Rolly's comment was very understated. The tools available here are very simple and very limited in capabilities. Not only should you get a new band saw but I would get a lot of the newer tools that have laser guidance, and other ease of use features. A laser guided table saw and miter saw are mandatory. Bring you own selection of saw blades, as special ones are just not seen here. The select at Sear is very limited for example. The hand tools that I brought are doing well here but I am running out of sanding belts and there is not much chance of getting them here for a reasonable price.
I am thinking about bringing my woodshop down the next time I got to the states and will upgrade everything if I do. I have a lot of contractor grade stuff from Delta, Sears, Jet, Grizzly and others. Moving up will be fun too as I love to shop for tools. I have not tried to get things shopped to Mexico like Freud saw blades as I am afraid they will not make it ot the duty will be high.
