New Horizontal/Vertical saw, or Portaband?

Recommended Posts

Hi, folks! I have been putting off a few projects because I lack the correct cutting capabilities (e.g. a Friedreich's cross). I feel like it's to up my game, but I don't have the spare cash for a full on vertical band saw. I have an old 1/3 HP Craftsman horizontal saw that needs some TLC but will function. I'm trying to decide if I should get a vertical/horizonal combo like the harbor freight one, or get a Portaband and mount it to a table. My budget for this is around $300-$450. I'm not sure if need the portability of the Portaband, but I think it's still a plus.
