Don't worry so much about which saw you buy. I'd say, many bandsaws can do
what you want, as long as they aren't a $250 cheapo deluxe. Think a lot
about your blade though. You can buy a bi-metal blade which will have cobalt
alloy teeth. This blade will last a long long time and will resist developing
an uneven set. It will cost about $35 or so. Another choice to consider
is a carbide impregnated blade. These run about $100, but I've read that
they last much longer than bi-metal blades, and the cut is incredible. Both
these blades are intended for resawing, although I'm sure you could use them for
other purposes.

My choice for a bandsaw ... well, I own a Delta 14" bandsaw, and I love it.
