05 Looking for Band Saw recommendations

It's about time for me to get a bandsaw. It will be used almost 100 percent
for cutting wavy edges on normal 4/4 wood. I suppose I could get into
somewhat fancier stuff one of these days, but I doubt I'll ever be resawing
large chunks of lumber.

What would you recommend for a reasonably inexpensive bandsaw? Are the 3
wheel types built well enough to last a long time? I like the wide board
capacity they have.

I've had good experience with inexpensive imported stuff (table saw) in the
past-- partially because I had a good idea what to look for. What are the
critical parts of a bandsaw? Must the raisable part of the blade guide be
*very* rigid? Is adjustable speed important? Are easy-to-get-to adjustments
important?

The current issue of WOOD, a Better Homes & Gardens magazine, has a
article comparing, and listing, the features of various Band Saws.
