I have a really nice 14" powermatic bandsaw, but it just would not re-saw very well. I finished the entertainment center and used some of the money to purchase this 14" Laguna. It has a 3hp motor and a 1" re-saw blade. It really does a beautiful job. Too bad the fat guy in the pic. does not look as good as the saw.
