    Bandsaw

    Hi Team
    a bit out of left field but I am after a half decent Bandsaw for my knife making.
    I have tried a cheap Ryobi and it was a lesson in frustration and buying something of better quality.
    I have no brand preferences and age also doesn't matter as long as it cuts well .
    If you have something or know of one kicking about and not been used let me know.
    South Island would be preferable and not so big I can't get it in the back of a station wagon . Thought I would ask before I buy new.
    Cheers Viper

    Keep an eye on Trade Me . They are there all the time . Buy an older , cast frame model - much better built than a current made one .
    Be more involved and less impressed.

    Yeah I agree but most are in the NI , typical when you want one they never seem to pop up but I am in no massive rush so will watch.

    all the Chinese ones about $500 are much the same. the 6x4 they call them in America. tool shed have them. just get a good bi-metal blade. heaps of mods you can do to them.

    The DoAll is just the best in metal cutting bandsaws but hard to find.
