    Thread Starter: Matt McGill

    I'm looking to get a band saw for under $2000. I'm a total woodworking rookie ... it's been a hobby for about 5 years.

    Felder v. Laguna 18" Bandsaw

    Another SMC member recently bought a Grizzly G0636X. I don't think he actually used it before deciding to upgrade the blade guides. Without too much
