God blessed me with this 14” bandsaw. I seen it on craigslist for 50.00. I couldn’t believe how good it was. The man was a older man so he took very good care of it . He bought it new in 1989. He said it hadn’t been used in 5 years. All I had to do is make a few adjustments. and it run like a top. I’m so blessed,i can’t believe it.

I think I could have gotten 14 of these for what I paid for mine. This of course is a once in a lifetime deal, so I guess it would have taken me 14 lifetimes too. Great find.

Call this one the deal of the decade. I picked up a 14 inch jet last year with a riser block for 225.00 at an estate sale and I thought I was stealing it. You certainly got a great deal.

One of the top tools in my shop. Don’t know what I’d do without it. Mine is going on it’s third motor. Great score! I got mine for fifty dollars, twenty five years ago. I found a Delta.

i’ll give you $60 bucks for it, but that’s my last offer !! Seriously a great deal, that’ll only improve by the enjoyment that you get from making your own creations with your new tool.
