I joined this site a week ago while researching tools for my new shop that I am setting up. I just picked up a Rikon 18” 10-345 bandsaw that was still new in the crate yesterday for $900. While I was picking up the saw I seen this guys had a Powermatic PM2000 with 50” rails still in the crate. After some haggling we agreed on $1700. Wanted to check with you experts as to if this is as good of a deal as I think. I had previously made up my mind on the Grizzly “G1023SL” and thought I would order the 52” rails later. $1700 is just over my budget but, my thinking is that this would be my last saw. In fact that has been my sales pitch to my better half.
Thanks for any input! By the way, after reviewing some of the projects on this site, you guys are definitely experts in my book!
