  • Vertical Band Saw

    Who would be willing to give me some advice and/or recommendation on a good vertical band saw to purchase. I do scroll saw, other wood work and like to cut my own wood. I'm looking for something $400.00 to $700.00 price range.

    Thanks,

    Sorry..I didn't see your post! I have a Ridgid 14 in bandsaw and it is a good saw, but.....if I were to buy again, I would buy the Grizzly 14 in with the automatic tension bar..also it comes with the fence and the square for much less than I paid...!

      Thanks Hi_Ho,
      I have been looking at the Grizzley G0555 14' w/riser option. Reviews look good and good price.

      Thanks again,

        Have you bought your saw yet? Just saw this note and thought I'd pass on some info.

        I recommend saving your money and go all hog with a Laguna. $945US but worth every penny. I bought one this past winter and that beauty sings. Cuts a straight as a die (for resawing) and has more power than comparible saws. Uses Ceramic guides, only saw that has them and they are way more accurate than rollers or cool blocks.

        Uses 220 volt power, but that's a minor job for an electrician to run a plug for you.

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

          Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
