What type of woods are your typically re-sawing? Also, what saw did you end up going with. I really am leaning towards an Italian made bandsaw that can withstand the torture tests of re-sawing large oak, ash, walnut etc….especially with the price points Powermatic is charging. I can’t imagine the price of an Italian made would be much more.

Great comments on metal make-up for different purposes. The purpose of this saw needs to be able to re-saw tall boards when needed and also be able to cut tight radii for toy parts, etc. With that said, thats why I liked your points about blade material type. What Italian bandsaw are you working with? I sounds like your very well verses in them. the SCM S400P (Minimax MM16) looks top notch, where can I purchase a tool like this in GA without paying out the nose for shipping? I’ve heard Eagle Tools in CA has Aggazani, I wonder if they’d carry SCM and ACM
