I’m looking for recommendations for a bench top bandsaw. I’m willing to invest in a nicer one down the line, but right now I want to keep it under $300. I mostly see Powertec, Shop Fox, or Wen. There is a $375 Grizzly I’d consider if it’s way better than the others. Any thoughts?

Admittedly I haven't looked into this at all, but I do own several WEN products and have found them all to be high quality. I'd research that one further.

I’d consider used, you can get more for that budget. I got a 1940’s craftsman 12” for $50 (they go for around $200 now).

I’d avoid those brands if you are looking for quality and go used.

That’s my plan right now. But honestly my fear with those is the weight and I just don’t know if the age is a benefit or detriment.
