I found this old bandsaw listing on craigslist today:

Looks like a pretty good buy, though it needs new tires and some refurbishing. Should I go for it? Has anyone ever used or heard of the Sprunger Brothers brand?

Sprunger was the house brand of “General Sales” I think it was, many years ago. Kind of like the present day Harbor Freight. I had a Sprunger Drill Press for many years. Worked well, no problems.

So it’s sort of like the “Central Machinery” Harbor Freight brand, then.

That site is a good find. Thanks for the link, Walnutty.
