+1 on the MM16. Also look at the Hammer but they are typically a longer wait.

I upgraded my bandsaw last fall and considered the PM1500, MM16 and the Hammer N4400. In the end I selected the MM16 but any of the three are fine saws. I used the PM1500 at Marc Adams school and it performed very well. The fence is superior to the fence supplied with the MM16. You can’t go wrong with any of the three in that size range.

Good luck!
