I was thinking a bandsaw and router could provide the same functions
as a table or radial arm saw plus be more versatile. Except for cutting
sheets of plywood, etc., on a table saw, I cann't think of anything that
can be done on the circular saws and not on the bandsaw or router. On
the other hand, I can think of things that can be done on a bandsaw that
cann't be done on the circular saws.
Anybody out there have any thoughts on this? Is a bandsaw as accurate
for straight cuts? Which saws have cleaner cuts? (I'm mostly planning
on building furniture.)
Can anybody recommend a good bandsaw in the $300-$400 range? Or should
I expect to pay more?
