Just an FYI. I had always used Delta and Powermatic bandsaws for the
most part. I never new how anyone could even consider doing any
resawing. Ever. I just figured they were better woodworkers than I.
The shop got a used 20" Mini Max. Incredible. After doing my first cut
on this thing I ran right over, picked up a piece of QS White Oak and
resawed it using the standard fence. I used thoise pieces as
book-matched panels in a little shelf unit which I couldn't finish
because I couldn't find (or wouldn't pay for) 1/4" QS ply.
I'd say a saw from a company that focuses on bandsaws, like Laguna or
Mini Max is worth it. I love Giz and have some of their stuff but price
does not always equal cost.
