MP63 Posted March 10, 2007 Report Share Posted March 10, 2007 I just sold my Ridgid band saw. Fantastic saw, but I found I never used it. If you don't do productions and are just a hobbyist like me, you might not need a band saw. They are nice luxuries, but simple hand tools work just as good. You can cheat with just one little power tool though. Since I bought my Ridgid oscillating, spindle sander, the band saw never got used. A hand held coping saw, or if need be my Bosch jig saw did the rough cutting. The sander is simply the best tool I have ever bought. You still need to sand the edges of guitar bodies anyways, even with a band saw. So for all you people who think you've just got to have a band saw to make nice things, you can make do with a simpler set up. Good luck to all.
