I'm looking to buy my first bandsaw , I dont need a large machine, it wont be used. I cant see myself cutting wood much thicker than 3" or 40mm depending on which way you bend so I'm looking at the "hobby" end of the market. I keep returning to the Metabo BAS 261 from Miles Machinery and was wondering if the more experienced amongst you all had any experience of it. I have gone the ebay route but the stuff is either too large for my needs, too much for my finances or is way overpriced for average gear, with no real guarantee of condition. At least buying from a dealer does give the feeling of security if something goes wrong. So there it is, any ideas from the forum will be gratefully scrutinised.
