Bandsaw power

After reviewing every article and video I could find on bandsaws at FineWoodworking.com, I found that I might have been overzealous in my horsepower requirement.  With the proper blade, 3/4 to 1 HP is quite adequate for resawing up to 12 inches.  I am not running a production shop, so speed is not of the essence.

This will help the cost significantly.
