Well it's a little on the small side but I've found SIP products to be quite nice, sure they are Far Eastern like most else these days, but as clones go SIP seem to make a good job of it - at least with the stuff I've had. Still got their 01344 P/T which has been very good. If you don't foresee wanting to cut anything thicker than 120mm or wider than 245mm it should do you fine - given that it's in good condition - and you fit a Tuff blade :)

I realise you're probably pretty much decided, but for what it's worth I'd second this. This is the model I have myself, and I've had no problems with it. I put my first Tuffsaws blade in it this afternoon, and it was slicing through 80mm of laminated ash and walnut like it wasn't there. I don't think you're likely to find anything better for £50!

That said, do I recall from another thread that you already have a benchtop bandsaw? I'd certainly agree it's not worth buying another one if you're expecting to get a bigger one in the near future anyway.

SIP bandsaws do indeed make for a very good first purchase of a bandsaw. I used to own the 12in model (01486) before upgrading to a much larger Startrite machine, four-years later. With a 'Supertuff Fastcut' blade from Tuff Saws, I was able to rip some thick sections of hardwood (up to about 6in maximum, IIRC). I did end up replacing most of the bearings (especially the blade guides) with rubber-sealed ones from Simply Bearings and I went through two of the plastic tensioning knobs before I made my own, very crude effort from a scrap of hardwood and an offcut of flat bar. Apart from that, it was a great starter. You won't go wrong for only £50!
