    Hello, I am a 6-12 grade shop teacher. I have a Grizzly 17" bandsaw I run with a 1/2" blade on for general purpose. I need another smaller saw for more intricate work- a sw ai can keep a 3/16 blde on for bandsaw boxes etc. What do you think ai should buy that will hold up to tons of abuse, stay true, good safety features and within $700-1000. Thank you.
