    Default Recommendations on a Metal Bandsaw

    I need to be able to cut steel, thick and thin.

    Any recommendations on a good horizontal/vertical bandsaw. My friend has a Jet is very nice and Grizzly also has an offering.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a friend that has some Grizzly tools. He has a wood bandsaw and is pretty happy with it. I've also had good luck with Harbor Freight tools also.
    You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.

    ENCO has a few on sale now. I prefer the saws with at least a 3/4" blade.
    I switched to a 14" abrasive saw. Much quicker!

    Thanks for the info. Noticed a 1/3 hp vertical/horizontal saw at Harbor Freight for $169. It's identical to a Jet saw a buddy has. I saw Grizzly's offerings as well. There are several items I'd like to get from them, and will.

    They even have musical instrument kits. Hell, I might build myself an acoustic "travel" guitar. $89, WOW!, plus labor.

    Think I'll buy Harbor Freight's $169 offering.
