Well, I picked up this bandsaw off Craigslist last week for $40. After driving about 30 minutes from my house, I didn’t want to come home empty handed. It’s not going to win any beauty contest, but for the price I feel it was a good deal. As you can see it needs some work cleaning it up and definitely needs new tires. Will get some polyurethane tires (which cost almost what I paid for the saw) and a link best and some new blades and see how it works out. Will need to figure out something for dust collection too. I’m excited about the possibilities that are opened up now that I have a bandsaw. Maybe make some bandsaw boxes or some new style of cutting boards now.
