I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

       Hi everyone, looking for some input on horizontal bandsaws, I’ve found a few older saws near me in my price range, but none with a miter head on the saw. I also have found a used Ellis 1600 (only two years old) that is just about the same price as a Grizzly G0613 with freight. 

      I’m mostly going to be cutting bars of damascus for restacks and tiles. Would it be better to have a slightly smaller blade (0.75”) and run coolant, or run an Ellis with a 1” blade without coolant and without the air cooling system (no compressed air in the shop)?

       Or should I just pick up an older saw for maybe half the price that doesn’t have a miter head?

 

Thanks! 
-Mike
