Assuming keeping both is off the table, I’d be inclined to keep the larger one instead of selling both and buying a different one. What are you thinking you may need to do that the larger one couldn’t handle? More resaw?

I have a 14” bandsaw and if I ever find myself needing to resaw 16” or something like that, I’ll pay the $20 to have a local shop do it. It would have to be a very special piece of wood and a very special project for me to ever require that (i.e. not probable or certainly not frequent) so I’m not inclined to buy a bigger machine for the one off use.

Personally, I’d rather use the money from the smaller saw toward something I needed more or otherwise didn’t have

All that said, if I’m just dreaming here – regarding your “if you could have any bandsaw” question – I’d want a minimax MM16
