  • 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.

          New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

          It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

          Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

          I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
          on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
