s grizzly review) which I’ve used so far in my search for the “right” bandsaw.I’d like a larger bandsaw with re-saw size at or near 12”. I am economy minded. The saws I’m presently considering are:
I realize this is a subjective decision but thought I could get some good direction & advice off the forum. Don’t want to buy way more machine than I need but don’t want to be “penny wise & dollar poor” either.
thank you, Romain Cooper, Cave Junction, OR
