Subject:
Should I buy the Jet band saw? *LINK*

Pat Taylor
>I've been eying the 14" Jet bandsaw at woodcraft (beats amazon price) and I'm wondering if anyone has has any experience turning blanks with this bandsaw. Is the 6" capacity enough?

I realized that I spend a lot of my time rounding square blanks on the lathe, and I think it's time to give my tools and hands a break. Also, starting with round blanks increases the effective swing capacity of my lathe by not having the corners to turn away.

Is this the bandsaw for me, or should I keep looking? This is the price range I'm looking in. Thanks!
