Hi Richard

I use a record power bs400 (link below) which has been brilliant. Everything else is handtools. The bandsaw has allowed me to rip and resaw very large stock including trees I’ve felled. It’ll take a 1″ blade and cut up to around 12″ thickness stock. I’ve ripped 9 or 10″ thick stock on it and although a bit slower going at that thickness it still cut very well. Blades easy to replace. Would thoroughly recommend. Easily cuts an 8″ veneer. I think it might be a similar or perhaps same (though rebranded/differently branded) version as Paul’s though perhaps not.
