            WOW, Thanks for the great info!

            Thank you all for the great info! I was on the fence but I think I will go with the band saw. I got chills when I read about your cold cut blades and a bunch of High School kids... And theit teacher!!! Things have to be very tough, and maybe then they will last!

                  Hey just new here myself, on the forum

                  hellowyo, ya just wanted to say another brand of saw that I have worked with is the HYd-Mech, there are many versions sizes what have you. Good Luck. theweldinfarminartist

                  =hellowyo;155622]Hello Everyone!

                  I am a High School welding teacher, and I need to get a saw for my school shop. We have a chop saw, so I am looking at cold cut or band saws. I want it to cut angles easily. I am leaning toward band saws as they seem to be a little cheaper. I probably have up to $4500 to spend, but hopefully not quite that much. I want it to be accurate, Easy to use, and TOUGH! (They kids can destroy the best of things!) I also would like it to cut 6" box tube or so...

                  I have been looking at Wilton and Balieh saws, but do you have any words of wisdom?

                  Thanks Everyone! I enjoy reading your info very much![/QUOTE]
