Who uses two bandsaws in their shop?

I have a ubiquitous Delta 14" for curves. Typically the saw has a 1/4" blade on at all times.

I also have a Hitachi resaw for..well..resawing sporting a Laguna Resaw King carbide blade. I swapped the factory motor for a 3HP TEFC.

And a Delta 14" wood/metal reserved for cutting metal.

I'm hoping to have a second BS soon. Have a Rikon 10-345 18" now setup with a 1/4 blade. Delivery times are crazy right now. I placed an order on Jan. 12 knowing there would be a delay but its now been 3 rescheduled dates. Some models have a May delivery date. Not sure if its parts delay or companies not having enough assembly people delay.

I have two, a 17" Grizzly for re-sawing and bowl blanks and a 12" Craftsman with Carter guides for detail cutting on my toys project. Also just got a used 16" scroll saw for small parts cutting.

Have never kept track but probably use the two bandsaws an equal amount. Haven't used the scroll saw yet but have a bunch of animals to cut for it's first project. A 3/16 or 1/8" blade worked good on the Craftsman for that kind of cutting. Will see if the scroll saw makes a big difference on detail cutting.
