I have been wanting a bandsaw for a while. I don't need one a lot but I think it will come in handy from time to time. I am looking at a Wen bandsaw. It is a 10 inch saw with 6 inch resaw capacity. It is a two speed saw and comes with the fence and miter gage. It cost around $220 and every site I go to it has really good reviews. Does anybody here own one or know of another good saw around the same price. Thanks

Even for light use, 10” is pretty small. For 220 you could probably find a 12” on Craigslist. I’d wait IMO. Good luck with your search!

If you're convinced a 10" will serve your needs, you might want to compare the Wen 10" to the Rikon 10" model 10-305. I have the Craftsman 14"( made by Rikon ) It's about $200.00 more than the 10" saws but a lot more power and considerably more depth of cut. I've found it to be a good saw for the money. You might find something on Craiglist.
