Where can I find Bandsaw that fits my needs

I am in need of a bandsaw that will cut about 12-14" thick wood without breaking the bank. Most I can find will only cut 6" or so. I am wanting to hollow out logs as in the picture.

That would take one heck of a saw to do that, I think you could probably forget about doing that on the cheap.

you need 12" resaw capacity

Rikon or Grizzly make new ones. If you want old cast iron, then Crescent or Oliver... and others:

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)

Unless you can afford an industrial size bandsaw, your saw needs "with out breaking the bank" will be a real challenge! Consider contacting a wood business that has a bandsaw to do your cutting and at what charge. Be safe.

Nice. There is a Woodcraft literally 5 minutes from me. I'll have to go check that saw out.

You won't be sorry. Simple to change out blades. Easy assembly. I got mine when Sears dropped the price to 649.00...That was ridiculously low.
