Yeah, thanks KDC but I think the deal is that the saw in question is not the current model. It’s definitely an Italian made 18 in. saw, I think they must have spec’d it with a smaller motor back in 2003. The 3 hp motor would actually be fine with me, I think it would be plenty of power and I have a 240V 20A circuit available to power the saw. I guess I need to educate myself on what to look for in a used bandsaw. I’ll get to see it run and be able to inspect it. Not sure what might be suspect on 10 year old saw.
