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

I currently have 4 Minimax bandsaws which are my only current Italian saws but have owned 7 other European brand saws over the years. SCM’s NA headquarters is in Duluth. Get in touch with Sam Blasco @ 512-337-9244. He is the SCM rep for hobbyists sized woodworking machines and can take care of you.

Agazzani is dead, has been for 6 years now. Panhans bought them in liquidation and initially seemed like they would carry on production possibly under their name but at this point I don’t see it happening. They weren’t built to Centauro standards more similar to ACM but they had Jesse at Eagle going for them, he really was a great ambassador for them. There are other places to buy SCM machines but I wouldn’t suggest anything but buying directly through Sam.
