      Personally I think your best bet would be to get a 14' bandsaw. Like any of the new 14' delta, or rigid bandsaws. There is a good 14' on amazon I think for, $400. It is well worth it to buy a 14' over a 12' because the 14' have height attachments that extend the cutting from like 6 1/2' to 14'. The height attachments cost like $70, but you really should get the 14' incase you ever decide you need to cut a bigger block.

        We have created a MONSTER

        Really, BC, I applaud your enthuasism. I was a lot more interested in computer games and the female species when I was your age (Listen to me, I'm 28 and saying things my dad used to say) and carving was definately second to that. YOu've taken what we've said on the board and run with it. GOOD for YOU!!!

          OK I am going to throw our monster a curve....good quotes however bc LOL!!! The best buy I believe out right now for a 14' bandsaw is the Grizzly ..I think the number is G055..but not positive, anyway, it is a 14in, includes the fence and square, which my ridgid did not and it cost me $$ the Grizzly also has the automatic tension bar which is about 150.00 after market....all at a price about 150.00 or more.. less than my Ridgid....which is by the way a good saw and I am happy with it, just is nice to get something at a better price tho too! You can get the riser for the Grizzly also to increase the throat depth.

              They don't mention the automatic tension bar? Wonder if they stopped that??

                Bottom line
                How much money are you willing to spend

                Lowes and Home depot has band saws starting at around $100 and the price goes up from there depending on the size and features you want sure this accomodate 6 inch wood

                Woodcraft has a 12 inch starting around $350

                  That really depends on who you ask😏. If you are referring to my surgery, all is well. Thanks for asking. Technology is amazing!

                  Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
                  That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...
