So I picked up an older craftsman bandsaw (model 113.243311) for $25 with a few blades thrown in. (also got a couple bench planes an assortment of other hand tools for another 20!)
anyway, it’s a 1/2 HP 12”. and it’s my first bandsaw. the overall condition seems decent, and it seems cared for, although was sitting unused a while. The tires look ok, but that’s about all I can tell. I’m looking for advice on:
1. what should i inspect and possibly replace?
so far, mounted with a 1/4” 6 tpi blade it slides through 3/4” stock like nothing. Im very happy i found it.
