I owned the 19" with the electronic motor brake
I thought I was going to set up a mill room, bought a 20" planer, a 8" jointer, 2 shapers, and a 19" Motor brake bandsaw all from Grizzly. That bandsaw was very impressive! It stopped on a dime.
That is a safety feature, not some kooky idea by an engineer. The sooner the blade stops, the less chance you will accidentally stick your fingers or a workpiece into the running blade. My other 18" Min Max with cast iron wheels takes a while to coast down, but I'm always careful around it. :smile3:
I vote for the foot brake......
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
