    I have the same saw as Bulldog, I've had mine since January and I highly recomend it. My favorite thing is the work clamp. If you turn the handle backwards about 1 turn it is free and you can slide the clamp forward or backward to where you need it, just turn handle forward and it tightens up on your work. Deffinately a time saver. Also 93" blades are very common and reasonably priced.
    Enco is good to deal with too, I haven't had any problems ordering from them.

      That saw is exactly like the Jet I just looked at today. Lots of value, even in the higher priced Jet. How much was shipping or did I miss that part?

      PS- I have a ironworker too, but always wanted some kind of decent saw.

          The grizzly looks like a nice saw also. It must be pretty hvy duty - it weighs about the same as the Turn Pro. Does anyone have one? How do you like?

            Thanks for the up data. I've never heard a bad thing about the turnpro or the higher priced JETs. Any chance that the Grizzly, Turnpro and the JET are the same machine from china just rebranded?

              Can't be sure but I've been looking for a while and there are a lot of 'house' brand bandsaws out there that look a lot like the Turnpro and the grizzly and are priced the same:

              Here's a local 'house' brand example:

              KBC Tools and a couple other local suppliers also have very similar looking units. My guess is a lot of these units are off shore.

                I was down in Houston and found pretty much the same saw for 659$ I was in my Tahoe and I couldn't get it to fit so I ended up getting the 4X6 Jet. They seem to have pretty good prices.
