With this year’s bonus a bit is going to come off the top so I can upgrade my bandsaw. The one I’ve been using for years was built in 1983 and has a 4 1/2″ resaw capacity. That makes cutting out bowl blanks a bit tough. As well as resawing some wood for the toys I’m starting to work on (more on that in a different post.)

I’ll be ordering a Grizzly 17″ bandsaw the end of the month when the bonus gets deposited. 2HP, 12″ resaw capacity – just a lot to like about this saw.

My new saw

My current saw will be going to my step son. He turns duck calls and bottle stoppers, that sort of thing. For him the old saw will work perfectly.
