I am looking to scrap a craftsman 10” 3 wheel band saw I
inherited on it’s
last legs. I’ve been looking intensely at my choices for about
and have it narrowed to a JET 12” ($300) or a RIGID 14”
($375 but hopefully
I can catch it on sale sometime). Grizzly’s are out because I
their user-unfriendly shipping practices, Amazon is out for the same
other lack of service issues of late. Other 14’s are beyond a
strict budget available. Actually the Rigid is going to be quite a
stretch. I imagine either saw is going to be quite a step up from my
three wheeler. I’ve checked both over at the local BORG’s
fit/finish/features look decent. My usage = serious hobbyist. I may
bit of re-sawing but primary will be roughing out shapes for furniture
(i.e. skirts, legs, etc…). Any opinions on whether the
14” Rigid is worth
the extra $75 or do I stick with the 12” Jet.
