Who has one? What brand/size? What do you love/hate about it? I’m talking standup, not cordless handheld.
I’m thinking about grabbing one. Undecided. I don’t really ‘need’ it, but it would make one task I have a lot easier. I have other ways to cut stuff, but thin kerf, small bits just seem like they would be a ton easier. I haven’t used one since IA classes in school.
Yeah- been reading a bit. I keep getting stuck on depth of cut. I like the idea of being able to resaw 8" with a 14" saw, but probably don’t need to spend that much.
I’d spend up to One thousand loonie$, but figure my needs could probably be met with smaller I suppose.
Any brands I should avoid? What’s the min HP that is worth it? I can’t imagine the 1/2hp ones have much in em… not really sure.
If I’m gonna do it, this is the week to do it lol.
Watching YouTube videos they seem to ubiquitous in America, but knowing other woodworkers here in the UK I think they’re pretty rare. My take on it is that there’s little/nothing you need them for, they just make cutting curves a little quicker in exchange for needing a lot of space and money. If you have plenty of the latter going spare then knock yourself out.
