    Get the Harbor Freight 4x6 horizontal bandsaw. They're like $160. I paid a little more to get one at the local Tractor Supply store, but I'll always pay a little more to buy local. Great tool. For the price, you just can't beat them. Get it, get a new blade and eventually, build a sturdier stand. You'll need to tune it up a bit to get it square. After that, it's smooth sailing. I use mine constantly. Do some searching for "4x6" bandsaw. They are marketed by a few different companies. Jet, Grizzly, etc. There is many webpages devoted to the tweaking of them, and a user group on Yahoo about them. Parts are available and cheap.

    Thanks for the tip, the problem is that I'll need to cut 7" or 8" Stock.
    I'd rather find a very old saw, that's good and square, and made with old fashioned quality. If I have to I'll use a 9" chop saw.
    Again thanks for the tip.

    While not very old, the quality is first rate. I bought this 3000 model Ellis used for $1500. It will cut 19" flat stock on the table. Try eBay or locally if you have used equipment dealers in your area.
