I saw an add for some older band saws advertised on Craig’s list. A millwork shop had upgraded to an 18” band saw and they had 2 14” saws they were selling. They had listed a Powermatic and a Delta. When I got there this afternoon, someone had already purchased the Powermatic. However, I discovered that the Delta was an older Delta that is in very good condition. It is a 1 HP with enclosed base. Runs smooth. It needs a little bit of tuning and cleaning, but otherwise in very good condition. It even has a sharp blade. Best part, I only paid $250 for it. I pick it up on Friday and will post pictures then.
