Rugged Low-Cost Bandsaw Stafford VA

This saw accepts blades from 3/16- to 3/4-in. wide. Its table is 42 in. above the floor, which is higher than most welded-frame saws. Low tables are handy for resawing, but a higher table makes it much easier to see the line on curved cuts.

Rugged Low-Cost Bandsaw

Rugged Low-Cost Bandsaw


Resawing a wide board sure pushes a bandsaw to the max. The more rigid the upper arm, the better, because you'll get a smoother cut. The upper arm is generally stiffer on a saw with a welded frame than on a saw with a cast-iron frame and riser block. At only $550, the 14-in. BW-14WBS from Bridgewood gives you stiff welded-frame construction at a not-so-stiff price. This saw has an 8-in. thickness capacity. That's slightly more than other budget-priced welded-frame saws, but less than the 12-in. capacity of a standard cast-iron saw with a riser block. This saw has ball bearing guides above and below the table, quick-release blade tension, rack-and-pinion blade guard and a 1-hp motor. A fence is included. This saw accepts blades from 3/16- to 3/4-in. wide. Its table is 42 in. above the floor, which is higher than most welded-frame saws. Low tables are handy for resawing, but a higher table makes it much easier to see the line on curved cuts.
