I'm kinda fed up with my Chinee 4x7 bandsaw. Getting it set for mitre cuts and then trying to go back is just more trouble than I care to deal with any more, not to mention the constant battle to get it to cut straight and even!
So, having recently received a windfall bonus from work, I'm thinking I'll bite the bullet and buy a decent mitre cutting bandsaw. I thought about one of the Grizzly or Homier units, but I've decided that sooner or later I'll have to sell it (hey, everybody has an estate auction of some kind someday, right?), so I might as well buy a unit that will have some residual resale value, as well as being of good or better quality.
The Ellis is obviously a great choice, but even at around 2K$ for the 1600 (or a bit less if I buy direct, I'm told) , it is still a bit of a reach for me financially.
I recently ran across an Accura swivel head saw on Ebay that looks kind of promising, but the picture is small and hard to tell what kind of quality I'm looking at. Anybody out there have any experience with one of these? They're around $1300 + delivery and are said to be better than the Chinese-made units and has a 1" blade for accuracy.
