Hello everyone,
New guy here from TN.  I was telling George that I found this site while researching "lapidary bandsaws" and came across an old link from back in 2012.  It was helpful but was also a few years ago. So I was wondering if there had been any updates, changes, new players, etc to the bandsaws used to cut slabs?  Any info would be most helpful.
Thanks,
Robert

I am going to add a link to the 2012 thread here Robert..
https://gemstone.smfforfree4.com/index.php/topic,11141.0.html

Wish I could be of some help here, but neither have I ever used one, or have I kept up on new bandsaws, or their use.

Consensus still favours the Gryphon C40 band saw, a few of have been using them for years, seems reliable.
