Bandsaw buying advice

For general information on buying woodworking machines, click here.

How large a band saw should you buy? I've had two band saws in my shop, a nice 14" Delta and an old, small 9", which runs off a washing machine motor. That small one comes in handy when you have the big one set up or it has the wrong blade on it for what you want to do.

But you won't want to get two right away, so focus on your present needs, and what you can afford. 9" saws are around $125 and work fine if you are just cutting small parts from 3/4" lumber. These are light duty bench mounted models that are not intended for heavy use.

12" band saws are more serious, having a greater throat depth. This is a good choice for the small shop that will give the saw light duty.

But 12 saws are limited to a 6 inch high cut. With 14" saws, you can add a riser block (shown above) between the major castings (12 inch saws are one solid casting) which raises the cutting height to 12 inches. This is important for doing resaw. 14 inch saws generally have stronger motors too, which you will need for cutting through 8 to 10 inches of wood.

If you can afford it, there are real advantages to getting a bandsaw larger than 12 or 14 inch. The first major advantage is the throat depth. Secondly the machine will have a lot of power to make thick cuts. Thirdly a larger, heavier machine is more stable. The Powermatic and Jet models shown here are well made and should satisfy you. Before you buy, be aware of the electrical needs of the particular model you are looking at. You may need to run a separate circuit for the machine.

Rikon is a relative newcomer to woodworking machines in North America. They are made in the Far East (like Deltas and Jets), and are getting good reviews.

If you plan to do a lot of resaw consider replacing the guides in your saw with the Carter ball bearing guides shown above. These make the saw much more accurate. Less expensive blade guide alternatives are the Cool Blocks or aluminum oxide guides. Both of these materials stand up well to abrasion, better than the standard guides on most machines, and won't heat up as easily when worked a long time.
