mitering band saw

I was looking at mitering band saw and came across this one and was wondering if anyone had experience with this saw or company?

Looks cool. Dayton made (or makes) good stuff. It says made in Taiwan so that is a actually a really good sign. The taiwan is 5-10x the quality. The link says out of stock but grainger had it for $550

If the warranty is any good I would get it through grainger just in case it takes a crap on you, they'd be more likely to help you out.

For that price just get this one...

I have one and it's nice and beefy. The one you linked looked kinda cheesy/lightweight to me.

Edit: The grizzly one weighs 176 lbs vs 44 lbs for the one you linked!

How big of material are you cutting. If it is all tubing you should check out a cold saw. Same price range as a band saw, but better cuts, more accurate cuts, faster cuts, plus the blades can be resharpened and no need to clean up the cust afterwards.

Hmm, that Dayton looks like the Dake (says disconn'd) and the Femi HEMsaw on Trick Tools, altho none of the HEMs listed swivel

I like my Ellis 1600, scored it for a grand off craigslist.
I had a 7" x 12" non swiveling band saw, and going to the swivel head Ellis was as amazing as going from a torch to a band saw!

I have used my uncles ellis a couple of times. Awesome machine with made in USA quality. I purchased their belt grinder not too long ago and I think that a nice band saw like that will be next on my list of shop tools.

ended up finding the hf saw for sale and had a 20% off coupon for it so I went that way. But with that being said in the future I will own a ellis saw just didn't have the room for one right now
