Bandsaw Purchase - 12 replies
I’ve been sizing up bandsaws, reading nearly everything I can find about 14 inch saws. Some limiting factors – I only have 110/20 amp service in my garage and upgrading to 220/30 amp is a nice idea, but not an option in the short run.

So I saw this on CL – http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/wsh/fuo/3125973303.html Not sure if I should be angry at the tool abuse or consider buying it for the purpose of dismantling it and “rescuing” the tools from misguided nimrods.

Minor Tool Gloat - 1 reply
I scored a Grizzly G1163 1 HP Light Duty Dust Collector, new in the box with the optional Hepa filtration insert from CL for $75 today. The seller bought it new a couple of years ago and never put it to work after having second thoughts about it. Not a huge score, but it’s nice to run across a too good to pass up deal every now and t...
