I was wondering if anybody has used either the Craftsman or Dayton 14
or 18 inch floor bandsaws. I am in the market for a bandsaw with
metal cutting ability, and these seem like viable options, primarily
because of their variable speed. Generally, I am curious in their
stability and power, how well balanced the wheels seem, quality of
the guides, etc.
Just as a curiosity, these two saws are basically identical in terms
of specs, but for the fact that the Dayton, offered by Grainger, have
1/2 the horsepower of the Craftsmans, offered by Sears. Are Dayton and
Craftsman the same? Are daytons generally of higher quality?
Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks
