I have one and it is in unregistered but excellent condition. Mine was made in the early 1950s. I put new urethane tires on it and did subroutine maintenance. I have the original Emerson Electric Motor.

Once I got it turned up, it cut great and a solid machine. It is very heavy with the cast iron parts and the table is solid.

The only problem is finding the thrust bearing guides. Mine are OK but will need new ones sometime. The bearings and bushings need oiling and you should make certain there are OK.

A new Rikon 10” bandsaw goes for around $200 or so. Without a motor, I would not pay any more than $50 and that would be if all the parts are there and it is working condition.
