Hi all, new member as of five minutes ago, figured it’s about time I join since I keep reading threads here after Google searches. :)
I’ve been looking for a 14” bandsaw the last couple months, my primary use would be for luthiery, building solid body electric guitars – so some curve cutting on 1-2” hardwood, and a fair amount of ripping and bookmatching of hardwood 6-8” wide.
I ran across a Craigslist ad for a used Delta X5 28-475X from a guy just a couple miles from home. I checked it out, the seller seems like a nice honest older guy, selling off equipment due to arthritis.
+ rolling base
- no fence
So, a few questions:
- He’s asking $400 – I thought that was a pretty decent price since it included the riser block, but the block by itself doesn’t really do me any good, so maybe $350?
