I've built M/C parts for years an I m just tellin' the guys what they need to do about anything on their tractors. They don't hafta buy anything at Grizzly, It just happens that I have some of their stuff (in a bigger version)

Heck, Enco in chicago has the same stuff, but try an stay away from harbor freight on these items I have listed, spare parts are almost unobtanium

Heres a few of the parts I used to make, I have pretty much retired now since I have COPD

You really dont want one of them. Just get a sawzall with a finetooth bi-metal blade an you can do about the same thing.

Or wait an get a saw like I had noted above or maybe even the next size bigger one.....

Like I said to the other feller, I;m not trying advertise for grizzly, I just happen to have some of their equip an a catalog. Myself, I would rather go with Jet equipment, better quality. But Grizs stuff is just fine for 99.9% of the stuff that we would do here

I wouldn't. They were made for making repeated square cuts and believe that it is alot harder to do than say. That said I think that for the everyday use a sawzall is alot better choice, as it enables you to do more with it than a bandsaw ever will.
Now on the other hand if you want to squarly (with tons of practice) cut uni-stut, conduit, metal pipe or all thread rod I would absolutly recommend a porta-band. As long as you don't want to get fancy.

Heres where I do most of my work when I still can. There is a big Grizzzly mill with power feed and a 2 axis DRO on it in the picture to the left, but it didn't make it in.

No advertising here, just showing a pic of my mill an didn't wanna walk out to the shop to take a pic. Easier to get it outta the catalog, besides its all clean this way.....hahahaha

Enco 12 x 36 lathe in back
Jet 9 x 20 lathe in frt of pic
enco sander 12"disc an a 6 x 48 belt
caswell 1 1/2 hp longshaft buffer to polish alum parts
out of the pic on left by mill is a Jet 7 x 14 lay down style bandsaw with coolant

20 quart Burr-King small parts de-burring machine
an several different small size belt sanders from 1/8" to 1" width, mostly burr-kings

Lots of other small presses an other small machines an tools to numerous to mention

But my pride an joy I've had for 30 years sitting back in the corner under the furnace is my miller 35 black face Mig welder that has never given me a minutes worth of trouble.
