My experience is just the opposite. I have the Bird book but have not
yet read the Duginske book. Bird's book is a good resource.
It sounds like either bood would be a "must read" before spending any
serious money on a bandsaw.

I just got Duginske last night and curled up with it for a little

WW books that'll put you to sleep.

I have both books and have read both cover to cover.
They contain the same information, even though Bird's book is shorter.
(That should tell you something right there.) Bird's book is MUCH
better written than Duginske's.
Even though they contain the same information on saw setup, Duginske
makes the bandsaw sound like some magical tool that has to be setup
just right or else it won't work at all. Bird is much more relaxed
and less intimidating to the beginner. In my experience, I've found
that the setup just has to be close, not perfect, so I tend to side
much more with Bird than Duginske.
I have referred back to Bird several times, but I've never picked up
Duginske for reference.
