Thanks for the replies. I will get a cheap metal detector and try that, don’t want to invest in an expensive one. However, when I said a cheap band saw, I guess that is relative. My budget is between $1,000-$1,200 for a bandsaw and will probably want to pickup up an extra blade or two with it

I do have roller stands, six of them actually, nice and heavy ones that roll smoothly. I think my biggest challenge is controlling the long boards. I could cut them down in more manageable lengths, but seems like it is always best to keep long boards long, until you know what you’ll use them for, so as not to limit what can be done with them.

Again, thanks for the feedback, I will take a look at that Grizzly. My main question though os this doable of you take your time with it. I have no real experience with a band saw, so would spend some time with some cheaper pine to practice with.
