Perhaps, if I knew what a band setter was or looked like?  Remember, I have handicaps with posting pictures so this might be associated. ;D >:( >:( :D :D

Cooks has a setter that is similar to Suffolks setter and does both sets at one time.  I have been seriously thinking about upgrading to it.
http://www.cookssaw.com/bandsaw/bandsaw-setters.php

There basic model is just like the Wood Mizer unit that I have and it works fine but only does one side at a time then you have to turn the blade inside out to do the other side, then back again to use it, which gets old.

If you buy it from Cooks make sure you let them know we appreciate their banner on the forum!
