NotYou Posted February 23, 2009 Report Share Posted February 23, 2009 (edited) My P.O.S. band saw decided it wanted to throw sparks today. Obviously, that's not a good thing around piles of wood dust. It's weak, small, and old and not worth fixing. I fixed it temporarily, but it's done for. I need one quick, but I can't spend too much. I'm in talks with a customer right now who wants a pretty elaborate bass made and his down payment should cover the price of it. I'm considering this one: http://www.grizzly.com/products/17-Bandsaw-2-HP/G0513 It'll give me plenty of room for re-sawing(12 inch cut height!!). It costs $770 right now and I'm trying to stay around that price(unless I can go lower, obviously). If anyone has any experience with Grizzly, I'd appreciate your thoughts, or if anyone knows of a better deal. Room for re-sawing is pretty much a requirement. I haven't been looking long since mine just died today. Edit: I found this one too. I can actually pick this one up, which means no freight charge. I don't know the brand, though. http://www.woodcraft.com/product.aspx?Prod...;FamilyID=20041 Thanks Edited February 23, 2009 by NotYou Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
