The 7 x 12 is made better than that.
    I understand the improvement from his to the heavier/larger HF model but IMHO, the Kalamazoo which has a 1" blade and coolant and 2HP will run circles around that HF pos for a long time to come. It's an investment to me, and he'll get his money out of it also, if he takes care of it. Ultimately his choice and has to live with it, so good luck on your mission for a bigger saw.

    The one I have now is the smaller version and was rode hard before I purchased it. I’m open to all options right now. I’m going to look at a Jaespa saw tonight. I think it’s a little large for my shop now but it could be a saw I grow into.

    I agree with you 100%

    Oh, yes! Now yer thinking...

    As with my small 10" X 12" Kasto PHS, (easier and faster to change to different blade type than a bandsaw..) by the time the CNC feed systems are grafted on, JAESPA Maschinenfabrik Karl Jäger GmbH make some saws one could MOVE into!

    A single horse is not enough for 4 inch material if you run sized blade. A portaband has more umph...a portaband. A porta band also has better quality vice.
    I have a 3ph 1hp on my Kysor and never had issues and I have cut up to 8". Blade is 1" by 11'6".

    Our 5 hp (vertical with 'unlitmited feed force' with 1 1/4) does 8" at 3 ipm, going up to 10" it struggles at 1+ ipm. the big h+m with 15 you notice at 18" a reduction in blade speed - after that the feed force is maxed, so about the same up to 36. the hyd mech h-20 with 5 or 7 hp (1 1/2 blade) does not have positive feed, so it doesn't bog, just rubs a slow cut with a cool conic on the bottom tail of cut.

    the Jaespa is saw porn. the dgh vertical.... Going from a saw blade holder to a saw

    The deal is done! The guy offered me the saw for $100 Dunkin' Donuts gift card and I am going to help him sell some other equipment that was included in a building/business he recently purchased. He even offered to deliver the Jaespa for free!

    About 10 years ago, my machinist friend noticed that I was struggling with an H.F. Mill Drill. He made me promise to get rid of it. In return he would help me find a real mill. I did and he did.

    Good deal for the OP here! Remember, friends don't let friends buy HF machinery while there are still better things available.

    Needs a little TLC, but that is a great find, especially for $100. Looks even heavier than my Kysor, could be a little north of 1000#. I would rather have that one over the HF if even they both were $750 a piece. The only thing better about the HF model is it would be easier to move as it is 700# lighter.

    Congrats on scoring a nice saw. Really, that's miles ahead of the HF one. I take it that it runs, keep us updated when you get it home.

    Mmmmmmm maple bacon anything sounds delicious!

    It definitely needs a little love. It fires up and runs smooth. I need to figure out how the auto feed stuff works, but for now I won't worry about it. Moving it around will be a challenge but that's why I own a pallet jack! Thank you everyone for the advice.
