nope... but thanks for sharing the link. For me, with such a small shop area, having a purpose built small bandsaw, instead of the converted handheld Milwaukee's, is very appealing. The accuracy of my tube cuts with a hand held bandsaw leaves something to be desired.

I have one, it's made by Kama.
I think it retails around $999
I like it but at times I wish I had something bigger for those odd ball jobs. Mine has a knob to adjust the speed on the fly and I love that feature

What I miss about my harbor freight larger one is the auto feed where I can turn it on and walk away. These don't have that

Eastwood came out with one a few months back that is pretty inexpensive. I don't think it has auto feed though

I acquired one of these years ago and love it for small pieces. Its cutting capapcity is 2" max but it makes a nice cut and quick. They are hard to find though.

I bought the ABS 120 from Trick Tools at the end of last year and love it. It was worth every last nickel. The ABS ones are automatic feed and the cuts are dead on once everything is dialed in. They are not cheap for sure but well worth it for a quality made tool that will last.
