you’re passing up on a good deal

EDIT: Allow me to elaborate. All the 14” bandsaws are virtually identical. They all can have the same kinds of problems, but all are easily fixable if you spend the time learning how to adjust and tune them. All can take a riser block to increase resaw capacity to 12”.

Only thing I would say is if you plan on doing a LOT of resawing, try to get at least a 1HP saw (if not 1.5). Otherwise, this clearance price is a steal.
