Hello everybody.

I am sure a band saw topic can be a hot topic and lots of people talk about them, but was wondering if anyone out there could help of advise me on those particular saws or has even direct experience with them?

My position is that I am setting up my little workshop and as a first and perhaps last bigger machine in that available space, will be a band saw. why band saw? because I think it is a very versatile machine and quiet, well, not as loud as a table saw and now as quiet as a hand saw for example, but reasonable quiet.

I've been doing my research and budgeting and came down to the saws named above.

the only thing is that the Hammer N3800 won't take an 1" blade, which I thought was the minimum for the saw I want t buy, as this machine should do jobs other machines would, should do.

Does anyone think that there is a significant difference between a 20mm and a 25mm blade to achieve a relatively smooth and straight cut when resawing? or is it all down to the sharpness of the blade?

or does anyone has any other suggestion?

I live in the midlands, UK.

would appreciate some comments.
