I'm looking at buying a secondhand bandsaw and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for my budget around 200-250. I have been looking at the record models Rpbs 12 and Rsbs 14, are these any good for light to medium work? Anything better for this sort of money?

Hi Mark the Axminster ones are good if you can find one. Try and buy the largest capacity one that you can afford.

I think that really any of the top brands just avoid the cheap branded machines. Also once you have got one buy some decent blades for it

Thanks Derek, I have been keeping an eye out for axminister bandsaws but don't seem to be that many selling s/h. Mainly it seems to be the entry hobby ones and like you say probably best to get something of larger capacity. There are plenty of Records about, but not sure if they are as good.
