Need some advice on band saw

I'm a novice worker and only have $350.00 to work with so was wondering for that amount what would be my best choice in a band saw....and don't really want a bench top if I can avoid it cause they look way to small for some of the projects.
THANKS GUYS!

If you click on the Product Demo link you get a one minute video describing a "generic" free lifetime parts & service agreement for Rigid tools.
Does that mean that the free service applies to the Band Saw? It's not exactly what I'd call a "Product Demo" so if *that* description is wrong, it's hard for me to be confident that any information found by the link applies to the product.
If the Band Saw does come with free service agreement, does anybody know if there's a catch or limitations? Is a blade considered a "part"? ;-)

Norm Abram wannabe eh? Norm has a router for almost every router bit. You appear to have the same aspirations with bandsaws. One bandsaw for every blade size.

was asking $200, nearly new, rarely used. I jumped to a reply as soon as I saw it and would have gone out with cash as soon as they replied. Unfortunately, someone else knew it was a good deal and I missed out.

Not sure where you ar located but I have that Ridgid bandsaw listed by Doug. I am in SF bay area. It is slightly older style. I bought it second hand a few years back and did only a few hours work total over the intervening years. I will put it on craigs list soon because I have a bigger replacement I use now. If your interested maybe $150?

Don't forget used. I've gotten some incredible deals on barely-used shop tools on craigslist. 350 could get a reeeealy nice bandsaw, at used prices.

I'll vote with several others on checking Craigslist. I bought a Delta 9" desktop for $30. Now it did need a new set of tires ($6.00), but it serves me well. If I ever see a bigger saw - for a similar reduced price - I'll go for it and sell the baby.
