TenGees If you can wait for a band saw, there could be deals around Christmas. That's how I got my Porter Cable 14" (Delta look-alike) for around $425 Canadian at Lowes. It's beginning to look a bit like Christmas around here already!

OutoftheWoodwork @marecat3 thanks. I was sorry too, but more than that, I think I was ticked, considering the number of expletives I used afterwards

OutoftheWoodwork @honesttjohn I'll post a picture of what I was thinking; they won't weigh a ton, will go with the atmosphere I was looking for in my little "cubby", and should be collapsible. And cost less, to boot Still working on the business card stand/holder I want. Found one that was live edge I really liked, but lost the photo, and I would have to find the wood. If I can talk Amanda out of one of her birch limbs, that would look amazing!!

To answer your question: I want both. Pretty and Practical, and I have to stick to hobby for the next 15 years lol I don't even know how I'm gonna get myself into the craft fair circuit. Can't find any links to get there. We were thinking about getting a camper and traveling on weekends if/when possible. But I have a lot of pipe dreams with this stuff...

DesertRatTom Well, here are the pictures. The saws are roughly 3 feet from base to top. Turns out the both come with the base. Also, you can get blades down to 1/8th for cutting circles less than 1/2 inch in diameter. Carter also makes a back of the blade support that allows the blade to turn even tighter than that. The 1/8th blade breaks very easily so I stick with the 3/16th inch for the tiny curves.

The WEN saw can be delivered at a Home Depot, might take a few days to arrive. $254 for the WEN. You'll have to find an outlet for the Rikon, which is $330 on Amazon. $80 difference, enough for lots of blades.

honesttjohn You also have to display as much product in as little space possible, especially when inside. Do you want to be pretty or practical? Business or hobby? Racks on the outside perimeter and a table or two in the middle lets you display more stuff. You never know what will go and what you'll drag home for next time. Got to display as much as possible. The racks get covered with merchandise so it all looks better.
Just my thoughts from experience.
