Just wanted to share a weekend score! Picked this bandsaw up on Sunday for 50 bucks after seeing it in the local Craigslist under general items for sale. I am very lucky that it was posted there because if it was posted in tools for sale it wouldn’t have lasted. As you can see from the pictures most of the rust is just on the surface. The motor is not shown in the pictures but did come with the saw. It is a General Electric motor with oil reserviors that keep the bearings lubricated.
I would get so mad when I would go to OWWM and see the old arn that guys would score for ridiculously low prices. I’m happy to say that I have finally found a diamond in the rough. The dog is guarding it with her life!
I’ll post restored picks once I am done.
Forgot to mention it came with the light! I took it off so it wouldn’t get damaged.
