OK, no one throw anything at me, but I'm looking at buying this bandsaw........
CRAFTSMAN® 10" Bench Top Bandsaw <-Link (Canadian Sears Site)
You can also see it at Amazon re-branded as Yukon <-Link
So why would I buy this?
Well at 73 pounds, my kids can bring it back on the plane as checked luggage
I want a smaller saw for detail work and for cutting curves, like them Queen Anne legs, segmented turnings, etc, no heavy duty stuff, or resawing, that Big Blue does well, and this small unit can be easily placed on the workbench when used, and then tucked into a corner when not in use.
So, am I nuts or what?
A The Delta 10" band saw cost close to $450 US here in Japan
This Craftsman saw is on sale for $199 Cdn ($171US)
It gets decent reviews on the Amazon site.
Well, am I nuts or what?
If I could swing it, I'd love to buy a Delta 14" BS, but they cost over $1000 here in Japan.....
If I could get this saw, to me for about $200 US, hey, I'd be happy!
