I’m heading to an auction tomorrow and hope to get some info from the masses here. Mostly looking for opinions on quality and “I’d buy it for $xxx or less” type thing. The two things I need to improve are dust extraction and well I don’t have a bandsaw. I’d like to be able to resaw and cut gentle curves in 5/4 hardwoods.
The items are all in near new condition, there was a preview today.
Bridgewood PBS 540 bandsaw. Motor was Italian and I couldn’t find any indication of hp but it was 240v. This I had trouble “googling”. But it appears to be a 22” or something to that effect. It’s pretty massive! I don’t have a real good idea for a value or quality.
Air tech 2000
looks like used on cl are in the 100-150 range, does that sound right? Pros/ cons?
Jet 2hp dust collector.
Again, 100-150. I’ll be exhausting outside with a cyclone or thein type deal from the basic tools. Yea or nea on this being a good machine. My assumption is a 2hp blower is just that and since I don’t plans to use the bags it’s all the same? Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Jet 13” 2 in 1 planer moulder.
Again not much to find on this machine, but I’m currently using a half busted delta lunchbox. Anyone have thoughts on this guy?
Thanks in advance!
