I agree. I haven't read the others thoroughly, but I own the Bandsaw
Handbook, and it is an excellent reference. I did quite a bit of
looking around (reading Amazon reviews, etc.) before buying this, and
as I understand it, some of his other books are more condensed
versions, or quick reference versions, or have newer pictures, or
something. But the Handbook seemed to be the original, full-length,
lots-of-information volume I was looking for.
Hope this helps,
