    They are economic, need careful maintenance.

    Not sure of the regs but I think it is a case of 'you can bring in whatever you like as long as an official gets a backhand.
    We used to have a Bureau of Standards that kept good control of junk coming into the country and maintained production standards within.
    This has been replaced by a Bureau of Corruption. The bigger the bribe the worse the product can be. So the consumer suffers.
    The majority of the machines are eastern except for a few European (Felder and Hammer) and American branded but made elsewhere (Jet) and Nova
    Surprisingly a Felder bandsaw is cheaper than a Jet and better quality.

    IMHO Felder stuff can be superb however our Wood Guild bought the big Felder Band Saw and regretted it was awful.

    Kind regards Peter.
