Band saw recommendations

    I'll be in the market for a band saw soon and have done some research but I see conflicting reviews.  Anyone have some experience within my requirements?


    110v only

    I think only 14" as smaller sizes can't handle more challenging jobs.

    Used for general cutting, some scroll work maybe, and cutting to size small blocks or slabs.

    I'm only use for hobby so price is a factor.


    Any thoughts or warnings are appreciated.

    CraigsList is usually loaded with these.

    I've been watching Craigslist but I haven't seen anything in my price range.

    Anyone have experience with Rikon, Craftsman, or Jet?
