Bandsaw Vs Bladerunner x2

|I have both a bladerunnerx2 and just bought a bandsaw as well. I'm wondering if the bladerunner can do the same job as a bandsaw.

I have a bandsaw but not a bladerunner. If you have both, you are likely to be able to answer that question better than I.

Depends on what "job" you want them to do...

Some things just make you wonder, and ask questions.

For the most part, they are not comparable tools. The Bladerunner is pretty much a scroll saw. It's pretty limited to cut height so it won't be able resaw. It's practically a jigsaw flipped upside down in a table.

Well, do a test. Resaw a 14" piece of hard maple on both and let us know which one did the best job

Heck, just rip a 5 foot long 3/4 piece.
