Why would an electric motor be more useful? Not really concerned with fuel cost; as i said it will promarily be used for ripping. Planning to use it in long batch runs, plowing through logs into lumber, and resawing some of the lumber I currently have.

I have Mathias Wandel’s plans for his bandsaws, just trying to save a bit of work. I can pick up a 14” saw for about 300, (roughly the cost of building one myself).

Yeti, why would you not worry about modding the frame? Wouldn’t it twist with the increased tension?? I understand the need for a heavier tension spring though.
