So yesterday I called the guy I bought the bandsaw from to confirm the time for me to pick it up today.

It’s about a 3 hour round trip for me. He answered the phone and I asked the question and I hear a long pause like he forgot I was coming…

Turns out he is going to deliver it at 8AM this morning because he’s coming out here to pick up some other tool. Cool.

Hey maybe I can take the bandsaw to work so I work on it after hours? Nah, I’d feel like I was cheating the Unisaw.

Well——- like the guy said “it don’t get any better than that”. Bought and delivered—- sweet!!

Enjoy that saw, Bothus. You got a good one to play with. I’ve sure like mine all these years.
