Found someone selling this IMMACULATE band saw for under $100…it runs perfectly. I’ve been in the market for a band saw, so it is either something like this or a Harbor Freight (UGH).

Anything I should know about this specific model?

I have no idea what a c55kxdae1922a is, since that isn’t a Delta model number that I’ve ever seen. Delta model numbers start with a 2 digit prefix followed by a three digit number depending on configuration (stand type, motor, etc..). The cast iron 14” models should use a 28 prefix (ie: 28-xxx). But for $100, I don’t see how you could go wrong… the 14” Delta remained basically unchanged since they were introduced up until they were discontinued a few years back.

Cheers,
Brad

I just Googled it, nothing there!!!!!!!!!!! Except your post, and the sellers, it is not a model #, maybe a catalog # from some place that sells it.

Yup – your basic cast iron Delta 14” band saw… for less than $100 I’d be all over it.

$100 on that saw is a you need to be on your way to buy it as soon as you see the listing price. Very good price on a Delta 14” bandsaw. And a riser block is available if you ever need more resaw capacity.
