Was browsing Craigslist today and came across this industrial bandsaw from the same guy I bought my Delta from couple of weeks ago. I got to see this thing in person. It’s unreal how large it is.

So a friend calls you up and says,”Hey there’s this guy with an 18” bandsaw for sale wanna go see if it’s any good?” And I’m thinking sure it would be great to replace my 14” Delta with one that has a bit more throat…

Would you think to find this beast, good grief!

Bob,
I think this is the planer that you need to go with that bandsaw! To me, this looks like one of the contraptions in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory.
