I have a large sapele job coming up with lots or radius work in it and we are going to be doing a substantial amount of re-sawing. I am considering stepping up into a larger bandsaw, I just don’t think my 3/4 hp jet is going to cut the cheese.
I am looking at the Grizzly 17” 2hp G0513X2 for $950 and the 17” 5hp G0636X for $1995, was wondering if I should step into the 5hp model it’s more that twice the saw for twice the money. This saw is going to be dedicated for re-sawing, bigger is better right, but is it necessary? I just don’t want buyer’s remorse.
Also considering the H0796 1/4 hp band saw power feeder for $650 verses the G1094 1/2 heavy-duty bandsaw feeder with roller fence for $1550.
This is a 100k residential job so I can justify the cost although I also need to by a tilt head shaper considering the G5913Z 5hp tilt head shaper for $2695 verses the G0608X 7 1/2hp heavy-duty shaper for $3495.
your coments welcome
