Bench-top Band Saw-Which Is Better??
I'm looking for a small(inexpensive) band saw for cutting pen blanks and other small projects. All other things being equal, is a two wheel saw better than a three wheel design?? I know the 3-wheel design will afford a wider cutting capacity; but that is not a big issue for me. I am more interested in which design is sturdier, stronger, more stable/accurate, etc. How important is having a variable speed motor on a small saw? I found one at Lowe's that has a laser guide on it. Sounds like a "gimmick" to me?? What do you think??
I understand all of the arguments about buying bigger, better tools to avoid later upgrades; but a small saw will suit all of my needs both now and in the future!!
