Don’t rule out Craigslist, the classifieds in your local paper or even flea-bay if you can find someone selling close by and can pickup instead of having it shipped. I was looking for a nice 14” band saw and had a $300 limit.. wound up getting a Delta 14” bandsaw and a nice boice-crane 6” jointer for half of my budget limit.. the band saw only needed a good cleaning, new tires and a belt (the usual ‘goes bad over time’ stuff).. and it was an older model so it’s built like a sherman tank. It was sold because the motor didn’t work, which turned out to be a blown thermal protector (easy fix!) due to incorrect wiring by a PO. If you don’t absolutely have to have new, the used market is chock full of deals; you just have to be patient and diligent!
