Which bandsaw do you recommend??

I have been looking at bandsaws and I see two that interest me. One is a Delta( about $99.00) and the other is a Ryobi(about $99.00). Is one of these better than the other. Sorry but I don't have the model numbers. The Delta looks better but I haven't heard of this brand(except for faucets).
Any help would be greatly appriciated.

At those prices, I'm assuming that they are both the 9" benchtop bandsaws. There is probably not to much difference in features or quality between the two. Both brands are well known, and reputable.

Hi Senna,
Like Herm advised, both the Delta and Ryobi will give about the same service and features.

Delta faucets and Delta Machinery - two different companies.
If you have heard of Norm Abrams or New Yankee Work Shop,
Norm uses mostly Delta tools: of course he probably gets them free since Delta is a show sponser.
