This class of 14" bandsaws does it all.
Ranging from $770 to $1,495, these saws give you greater power and resaw capability than entry-level models.
These replacement guides, ranging in price from $16 to $150, deliver increased accuracy. Better still, they fit any 14" bandsaw, as well as many other models.
