Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Band Saw, Scroll Saw, other?


Dear Puptniks,
I like my Delta Bandsaw also. It's a 16". I bought it off a metal  
artist 10 years ago. It was too light a machine for his needs, just  
right for mine. Like David says-- blade changes are daed easy--  
although now you have to hunt around a bit online to find the proper  
blades. Or order them from the McMaster catalog.
